About This Listing
Cosy and light apartment on the 3rd and 4th floor of a monumental building, built in 1885 (!), in the populair neighbourhood 'De Pijp'. This neighbourhood is known for the vividness of it, and almost feels like a little village inside the city. The Albert Cuyp market is the most famous day market in Amsterdam. It will take about five minutes by foot to get to the center of Amsterdam. You will also be able to take the tram, stops are only a three minutes walk from the apartment. De Pijp is also known for it's shops, bars and muliticultural restaurants. The Sarphatipark and the Vondelpark are just around the corner. You will make it to the highway (A1, A2 and Ring A10) in just a couple of minutes.
The apartment: entree on the third floor of the building (there's no elavator in the builing, so prepare for some stairs), which gives access to the large livingroom, which overlooks the market on the front site of the apartment. Here you will find a small bathroom with toilet and a kitchen. The kitchen has a microwave, oven, dish washer, coffee machine, water boiler, fornace and a refridgerator.
On the fourth floor, you will find two bedrooms and a large, luxurious bathroom with toilet, bath and separate shower. Please note that this bathroom has an open wall(!) The largest bedroom is on the backside of the building, and has a small, but sunny terrace. In this room, there is a double bed and a single bed.
The smaller bedroom also has a double bed and a single bed. For children, we also have two beds built about a meter from the ceiling. Adults could sleep here too, but they might have a little trouble climbing up there.
Take the stairs to the fifth floor and you will be amazed by the wonderful view over the city from the sunny and very large terrace. On this floor, you will also find a large refridgerator, which makes it easy to have drinks while enjoying the sun or even BBQ. The apartment is also very suitable for children.

Julia was always reacting very fast to all of my questions. We felt really welcomed at her apartment. She was very open and uncomplicated. We even could leave our luggage, even so we were too early. Thanks a lot!
The listing description is accurate, the flat is very well located, in a nice area with a very nice market downstairs (20 minute from the train station with the tram and 40 minutes on foot) . Julia welcome us and explained us everything. Not super clean, but clean enough, ideal for a group of friends.
Me and 7 of my friends stayed here and I cannot fault the place at all, Julia was lovely and she answered all of our questions, the apartment was in a great location and easy to find. I would definitely recommend this place.
Our stay at Julia's place was overall great!
15 minutes walk to the center - Dam square (really not that bad), 10 minutes walk to Leidseplein, very close the Heineken Experience museum and the Albert Cuyp market is just outside the apartment. The closest supermarket is 3 minutes walk.
As for the apartment itself - we were a group of 7 guys, the bedrooms were suitable for us, the living room and the roof terrace were great!
The big bathroom on the second floor (2x Bath and one toilet) has only a curtain for the entering room, no door. This was not really comfortable even for 7 grown-ups.
This wasn't the only bathroom, there is also on of the first floor (which is regular).
The kitchen was well equipped but the dishes were dirty although there is a dishwasher.
Our experience was good, recommended for a group of friends for it is cost-effectiveness.
Great location, amazing bars and restaurants around, close to all the cool local stuff too. I was there for 4 nights, with 5 people and bedding was comfortable, kitchen is relatively small and dirty. It made us not want to cook. I have to say that the house is very very cute, especially the living room and the terrace, but the bathrooms are not very clean. Overall it is great place but a bit dirty.
Overall perfect for our group of 7 girls aged 22-26. Julia gave me all the information needed when I originally booked and made me aware that she would be away during our stay therefore her friends would check us in. A key was left in the keysafe and we let ourselves in as we arrived at 10.30pm. I had contact with a friend of the host who said they would check us in the next morning but I said there was no need if not necessary (therefore we did not meet anyone during our stay).
It's two rooms with plenty of space and a sofa bed downstairs also. The bathroom / shower did only have a curtain but with good friends that was not an issue. The downstairs bathroom however has a strong bad smell and so we didn't use that at all. This didn't affect the apartment at all once the door was kept closed.
We were able to cook a dinner for seven in the house. The markets outside our door were fantastic and we got everything we needed there. The area all around the apartment is lovely and we went to some nice cafe's and bars. It was only about 20mins walk into town, we didn't need to get transport once.
Overall great experience and exactly what we needed.
La communication avec Julia est très bonne. Nous étions 10 personnes a séjourner dans l'appartement de Julia. Celle-ci a mi à disposition des matelas pour que tout le monde puisse dormir dans ce grand appartement. L'appartement a tout à fait convenu à notre groupe ainsi que la grande terrasse sur le toit. Le quartier est calme et proche d'une place animée avec des bars et restaurants. Par contre, il y a que deux salles de bains dont une sans porte... Il faut tiré un drap qui ne fait pas toute la longueur! Cependant, ça na pas rebuté les plus exhibitionnistes du groupe et malgré cela je recommande cet appartement dans lequel on a passé un excellent weekend.
