The historic centre of Amsterdam plays host to a huge number of visitors each year. The list of reasons to visit this beautiful city is long and varied. The relatively compact centre is packed with historical buildings, picturesque canals and cultural hotspots. From the wonderfully quirky, laid back Jordaan in the west to the old centre and Nieuwmarkt in the east, Amsterdam is a great city to walk around. If you arrive via the vast Centraal Station, the city spreads out in front of you. Follow the mighty Damrak down to Dam Square and beyond towards Vondelpark and Museumplein in the south. The canals will either confuse or guide you. The centre of the city extends as far as the fourth canal in the inner ring – Prinsengracht. The four main canals sweep around the old city before colliding with the River Amstel to the east.
Art and history lovers will be spoilt for choice in Amsterdam. See the work of Dutch Masters including Van Gogh and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum before paying an emotional visit to the Anne Frank House on Prinsengracht in the heart of the Jordaan. If you are in Amsterdam on a sunny day you should head down to the leafy Vondelpark. There is a lovely café and restaurant but you could just pick up some food and find a little patch of shady grass to stretch out on. Fully recharged you can head into the centre of Amsterdam and take advantage of the wide range of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs.
Things to do in Amsterdam
Eat and drink in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a large, international city and you can eat what you want, when you want. The main streets running through the centre of the city are busy with a wide range of restaurants and bars. For a more intimate and authentic experience, head west into the Jordaan. This area of the city has resisted the excesses of modern life and held onto a more independent, artisan approach to living. The bars on every corner are cosy and welcoming with simple menus and drinks on offer. Local restaurants and cafes are tucked away on the little lanes leading across the four main canals. The Spui is home to larger grand cafes where well-dressed locals mingle with visitors to the city. The food and service is more polished with the added benefit of some excellent people watching opportunities. The area around Nieuwmarkt is home to a good range of great value restaurants.
Try the local speciality - Rijsttafel. A colonial inspired Indonesian feast consisting of a huge range of small dishes. Make sure you are hungry – there can be as many as forty separate dishes served up!
The city is busy with bars and clubs and you will find somewhere that plays the music you like on most days of the week. The bars are open late and very busy at the weekend. Head down to Leidseplein for a drink. The square is lined with popular bars and a mixed crowd. The area offers a bit of late fun for all – you will find several large live music venues including Melkweg and the Sugar Factory as well as the casino and a wide range of theatres. Nearby Rembrandtplein is a good alternative and perhaps better suited to visitors looking for a late night clubbing experience. You will find a good range of large, popular bars as well as large clubs including Escape and Studio 80.
Shopping in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is great city to shop in. The picturesque streets leading through the centre are lined with both large department stores and boutiques selling more exclusive goods. The Magna Plaza in Dam Square is worth a visit. This former main post office building is a beautiful piece of architecture from the outside. Step inside the ancient walls and the interior is a multi-level shopping paradise. Beyond Dam Square, Kalverstraat is home to a wide range of large brands and local specialist stores. The ‘nine streets’ district (Negan Straatjes) nestled between the canals is home to jewellery and vintage goods specialists. If you love antiques and art then you should head down to the Speigelkwartier. The area is busy with little specialist dealers and markets. High end fashion followers need look no further than P.C. Hoofstraat, the ultimate in exclusive shopping.
Amsterdam has some amazing flea markets – look out for the weekly market in Nieuwmarkt.
Things to see in Amsterdam
Start with a long walk along the canals, explore the flower market, and admire the gable fronted building dating back to the 17th century. Art lovers should make a point of visiting the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum down in Museumplein. The Artis Zoo out beyond Waterlooplein to the east is a great place to visit with the family. For a water level view of the city and historic canals, consider taking a boat cruise. The options are seemingly endless and a weekend trip will not seem enough. Make sure you leave time for some people watching from the windows of a grand café.
Try an evening cruise. Once the sun goes down the bridges and canal side houses light up giving the canals a magical feel.
This ‘brown café’ should be top of your list of bars to try during your visit to Amsterdam. The old part of the bar was established in 1670 and is pretty much unchanged due to the listed status it enjoys. Take a seat at the bar and soak up a little bit of old Amsterdam. The bar is on the edge of Spuistraat which sits on the Singel canal.
This amazing little restaurant is nestled in the heart of the Jordaan on Lindengracht. From the outside this is just another quirky little corner café but step inside and you are greeted by a top class restaurant serving fresh, exciting food that draws on both local and international influences.
King’s Day – April 27th
Prior to 2014 the whole nation would come together on the 30th April to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday with a huge party that spreads across the city with live music, parties and impromptu bars and food stalls. Queen’s Day has now become King’s Day as Willem-Alexander, the Queens oldest son has taken over the throne. The party is no less enthusiastic!

5 day city break
Amanda Walsh, Dublin Ireland
The hotel is exactly as described the staff are fantastic and very friendly and helpful, some people gave the breakfast a bad review but I had no problems with the range of food available, The rooms are spotlessly clean and the bathroom is a great size the duvet and pillows are a bit odd to start with but the beds are very comfortable the only fault I had with the hotel was the lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom although you can get coffee at a charge 24 hours in the reception area I did not find this very convenient.

