About the neighborhood
The Brouwersgracht has been chosen more then once to be the most beautiful canal in Amsterdam. 2 minutes away you will find: the Haarlemmerstraat – and its extension, the Haarlemmerdijk - is a gem! Offering independent boutiques and speciality stores, little salons, trendy but affordable restaurants and bars and the oldest cinema in Amsterdam, this area will certainly appeal to the most jaded of world-travellers. Our houseboat Love and is located in the very heart of the historical 'Jordaan'. Originally a working-class neighbourhood, the Jordaan has become one of the most upscale locations in the Netherlands.
