Room with Patio AK88 ****
Close to the centre you find this sunny bedroom with kitchenette, study and patio on the ground floor of a totally renovated house, built in 1895. A heavenly tranquillity in the middle of one of the most vibrant areas in the city.
Without any hesitation we dare to call this the nicest room in town, with complete privacy and everything you need for a short break! In a 15 minute walk you are on the Damsquare, around the corner you find the longest market in Amsterdam and within 10 minutes you are by the Heineken Brewery, the Vondelpark and the Rijksmuseum.
The house has bright colours and it offers a perfect combination of old details with modern comfort. The large palm tree in the middle of the patio is beautiful. The room is fairly exclusive and very relaxing with a private sauna and boxspring of 1.20 mtr. wide and 2.10 mtr. The use of the sauna 12,50 euro, but the first time it's free of charge! From the bed you can watch television. The room has a large skylight with an electrical operated curtain.
In the room is a bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. The patio offers privacy to cool off after the sauna, or to take a sun bath. The study/office has to be shared, but is daily available and you can receive eventual visitors. In the study is an second water closet. In the garage you find a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. There are kitchen utilities to prepare breakfast or lunch and a microwave. Two supermarkets and a bakery are only a few steps away.
The house is located in the middle of the Pijp. The neighbourhood is lively and quite busy and there are many small businesses, shops and art galleries established. Not to forget, the Albert Cuyp market behind the house, the longest market in the Netherlands. On the corner are at least 8 restaurants and even more café's, because this is the place to be for locals. You can rent bikes in the street but also walk to nearly all interesting places, the Rijksmuseum, the Leidsesquare, Casino, the Utrechtsestaat (exclusive clothes), Rembrandtsquare and Concertbuilding are all in less then 10 to 15 minutes to reach by foot.
