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.

Really can’t be beat

  • 5 of 5

Previous reviews attesting to the great location and wonderful apartment are all true. My wife and I found the apartment to have great space, well set up with kitchen ware, with quiet sleeping in the back. You are immersed in the immediate neighborhood with everything you need, and can reach so much of urban Amsterdam by walking. Highly recommended.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Peter's beautiful apartment. It felt incredibly roomy and the couch and bed were very comfortable. We slept very well here. The location was perfect - Jordaan is such a beautiful neighborhood with everything within walking distance. We would highly recommend Foodhallen, Cibo & Vino, and Kathmandu Kitchen for a great meal! The kitchen had all of the basics needed to cook a meal and the coffee provided was a great start to our morning. Albert Heijn grocery store was right next door and had everything we needed. Paini greeted us warmly and made us feel right at home, showing us around and instructing us on using the washers. Peter was always accommodating and flexible if any changes to the reservation were needed. We enjoyed our stay so much, we already reserved another stay next year. We can't wait to come back! Thanks for everything.

Best apartment, best location ever

  • 5 of 5

I have little to add to the other great reviews but must express personally that this apartment and location could not possibly get any better. Three women stayed here. The one staying on the sofa did great and had her own closet in the kitchen. Plenty of storage, grocery, cheese store, restaurants and liquor store directly below and just a few blocks from nine streets and Anne Frank house and canal boats. For us Uber was the best (cost effective when splitting 3 ways). Peter actually had great cooking supplies and sharp knives (I never find that in rentals). Other guests left condiments and plenty of things to use (sweet housekeeper checks expiration dates) so we had everything we needed. We will return and we will stay here again. No doubt about it.

Lovely & spacious, in great location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and clean, with a really nice atmosphere. Great location, a little walk away from all the hussle and bustle, and in a less “touristy” area, which we love. Lots of smaller boutique shops on your doorstep, and a supermarket next door.

The bed was very comfy, and the home had plenty of equipment. Having the extra loo was a bonus too, as there were 3 of us! Nice touch, having the toiletries and slippers, and the gift of wine and biscuits too. Thank you.

We couldn’t work the TV though, but that wasn’t a problem! (Followed instructions to no avail).

Would happily stay here again.

Wonderful flat in a convenient and very fun neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well appointed. It is on a lively street, but bedroom is in back so street noise is not an issue. Everything we needed, or wanted, was within walking distance. We loved our stay and would return in a heartbeat.

Big apartment on active street

  • 5 of 5

Clean apartment on a vibrant street. Very comfortable furniture, large space. Great bathroom and shower, nice little balcony. Peter was very easy to work with and had a bottle of wine, stroopwaffles and metro cards with money on them in the apartment when we arrived. Washer great but you need to hang clothes to dry but there are lines to do that. We stayed for two weeks and were calling it home after day 1. Highly recommend.

Refundable Damage Deposit £309.1

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.
