A lot can be said about our comfortable Bed and Breakfast Jordaan in the centre of Amsterdam. Yes, we received 4 awards since 2007 but we figure that an endless website would be as bothering as a talkative host.

Neighbourhood & House


The Jordaan is a dense patch of small-scale streets and canals peppered with interesting shops, galleries, charming 'hofjes' and inviting brown cafes. Quirky and characterful, with an intimate, easy-going atmosphere of it's own. It was built for workers at the same time when the 'Grachtengordel' (Canal-rings) were completed.

Our house was originally built by a master carpenter and his family and later rebuilt by a printersfamily. The story is told by the old, picturesque craftsmanship tile in our gable. It is a historic part of the Jordaan since 1661. When Bed and Breakfast Jordaan opened it's doors 340 year later (in 2001) it was skilfully renovated with help of the Amsterdam Gable-sign Fund.

Our Services


We offer a Dutch Breakfast with local breads, cheeses, sausages (cold-cuts), jams, orange-juice etc. which will be served in the privacy of your room. If you prefer cereals or a vegetarian breakfast please mention this in your reservation request.

While serving breakfast I always have plenty of time to answer your questions or, on request, suggest things to do or places to eat. Also on any other hour of the day you are welcome to contact us. Our B&B rooms are on the lower levels of our family-home so also an early or very late arrival or departure is never a problem.

Our family consists of my husband Paul, our 2 young kids and me Charlotte. We usually run the B&B entirely without outside help so you always know whom to address and we know for sure that everything is as clean and complete as you may expect it to be. During our holiday our B&B is run by a responsible friend :) .

We try to offer a good balance between privacy, attention and help. We do speak several languages (English, French, German, Dutch and a little Spanish and Portuguese) and know our city well. We are looking forward to share our knowledge with you.

A Renovated Award-winner


[RENOVATED]
In 2009 we completed a major whole year renovation of our tradtional home. We kept the traditional atmosphere while creating comfortable, safe rooms with new ensuite bathrooms.

We kept:
>> The Gable-tile, piles, sidewalls, steep roof & a little tiled floor all of 1661.
>> Also the front gable, paneldoors, handles, bannisters, floors and old colours (like the red 'oxblood').

We built:
>> Bathrooms with traditional Terrazzo tiled floors, -Mosa 'yellows' on the wall.
>> Powerful lovely warm showers (due to the new water main and high capacity gas-waterheater).
>> A new heating system which serves every room seperately.
>> Lots of big windows in the new rear gable overlooking the inner gardens.
>> New Solar Energy panels on the roof.
>> We used as much ecological materials (isolation, paints, plasters, woods etc.) as possible to create a healthy atmosphere for the builders, you and us.
>> The size of the renovation made it possible to implement all safety requirements and fire regulations of this century (like fire barriers etc.) and, although home-run B&B's in Amsterdam are not officilaly obliged to do so, the fire equipment is tested every year.

We're very happy to see that our guests appreciate the result and, as the reviews reveal, appreciate our personal approach.
