Visited here & although we had a good time the staff were a little too cool for school. Befriended a little cat who looked like he spent too many hours & days inhaling the smoke. Products & drinks on offer were good standard

Never have I, or any of my friends, experienced such despicable customer service - anywhere around the world. The bar staff in Dampkring have the worst attitude that any of us have ever come across. They are persistently moody, rude, and lazy. When my friends and I were talking they stared at us continuously, talking about us insulting us based... More

We came here two years ago and loved it. This time round, not impressed. Bought a smoke then sat at the bar to order some drinks and were flatly ignored for a solid five minutes, walked out and went elsewhere. It's a lovely coffee shop but not much good if you actually wish to sit and enjoy it properly.

My favorite in Amsterdam. Great atmosphere, excellent coffee, good knowledgable service, cute resident cat you can pet while there and a very good selection of weed. What more could you ask for?

This place used to be my favourite coffee shop in Amsterdam as it had a great chilled out friendly vibe. THIS IS NO LONGER THE CASE. No idea what has happened to this place but we came in here to grab a quick drink and a little snack and chill, whilst doing so we stopped to have a look at... More

Good place to have a drink and enjoy the smell of cannabis being smoked (since I don't smoke myself). They have probably the highest cat in the world since he is inside the coffeeshop all day. The bartenders could be a bit more friendly.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
