About Jolanda

We are a family of 4 and we live for more than 17 years in this great house in the middle of the old centre in Amsterdam. My 3 children love this place and so do I. This area 'Jordaan' is like a small old village in the centre of Amsterdam. Everything is in walking distance.

Jolanda purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Jolanda chose Jordaan

This is our own house where we live for more than 17 years. The ground floor apartment used to be a shop for more than 100 years but is been renovated into an apartment. This is the best location in town because it's in the middle of everything and still very peaceful and children are playing on the street.

What makes this apartment unique

We love to go to the biological markets in the weekends to do our groceries and to walk or take the bike. When you step out the apartment you see the Westertoren and it's always very beautiful to see the canals. Everything is in walking distance.

Perfect Place for Amsterdam Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Yolanda was the perfect host and her Jordan apartment for any couple (or two) or small family in Amsterdam. The location was very continent walking distance to a tram and a couple blocks away from the Anne Frank Museum where you can hop aboard a sightseeing cruise. The Tulip and Cheese museums are also just down the street along with a few local pups, restaurants and places to have a drink along the canal. It’s a very quiet street and residential neighborhood which makes for a pleasant stay while still being in the city and close to all the amenities and attractions. Jolanda was extremely flexible with our payment and check in/out times and was more than available to assist with any special requests in a moment’s notice. She offered up many suggestions and was there for us to provide solutions for my parents and I who stayed there for a week. It’s a ground level unit so no need to carry your bags up the narrow staircases when you arrive/depart. Toiletries, a hair dryer and coffee were provided, along with a fully stocked kitchen, living room and dining area and a cute patio to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine!

In response to some of the negative reviews: The wireless was a pretty bad connection, however, wifi in general it is spotty at best and very unreliable throughout Amsterdam. Jolanda mentioned an engineer that she had already scheduled to come the next day to remedy the problem. She also noted that it’s a busy area (a student hostel next door) so a lot of competition for a signal. Plus we had multiple (up to 5) devices on it at any given time which can use up all the bandwidth. There was no musty smell or bugs, but the beds are a bit awkward, nothing that would hinder our experience. The shower was a small door that did splash a little but nothing you wouldn’t come to expect from a flat in the city, just don’t angle the shower head toward the opening.

Other than that, Jordan Apartment was beyond expectations and the perfect place to call home and get the true Amsterdam-experience for a reasonable rate! Thanks for a welcoming and enjoyable stay! We highly recommend it!

Could be better

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful location, great local restaurant "de Reiger" a short stroll down Neue Leliestraat, this apartment has the potential to be better than it is. The downstairs box bed is reasonably comfortable, but the basement level is humid and smells of damp. Previous guests had recommended a dehumidifier and we agree that this would help a lot. The ground floor bedroom is tiny, as is the bathroom. I wanted to rate this place higher.

Great Location for first time trip to Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here in January for 5 nights and were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to reach by tram from Centraal station. Having never been to Amsterdam before, it was an intimidating experience but with the apartment located so centrally and close to sights (such as the Anne Frank House) it was easy to get to and from. Everything is within walking distance, including places to eat (and supermarkets), shopping districts and historical sights. The apartment is nicely decorated and spacious and had television channels in English which was nice to come home to at the end of a busy day. The bedrooms are quite small and cosy but was perfect for the two of us and gave us our own space. The kitchen is well equipped and the laundry was useful too. All in all, great apartment that comes highly recommended.

cozy apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay here. The location alone would make this an excellent find...close to many sites and near some really good restaurants, in a wonderful neighborhood just a bit removed from the crowds found in the city center. Truly a perfect location for our family...we were able to walk to most sites from the apartment. Additionally, the apartment was exactly as pictured and described, with a complete kitchen and comfortable beds. Everything was immaculate and the fresh flowers were a nice touch. The owner was gracious and helpful....I'd absolutely recommend this property.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in June for 3 nights and found it to be wonderful! Jolanda was a very accommodating hostess and helped us with anything we needed. We have an infant baby boy, so having a ground floor apartment was really important to us. The location was great because you could walk anywhere within a few minutes. The Anne Frank house was maybe a 5 minute walk. Train station maybe a 15-20 min walk. Really a nice place! We'd stay again anytime!

Jordaan apartment #241165 review

  • 2 of 5

The location was excellent. Jolanda, the owner of the rental (lives above the apt.), was just wonderful. She made sure that we had plenty of coffee, bathroom essentials, etc... However, the apartment (which was being rented to 4 adults for 6 nights) was not what we expected from the pictures. Dampness is a major concern. In the bathroom, there was no shower door. Therefore, the water from the shower sprays all over the rest of the very small bathroom. There is no ventilation in the bathroom to air it out or dry the water from the floor, the toilet, the sink. The wooden bathroom door is damaged due to the water splashing on it every time someone showers and should be replaced. The downstairs bedroom is very damp and maybe a dehumidifier would help. It is accessed by a ladder. The main floor bedroom is so small, only the bed fits in it. I had to crawl over my wife in order to get in/out of our bed. We also had a problem with the " dampness " and mold, which we could smell as soon as we entered the apartment every day. We would have to leave the front and back door open for quite a while to air the apartment out. This mold and smell was mentioned by another review we had read. We mentioned this review when we first arrived and we were assured that the problem had been fixed . l would not recommend this property for more than 1 couple or a small family.

Owner's Response: The damp this guest smells was from a leaking watertap in the kitchen, it was leaking for a long time but we didn't knew what the reason was. It is been fixed but the damp was in the kitchensink and it took some time that it was aired out. We discouvered this after the stay of this guest. The other damp situation was from a something completly different reason (rainwater), and that was solved last year. In the bathroom there is aircondition, there is a sign with the request to use this if you take a shower. Amsterdam has small old houses so this apartment is also small, but there is everything you need. You can' t compare this with the 3000 square feet house/mansion of this guest. As they told me in 2 minutes after their arrival. In whole Holland there is not 1 house of 3000 square feet. This apartment is only about 50 m2, but it's a good alternative instead of small hotelrooms. A ladder is something different, these are wooden stairs, as you can see on the pictures. The apartment is the same as on the pictures, we didn' t changed anything, only the plants died last months :).We replaced this for my antique collection Cologne pots. One of these guests must have liked that very much.
