We're looking at catching the train from London to Amsterdam. One of the cheapest tickets has an arrival time of 23:40 at Amsterdam Centraal, meaning we probably wouldn't be out of the station until midnight?
We are staying about 3km away from the station near Diamantbuurt.
I had a few questions I was hoping to get some advice on:
1. How safe is it arriving at Amsterdam Centraal this late night at night?
2. Will it be easy to get a taxi from the the station to the Diamantbuurt area at this time of night?
3. Any estimate on what a taxi would cost? I've checked World Taxi Fares, but I wasn't sure if there is a surcharge for night-time fares.
If arriving this late isn't advised, we have the option of getting a train that arrives around 7pm (20 euros more per person), or we can get a flight (but I much prefer the idea of getting the train).
Appreciate any suggestions!
