“Just wander”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This area is full of small shop, fashion, art and small eateries and bars. Just wander from place to place, stopping occasionally to to drop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, drinks or dinner. You are spoiled for choice in this area and most are good value and quality.

“Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The Jordaan is the most picturesque neighbourhood in Amsterdam that I have seen. It has super cute small cafes and bars along the canal. The best way to explore the Jordaan is by cycle. Makes you want to live there.

“Carming, charming, charming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We rented an apartment in The Jordaan for a week and enjoyed every bit of it! It is such a lively place and can be explored endlessly. We bough breakfast for a baker across the street and it was such a simple pleasure! I remember walking into an old-fashioned corner candy store and was taken back to my childhood! Young school kids were flocking into it and choosing from jars and jars of different candy stacked high to the ceiling! The whole area is charming and full of surprises like this.

“Exemplary Look of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 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.
