Centrally located, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, including two teenagers, spent 4 nights at this home.

This is a typical older Amsterdam home with a lot of character. The home is located at one of the most charming neighborhoods of Amsterdam, Jordaan. The house is 1/2 block away from a canal and 2-3 short blocks away from the Anne Frank house. It is centrally located, such that we did not need to use public transportation to get to the center of the city, where most tourist attractions are located (which saved us money as public transport in Amsterdam is more expensive than other European capitals we visited). It took us 20 minutes to walk to downtown. A small-med sized supermarket is 8-10 minutes walk away.

The house is traditional with typical Amsterdam stairs. That means narrow and steep stairs, especially between the ground floor and the first floor. I recommend you consider this when packing and limit suitcase size and weight. It would be very difficult (but not impossible) to bring a 50 pound case to the 4th level bedroom. All rooms, including bathrooms/shower are small and narrow, which again, is typical in such older Amsterdam houses.

The house was clean and comfortable. Wifi was good at all levels of the house

I trust that these older cold climate homes do not have AC. Therefore we slept with the windows open. If you visit Amsterdam in the summer you will find many locals staying out late (it gets dark at 10-11pm). They spend time at neighborhood bars/restaurants, which are on every street, to get out of their small and hot houses. They site outdoors and socialize until late at night, therefore, there is noticeable street noise which might keep you up. There is a small restaurant across the narrow street and a bar several houses over. It remains noisy until after midnight, but as mentioned above, I saw these social gatherings on every street in Amsterdam.

Overall we very much enjoyed our stay at this home and would return if we visit Amsterdam in the future.

Perfect home base

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our visit to Amsterdam and our stay at Poppenhuis-Jordaan worked out perfectly. Communicating with the owner Tony and working out the arrangements was easy with no glitches or surprises. And the local host Rick was gracious and helpful.

My wife and I had everything we needed in this clean, four-story self-contained apartment. The first floor kitchen is very small as you would expect but includes a refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. There is also a washer & dryer and a toilet on the first floor. There is a cozy living area on the second floor, a bedroom and toilet on the third, and another bedroom and shower on the fourth.

The location of this home really couldn't be better. We walked just about everywhere from here but it's also just a few minute walk to a tram stop.

Many reviewers have commented on the stairs. They are certainly noteworthy. They are quite steep, particularly those between the first and second floors, but didn't detract from our stay at all. Who doesn't need more exercise? I suppose if you're very physically limited this house might not be for you, but any reasonably fit person will be fine.

My wife and I are probably more sensitive to noise than most and we found the neighborhood to be pretty quiet. There's a cafe around the corner with outside seating and we could hear a little bit of that in the evening but it was not intrusive and didn't go on too late. We also heard the bells from the Westerkerk but for us that just added to the experience. They've been ringing those bells for centuries. Anne Frank listened to those bells!

If we ever make it back to Amsterdam we'd certainly consider staying at Poppenhuis again.

Beautiful Jordaan Home

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed 9 nights in this very beautiful little Dutch home. There were 3 of us and it was very comfortable with everything we needed. The stairs take some getting used to. The first flight is the steepest. But, we did get used to them and just made sure to take our time going up and coming down. Rick and Tony were amazing, they made sure to accommodate all our needs. The location of this home is perfect. Walking distance to Anne Frank, shops, restaurants, pubs and transit. I would highly recommend this property!!

Quaint Location in the Heart of Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this apartment. So cute and comfy beds, great living spaces, kitchen and great shower. Loved hearing the church bells. They aren't loud, just hear them in the distance. Tried recording them but didn't work. :)) Location was absolutely perfect. In the quaintest neighbourhood away from the main streets and all the noise. However close enough to walk everywhere. A cafe around every corner, as well as great shopping and Anne Frank house 8 minutes away. We felt like we had been dropped into a movie set staying here, but this is Amsterdam. Very historic and beautiful canals, etc etc. I can't say enough. Thank you Tony.

Great location in the center of the Jordaan

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice, clean and located in a nice area. Rick, the manager was very attentive to our needs. It was somewhat loud on the weekend, but it is in the center of the city, so it's expected. The biggest drawback is the stairs. They are pretty standard for Amsterdam - steep and narrow - but still difficult to negotiate. All in all it was a great experience.
