Centrally located near RAI Congress Centre, Albert Cuyp Market & Museum District,
in the Middle of the City
The B & B is centrally located in a quiet street in the popular lively Pijp area.
The Rai, Museum Quarter (van Gogh Museum), Concertgebouw, famous Albert Cuypmarket (largest daily Market in Holland), Canal Cruises , the Heineken Experience , Diamand Factories and lots of restaurants are all at walking distance. In the Pijp area is also a less known redlight district and 3 coffeeshops around the corner.
It's also the area between down-town and the newly develloped ZuidAs (where many large companies settle).
Being originally an area where students used to live, nowadays it's one of the most wanted areas in town to live in. Most buildings have been completely renovated, and it has a mixed yuppy and student population, with tons of facilities nearby. There are many nice restaurants and bars to explore.
It's also a safe area in town, where you can just stroll down the streets in the evening.
Below we've created an animation for you to get you an idea where exactly we're at,
a detailed map of the street's we are located at can be found under facilities.

A short guide to De Pijp:
‘The Pipe’ (its derivation is a mystery) is a quiet residential suburb with a cosmopolitan bohemian air thanks to a large number of immigrants and the recent gentrification of the area by an arty crowd. Running through the centre, the daily Albert Cuyp Market is the largest in the city. De Pijp is also renowned for its restaurants which serve some of Amsterdam’s best
ethnic (Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese, Turkish etc) food.
We are located at Van Ostadestraat 66, 1072 TA Amsterdam, The Netherlands (show on map)
From Central Station: Tram 24
Tram 24 now stops at the Ceintuurbaan around the corner from the B &B and it goes every 4 minutes . From Central Station we are at the 6th tram stop "Ceintuurbaan/ F Bolstraat" and the journey to the B & B is less then 15 minutes (by tram 24).
After getting out of the tram, walk into the Ferdinand Bolstraat (with a bakery at one and bookshop at the other corner)
and take the 1st street to the right(= Van Ostadestraat, Nr. 66)
From the Airport:
Best from the Airport is to take a train to Amsterdam Zuid station (so NOT to Central Station). The trains go every 5 minutes from "spoor 3" (platform 3) and the train journey takes 7 minutes (first stop).
Outside Amsterdam Zuid Station (take exit Zuidplein) you can or take a taxi for about 12 euro or take tram 5 in direction Central Station.
TRAM: The tram stop is on the other side of the Zuidplein (South Square). Get out at the 4th stop Roelof Hartplein (about 5 minutes).
Please note a tram only stops if passengers want to get out or in , so look on the monitor in the tram to see which stop is next. When you are on the tram you should press on one of the buttons provided for a stop request.
So get out at the tram stop Roelof Hartplein , take first street right (=Roelof Hartstraat), continue walking untill you cross a bridge over a canal (the streetname changes in Ceintuurbaan after the bridge) Take the 2nd street to the right (=Dusartstraat) and then the first right = Van Ostadestraat 66.
(From the tram stop Roelof Hartplein to the B &B is about 5 minutes walk)
From the A10 (= Amsterdam ring)
