Interaction with Guests
I live at the 3th floor so if there's anything you need, please let me know. You can knock on my door or just give me a call. It's my pleasure to be your host!
Located in the "Pijp", one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts of Amsterdam. The area the "Pijp" is very popular among young urban professionals. I like this specific area because it's the older and more beautifull part of the "Pijp"'. You can find lot's of nice restaurants and pubs in the neighbourhood. The Rijksmuseum is in sight from here and the house is situated next to a canal.Just a short tram ride south of Central Station & on the border of the historical city centre with nice shops, restaurants, pubs. Just around the corner of the famous "Albert Cuyp" market and the "Heineken" brewery. Within 5 minutes walk to "Museum" square and nightlife centre "Leidseplein".
There are lot of possibilities to travel from this point to where ever you want. Walking, bike rental or tram are easy to use. You can park your car in front of the door but it's expensive: € 36,- for a day.
From Shiphol airport to the studio: You can take a cab but's quite expensive. Tip: download or use the Uber app on your smartphone and choose uberpop for low taxi rates.
Other option is to take bus line 197 to Amsterdam
From Central Station:
Tram 16 and 24: in direction to VU medisch centrum
Tram 4: in direction to Station RAI, stop: Ceintuurbaan.
Tram 12: in direction to Station Sloterdijk, stop: Ceintuurbaan.
Other Things to Note
Because i live at the 3th floor and also being responsible for my neighbours, there are some little rules:
- please don't play (loud) music
- no smoking inside please
- Please don't talk at the terras after 23:30
Ruud war ein sehr freundlicher und netter Gastgeber! Er war sehr hilfsbereit, auch mit Tipps und bei der Unterbringung unseres Autos! Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in dem Appartement, das zwar klein ist aber sehr gemütlich. Da wir schönes Wetter hatten, konnten wir auch die schöne Dachterrasse nutzen. Und es gibt großartigen Kaffee! Es liegt sehr ruhig! Und günstig zum Museumsviertel und am Rande der Innenstadt in einem netten Viertel. Alles ist gut zu erreichen. DANKE!
Although we didn't meet in person with Ruud due to overlapping schedules we had a very nice stay, we communicated flawlessly over phone/message and everything was perfectly arranged. The was tidy and exactly as advertised. Perfect for a short stay with 2 or 3 people!
Mijn vrienden hebben een zeer prettige ervaring gehad in Amsterdam. Ze hadden alles wat ze nodig hadden bij Ruud en werden zeer hartelijk ontvangen!
much smaller then it looked like, other then that coxy and good welcoming. top floor, and the stairs was too steep!
Hi Ruben, thank you for the honest review. I would like to comment that the first couple of pictures on Airbnb are shot by a professional photographer with a wide angle lens. To avoid misunderstanding i put a comment under the photos: 'Professional photo taken with a wide lens'. When you look at all the pictures you can see that there are also pictures without the wide angle lens. So can see the difference. I did this to give people a fair impression of the room. Unfortunately you had a different thought of what to expect.
About the stairs...well, that's Amsterdam. I didn't knew you would bring some rockband cases with you for the gig you played in cafe Cox. ;-)
I hope you enjoyed your stay in spite of some critical notes and when i travel to Norway, i will let you know.
Хозяин гостеприимен, дружелюбен. Обстановка может показаться слегка тесноватой если разобрать диван, но мы с лёгкостью поместились вчетвером в помещении. Всё чисто, прибрано. *Потрясающий балкон и вид с него*.
Excellent host, with key location just a few minutes from the best museums in Amsterdam. Should be aware of the limited space, including a 1/4 bathroom that incorporates a toilet and shower with no sink. One issue was resolved expediently and with class by Ruud. Overall, a nice visit to Amsterdam.
Thank you for visiting my Airbnb studio. I'm 34 years old and i live in Amsterdam for five years now. I absolutely love the city of Amsterdam and especially this area 'de Pijp'. During the week i'm an entrepeneur in the field of professional education. When i'm not at work i like to hang out with friends, take a run or read a book in the Vondelpark. I like to cook, play tennis and sometimes golf. During wintertime i love to go skiing. I'm always in for a good conversation, i'm interested in other people and i like to invest in my own personal development. If you want to know more about me, please ask!
