'Up and coming' said the guidebooks- not sure if we went to the wrong area but it was lacking in people and looked much the same as other parts of Amsterdam. It was pretty enough with its old canalside houses but nothing special!

This was the best Amsterdam neighbor I've visited. Quiet, at least compared to the touristy RD and really beautiful streets & canals.

This is a wonderful neighborhood, so pretty and unique. Flowers on stoops, canals, farmers' market: a combination and feel unlike any other I've ever seen. Amsterdam is very cool, and The Jordaan district seems to be the coolest of the cool.

The Jordaan is a great neigbourhood, famous for its local singers. When you are walking around in these streets you get the perfect amsterdam experience. The local bars are very special and all food options available.

Lovely traditional Area - very close to Anne Frank House, beautiful unusual boutique shops. Take a few hours to wonder around the back streets.

It was very nice walking around the area, sitting in little cafes, enjoying the beautiful canals, and seeing all the people. Much mellower than other parts of the city and well worth a visit.

Quiet but interesting, a lovely vibe - very chic - real Amsterdam, not the touristy invention around the flower market - if you are looking for a real experience - stay here...

Enjoy an authentic AMS experience by combining Jenever (the local gin-like drink chased with a draft beer), Andre Hazes (folk singer), and conversation with the colorful locals (soccer is a great opening topic!) and you're in for a Brown Cafe night to remember!!! Cheers!!!
