Neighbourhood
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.

Relaxed, small no nonsense hotel for a good price in the centre of Amsterdam. Close to a lot of highlights. And ideal for people that love music. Nice people and cool interior. Going to Melkweg or Paradiso or such, than stay here.

In some ways this hotel is typical of the area - small rooms (including basement rooms), exceptionally steep staircases, and no air conditioning. The Backstage differs in having somewhat quirky - rock band related - decor (e.g. band posters, ceiling lights made from snare drums...More
