Can anyone tell me if staying in the Jordaan will be convenient if I want to stay in a neighborhood rather than a tourist area but still want to be close to Amsterdam's main attractions?
The friend I'll be traveling with and I are happy to walk almost anywhere and take public transport. But it'd be great to know how far—or close—everything else is so we don't feel as though we're in the middle of nowhere.
You maybe can tell that I've never been to Amsterdam? It could be quite small but I simply don't know.
All advice and hotel recommendations are more than welcome (beyond the reco's already posted, of course).
