The Best hotels in Jordaan

West of the Singel canal ring and around 1km from Centraal Station, the Jordaan began life as a neighbourhood of workers' homes, small factories and workshops. You'll find the best hotels in Jordaan in historic buildings within this grid of narrow streets and small canals.

Once a working-class neighbourhood, it lured artists and bohemians in the 1960s and '70s. In the 21st century, it has gone upscale, with trendy shops and galleries interspersed with smart cafés and wine bars. But it still has a certain funky vibe that's distinct from the rampant commercialism of Centrum. Traditional 'brown cafés' and charming old hofjes (almshouses) such as Claes Claeszhofje are typical of this part of town. The prime landmark is the towering 17th-century Noorderkerk, while the labyrinthine Antiekcentrum Amsterdam is an antique-hunter's joy. When you opt for one of the best places to stay in the Jordaan, you'll also find key attractions such as the Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk just across the Prinsengracht, and the Dam is just four blocks away.
