“Exemplary Look of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

This area is exemplary look of Amsterdam. Trees lining along the canal and Dutch-style houses, cobbled streets crisscrossing narrow alleys, and a lot of design boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Quiet yet lively and fun in its own way.

“Great for wandering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Fantastic district of Amsterdam if you're there to soak up the architecture and atmosphere. Lovely old houses, beautiful canals and lots of interesting places to dip in and out of.

“The best experience in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Walking through this neighborhood is an endless pleasure ... a huge variety of amazing houses , art galleries, small 'brown' bars and, last but not least, ....... a sweet honey stroopwafel at a bakery facing a canal.
Don’t miss a walk in the “nine streets” district, one of the city’s most picturesque shopping areas!

“Lovely Neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Lovely neighborhood to stroll though and find a cafe to enjoy a meal. Within a short walk from the Anne Frank House. We found a grocery store here - Jumbo. A great grocery store if you are looking for snacks or food cheaper than what you can find in convenience stores. Also a nice selection of Danish snacks to take home for gifts. Great pricing on Stroopwaffles (8 individually wrapped for Euro 1.75).

“We lived here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I like everything about the district. Both very quiet and comfortable and practically in the center of the city. Close to all major attractions and at the same time full of authentic Amsterdam chic.
