Stayed here on our Christmas holiday next to one of the canals. Safe and quiet at night and 5 min away from all shopping and sights . Every step is like being in a postcard. Loved it

This area was recommended by a friend who lives in Amsterdam and he was right - it's a pretty place right in the heart of everything and easy to access most places by foot. Great atmosphere, beautiful views.

Not sure why this is number 4 on list of things to do, this is a neighbourhood like many in the area with no attractions just peoples houses. Don’t get me wrong it’s great to see the houses so close together and they are beautiful,...More

You must visit the Jordaan area of Amsterdam if only just to walk and take in the lovely canal side homes and architecture. Even on a dull, cold and wet January day there is a lovely ambience with many quaint shops and side streets to...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yes this section of the city is more quiet. It is close to several attractions. But you can also catch the tram which can take you to many parts of the city. Also close enough to Centraal Station where you can catch train to... More
