“Picturesque, the Amsterdam you came to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The Jordaan is the best part of Central Amsterdam. While most visitors spent there time in and around Dam Square, Red Light District, etc I felt as if I had this place between myself and the locals. You do not need a map, just wonder the streets, visit the small cafes and eat in the local restaurants. The architecture is what you would expect but with the never ending canals, bridges and small, quaint side streets it is a wonderful area.

“A village within the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

A great area - like a village within the city. Close to everything but quiet. Part of the old area of Amsterdam and very picturesque

“Great neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Great neighborhood to walk. Safe with great views. Would have loved to spend more time here. Will definitely go back and enjoy when the weather is more warmer.
