My husband and I stayed at the Amsterdam Jewel - in the Amber Apartment - for three days/nights over Thanksgiving weekend in November 2009. It is perfectly situated: located near Dam Square heading toward the Jordaan, right across the Nine Little Streets; about a 10 minute walk from the train station, 15 min walk from the Red Light District, and 15 mins from the museum area. While the apartment is situated in an old canal house (and up several, winding sets of steep stairs!), it is modern, very clean, recently renovated, and has a great setup. We enjoyed the great view from the apartment, which looked out onto the canal and the bridge below, across from other canal apartments, and out toward the Westerkerk Church tower. Jojo, one of the owners, was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions.
Although our stay was short, we loved the city of Amsterdam and highly recommend the Amsterdam Jewel!
