This area was recommended by a friend who lives in Amsterdam and he was right - it's a pretty place right in the heart of everything and easy to access most places by foot. Great atmosphere, beautiful views.

Not sure why this is number 4 on list of things to do, this is a neighbourhood like many in the area with no attractions just peoples houses. Don’t get me wrong it’s great to see the houses so close together and they are beautiful,...More

If you want to feel the real Amsterdam, go there! Our hotel was in the south of the city but it's not complicated to get there (city center). How beautiful this is! There we fell in love with the city. Recommended!

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

Yes this section of the city is more quiet. It is close to several attractions. But you can also catch the tram which can take you to many parts of the city. Also close enough to Centraal Station where you can catch train to... More
