“Great shopping”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Away from the run of the mill boutiques which provided a realistic view of Amsterdam. It was lovely to get away from all the brands that you see elsewhere. The area had character.

“Didn't blow me away”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Pretty much everyone I talked to and every guide book I read raved about the Jordaan, so naturally I had to visited.

Sure, it's a nice area with some quirky shops and good cafes/restaurants, but I didn't think it was amazing.

Perhaps it's worth a look if you're in no rush, but i didn't think there was anything particularly noteworthy or memorable to see.

“Great for a stroll.”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

First, nearly all the upper portion of Amsterdam is touristy. However, there are spots that are less so and this can be one. It is a great area to find small shops and cafes and see great views along the canals. The architecture is excellent in this area as well. Take your time and I think you will find many somewhat hidden treasures.

“Lovely neighborhood”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Beautiful residential area with hidden treasures if you are willing to explore beyond the usual touristic area. Found a lovely antique shop and local eateries that were well worth the experience!