Comfortable hotel in Museum Area
Tony Dane, Livingston
We arrived early but hoped to drop our cases off so that we could go sightseeing, however our rooms were ready for us, a double and a triple. The welcome was very friendly, leaflets were supplied before we could ask. There are several tram routes within a few minutes walk of the hotel which will take you to the main attractions. Only once did we wait more than 5 minutes for a tram and the 72 hour pass that we had purchased from the Tourist Information at the airport was the best way to get around. Each time we returned to the hotel we were recognised and greeted warmly. The rooms were spacious, plainly decorated but comfortable, as the beds must have been judging by the speed I fell asleep. I would happily recommend the hotel if you are looking for a convenient bed and breakfast base.
The best thing about my stay was...The friendliness of the Amsterdam residents

problem free weekend break - great!
very welcoming pleasant and helpful staff - spacious modern comfortable room with large windows overlooking rear garden so also very quiet at night - easy walking distance to museums and some eating places though a longish walk into the town centre if you are not a good walker - we walked everywhere as the weather was lovely though there are plenty of trams running into the centre from across the road from the hotel. We followed the trip advisor's advice and took the 197 bus from the airport (4 euros) which stops virtually opposite the hotel and runs about every 15 minutes - excellent!
The best thing about my stay was...We simply had no problems with anything.

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay here. Location is ideal walking distance from everywhere although for RLD might be better using tram. Bus and tram stop almost outside door. 197 to/from airport only 3 euros. Loads of trams pass by 5, 12, 16 and 24 which cover the entire city. Breakfast was good but be down before 9.30 to get hot eggs and bacon. The room was nice and beds were comfortable. Bathroom was excellent, reception staff very helpful. Overall great value highly recommended

Conscious Hotel - Great Service
Colin Nicholls, Shrewsbury, UK
Location - in the museum quarter, in a quiet road on a tram route which is handy, but the old town is only a 20-25 minute rather pleasant walk past museums, shops and canals. A good location if you want to be near the centre but without the hustle and bustle. Room - spacious and recently refurbished to a very high standard, like a four-star hotel room. The shower room did not have a bath, but a good-sized glass shower cubicle and very high quality throughout. Two single beds had comfy furnishings. Food - board basis is bed and breakfast, and the breakfast comprised cereals, juices, bread, croissants, bacon & scrambled egg; cheese and cold meat, coffee and teas. This was self-service, in a very light and pleasant dining room, contemporary furnishings and overlooking a courtyard garden with outdoor seating. Service - The staff at the hotel could not do enough for us and every one of them we encountered was friendly and helpful, always making time to talk and give advice on the local sights and amenities. When my partner was ill, they were especially helpful and went way beyond the call of duty. I would recommend this hotel and plan to return.

Good Hotel.Good Location.staff very friendly.The room was clean & tidy with very comfy beds.I would say the room we were given was quite small(rm 208)but still had everything we required however having viewed some of the other rooms I would say they seemed to be very genourous in size,maybe we got the small room as we had a deal through Alpha Rooms.The hotel was very easy to reach by public bus.Take the 197 from the airport and head to Musemplein district(approx 20mins) cost £3.40.The hotel is 2mins away from the concert hall.the only thing that was disapointing was the cost I paid fro the Sparkling Wine.I had chosen amsterdam as a birthday treat for my friend and had arranged for a bottle of Champagne & 2 glasses to be in the room on arrival.I was told of the price £32.41 Euros before hand and agreed as I didnt know what prices I would pay.However what we got was Sparkling Wine and thot this very very expensive considering I could get champagne for less...My mistake though I could have said no and checked out prices prior to agreeing.My only other gripe which is a small one is that breakfast was very good but having arrived at 10.25(on the sunday brakfast served till 11.00am)The waiter/cook wasn't best pleased when we asked if we could get some eggs & bacon cooked as there was none in the warming trays,he proceeded to mutter under his breath.we arrived fro breakfast at 09.30 on the monday (breakfast till 10.00am) and again had to ask fro eggs & bacon although on this occassion the waiter/cook who was different from the previous day gladly obliged.The reception stored our cases for an extra hour after we checked out which was very helpful.In all I would definately return to this hotel.

David Laight, belfast
The public area's and carpets are looking a bit worn, the rooms were spacious and well lit. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the usual european fare, bread, cheese cold meats. Scrambled egg's and Bacon were also available but if your looking for your full english I would recommend looking elsewhere. The hotel is right next to the 16 Tram stop and the surrounding area is nice and quite with nice restuarants and a couple of nice bars. All in all I would happily stay in the Museum Square Hotel again when I visit Amsterdam.

Calum Mclaren, Scotland
The hotel was in a super location , just down from the Van Gough Musuem . The rooms were clean , staff super friendly , especially the evening receptionist. The help received from the hotel staff in all matters , from directions to keeping the room on longer than booked was first class. We both really enjoyed Amsterdam and when we return we will definitely stay in this hotel again. Thank you for a super break. Calum and Gillian room 105
