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!

Very pleased with my stay !
Anita , Greece
Amazing place! Very pleased with my stay, the room was clean , had everything that you would expect in a room such as toiletries essentials and the staff were very friendly! The only thing they could add a tea to the room could be nice :) But overall the breakfast bar seems very nice they had selections of different type of items which you could choose to eat, you need to add 10 euro to have the buffet but l think it worth it :) Lastly they allow you to store your luggage in a safe room until the check-in time , so was very pleased with that service as l was able to go explore the area without carrying my luggage.
The best thing about my stay was...That they were able to store my luggage as l couldn't check in yet !

Great for a weekend break
Robyn, United Kingdom
I stayed here for 3 nights in December, and was shocked with how lovely our room was! Big TV, massive bathroom (for two of us), and comfortable beds. The hotel actually has 4* on the front of the building, so I'm not sure this website is accurate in saying it is a 3* hotel. The only thing I'd say is that we had to walk 10 minutes to the tram station twice a day - if you have young children or don't fancy walking in the cold, there are probably hotels closer to the central area that you'd find easier. However for the price, I think this hotel was amazing and would recommend it for young couples or groups of friends.
The best thing about my stay was...The room and bathroom

good if your looking for a cheap hotel and dont care about good quality service. Not all staff were polite at the reception, we stayed there for 3 nights and our bed sheets were not changed once, but they are supposed to be changed every other day. Rooms were not thoroughly cleaned but maybe thats what you get for a 3 star hotel, apart from that the breakfast was probably the best as i thought there was quite a selection.
The best thing about my stay was...breakfast

Good, clean but far from center perfect to stay in summer!
Eva , Estonia
We stayed in March26 for 3 days. We ordered room only. Good hotel for valleys of Money. Girls at receptions were very friendly and helped us every time we need! Good location for peaceful rest after walking in Amsterdam. 10 minutes by walk till metro and 20 minutes by metro and you are in center. If you buy an IAMstedam pass no problems with transport and payment in museums more than 20 museums are free and others with discount. Our room was clean. Very clean bed line and towels. Furniture and design is a little bit old. But we came only to sleep and rest. It was not difficult to find hotel but I think that hotel can write more in description of location( for example: Last metro nr 53 station , turn left, pass Planetarium, pass camping, pass Prince Alexander Williams horse manage and here you are!!)Thanks alpharooms for great discount. It was lowest price of all!

Damien , the middle of nowhere (England)
Room was very tidy, Food and drink service poor. Clean atmosphere and friendly service. Only draw back was the fact of being in the middle of nowhere.

The accomadation is clean well run and freindly. It is close to a metro stop which made it convenient for the city. The only draw back was very slow service in the resteraunt.
