“quirky characterful house in great location”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This house is full of history and character and, whilst not luxurious, it has everything you need for a short break. The location is wonderful, just metres from the Herengracht canal. We hired bikes for the day from the bike hire place next door - very good value and it was great fun, if a little scary! cycling along the canal banks.
The host is great and worked our check-in and departure times with our flights as well as he could. He also gave us a very informative welcome.
The only downside for us is the one bathroom.toilet but I think that is usual for this kind of property - the steep stairs/ladder would not suit everyone.

“Beautiful, great location, excellent customer service”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We are a family of 6 (2 parents with 4 kids ages 14, 12, 10 and 7). I had a hard time finding a reasonable place to stay in Amsterdam. I was hesitant to book 2 hotel rooms that might be separated from each other and might also require the kids to leave the room to use a common bath. This apartment was a lovely option. So glad we splurged, although Amsterdam is an expensive city so we really were just paying the market rate. Great WiFi and TV for UEFA 2016 viewing. We arrived late in the evening and I was glad the apartment was such an easy walk from the central station. Easy check in and check out. Glad to have a kitchen and a way to wash and dry clothes. The younger girls loved the attic! Stairs are not for the elderly, very young, or unsteady. There is a nice playground about 1 block away and lots of eating option right there on the main road. We walked to the Anne Frank House and then to the Van Gogh museum. The kids did get quite tired, but walking is a good option.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This place was really, really nice, I saw the pictures first, but when we arrived, we were overwhelmed with how this house was spaceful, beautiful, and really typical. By far one of the best places I stayed in.
We stayed for about a week, the location was really one of the best possible, close to everything, the neighborhood is nice, the commodities also.
Highly recommanding the Authentic Jordaan :)

“We'd love to come back”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The apartment was well suited for our family. It was an authentic dutch house complete with the stair-step style facade dating from the 17th c.
It was close to everything and within walking distance from Central Station. That was a real plus. It was a bit difficult with 8 people (6 adults and two children) and only one bathroom, but for the weekend we managed. The only downside is that the apartment is advertised at 197 per night and we were charged more than triple that for each night. It's advertised that the price may increase 30% to 40%, but that was not our case.

Hi Samantha, Im surprised to only hear about the rate confusion now. the price you quote/found is the nightly tariff in low season, and advertised as a starting rate, it also doesn't include the base rate that applies to each booking. I hope that clarifies the issue for you.

“Beautiful, well furnished apartment in a perfect location”
Reviewed 13 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at the "Authentic Jordaan" with a group of 6 for my birthday from the 6th-8th January. The apartment was more than adequate for our stay and we can see ourselves re-booking in the future.

The owner Wytse had great communication and was very helpful. He was there on arrival to do the handover and provide us with tons of useful information about the surrounding area.

There was a slight issue in that the sofa bed was broke by the previous occupants however Wytse was very quick to sort out a new one the same day.

As mentioned before there is a loud tap but that's really nit-picking considering the authenticity of the apartment. You will not be disappointed with this booking.

“Excellent New Year 2015 at the Authentic Jordaan”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had an excellent time renting the Authentic Jordaan for 30.12.2015 - 03.01.2016. The owner was very helpful with everything we needed, we got instructions on the house and surroundings and the house itself was very beautiful.

The location of the Authentic Jordaan is especially good. Everything in Amsterdam is within walking distance. This, coupled with a beautiful 400-year old house resulted in one of the most memorable new years of my life.

Would rent again and most likely will!

“New Years at the Authentic Jordaan with 8 people”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We spent the 2015 New Year (30.12.2015 - 03.01.2016) at the Authentic Jordaan with 8 people and loved every second of it!

Pros:
- Location: Definitely the best thing about the house. It is the middle of Amsterdam with everything in walking distance. Couldn't have hoped for better

- The owners: Good people, who were very helpful and reasonable

- The owners cat: because a cat.

- The house itself: A very beautiful old house. Even though some may not like this, for us it was a major plus to live in such a piece of history.

Cons:

- Only one toilet: This is the only problem we really had with the house. 8 people and one toilet was a little hard, but with a good group it's not a problem.

Would recommend this to everyone. It is well worth the price.
