We had three nights here at Little Amstel in the standard room and the basic room, fine for a family of four. First impressions were that the rooms were very clean and very small but with amazing views, especially the standard room looking down the Amstel. The houseboat is in a great position, close to everything. We never met anyone...

We have just come back from Little Amstel. It was amazing. The houseboat was so clean, lovely comfy bed, and the view was fantastic. We did not see Mirjam but a very nice man (and his dog!) The breakfast was awesome and different every day. The ducks liked it too! We loved it so much and will definitely come back.

What a wonderful place to stay! We have just had a short stay in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. We stayed in the basic room of this houseboat. It is a tranquil and relaxing place to come back to after a day in the bustling museums and city streets. It is magnificent to just sit and watch the barges or...

This is a real little gem of a place. It is very restful and relaxing, the hosts provided everything that we needed and made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts are perfect, a little bit different every day. We loved waking up each morning to watch the Amstel river flow past. Just one point - the address is actually Amsteldijk...

A reasonably priced houseboat on the Amstel river, both my fiance and I loved the idea, and it was well worth it. Loved the perspective of looking onto the river and the rowers, commuters and ducks who would float by from time to time. At the very outer limit of the canal ring, close to Tram stops, and a nice...

We stayed there over a weekend trip from Brussels and it was amazing. The location was top notch and the breakfast cannot be beaten!! I would stay there again and again and tell all my friends to do it if you want something totally different.

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.
