Small but nice, modern and clean room with really everything you need (even free WiFi). We were there in February and room as well as bathroom have a heating - no freezing at all. Good location near Metro station, nice view, lovely ducks swimming around you and watching you during breakfast. Price ok. I'd come again!

Thanks to Mirjam for this wonderful location. We slept very well. It was our first overnight on a boat and it was fantastic! A beautiful view on the river Amstel, very central located to the hotspots in Amsterdam and a tasty and huge breakfast in the morning. The room is modern with chosen materials and styles. Everything is very practical...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights in November. We are regular visitors to Amsterdam from the UK and had decided to try a houseboat rather than a hotel for a change on this trip. We were welcomed by a huge heron who was standing guard by our door way! We were in the far right room (with...

Stayed in the "Basic Room". Very good use of space and extremely clean and modern. Mirjam, the host, was very accessible throughout our stay and helped arrange for bike rentals and taxi to airport and made sure we had everything we needed. It's situated on the Amstel River in the De Pijp neighborhood which is well-worth exploring. There are great...

This houseboat was not quite as central as we thought and the neighbourhood has nothing special but what an incredible little gem! Fantastic view, very charming, extremely clean and well maintained. Breakfast very good too and brought in the morning by a very friendly host. Highly recommended.

They are small rooms but very comfortable and cosy. Very warm in Winter nights. Breakfast is delivered to the room every morning and it is very good. Selection...

See the first picture, with the adjoining windows? That's where we 60-somethings spent three nights this second week in November 2013. The hubby goes for luxe at an affordable price, and I, the wife, shop, shop, shop. I convinced him that pulling our rental car over to the side of the road and offloading our baggage was an advantage. Though...

We took Trip Advisor's advice and booked two nights in Amsterdam at Mirjam's Little Amstel Boathouse B & B during the second week of our month long European trip. It sounded romantic and unique and it was everything we hoped for. Although we got a little confused in finding the location some kind local help got us there. Mirjam made...

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.
