The 3 Best hotels in De Pijp
Colourful, multi-ethnic De Pijp provides a lively contrast with the tourist-dominated city centre, from which it is separated by Singelgracht, and the River Amstel is its eastern boundary. Stay in one of the best hotels in De Pijp to discover an amazing array of street food from all over the world along Albert Cuypstraat. Busiest on Saturdays – when it attracts up to 40,000 shoppers – this is De Pijp's main thoroughfare, and it's foodie heaven. It's lined with dozens of restaurants and stalls, and nearby Sarphatipark, the neighbourhood's central green space, is the perfect place for a summer picnic.
And if you thought Amsterdam's heritage was all about postcard-pretty, centuries-old canalside houses, De Pijp's 1920s modernist architecture, the work of the innovative Amsterdam School, will make you think again. Lager lovers shouldn't miss the Heineken Experience on Stadhouderskade, where you can also board a hop-on hop-off canal boat to explore the sights around the Canal Belt.
Visitors who opt for a stay at one of the best hotels in De Pijp are also handily close to the world-class art collections of the Museumkwartier, including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, and the neighbourhood is just two Metro stops from the city centre and three from Centraal Station.
