“Genuine Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This area is very old Amsterdam in my opinion, nice area that isn't ruined with modern design. I think it's a wonderful area to visit. Lots of places to eat and chill out while people watching.

This is a lovely area which is well worth exploring. As well as being a residential area there are plenty of shops and cafes.

“Photo on every corner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

That typical Amsterdam view of a long canal with a bridge in the distance covered in bikes and flowers? Well the Jordaan is that image on every corner. Cafes, bars and restaurants everywhere!

“Beautiful area!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The Jordaan is what one imagines a trip to Amsterdam to be. We booked an apt. right in the heart of the Jordaan and loved it! Great atmosphere, fantastic restaurants & shops and still convenient to Centraal Station, public transportation and all the sights.

“A pleasant area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We went for a walk around the Jordaan district on a Monday morning, a very quiet time. Many of the streets are residential and also not accessible to motor vehicles, they have lots of plants in tubs and boxes and it is altogether a very pleasant area away from the main stream area of the city. There are pleasant areas of canal and it is less than ten minutes from the Central Station.

It helped us to re-charge after being with so many people for several days. We found one or two cafes on the edge of the area to get a coffee and snack.
