It was lovely very cosy, clean and romantic, the views were beautiful. Nothing better than having your morning coffee and freshly delivered breakfast enjoying the view.

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... More

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.

We were looking for a houseboat experience in Amsterdam and found this reasonably-priced option. The surrounding area is cool, it's residential and quiet with several supermarkets nearby. It's a close ride to the center, Jordaan, etc. A 20-30 min walk to Leidseplein. The best area to eat is Eerste van der Helstraat - all local. The Standard room is great... More

My partner and I stayed at B&B Houseboat Little Amstel for three nights. It was great to do something a little different and we loved watching all the boats go by on the canal - the weather was fantastic so all day and in the evening families and couples would be going past. You really got a sense of the... 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.
