My lovely apartment is located in the North of the Jordaan district. This part is more residential than the central area of the Jordaan. However within a couple of minutes of walking you'll see the beautiful canals of Amsterdam and the finest restaurants & bars in the neighborhood. This area is ideal for hipsters or just normal people who prefer to try out the newest trends in fashion, food and bicycling. I highly recommend to rent a 'bakfiets' a special bicycle with box up front for moving.
