Indische Buurt ("Indies Neighborhood") is a neighborhood in the eastern portion of the city of Amsterdam, in the Dutch province of Noord-Holland. The name dates from the early 20th century, and is derived from the fact that the neighborhood's streets are named after islands and other geographical concepts in the former Dutch colony of the Dutch East Indies. The first street was named in 1902. In 2003, there were around 23,357 inhabitants. The neighborhood is bounded on the west by the railroad Amsterdam - Hilversum (with the Muiderpoort Station), on the east side by Flevopark, on the north side by Zeeburgerdijk and on the south side by the Ringvaart Watergraafsmeer. Indische Buurt is the oldest part of the Zeeburg district and is very ethnically diverse, and a high percentage of the population is of immigrant origin (for Zeeburg this is already high at 55%, but higher in the Indische Buurt) and there are an estimated 100 languages spoken.
The neighborhood is well served by 24 hours public transport (2 trams and 2 buses).
Amsterdam is made for cycling. With special traffic lights and bicycle lanes it is the fastest and cheapest way to travel in and around the city. Bicycle riding is also convenient, safe and lots of fun. Whatever your age, you will see more by bike!

Daniel was the perfect host. Great instructions on how to get there, and he met me at the door with a big smile. Accommodation was immaculately clean, and Daniel was attentive to any needs I may have had. His attention to detail is quite remarkable. Along with that, and his thorough knowledge of the area, it was a very enjoyable stay. Thanks Daniel.
Daniel is a great host. The apt is clean and in a nice neighborhood. I was able to run in a very nice park a couple of blocks away. You cannot walk down to the tourist part of town from his area but there is a bus close by that will get you there. I recommend Daniels Airbnb.
Our stay at Daniel's was really, really comfortable and very friendly - as often mentioned: the perfect host! Good information in advance made it a breeze to find the location. We had warmly welcome with a can of beer and Daniel provided us with lots of useful information (ideas, maps, tipps, how to use public transport, P&R, ...) about Amsterdam and made it easy for us to get a good start for our city trip. He also was always at hand, when we needed some help. The rooms are very clean, you got everything you need for a good stay, and you even can borrow two bikes from Daniel. Like this, we could experience the city like we were living there - by bike. If we were going there once again, we know where to stay ;)
L'appartamento è molto pulito. Daniel è molto accogliente, attento ad ogni esigenza dei suoi (website hidden) ha dato cartine e indicazioni utili al nostro soggiono. Molto comodo il noleggio delle biciclette direttamente da lui: il centro è raggiungibile in 10,15 minuti. Daniel è sempre reperibile al telefono per qualsiasi informazione e, quando è in casa, sempre disponibile per due chiacchiere e una birra...
The room is very cosy, with everything you need, and the area of the flat is quiet and within easy reach from the city center. Renting the bikes from Daniel is great because you can start using them as soon as you arrive. Daniel is discreet but welcoming, and you can rely on him if you need any updated information regarding what's going on in Amsterdam. Great stay, indeed.
We had a wonderful experience @ Daniel's. Daniel was the perfect host - friendly, attentive and always available. He provided us with a much appreciated glass of water on arrival after taking our bags, and gave us a debrief on accessing the city via public transport. He provided us with maps to use for the buses as well as for the bikes (if you have the chance to utilise the bikes available for hire, definitely do so! You won't regret it!). The public transport is very easy to use - roughly a 5 minute walk to the bus stop and a 12 minute bus ride into the city. We had no trouble getting anywhere. Daniel was sure to check in with us over the few days that we stayed to see if we were okay and if we needed anything. The room was well serviced. He looked after us so well. Thank you Daniel!
