The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
Second time we have visited this zoo and it is really delightful with good enclosures and plenty of animals over very large area.our highlight both times was watching the gorillas feeding time.Do Not Miss it really is interesting.
Very impressive place to visit.
Fascinating to be in his very house, where he not only worked, but also taught his many pupils. Audio tour very helpful, coupled with the numerous explanatory panels. Also good to see the living quarters and glimpse a little of domestic life in the 17th century.
Quite a few very steep, narrow spiral staircases, which...
this is probably the best WWII Resistance museum that I've been to and it has a great area set aside for kids. Mostly resistance related, it only touches upon the fact that the Dutch government sided with the Germans while the queen was in exile in England.
The synagogue is part of the Jewish cultural center tour...the synagogue is kept as it was when built..no electricity and no heat..the magnificent structure can be enjoyed as built..the only modern intrusion is the audio guide spots...you really get the feel of the place.
Just visited bakers and roasters today and have to say the pancakes are pretty good!
Not the cheapest of places to eat but definitely worth it, the pancakes were amazing and really filling,,great choice of food on the menu and friendly staff.
We had a lovely time for a mid- week dinner. The atmosphere is casual and tables are comfortably spaced. Loved the bread with garlic aioli and grilled eggplant appetizer (a bit spicy). The main dish of Chicken Kabobs with mushroom sauce was very generous and tasty. I can definitely recommend this place for food, service and an attentive manager.
A bit off the beaten track but a lovely old space full of charm. Fairly quiet by the time we got there for a 9pm booking but suspect the Dutch don't eat particularly late - this is not Spain after all. The food is solidly Dutch and very well executed. No frills, just good, decent produce treated well and served...

"Easygoing news years drinks"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by LiannePaul
Lovely personal service. With special out of the ordinary details. Food is home made (f.e the tomato relish on the burger), which you can taste!
They have a swing for children (instead of a babychair haha). The toilets are called “selfie room” , they were clean and you could see it they also are part of the concept. I would...
Very small hotel but very nice. Customer service was amazing!!! It’s within walking distance to most every where in Amsterdam, but far enough away you aren’t in the mix of the messy visitors often associated with Amsterdam. They even left us this adorable welcoming rubber ducky “Lucy” upon our arrival. The concierge Peter and the other staff are a huge...
Simply put the Intercontinental Amsterdam does luxury right. We stay about 50 nights a year at hotels and at quite a few ‘historic’ properties. Unfortunately, at historical properties, you sometimes have to sacrifice smaller comforts in order to experience the hotel. That is definitely not the case here. First class hotel, wonderful location, and excellent staff.
Check in - the...
"Outstanding and Peaceful Hotel with Indonesian Restaurant"
reviewed 2 days ago by Hermes_NL
The Hyatt Regency is a superbly understated five star hotel with a very nice Indonesian restaurant on board. It is fairly new and built in a former children's hospital. Rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The lobby and bar area is rich in a modern style inspired maybe on the seventies. There is also a pretty nice gym and sauna...

We stayed here for a short city break away and we were very impressed. Our room was right outside of the reception desk which we thought may be a problem but we didn't hear any noise from outside. it was spacious and cleaned everyday to a good standard.
The staff were very helpful in all enquiries and happy to help...
Good location 15/20 minutes to the train station and to the center.
I think room's furniture and toilet have been recently renovated (as the reception/hall), while room's windows seems older.
Didn't have breakfast (17€/pp) but got oliebol for free (typical Dutch NYE pastry)!
Worth more than 3 stars maybe.
