We spend our summer holidays in this cosy location in Amsterdam. We means a family of 4. The Jordaan area is a great place to stay – its in the middle of the city and nevertheless a very relaxed and quiet area. If you decide not to walk to the several tourist attractions, you do reach 3 tram/bus stations within... More

We spent 3 nights in this very nice apartment in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam. (The owners live above) We walked the entire city, no problem from this location. The apartment is quite spacious, very nice bed and quiet in the evening (sleeping). There is a fine kitchen area and the coffee and tea selections were great! For breakfast Greet... More

This is our 3rd visit in a year and it feels like home from home. The convienience of being so close to gorgeous little cafes and shops and walking distance from all the main tourist spots. We had one stormy day and being able to have the facilities of an apartment instead of a hotel room was great. It's also... More

We stayed at Amphora for 3 nights late June 2015. Niels and Greet provided us with directions and it was an easy to locate via bus from airport and a 10 minute walk. The apartment itself is really good, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. They provided us with a breakfast pack for 2 days, wine and biscuits... More

Hi! I am sorry you felt akward about the workers (2) in front of the house, but I am glad you did notice they were friendly. We couldn't help this renovation.

Greet and Niels were very kind and helped us a lot. The room is beautiful. The location is great and is near the tram stop. There are also good restaurants near by. There are many toys for our children. 很棒的地方。

I truly loved staying at the Amphora Bed and Breakfast! It was just around the corner from my friends' house in the Jordan in a quiet part of town.

We had stormy weather in Amsterdam and it was always a pleasure to come back to this cosy place. It is an appartment with everything that you need. Grete is a very host that thinks about all the little things that make you feel home. Centrally located in Jordaan with many good restaurants nearby.

Prior to our stay we had communicated with Greet and Niels and had already received helpful suggestions about our visit to Amsterdam. This helpful information continued during our stay. The apartment is spotless and quiet and equipped so many thoughtful "extras". They have excellent bikes to rent but the apartment is an easy walk to restaurants, tourist areas or buses.... More

I have reviewed Amphora previously and endorse all the comments but must just add something else.

We enjoy staying in B&Bs when we travel and this was a great one. It is a very comfortable studio on the ground floor so no problem with those charming Amsterdam stairs. The location is ideal. It is walking distance to every thing you'll want to see but in a quiet beautiful residential neighborhood away from the busy tourist areas.... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
