“It was our favorite part of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We stayed near the Jordan at Le Quartier Sonang and walked there several times during our one week stay. I couldn't get enough of the wonderful little shops and local cafes surrounding the canals. From the Jordan, the next section is filled with little shops, heading back into the central Dam part of town. Just walk it, enjoy it, and if you get tired, take a water taxi or tram back. You can't get lost in Amsterdam.

“Jordaan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Still a charming, diverse area [30 years since my last visit] and one of the few areas that has kept its character. A delight to walk around and explore.
