Bed & Breakfast Downstairs in Amsterdam, is a nice family owned accommodation, centrally located in Amsterdam.

Guests have access to a private computer with free Internet access.

The Rooms:

To help you experience Amsterdam as good as possible there are things like posters, old pictures, maps & guides in the rooms. We don't do breakfast, but the rooms are more like apartments. In each room there is a small kitchen with free coffee, tea and hot chocolate; and a refrigerator to keep your food and drinks cool.

If you don't like to sleep together you can make from the double, two single beds.

The rooms feature:

  • Colour TV

  • Bikes for rent (best way to see the city)

  • Bathroom with shower and toilet in the room

  • Small kitchen, with free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate

  • The rooms are located downstairs with a private entrance

One room also features a CD player and private terrace. The private garden terrace allows you to have your breakfast sitting in the sun or the option of getting a tan in the afternoon after exploring the city.

The Area:

B&B Downstairs is situated in an area of Amsterdam called "de Pijp". It's only a 15 minutes walk to the heart of the city center. This is what the TimeOut Guide to Amsterdam has to say about our neighbourhood:

"The colourful area of the Pijp (pipe) is the best known of the working class quarters built in the late nineteenth century, when a population boom burst the city's seams.

To make the most of the highly priced land, every square metre was utilised, resulting in standard long, narrow streets. Thus the official name of 'Area YY' was soon dropped in favour of a nickname, 'De Pijp'. Because rents were still too high for many tenants, they were forced to let rooms to students and it was they who gave the area its bohemian character, together with the numerous Dutch writers who lived here, such as Heijermans, De Haan and Bordewijk. Many painters (including Mondriaan) had studios here too, and the area was swarming with brothels and pubs.

At the turn of the century, the Pijp was a radical socialist area. Although the area has lost much of its radicalism since then, the students remain; families with children have all fled to suburbia. The number of cheap one or two bedroom apartments, combined with the almost central location, make the area very attractive to students, young single people and couples. The area also has the densest gay population in Amsterdam.

Over the last 35 years many immigrants have also found their way into the area and set up shop. The Pijp now house a mixture of nationalities, providing locals with plenty of Islamic butchers, Surinamese, Spanish, Indian and Turkish delicatessens and grocery stores selling exotic food. Restaurants offer authentic Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese, Pakistani, Chinese and Indian cuisine."
