We come to Amsterdam every year for our birthdays. Every year we splash out on an expensive hotel. This year we wanted to stay in a houseboat. I am so glad we did. Little Amstel is a gem brilliantly located close to the metro (the metro takes 5 mins to Amsterdam Centraal Station). Gorgeous room - and although we had...

Perfect accommodations for 3 nights in Amsterdam. Clean, comfortable with beautiful view and great breakfast brought to our door every morning. Outside of the hub of the action, but close enough to walk to. We'll definitely try to stay here again on our next visit to Amsterdam. Mirjam is a lovely, welcoming host.

We had a Beautiful stay in Amsterdam in july 2014. Some of the reason was the fabuelous houseboat Little Amstel, the delux room! Clean, cozy, near (almost) all the sightings we wanted to experience. The owner, Mirjam, was a very helpful, charming, and warm hostess. A bit noise from the bridge, but not enough to be a problem. It was...

From Australia I needed to spend one night in Amsterdam on my way to visiting my mother in Leiden. I found accommodation in Amsterdam very expensive until I came across this absolute gem. I had the basic room which was perfect with a dual view with the morning sun beaming in on a cool day. Breakfast was plentiful. For something...

We spent 3 nights here, and had a wonderful time - we really didn't want to leave. The best thing about it, I think, were the fabulous views over the River Amstel. It was specially lovely to wake up and see the mist across the water - or maybe it was better at night to see the lights reflecting on...

My husband and I stayed at Little Amstel for 2 nights and we loved it! It was great for us that usually stays in a sailboat on vacation. The clean room, the view, the breakfast i a paperbag, the location and Mirjam`s service were excllent! We will recommend it to all our friends that love boats.

Mirjam was awesome! Communication with her was so fuss free! And the little amstel is a 10 to 15mins walk away from the heineken brewery and a 8mins walk to the nearest tram stop. Everywhere in amsterdam is really convenient so i felt i made the right choice by staying at the little amstel! Breakfast provided was so good and...

We stayed for a weekend on this lovely houseboat. The room was clean and small but nice. We had a fantastic view. Every morning breakfast is brought right to the door. It was delicious - for us and for the hungry ducks too. Staying on "Little Amstel" Houseboat is a good alternative to passing the night in a hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was a fantastic place. A little bit of a walk to most things but it was nice being in a quiet location. Breakfast is brought right to your door and you can enjoy the water views while having a coffee or tea, which is provided in the room. Rooms...

We stayed for 3 nights on march 2014. Great view and well located. Small room with everything U need, even free wifi (absolutely needed for our first trip to amsterdam). The only bad point is that it's a little bit noisy by night because of the location next to a bridge. every morning some ducks came to share our big...

Staying in De Pijp

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
