About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, in the Heart of Jordaan, Stones thow from everything

Located on the Elandsgracht, this is truly the center of the Jordaan neighborhood. The Prinsengracht (famous canal) is at the corner with 9 Streets (famous shopping streets) right across the bridge. Plenty of great shops, restaurants, things to see and feel local!


There is a feeling of comfort and being in your own home here. Maybe because I'm American and like everything big, but both the couch and bed are big and comfortable. The apartment is one above ground floor (US - 2nd, EU - 1st)


You have the entire apartment to yourself. You have a nice set of dishes/utensils for cooking, washer/dryer, TV, Cable, Wifi. You will have a whole chest of 6 drawers for clothes (since I keep the closet for myself). There is a coat closet to hang clothes in the kitchen (2 ft / 60 cm wide).


I have someone come in to greet and show you around the place when you arrive. In case any questions or help needed they will be available to call.


The neighborhood has the feel of living in the Amsterdam you see on pictures. It has a very local feel (a bit uppity) right in the center despite being a stone's throw from away everything. Personally, I like that I can spend a whole weekend without even leaving the neighborhood! (butcher, baker, grocer, barber, pastry shop, 10's of restaurants, and sheik pop-up shops are literally within a 150 meter radius here). Check it out for yourself: www (DOT) elandsgracht (DOT) com/?lang=EN

Also, the 9 Streets start at the end of the street (30 meters) :) de9straatjes (DOT) nl/en/home


You can walk anywhere from here (Leidseplein 5 minutes, Museumplein 15 mins) really the most recommended way (especially if you're visiting the first time) is via Bicycle!

Trams that connect you to anywhere are 200 meters away (Lijn 17, 10, 5)

The main bus station is also at the end of the street that will take you directly to the airport (Bus 197 every 17 minutes) or even the Beach in Haarlem.

About Peter Ciepiela

I'm American and am still in love with Amsterdam after 7 years. I ended up buying this place because I wanted the real experience of living in the rustic center, near canals, shops, and truly being a local. I'm also a passionate traveller and like to travel around the world and see new places. Next on the list I want to explore the America's (even the US feeling a bit like a tourist coming back!). That's why I leave my home in trusting hands when I'm gone :)

Peter Ciepiela purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Peter Ciepiela chose Jordaan

Spacious 1-bedroom on the Elandsgracht, in the heart of the Jordaan. The apartment can fit up to 4 people comfortably with one King Size bed and a giant (american sized) couch that converts into a King Size for sleeping in the living room.

The neighborhood is centrally located. You can walk anywhere in the center within 15 minutes but also easily spend a weekend here without walking more than 150 meters with everything within a stone's throw. Trendy shops and restaurants are peppered all around. The Anne Frank House is a short walk on the Prinsengracht.

A totally great apartment in the Jordaan, near everything. Lovely owner & host!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is the best of 11 apartments rented in Europe over the last couple of years; by far. It is spacious, comfortable, modern, open, and has the best and biggest shower we’ve encountered so far. The owner and host were both gracious, helpful and available, providing detailed information and assistance to make the stay completely comfortable. Both provided helpful information for everything we asked, including how to configure our cell-phones to properly dial them; recommended restaurants, etc. The host even waited 2 hours for a late flight even when our text notifying of the delay didn’t get through. The location is perfect! This apartment is on a wide and lovely street, centrally located within walking distance of all major sites. It is on the 1st floor (1 floor up for Americans), so you can watch the local world go by from the front windows. Everything you could want is available in 1 or 2 blocks; restaurants, cheese shop, liquor store, butcher, large grocery store, coffee shops and though it looked like it was being altered, a great ice-cream store. Excellent WiFi, a good kitchen, a washer/dryer combo, dishwasher, all needed amenities. A 5 minute walk to the Anne Frank house. We were joined by several friends from back home, them renting nearby apartments, and all agreed that ours was the best of the bunch. We entertained 8 for dinner. We highly recommend this apartment.

A very nice apartment in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable apartment that is ideally situated in the Jordan neighborhood. Just down the street is the Prinsengracht canal and the 9 Streets shopping area. Great restaurants in the neighborhood, and a supermarket just a few steps away from the apartment. There are two bathrooms in the apartment, so those guests sleeping in the living room don't have to go through the master bedroom to get to a bathroom. The housekeeper, Paini, was very charming and helpful, and really made us feel welcome. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is nicely furnished and maintained. The location is perfect: many restaurants and a grocery store nearby and all of the must see sights are within easy walking distance. Peter and his assistant Paini were very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our 6 night stay. This is a perfect location, close to shops, restaurants and bars but not noisy. All the comforts of home in a clean, well maintained unit. We will be back.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $430.72
Tax Rate 21.0%

Key to note: The coffee table is actually an ottoman, you can take the top off and slide into the L corner of the couch and sleep two very comfortably (I do have extra sheets, pillows, and cushion).
The wooden furniture (bed, coffee table) is from what they call 'Steigerhoud'. Literally refurbished wood from scaffolding in Dutch. I designed it myself and it's a pretty, trendy thing as of late.
