The place is in the center, but not the "turist crowded" area. It was easy to walk to the main amusements and specteculars, for example The Heineken experienc, Museum Plein ect..The neiborhood is quiet awesome: lots of bars, cofeeshops, and restaurants are there, and groceries and the amazing Albert Cuypmarkt. Our host was super friendly, helped us with our luggage,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June, what a lovely little place!! We communicated with Wienek a number of times before our visit as if you read properly before booking everything you need to know is mentioned so why people complain about having to pay 200 euro deposit, cash only accepted and about...

Good standard for being a budget hotell. Though mostly it was bduget because of we traveled at low tourist season (jan 15-20th), and the prices vere low because of that. The service was really good. The hotell was a small loft for two persons and the room including kitchen and bathroom was really neatly decorated and cozy. The only downside... More

We spent a few nights here in spring. Arriving late to get the keys was no problem, and we got a nice presentation of how the facilities worked. The stairs are very steep but even though I have a bad head for heights I managed very well. In the small kitchenette you have most things you need for a nice... More

I've stayed in Amsterdam many times but probably enjoyed staying at the Frans Hals Loft best of all. We loved the location - super cool vibe, not too noisy with tourists, easy access to transport but easy to walk everywhere if you enjoy walking as we do. As for the apartment itself, it was light and airy, clean and offered... More

Our stay in Frans Hals loft was great - right from the communications with Wienik prior to our arrival. We stayed three nights in the apartment, which was tastefully decorated, thoughtfully furnished (making efficient use of space) and most of all clean. As mentioned on the website the fridge is stocked with food for breakfast which included cereal, eggs, bacon,... More

This July (2014) was our SECOND stay in this cozy and functional attic studio for 2—very Dutch! I won’t repeat everything I wrote in last year’s review, but I wanted to specifically mention that the bed is extremely comfortable. Also, Wienik—the host—is awesome. He is extremely dependable, and there are no surprises. He is trustworthy and straightforward—very Dutch. If you... More

We booked this accommodation through Hotels.com, with our reservation it did not state anything about contacting the owner prior to our stay, nor did he bother to contact us until literally the hour before we were due to check into the Frans Hals Lofts.

We stayed three nights at the loft and found it to be ideal for us - very comfortable and plenty of character. Yes, it's four flights up a very narrow spiral staircase, but the owner was there to take our bags up when we arrived and down when we left. The loft is compact but surprisingly open. The kitchen was... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood 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.
