Our apartment is situated in the very heart of the most colorful and popular neighborhood of Amsterdam, de Pijp.
This district is known for the vividness of it, and almost feels like a little village inside the city. Surrounded by many boutique shops, great restaurants and both trendy as authentic Amsterdam bars, you are assured that you will not get bored.
Just around the corner is the Albert Cuyp market, the most famous day market in Amsterdam. It will only take about five minutes to get to the centre of Amsterdam, Sarphatipark, Vondelpark, Museum Square with the Concert Hall, Stedelijkmuseum, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum. De Zuid-As and A10 are easily accessible by car, bike and public transport. Public transport to all parts of the city is within walking distance.
Our spacious and comfortable apartment (1st floor) is well equipped and has everything you possibly need. Needless to say you can expect a very clean apartment with fresh linen and towels. The living room, with comfy sofa, is large and includes an open kitchen with a big dinner table. Also ideal to enjoy croissants and a newspaper for breakfast on! Flat screen TV and DVD player are at your disposal in case of a rainy day. The cozy bedroom includes a queen size bed and build-in closet. The additional room, with desk, can be perfectly used as a working space. As is typical in most ‘Pijp' houses, not much space is used for the bathroom. However, after a long day out, it has the perfect shower to freshen up. The apartment will be all yours during your stay.
We had a pleasant stay at Sylke's apartment during last Chrismas holydays.
She welcomed us with a bottle of wine and fresh flowers on the table and gave us many good advices.
The flat has a very long and large livingroom which is the part i liked the most moreover the Pijp area is perfectly connected to the city center /museums and is lovely itself.
I would recommend this place, many thanks Sylke.
I had to stay in Amsterdam for 2 weeks for business and staying at Sylkes place was so much nicer and more convenient than staying in a hotel. Great location and having a kitchen and washing machine available is a great feature.
we spent some wonderful days in silkes apartement. definitly worth a stay. nice neighborhood with trendy cafes and shops.
Sylke's house was a bliss in the charming de pijp area of amsterdam right next a beatiful square w/ beatiful cafes, restaurants, the tram and a famous street market. Her house warm, very comfortable and clean.
It was on the first floor which is something good considering the narrow stairs of old amsterdam houses :)
Slyke was very helpful, friendly and straightforward. Her candles made our evenings feel at home :)
would definetely recommend her house for your amsterdam experience.
Great place, fantastic location, and really nice people.
Sylke's apartment was a gem, located in the best neighborhood in Amsterdam! It's surrounded by many cute restaurants, bars, cafes, and great places to grab coffee or dinner. It was a lively area but not overcrowded, full of people but not touristy - you get the feeling that the locals really do live, work, and play in De Pijp. The apartment was spacious and cozy, easy to access - the perfect place to come home to after a long day out exploring. Sylke was a lovely host, who always went out of her way to give us great recommendations for day trips, restaurants, etc. She is very responsive and sweet - even wrote a note and left a little 'welcome gift' for us. The apartment was very clean and well-kept; I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam!
Sylke was very quick to respond to my request. She met us at her home & we quickly exchanged stories & immediately you could tell she is an experienced host.
The place is lovely, moreover its in a very nice, convenient area, with lots of cafe, markets, tram station nearby.
We really enjoyed our stay at the great apartment in Amsterdam. Niels who handed out the keys was very hospitable and the apartment is extremely well situated in a very hip area full of good places to drink coffee and have dinner. The apartment was nice and clean and the communication with Sylke was very easy, - She recommended some great place to go out! Highly recommended. Thanks you so much Sylke!
It was good experience. Thank you Sylke for warm welcome and comfortable conditions, we felt like home all the time
Nice, lively neighbourhood within walking distance of downtown. If I had to find something negative, the sinks were a bit smelly.
