Located in a quiet, residential street in the very heart of the Jordaan, DB's is a Home Away from Home: not far from Central Station, close to bars, restaurants, the Monday textile and Saturday food/farmers markets and many tourist attractions.

Had a faboulous time in Amsterdam. Aparment was lovely & Dianne couldn’t have been more helpful. Would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend staying here. Apartment is close to all sights & was a very comfortable base to explore Amsterdam.

Management response:

Thank you for your flattering comments. I love the Happycamper name, a real traveller.

I picked this place to stay for our short trip to Amsterdam because I knew that my husband likes to get the feel of what it would be like to live in our travel destination.

We really enjoyed our stay - apartment was clean and well equipped. Diane was a brilliant host and very welcoming. We were able to drop our luggage off before the 2.00pm check in which was appreciated. Diane provided fresh coffee, bread, cold meats and cheese which were all delicious. Excellent location - would not hesitate to stay there again.

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. We always like to hear from guests who enjoy their stay in Amsterdam.

About the neighbourhood
The Jordaan area of Amsterdam offers a real flavour of the city. It is a residential area with points of local history, and a choice of shops (super)markets, restaurants and cafés. See the different styles of architecture and visit the Hofjes, hidden behind the streets. Enjoy a reasonably priced meal at one of the café restaurants, or take out an excellent Indonesian meal, or book at table at one of the many restaurants, all within a short walk. The 'Nine Streets' district is a short walk where you can visit a great variety of shops featuring local designs.
