There is also a street market which is a 10 minute walk away. Don't believe the reviews my room was really...

Stayed here in November and payed on arrival. Then in December they took the money again then this morning another payment has been taken! The hotel says it's booking.com at fault and booking.com say the hotel? So now I'm overdrawn in my bank and nobody is taking the blame. Never again

Clean and modern rooms, and good location (30 minute scenic walk from centre). Some staff weren't very welcoming and lack of storage facilities in the actual rooms (wardrobes, shelves etc.) Yes there is a smell on the ground floor but not in the the actual rooms. Good for a few nights stay.

The WiFi they supposedly provided didn't reach our room, the room had cigarette butts in it, a broken TV and cupboard was set in the hall way to our room, the other room that shared outlet hall way was boarded up but was being used still. A whole in the wall was patched up with a football emblem. There was...

After reading reviews was very apprehensive about 5 day stay. However found our twin room to be well kept, with everything in working order. Staff seemed to be attentive and came to collect dirty towels each day and empty bins, friendly receptionist. The hotel is in a good location near to some nice places to eat, coffee shops and the...

This a really late review as I stayed Feb 2016 however I have finally gotten round to doing it! After reading the awful reviews I was really expecting the absolute worst however when I arrived I was 'pleasantly' surprised to be quite honest. The staff were friendly and very helpful (printing out our boarding passes for us and asking for...

I stayed at the hotel whilst on a business trip. I was a little bit concerned after reading the reviews but thought I would give it ago. The building you check into (1 min walk from the place you stay) is not nice. It is dark and has a bit of a smell. The rooms were nice but basic, but...

Possibly the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. Nothing was clean, rats found in the wardrobe, worst employees I have ever met. Manager does not deserve to work in this industry by the way she treats her guests

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.
