“Good location in the Jordaan district”

We stayed for 5 nights at the Studio Elf. We had the top floor which is the attic. The flat had a good kitchenette and a double and a single bed, two windows overlooking the street and was quite comfortable and cosy.. We had most of our dinners there. But there are plenty of restaurants nearby, although most are Asian, Indian and so on. Two supermarkets are nearby.
Getting up the stairs to the attic with luggage was a problem but Elske the hostess was very kind to help us . As the other comments before remarked, the only drawback is the very steep stairs - and the awkward bathroom and toilet which are separate and miniscule -definitely not helpful for somebody who suffers from backache (like I do) . Location is quite good for sightseeing and Anne Frank House is the nearest.

“Perfect Apartment”

Sweet apartment on the top floor, perfect for the three of us. Nice to have a kitchen to eat in. Great location, just a minute or two to walk to the grocery store or laundrette and there are many restaurants very close by. A five minute walk to the centre canal rings. Just watch out, it's a Dutch staircase to get upstairs. Tricky with luggage or big feet.

“Pure Joordan Gem”

The location of this charming apartment is ideal - within walking distance (or short tram ride) from all central Amsterdam attractions, yet far enough away from the noise of the "hearty party" crowd. The local neighbourhood features several good grocery stores and markets, so we made our breakfasts and most dinners ourselves in the apartment and saved a good deal on restaurants. The landlady Elske was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Would recommend this apartment to anyone.

“Great nighborhood”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Jordan is a wonderful place to be in. The place we rented is full of character but could do with a little renovation. The place is fine if you want a place to sleep but not much more.

“Charming, perfect stay, great location... and quiet day and night.”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is a cherming place in Joordan, close to everything, but not too close for comfort. The only inconveniente is to shower sitting down, and getting luggage up the stairs. The place had everything you needed, and there were great places to eat nearby. Elske was waiting for us, geeted us, showed us the apartment, and recommennded an Indonesian take out 50 meters from the attic, and it turned out to be quite memorable indeed. The place is warm and cozy, no TV, which is appreciated, and very quiet at night, except for the few passing by on weeknights.
