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!

Excellent hotel

Having chosen this hotel mostly on location (and reviews) I am pleased to say that I had an excellent stay. The hotel is located 2 minutes from Central Station and you can see it across the road as you emerge from the station. The staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. I didn't opt for the breakfast, as it was priced at 25 Euros and I felt this was a little pricey, however having walked past the dining area it looked a cosy environment to enjoy a bite to eat. With its central location, all the major attractions are within walking distance and there is a small stand in the foyer offering discount vouchers for most of the 'must see' sites. The rooms were clean and tidy. Unfortunately I did get a room overlooking the air con units so I can't say it was a particularly exciting view, although i'm sure a view over the river (which I did request) would have been quite magical at sunset and sunrise. I was in one of the 'superior' rooms and it was perfectly pleasant. I have to agree that it was quite dated, but the room itself I couldn't fault. Great shower with a selection of toiletries on offer. I found it a bit frustrating to find a bottle of water in the room, with a tag around the neck saying it was 5 euros, so I just went out and bought my own. I really couldn't find much wrong with the hotel and to be honest aside from sleeping I was out and about so the minor things I overlooked. Being central it does mean you've got the option to pop back if you need to without relying on a tram ride. There is a deposit to pay on arrival, which is refunded to you when you check out. In addition there is city tax to pay when you complete your stay. Neither of these things were made clear when I booked. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Book with confidence.

Great hotel!

My partner and I had a 3 night stay in the Amsterdam Park Plaza for the second year running, this again was a brilliant trip and the hotel was up to our expectations, although disappointed that we could not have any beauty treatments as planned due to staff holidays the rest the stay made up for it and we had a lovely stay. The hotel is very clean and the Elemis toiletries were a lovely bonus.

Pricey, but worth it

Hotel is in an excellent position. As soon as you leave the front of Central Station, the hotel is right across the road, literally 1 3 minute walk. We arrived at 10.15am and fully expected just to dump our cases and wander around for 4 hours until we could check in. The lady on reception was excellent, we could check in straight away and we were upgraded to a Superior Suite. Gorgeous room in the Garden Wing, all mod cons and lovely furnishing and we faced the Central Station - great to look out the window and people watch. However, if you had a room between the 2 buildings, you'd face the opposite wall or someone elses room, not great really. Breakfast was lovely, a really big selection, enough to fill you up all day. There is a gym downstairs, but you pay 15 euro to use it, and then if you want the steam room, its another 15 euro - quite expensive really. All staff very very friendly and helpful

Great hotel

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. 5 minutes walk from the train station and just round the corner from Amsterdam shops, bars, museums etc. Breakfast was plentiful. Well stocked buffet with hot and cold foods, fresh bread and lovely fruit. We were upgraded on arrival to an executive suite at no extra charge - beautiful room with huge bed. All staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful.

The best thing about my stay was...

Big room and lovely breakfast and location.

Just as it should be

This hotel is well placed for visiting Amsterdam, and its position opposite the Central Station means that getting there by train from Schiphol really couldn't be any easier. The reception staff are welcoming and friendly; the porters very helpful and the room was superb. The breakfast is very good, with a huge choice of menu to suit all tastes. This is the second time I've stayed at the Victoria and would recommend it to anyone.
