“Leafy Neighbourhood :) :) Great pubs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Well worth taking the time out from the coffeeshops and red light to rub shoulders with the locals and sip dutch beer on the side of the canals. If the weather is good its perfect to stroll around for an afternoon.

“Peaceful neighbourhood”

Wecycled all over th city and somehow this is the most peaceful site in Amsterdam ever. Very near to the canal snd people there were very welcoming. Slightly different than the rest of of thr city. Love it!

“Cool neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Great walkable neighborhood; very picturesque with lots of restaurants. Novice bike riders would do better here than in the central district.

“Wonderful area to visit or stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We stayed at a house in The Jordaan while in Amsterdam for a week. It was quiet and so picturesque. The canals were gorgeous, the steep stairs in the house made it unique to us, the feeling of being in Amsterdam was reminded to us every time we stepped outside! While Amsterdam is a really busy city, staying in The Jordaan allowed us to step away from the hustle around Amsterdam Centraal, the red light district etc. Highly recommend this neighborhood for a stay, and if not, at least for a visit!

“Amsterdam's SOHO.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

If you love the charming quirky side of a sophisticated city then Jordaan is for you. Pub after pub,craft shops, less expensive light lunches, great places for predinner tapas and a neighbourhood to let your hair down - visit this jeans and sneaker district, This is our second favourite neighbourhood in Amsterdam.
