This was a truly lovely apartment: just around the corner from a large supermarket and a prominent tram stop, and a stone's throw away from a beautiful park. The apartment itself was very comfortable and modern, spacious and clean. The back garden was my favourite spot to relax for hours at a time: the shade from the trees let in gorgeous shavings of sunlight, the whole area around the garden was wonderfully quiet and peaceful at all hours of the day and night, and the local cats were always shuffling about the area looking for love and attention! I'll definitely be staying here again if I ever come back to Amsterdam!
My wife and I recently spent two weeks in Amsterdam to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we chose this apartment because we heard such great things about the de Pijp neighborhood. The apartment is clean, adequately furnished and just the right size for two adults. The kitchen has all you need to prepare any meal. Our favorite feature of the apartment by far is the patio. Very peaceful, quiet and beautiful. The manager, Olav, was very pleasant and professional. He was very helpful guiding us to essential needs like groceries and laundry (both only a short 5 minute walk away). Olav also replaced the towels and removed the trash every couple days. Overall, this apartment is ideal for a single person or couple who want to live like locals in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Amsterdam. So many restaurants, cafes and coffeeshops within walking distance (the gelato shop half a block away became a daily indulgence!) you’ll have a hard time getting to all of them. Overall, a 10 apartment in a 10 neighborhood in a 10 city makes for a 10 vacation!
Spent Christmas visiting our son in de Pijp. Apartment was just what the two of us needed to cook and host a full turkey Christmas dinner for 4.The kitchen is very well equipped with a large oven and a very appreciated espresso machine ! The owner Olav is very friendly and helpful and caterred to our every need including a lighted Christmas Tree! Being tucked in behind the "OFFICE" filtered out any road noise and the little garden was a nice addition. We will definitely try to reserve the cozy Apt. whenever we visit de Pijp. Thanks Olav!
We had a 2 week stay in Olav's studio in de Pijp. It worked perfectly for us. It's a studio so just one reasonably sized room with TV and computer and couch, as in photo. Not a lot of storage but ok. Good kitchen with everything you need. Small bathroom but all worked well. Really comfortable beds, reading lights, good curtains to make the room dark for sleeping. Area is great, restaurants everywhere, supermarket round the corner, laundry up the road, and not so touristy, markets a couple of blocks away, trams nearby and good 20 min walk or so into centre of town. Major museums easy walk away, and Olav was a good host. We did an eating tour of the city on our first day with Hungry Birds, would recommend. And a city bike tour next day to orientate ourselves with We Bike Amsterdam that we really enjoyed, did a country bike ride with them too that we loved. If you want a really good meal out, Sinne just a block away is a one star michealan restaurant that we just happened upon and had a fabulous 3 course meal for Eu 38 a head. Great place to stay!
We stayed here as we had tickets to watch the European Athletics at the Olympic Stadium. The apartment was ideally situated for this, with us walking one way and returning by tram. The restaurants in the local area are far more pleasant and reasonable than the center of Amsterdam and had a real buzz about them. All in all a very pleasant stay.
