This is a lovely comfortable three room first floor light filled apartment with everything you need, perfect for a couple or two friends. Two extra people could also sleep on the fold out sofa bed. It has facilities such as wireless internet, TV, an equipped kitchen, a dining table for four people. Everything else is right around the corner as the apartment is located in the heart of “De Pijp”, one of the coziest and funkiest neighborhoods of Amsterdam.
De Pijp is well known for its lively streets, small shops, intimate restaurants, cozy cafes, many terraces and authentic Amsterdam charm. It is the place that Amsterdamer’s love to go out and catch a drink or just grab a bite to eat. This apartment is ideally located just around the corner from bars and restaurants.
The apartment is located in walking distance of the popular attractions; Rijks Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Vondel Park, Sarphati park, Leidse Square (bar/café/club scene) and the biggest one; the Albert Cuyp market. The Albert Cuyp is one of the largest open markets in Europe. A great place to grab some fruit, vegetables, fish, clothes and all kinds of other items. In and around the Albert Cuyp market there are many lunchrooms. There you will find simple but excellent meals with a choice of many international cuisines including Indian, Kurdish, Turkish, Cambodian, Surinam and Chinese.
To get to the commercial city centre take a nice 10 minute stroll through the 17th century streets of Amsterdam, or rent a bike and experience the city like the locals do. Public transport is also very convenient with a tram stop just around the corner.
No smoking inside and respect the neighbours, no loud noise after midnight.
Place is located right next to the popular market! Very accessible to a large variety of food! Nice and peaceful neighborhood.
This apartment was not clean. The bath room smelled really bad and the owner left his worn underwear in the bedroom after we just arrived. We had quite some complaints and were really disappointed, but he replied after our complaints and said he'd give us some of our money back. So although the apartment was a disappointment, that's actually quite nice.
I was using Petes apartment this automn holiday with my wife and 2 kids. There was plenty of space for all of us and we really felt like home in this cozy and nice apartment that had such great atmosphere and the location couldn´t be better.
Pete was the perfect host, answered to all emails very fast and very informative about everything, clean sheets and towels when we arrived, free wi-fi and so on, nothing to put a finger on.
We can highly recommend for everybody to use this apartment if you are planning to visit Amsterdam.
nice location but better for two young boys to stay instead of girls or family
The main strength of this apartment is without a doubt the location. We've been to Amsterdam few times before, but never stayed in DE Pijp (pipe) area. This cool neighborhood with its great and colorful Albert Kuyp market made all the difference, and Peter's apartment was in the best location for that.
Peter wasn't at the apartment but he left us in advance all the details that we had to know and check-in/check-out times were to our decision, which was great.
All to all, was a great weekend in Amsterdam, the apartment gave us lots of time to enjoy this lovely neighborhood and also to walk to our other favorite places in town (mainly Jordaan).
