The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

    Old time charm at Hoppes at Spui
    Great visit at Hoppe Cafe. We visited Hoppe for our friend's recommendations. Old time charm is present at Hoppe's. Good selection of Tap and bottled beers to meet beer lovers wishies. Also famous Bitterballs snacks are available and other food as well. Bartender are very friendly, and they make you feel happy.

    Add to your visit list, fantastic!
    A really cosy cafe, serving a range of local classics, with something on the menu to suit most people. The staff are attentive, friendly and always keen to accommodate your needs. We liked it so much the first time, we came back 2days later. It's busy, but busy means good, so it's worth lingering at the bar with a coffee whilst you wait for a table to become available. Really impressed, a must visit!

    Absolutely delightful pub..wonderful staff and food and drink
    Definitely go to the right hand side..the old 'brown' side. You might have to stand for a bit but all the Dutch people are in here and its so wonderful and welcoming. The fact we were English made them even more welcoming and helpful. Nice range of beers and wines and the food was very good too. They even pointed out to us as soon as seats became free. If you want a really great 'brown' pub..then this place couldn't be more perfect.

Well, to start with, it took 20 minutes before anyone bothered to come by the table and take an order. Then, we were joined by a mouse, which panicked the bar tender. And finally, they will not serve tap water so we paid $4.50 a bottle for less than 250 ml.

Vile service from racist waiting staff. Do not visit here if you are english and have children with you. They took one look at us and made an assumption before even serving us needless to say we didn’t stay. My 18 month old accidentally picked one of the tulips from the front of the restaurant oh my goodness i have never in my life been spoken to like that they definitely have a thing against english customers avoid avoid avoid

Dark and quiet, a place to rest and recuperate with a hot chocolate or some fine, heady Brouwerij. It's easy to feel the history that exudes from all around. The magisterial mural upon entry and the timeless decorations behind the bar all add to the ethereal sense of times gone by.

I only drop in here occasionally when in Amsterdam and always wonder why I don't more often. Yes it is definitely for locals however I have always been made welcome. Even yesterday they engaged in conversation when they didn't need to and it wasn't forced - just a friendly team
I will definitely get here more often

The best service and the best beer we had in Amsterdam.
Would highly recommend if you are looking for a drink and want a fun lively vibe.
It was busy all day on the weekend when we walked by and still packed on Monday night.

Will come back.

Absolutely appalling customer service. Total disregard to myself and partner - more interested in their friends and regulars outside....far, far better places surrounding this establishment to drink and enjoy. Avoid AT ALL COSTS.

We stopped in to see this historic old bar during a hot afternoon when nobody else was in there. Drank a beer and took some photos of the cool old barrels behind the bar. We didn't have any of the service problems that others have mentioned (and that we definitely experienced elsewhere in Amsterdam) - could be because we were there during a very slow time of the day.

Very curious place with a right side which is spit-and sawdust and a left which is much plusher. Gets very popular with groups standing outside of an evening. Best appreciated during early evening or afternoon tbh.
