Appartment in Amsterdam, Netherlands

 
The 3 room apartment has a bedroom, study and living room (with Cable Television, Home Theatre & High End Music System) with a well equipped kitchen. It is about 90 square meters. The apartment is located in a modern (build in 1998)  small scale complex with of  16 apartments which share a courtyard/garden where you can also enjoy your meal on warm evenings. The complex has it’s own garage and a courtyard for outside dining during warm summer days).
 
Our neighbourhood, de Pijp, formerly a working class quarter  is now one of the most  popular inner city quarters of Amsterdam. It is without doubt a melting pot of cultures and nationalities. Nowadays the area is the most cosmopolitan and vibrant district of Amsterdam.De Pijp is brimming with fantastic cafés, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Of course, a visit to Amsterdam wouldn’t be the same without a trip to the Albert Cuypmarket, flanked by over 100 shops. If you walk down Albert Cuypstraat, Van Woustraat and Ferdinand Bolstraat, the main streets in de Pijp , you'll find many exotic and authentic Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese restaurants and typical Amsterdam pubs are located on almost every corner. Also in abundance are the Islamic butchers, Surinamese, Spanish, Indian and Turkish delicatessens and grocery stores.The Pijp is conveniently located near the Museum Quarter (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Concert Hall, etc) and the city centre is also at walking distance (20 minutes).
 
Although walking or taking the bicycle is the best way to discover Amsterdam, public transport is nearby (2 minutes). All major attractions are in walking distance; the city center is about 20 minutes walking. The airport can easily be reached by train (6 minutes) and tram (also 6 minutes). Given the location the main highways are quickly accessible to make trips to other cities and villages.
