We offer comfortable rooms in a traditional split-level building INSIDE the historical Jordaan area, downtown Amsterdam. All rooms are recently redecorated and each has a private, en-suite bathroom, a dinig table, private coffee/tea facilities and FREE access to our WiFi-Network. We're proud to tell that we received 5 awards in the last 5 years. All are based on genuine guest reviews. It is nice to know that in the opinion of our guests: We're amongst the best in Europe :). Our neighbourhood: 'The Jordaan-area' is a dense patch of small-scale streets and canals peppered with interesting shops, galleries, charming 'hofjes' and inviting brown cafes. Quirky and characterful, with an intimate, easy-going atmosphere of it's own. Ou house was originally built by a master carpenter and his family and later rebuilt by a printersfamily. The story is told by the old, picturesque craftsmanship tile in our gable. It is a historic part of the Jordaan since 1661. When we opened our doors in 2001 it was skilfully renovated with help of the Amsterdam Gable-sign Fund.

My boyfriend and I took a couple's trip to Amsterdam and were absolutely thrilled with our stay at B&B Jordaan. Quiet, family neighborhood with easy access to the busier parts of Amsterdam, B&B Jordaan is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a place that makes you feel like you're at home. Charlotte could not have been more helpful. We had the briefest problem with the internet, and she helped us and fixed it right away. We told her we liked to eat, and she gave us a rundown of all the best local places, pointing out their locations on a map. Each morning she brought us the most lovely Dutch breakfast; breads, meats, cheeses, yogurt, hardboiled eggs, and fresh squeezed OJ. So good, we never had breakfast anywhere else. Because we stayed a week, she put us in the ground floor garden room, which was a delight. So much beautiful light all day long, and sitting in the garden for breakfast or afternoon tea was fabulous. A neighborhood cat passed through the garden almost every day, and you could hear the birds and distant sounds of children playing. It truly felt like home; we were sad to leave, and can't wait to go back—we've already told Charlotte to expect to see us next year! The most crucial thing that happened to solidify the quality of this B&B was when I threw my hip out. Rather than having to sit in a Dutch emergency room, Charlotte called her personal doctor, who was unfortunately out of town. She told her office she needed the next best thing, and then she actually made an appointment for me with the woman who adjusts the Dutch National Ballet Company! I was reset within a day, and my vacation was salvaged. Without Charlotte, my entire trip would have been ruined. Do yourself a favor, and stay in this most comfortable, lovely, affordable establishment. You can come and go as you please, any problems you may have are addressed immediately, and your experience will be incredibly authentic. Thank you so much Charlotte!!

I found this place at short notice, good, quick response from the owner, the B&B is in the right part of the city, the room was clean and reasonably comfortable if somewhat basic in its facilities. It is very expensive for what you get; I have paid less for two people last year in the same part of the city in a more comfortable place with better facilities and friendlier service. Breakfasts are given to you on a tray at a time chosen by the owner (you have a choice of two times). The menu is what the owner thinks you want; one day I had butter, the next day cream cheese. I prefer butter, but wasn't asked for my choice about that or anything else. The whole experience was adequate but very impersonal. The 'dining score' above is meaningless, since I didn't dine there.
I am very, very sorry that the butter was missing on one morning…. I did not think that it was not necessary, I only forgot and the cream-cheese was just something extra in addition to the day before. I do ask every morning each of our guests if there is anything else that I can do and I explain all our guests, upon arrival, that they can reach us all day by knocking on our door (in this case just outside his room-door). This way we answer many questions of our guests but one can ofcourse also report a missing thing like butter and it is quite unusual to receive such news through a review. But I am sorry to see that it resulted in such inconvenience. According to our prices: This guest booked a double room for himself and therefore paid 50% more than usual. Our breakfast contains orange juice, bread, different kinds of rolls, sweet-cake, several kinds of cheeses, meats, jams, butter and also eggs or yogurt or soft-/goatcheese depending on what is available that morning. This complete breakfast is brought to your room each morning where you have a private breakfast table including coffee/tea facilities and because I ask everyone if there is anything else, this moment is often used by our guests to ask all kinds of questions and usually we have nice conversations. Kind regards, Charlotte, host and owner of B&B Jordaan

Our family stayed at B&B Jordaan 2-nights back in May of 2011 and loved it. The hosts, rooms, food, and neighborhood are all ideal - minus the overnight tolling of the Westerkerk bells, but still worth it and we'd do it again in a minute. We will definitely return to Jordaan and the B&B Jordaan the next time we visit Amsterdam.
What a nice surprise to receive such a nice review 2 years after you styed with us. Thank you!. Good to see that you still have such fond memories. The nice thing is that I do remember you staying with us because you did mention the church bells and not many (as in appr 2 per year) of our guests do. It was a good thing you only heard them the first night. Through time I’ve learned that our guest usually sleep the lightest on their first night. I guess it might be the newness of the room, the experiences of travelling all day or, as was here the case, the fact that one sleeps in a room with others whom are usually (at home) not there. And yes when you are awak you will here churchbells during the night all over Amsterdam. Because the Westerchurch is just one of the, over a dozen, churches in the old center which actively ring their bells. But no worries in our B&B you can only hear them when you are awake already, they won’t wake you ¿. Looking forward to welcome you in our home! Charlotte (host and owner of B&B Jordaan)

B&B Jordaan was perfect for our week long stay in Amsterdam. Room is very peaceful, breakfasts are generous, and staff is so pleasant and helpful. Easy access to all of Amsterdam from this location.

Staying here is an absolute must if visiting Amsterdam. The B&B is spotless and extremely comfortable. Charlotte is an amazing source of knowledge for things to do and places to see. Every morning she brings breakfast to your room and you have the opportunity to ask any questions. Another fantastic thing is that Charlotte just leaves you to your own devices but, as she lives on the premises, you know you can contact her at any time and she is always available and happy to help - nothing is too much trouble. The B&B is within walking distance for many attractions but also for hop on hop of canal boats.

This B&B is situated on a quiet street in the Jordaan area, a wonderful village type atmosphere filled with fabulous restaurants, galleries, boutiques etc. Our main floor bedroom/bathroom included access to a private, romantic garden area. This is a rare treat in a city so crowded and a wonderful respite at the end of the day. On top of this, the bed was incredible...better than we have at home! We often didn't want to get out of it in the morning and had breakfast in bed overlooking the sun-filled garden. Our host was just amazing. Each morning we were greeted with a huge smile and a breakfast to match. We often made sandwiches there was so much food. When I mentioned something I liked it was on the tray the following day. Not only was she friendly but she was very enthusiastic with helping us in any way. Once you mentioned your interests she was full of ideas, books, maps to enrich our adventures....she is a wealth of knowledge; from the history of her city to great tips on how to save money on transportation/museums. You could not ask for more. She kindly photocopied some road maps of France for the next leg of our journey which saved us time and money from tolls. As well, it was far more scenic. She is a gem and you feel as if you are staying with friends...she shares her home so beautifully.

My wife and I stayed at this B&B for 4 days together with our 12 year old granddaughter. It was ideally placed and very comfortable. Charlotte was a great source of information and made us very welcome. The breakfasts were varied and excellent.
