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!

8/10 Great

17 November 2011

Good hotel, quiet and very close to the bus station.

Hotel and rooms are good. Breakfast is correct. The best is that the bus station is in front of the hotel entrance and you can take a bus every 10-15 minutes to the central rail station, having a 12-15 minutes ride.

The best thing about my stay was...

All was good.

Buen hotel en general. Recomendable.

Hotel muy correcto en todos los aspectos. Aunque alejado del centro, la conexión en bus es muy buena (cada 10-15 min. pasa uno). El desayuno siempre es igual pero la variedad no está mal. En recepción amables.

10/10 Amazing

Excellent value hotel

Three of us travelled by car from Britain and we were not disappointed in any way with this lovely hotel. The room was a decent size, the beds comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We would definitely recommend this place and will certainly use it again the next time we come to Amsterdam.

Great hotel

Hotel was lovely, nice big room for the three of us, lovely clean shower and good breakfast! Only downside was the location but if you don't have a problem with a 10 min bus journey to the centre of town then this is a great hotel and good value for money.
