“Very simply- The place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This area just oozes charm character and is full of locals enjoying life in this great suburb. Quiet streets with more charming canals and a fantastic selection of bars, restaurants & shops.

And only a 10 min walk to the more central attractions ( Anne Franks Hse, 9 Street, Red light district, lots of museums). So close enough so that you can spend all day in town, pop 'home' relax change and pop back into town for a meal, although you can find pretty much any kind of restaurant locally from posh places booked for months, to informal places

A bunch of recommendations to eat:
Donna Sofia on Anjeliersstraat (a Little Italy)- local pasta/ pizza excellent lunch there and always packed walking past at night

Hostaria- another Italian almost opposite Donna S- had supper there and ut was good food at a good price with charming lady owner been there for 20 yrs.

Daalder- on Lindengracht- could get in tried twice need to book well in advance for wkends but looks fab

Brasserie Vlaming in Princengracht- excellent, fab night defn worth the 10 min walk from Jordaan

L'Invite- on Bloemgracht- couldnt get in tried hard but will visit another time

Restorante Pepe- on Westerstraat- looks average to be fair but fantastic pizza and a cheap meal

And to work off that food, hire bikes from Bike City in Bloemgracht- dutch cyclist are nutters but is good fun and a great way to get about

Final tip...use AirBnB.com to book accom !

“Nice place for a walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Beautiful and quintessentially Amsterdam. It is one of the oldest quarter's of the city and is definitely worth a quick walk or bike ride.

“Stroll, stop, eat, sleep and enjoy”
5 of 5 stars 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.
