Overview

About the property

The flat is superbly located in one of Amsterdam's most trendy neighborhoods called De Pijp (the pipe in English.) Public transport stops almost outside the front door in 4 directions. Tramline nr 4 takes you straight into the city centre and nr 3 to the museum district. The area was build around 1895, to house laborers streaming into the cities newly build factories and shipyards. The industry is mostly gone and now it is the young and trendy that occupy the renovated neighborhood.

On another note,

As for payment I ask that you will pay through HomeAway who will present you with a quote. There will be no aditional charges or fees on my part besides what you pay to HomeAway when you book.

Kind regards Herman and I look forward to meeting you

About The Owner

I am a 61 year old man, single, not gay and my best friend is my dog. I have have besides her, a goldfish which I hope you will feed every so often.

Why The Owner chose Amsterdam

As they say in real estate, location, location, location.

Great access to public transport, there is a park around the corner with an outdoor gym, table tennis table, I have ball & bats, and an area around the main fountain where you can picnic outdoors. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood for those who crave nightlife. There is a nightpub on the corner which stays open till 3am, 4 during the weekends. There are several supermarkets within a hundred yards.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Herman, it was really nice spending a couple of days.

The place was as I was expecting from the pictures and the other comments.

It's away from the more touristic neighborhoods, the layout is convenient with plenty of room and balconies on both sides.

The only downside is the bathroom which is small but the rest of the apartment makes up the little inconvenience.

Perfect for a short stay

  • 4 of 5

Herman's place was perfect for the two nights I and another two girls stayed in. It was in a good location as De Pijp is an amazing area to explore. The common area and balcony were fantastic. Only downfall was the bathroom was not big enough (we couldn't sit on the toilet and shut the door). Overall, we were very satisfied with Herman's place!

Lovely little place

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cheap little place, good central area. Don't go there expecting a 5 star hotel and you will be fine. Could do with a better cleaner as it was a bit unkempt in some places but all bedding and towels were clean.

Great host and location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just what you need for few days in Amsterdam. It is well equipped, clean and Herman is very friendly and helpful. The location is great with food, drink and the market on your doorstep. We walked everywhere but there is a tram outside that takes 10 mins to Centraal station.

Thanks again Herman for a great stay.

great location, challenging pacilitys

  • 4 of 5

The apt was very equipped, great location, great hospitality by Herman.

The only problem is that there is no sink in the bathroom (which is very small) so we needed to wash our teeth and shave in the kitchen sink, which was not convenient

ottima casa

  • 5 of 5

Ottimo posto, consigliato per ragazzi, dato che la casa ha le tipiche scale olandesi strette e alte, ma anche la distanza(non eccessiva) dal centro della città. Ambiente spartano, bagno piccolino, ma la casa dispone di un salotto non molto grande, ma accogliente dove passare le serate, grazie anche ai servizi offerti come la grande tv collegata contemporaneamente al sistema audio per tutta la casa e l' unità centrale di un pc(possibilità di vedere in streaming parecchie cose). La casa a primo impatto potrebbe sembrare scomoda e poco accogliente, ma in pochissimo tempo ci si affeziona e ci si vive molto bene.

Herman è una persona molto garbata e disponibile per qualsiasi cosa: siamo arrivati ad Amsterdam alle ore 23.45 e non ha avuto alcun problema ad accoglierci.

Consiglio vivamente di passare una splendida vacanza in questa casa, specialmente per ragazzi che si vogliono divertire e hanno bisogno di un prezzo non molto alto.
