Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A nice area to walk around where you can see the traditional Dutch houses along the canals. It was quiet and pleasant when we were there.

    It wasn't on my original itinerary! Got extra time in one afternoon, I took a free-ferry ride got there. I did the swing and had a Heinkien and bitterballen at the restaurant. The bitterballen was delicious!

    This was amazing! The audio guide was good, and the details about Rembrandt were very interesting.
    The house itself is worth the visit too- it feels very authentic, and though it states that it's not filled with actual Rembrandt articles, it doesn't make it feel fake.
    The entry fee is a little high compared to other places, but I really loved it, and am happy to have been.

    Location was beautiful, you come across many eateries, and a river right in front of the station. A charming location to spend the entire evening

    Really enjoyed my time here - There was no queue to get in if you have a digital ticket and you get a free (and very detailed) audio tour.

    The tour focuses on the 1st floor, in the rooms surrounding the impressive Citizen's Hall which are all beautiful and well worth seeing if you're in the city.

    My only critique would be I would have wanted to see more of the palace, however, I understand these are working buildings and that is not always possible.

    Dam Square is nice to see, but it also has so many streets leading off to explore, so you will get to see it more than once. It's easy to find, so very useful for planning routes to other attractions as well.

    We struggled to find it- our fault, our map was basic- but I'm so glad we finally did.
    It's amazing to walk in and feel the peace. The chapel was beautiful, and the Houten Huys (one of the oldest in Amsterdam) is worth seeing.
    Read the plaques- its history is so interesting, and remember people are actually living here, so don't treat it like a fairground. :)

    When you're in Amsterdam, it is difficult if not impossible to avoid the famous grachtengordel, the three canals added in the seventeenth century. My favourite is the Herengracht, with its large and splendid patricians' houses, but I like the other two as well. Visit the Grachtenmuseum on the Herengracht if you want to learn about the canals and their significance. Their well-treed beauty is self-evident.

    Lovely space, nice shops and great vibe.
    I would have liked more vegetarian/vegan options in the food area, as I had limited choice.

    This very well preserved synagogue is certainly worth a visit. It is one of the biggest synagogues built by the jews fleeing from Portugal during the sixteenth century. We may admire the huge stone columns supporting the very high ceiling. In the basement the visitor may see a short film with the history of the sephardite jews as well as several cult objects, many of the centuries old. There are audio guides and a well done flyer.

    We were here for the 2Cellos concert.
    The acoustics are really good, there is no backlash or annoying noise.
    Many bars and lockers.
    Great!

    Then you will like the houseboat that is populated only by cats and kittens! Dog lovers might be as impressed.
