“Take a Break from the Crowds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Jordaan is a real neighbourhood, not touristy and a nice break from the crowds as you wander the picturesque small streets and small side canals.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Superb neighborhood, although the roads that make Amsterdam are a maze, they all looks like one each other.
However, it was nice to walk through The Jordaan, beautiful homes, very clean and well cared area.

“Nice part of Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

My hotel was in this district, so I had an opportunity to stroll there - very nice district with different shops, restaurants and so on that You can find in other districts, but the special thing here - number of quiet places where You can walk or rest!

“Great location for your stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

By far the best value for staying any length of time in Amsterdam is to rent an apartment. Onte of the best locations is Jordaan. Close to Central Station and the 9 Streets (shopping girls!) with a Saturday market. Jordaan has some of the best restaurants in the city. Very trendy!

“Interesting but not inspiring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

There are many shops and boutiques that are interesting, but nothing that cannot be seen in other countries with similar boutique districts.
Definitely worth a visit on the way to or coming from other sites.
