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.

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.

Good apartment, good location and good amenities. Recommend for travelers.

  • 5 of 5

Herman provides a good apartment and everything as indicated in the pictures. The apartment is modest size as shown, but everything you should need is here. The apartment descriptions are accurate for size and furniture provisions, but there are numerous amenities outside of the apartment that make it a great location for a traveler.

The No 4 Tram line stop is 1 block from the front door. The efficient Tram system provides an easy 10-15 minute ride to central Amsterdam and Central Rail Station. Several Restaurant choices are within blocks of the apartment. A local Marqet Grocery Store (2 blocks) (equivalent to Whole Foods (for USA peeps)) provides all the foods needed to eat at home. The Kitchen is fully equipped.

A short walk to the museums, Heineken Experience, connecting Trams, bus routes and canal rides.

Herman availed himself to greet us even after our late arrival and he answered questions about Amsterdam for us.

I see comments about the steep stairway, and a small bedroom but this is shown in the pictures. The stairway is typical for these buildings in Amsterdam.

I would rent here again.
