Location:
Centrally located near RAI Congress Centre, Albert Cuyp Market & Museum District,
in the Middle of the City


The B & B is centrally located in a quiet street in the popular lively Pijp area.
The Rai, Museum Quarter (van Gogh Museum), Concertgebouw, famous Albert Cuypmarket (largest daily Market in Holland), Canal Cruises, the Heineken Experience and lots of restaurants and coffee shops are all at walking distance. There even is a non-touristic red-light district along the closest canal.

It's also the area between down-town and the newly develloped ZuidAs (where many large companies settle). With the opening of the new Nort/ South Metro (July 2018), our central location has further improved, we're now at only 6 minutes from Central Station, 4 minutes from Zuid Station and even only 2 mintes from RAI.

Being originally an area where students used to live, nowadays it's one of the most wanted areas in town to live in. Most buildings have been completely renovated, and it has a mixed yuppy and student population, with tons of facilities nearby. There are many nice restaurants and bars to explore.

It's also a safe area in town, where you can just stroll down the streets in the evening.

A detailed map of the street's we are located at can be found under facilities.

A short guide to De Pijp:

‘The Pipe’ (its derivation is a mystery) is a quiet residential suburb with a cosmopolitan bohemian air thanks to a large number of immigrants and the recent gentrification of the area by an arty crowd. Running through the centre, the daily Albert Cuyp Market is the largest in the city. De Pijp is also renowned for its restaurants which serve some of Amsterdam’s best Japanese, Indonesian, mediterranean, French and Italian food.
