Resort Info

Amsterdam

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.

Leafy Vondelpark

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.

Top Tip:

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!

Amsterdam nightlife

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.

Top Tip:

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.

Top Tip:

Try an evening cruise. Once the sun goes down the bridges and canal side houses light up giving the canals a magical feel.

 

We Recommend

 

Café Hoppe

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.

Daalder

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!

Fantastic hotel and breakfast

Started a bit bad as the shuttle bus took an hour to pick us up from the airport despite being advertised as 20 mins. Then booking was under a different name and caused confusion to add to our waiting time to check in - this was cleared up and we were given a free drink token for the bar. Breakfast was fantastic and the range was excellent you won't go hungry. Room was so clean and changed every day - shower is fantastic too.

The best thing about my stay was...

Breakfast and comfort of bed

Bad

When arrived at hotel had to pay an extra 150 euros for room deposit which we was not told about. They also told us that the room we booked did not exist as we booked a room with 2 double beds and ended up with a room with two single beds and a added camp bed which they tried to make us pay for.

The view from the room

We loved it!

Great stay at Ramada Apollo, would definitely stay with this chain again! Really lovely rooms and the roof top terrace was amazing! Staff really helpful and it was a perfect location to get in and out of Amsterdam centre. What we were not aware of, was the 150 euro deposit you have to pay on arrival and then they take the city tax off when they refund it back to you on departure, just be aware and have a card on you for this!! An overall lovely hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

The rooftop terrace!

An amazing room and hotel

The room was lovely and got what I asked for. The service was brilliant and they spoke excellent English so communicating was no problem. They had a shuttle from the airport to hotel and then vice versa. The breakfast and dinner has a variety of everything and were excellent times. Travelling to the centre of Amsterdam was easy but the tram stop just outside the hotel. Couldn't fault it.

The best thing about my stay was...

Roof top restaurant and room

Excellent as always!

Having stayed at the hotel as recently as last December, my partner and I decided to treat ourselves to a return visit .We availed of the complimentary shuttle from the airport to the hotel,(something we learned about on our last visit). This arrived promptly and whisked us there without a hitch. We had been informed that our room might not be ready (we arrived early) so the hotel kindly stored our luggage while we took ourselves off to the city center for a few hours shopping and sightseeing.On our return, We had been upgraded to lovely city view room which was spectacular! We stayed two nights on this occasion, and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and service on the 17th floor. This is where the food and drinks are served.With easy access to the city from the nearby tram service, Visitors to Amsterdam would find it hard to beat the Ramada Apollo for Value and service.

The best thing about my stay was...

The Best thing was the breakfast closely Followed by the Excellent Belgian beer we were recommended in the bar! bar

Very pleasant stay and great choice of hotel!

Booking a weekend break for my boyfriends birthday, I wanted to stay in a hotel which was a good price, decent location and nice facilities. After looking on Trip Adviser, I narrowed it down to the Ramada Apollo. Once we arrived I was immediately pleased with my booking. Roughly 25 minutes from the airport, we got there in no time at all. The staff were very polite and helpful, in particular we had a young girl called Chantal checking us in, and we got upgraded straight away. The room was very nice and modern but felt cosy, with a great view. There is a tram stop right outside the hotel, which takes you straight to the Dam Square in about 10-15 minutes. We bought the tram tickets at the hotel, which cost €12 each for 48 hours, with the ability to jump on and off wherever you like; very ideal. We got breakfast included with our deal and was pleased with the selection of food available. On our return we got the shuttle bus service supplied by the hotel to the airport which cost €5 each but is cheaper than getting a taxi; but make sure you book your spot. Overall we were very pleased with our stay and would definitely come back to the Ramada.

The best thing about my stay was...

I told the desk the trip was for my boyfriends birthday and we got our room upgraded before we had even checked in.
