The apartment was really good. Three bathrooms was very convenient especially one at the living room floor level. It was clean and had great kitchen/dining facilities, and comfy armchairs. I'd not realised how good the canal view was going to be. We all found the beds really comfortable. My mother and her friend are elderly but managed the very steep stairs which you can't really avoid if you want to stay in a traditional Amsterdam house. The shops are really local and we made good use of the several tram routes which stop just round the corner and mean you can get anywhere in Amsterdam in just a few minutes. We also enjoyed just walking around the quiet Jordaan area.
