About Jolanda

We are a family of 4 and we live for more than 23 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 Amsterdam City

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.

Very nice space with small bedrooms

  • 4 of 5

Very nice space but the bedrooms were a little small. I guess that is normal for Amsterdam. It was in a very nice location relatively close to transit, restaurants, pubs and the Anne Frank house. It was a comfortable apartment and everything it was advertised to be except we did a load of laundry and the drier didn't work, which means we left Amsterdam with some wet close. If the drier worked it would have been 5 stars.

We loved the apartment. It was clean and spacious. The location was great and we could easily walk to many of the attractions . We were also close to the stop for the hop on hop off bus, and used this to see many more of Amsterdam's highlights.

Excellent location on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

Jolanda's apartment is wonderfully situated in the Jordaan area of amsterdam - minutes from some great restaurants and the Anne Frank House. We are a big walking family - everything is walking distance. There is a bike rental shop about 200 metres from the apartment. The apt is well-appointed with plenty of natural light (but not in the basement/sous-terrain bedroom). We were greeted by a friend of Jolanda's upon arrival - one of the easiest VRBO check ins we've had and much appreciated after a long flight from the Canadian westcoast. We would definitely stay in this apt again.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I stayed there on our recent trip to Europe. The place is clean, well decorated and close to many of the things we liked to do. Plus it was very easy to navigate around from the tram. Yolanda was great and very accommodating ( She didn't get mad when we accidently locked ourselves out at 2am). This is a great place to stay for just about anyone. I would caution that their was a slight mildew smell in the apartment. But it wasn't overbearing and didn't take away from enjoying the place. However, may not be suitable for someone with sever allegories or asthma.

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.
