My apartment is situated in a quiet street with all the fun at only a few minutes walking distance. The big museums are a 10/15-minute walk, as is Congress Centre RAI. The famous Albert Cuyp street market is a 5-minute walk. Next door is cafe Lokaal De Pijp, with all kinds of local brewed beer. There's a big supermarket at 3-minute walk, as is the Le Pain Quotidien bakery. A laundry service is just across the street. If you don't like walking: public transport is available just around the corner and will bring you all over town.
