My husband, son and I stayed at the Amphora for 4 nights in July. We had a really lovely time and the b & b was all we had hoped for. The Jordaan is by far the best neighbourhood in Amsterdam and we were very close to all that we wanted. Highly recommend the Amphora and Amsterdam!

Big and comfortable with amenities like a full working kitchen, located in probably the most interesting part of Amsterdam. The Anne Frank house was a short walk away in one direction, and we found some very enjoyable restaurants a short walk away in the other direction. But especially important was the wonderful help we got from Greet, one of the... More

A place for a great trip to Amsterdam. We have stayed at Amphora before and this time was just as good. A real home from home. Greet and Niels so welcoming, and its a perfect canalside setting for a great Amsterdam experience.

Brexit was the big shock when we arrived in Amsterdam. But our host was welcoming and friendly and went out of her way to make our visit enjoyable, even booking my birthday dinner! (Her birthday was the following day so it was fun). The best feature of the apartment is the bench outside to sit and observe the canal with... More

Wonderful place to rent in Amsterdam in a great and convenient location within walking or tram of the entire city. Greet is a wonderful host, and provides all the little things that make the unit feel like home (some great snacks). There is a supermarket nearby in the Jordaan to pick up refills after you use what has been provided,... More

This is a lovely little studio apartment on the ground floor (which means you don't have to climb the steep, narrow stairs found all over Amsterdam) in an old canal house in a residential area of the city. It looks just like the pictures. It is very quiet since there is a double set of doors and windows. Even though... More

We loved Amphora B&B. It well deserves its high ratings on Trip Advisor. It is really an apartment on the ground floor of a canal house in Amsterdam's Jordaans neighborhood. Quiet and tranquil location in a great residential neighborhood that has been gentrified in the past 20 years and has good restaurant, shopping, etc. The apartment is spotlessly clean and... More

Location is great, quiet, by a canal and close to tram lines. Niels and Greet are just great! Our kid loved the Lego box. We felt like home away from home. We hope to come back one day. Thank you so much for your hospitality, Greet and Niels <3

Thought it was abit of way out and away from the honey spots but in the end that is very welcome. Its on a quite canal spur but with easy walk to Jordaan or over the main bit. Some good eating places nearby and the tram from the station is a few mins walk only. There is pretty much everything... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
