“Nice place for a walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Beautiful and quintessentially Amsterdam. It is one of the oldest quarter's of the city and is definitely worth a quick walk or bike ride.

“Stroll, stop, eat, sleep and enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

The hustle and bustle of this place is amazing!
Take in an early weekend morning and enjoy the waking of a city and tapping of market stalls.
Come here for the Royal celebrations (Kings Day now) at the end of April and you’ll see an ocean of orange with live bands, music and dancing.

Boutique cafes, bars, restaurants and shops the whole year round this really is the place to visit in Amsterdam.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Take a stroll around the Jordaan area just simply to get a feel for the friendly, local atmosphere, and the beautiful houses, gardens and surroundings. Great little local cafes on practically each corner add to this area's charm. I'd live here if I could!
