“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

The atmosphere of this area is hard to describe. Cosy bars, fantastic quaint shops, delicious restaraunts. Narrow streets meandering to craftsman/women's studios. Unbelievable place to stay....

“Stroll, stop, eat, sleep and enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

The hustle and bustle of this place is amazing!
Take in an early weekend morning and enjoy the waking of a city and tapping of market stalls.
Come here for the Royal celebrations (Kings Day now) at the end of April and you’ll see an ocean of orange with live bands, music and dancing.

Boutique cafes, bars, restaurants and shops the whole year round this really is the place to visit in Amsterdam.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Take a stroll around the Jordaan area just simply to get a feel for the friendly, local atmosphere, and the beautiful houses, gardens and surroundings. Great little local cafes on practically each corner add to this area's charm. I'd live here if I could!

Rick Steves has a free android app with a walking tour of this neighborhood. Use this app to get there and learn some facts then just walk around the canals and enjoy

“Beautiful Neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a beautiful neighborhood in Amsterdam, full of lovely cafes, restaurants and restaurants. It feels very far away from the craziness of Central Station and Dam Square. We loved walking all around Jordaan, day and night.
