Amsterdam, North Holland Province
Located in a quiet, residential street in the very heart of the Jordaan, DB's is a Home Away from Home: not far from Central Station, close to bars, restaurants, the Monday textile and Saturday food/farmers markets and many tourist attractions. The Jordaan is the oldest area of Amsterdam, full of history, interesting architecture, and a great variety of shops.

The Jordaan is well known for its special atmosphere, local cafes/bars and many styles of restaurants. The best Dutch apple cake is just around the corner. Enjoy the local scenery and return to your Home Away from Home.

DB's is actually a spacious and cosy one-bedroom apartment. The bedroom comprises a twin/double bed, TV/DvD, and adjoining luxury bathroom. A top mattress creates a very comfortable double bed and the bed can be separated to form a twin. There are two comf...

The flat is located in a nice area of Amsterdam in the Jordaan. We communicated with the owner - Dianne by email a number of times prior to our arrival with questions that were answered promptly. Dianne welcomed us when we arrived on our first day and gave us tips and other info relating to the apartment, the neighborhood and...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind comments. Our location is so close to everything and yet very quiet at night. It is often hard to explain that the staircase is actually Amsterdam-friendly, wide and not steep. I just don't now where the smell of smoke comes as guests who do smoke do so outside, especially since the weather has improved. We...

What a wonderful find for our stay in Amsterdam! Great location, bright and cozy yet with plenty of space for 2, comfortable beds, a large bathtub, and even a lovely little deck out back. Add to this Dianne, our thoughtful and charming host...she was friendly and helpful, flexible when our flight was delayed, and even stocked the refrigerator with breakfast...

LOCATION: Ever wondered what it would be like to stay in one of those adorable narrow Dutch houses, and at an affordable price? Here’s your chance! On a quiet street in the lovely, happening Jordaan neighborhood, this location for an apartment rental is a fine choice. Owner Dianne lives on the ground floor of this house from the 1800’s, and...

Management response:

Thank you for your detailed and helpful, and appreciative review. Some of the points will be acted upon immediately. I did stress that you could ask me if you required anything and that includes a double comforter/duvet. I would have supplied this with pleasure. The oven is very complicated, so a small electric oven is available in the apartment. As...

About the neighborhood
The Jordaan area of Amsterdam offers a real flavour of the city. It is a residential area with points of local history, and a choice of shops (super)markets, restaurants and cafés. See the different styles of architecture and visit the Hofjes, hidden behind the streets. Enjoy a reasonably priced meal at one of the café restaurants, or take out an excellent Indonesian meal, or book at table at one of the many restaurants, all within a short walk. The "Nine Streets" district is a short walk where you can visit a great variety of shops featuring local designs.
