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.
A very lovely experience, mostly takes part in a dimly lit (but with plenty of light where needed, and some fun use of black lights) and quiet hall. Very interactive and interesting exhibits, everything is very well explained and easy to use. I'd suggest it's likely quite autism friendly with the calm and subtle atmosphere (at least when we went)....
Really good day out in Amsterdam. Loads of animals including elephants, giraffes, lions, gorillas and jaguars. Animals looked happy in good size enclosures. Walk through animal house allowed you to get up close to monkeys and lizards. We enjoyed lunch overlooking the giraffe + zebra enclosure. Easy to get to on public transport. Highly recommend as a day out for...
The best part of the museum was when we met a man explaining how Rembrandt worked, how he mixed his paints and how he ran his business. He was a very famous painter and made much of his money on commissions. But he over extended himself buying the house which now houses the museum and he lost the home due...
We had 90 mins till we had to be on the road, but are so glad we spent them in this museum! I love hearing history from the inside, being able to better understand another perspective of events. This museum is simple but impactful.

Had a very nice dinner overlooking the canals. Gorgeous building. Very limited menu where they mix seafood and meat. I would have preferred a menu that offered either/ or, since I do not like seafood. The service was friendly and helpful although when I asked for the house wine they served me a 13 euro per glass wine which is...
Absolutely loved Mook Pancakes!
We stopped in for breakfast - service was great, our waitress was lovely and helpful.
We both ordered the banana/strawberry/honey/granola pancakes and they were perfect.
Coffee was absolutely delicious. The watermelon drink was refreshing and a great start to the day.
Definitely worth a visit.
Great little restaurant near Oosterpark / Plantage with outdoor seating. We had the prix fixe 3 courses menu. Perfect place to end our trip. The service was very friendly and the food delicious. I highly recommend.
My husband and I went to this restaurant because we read the favorable comments on this web. Actually the reviews are very good, but this restaurant is all that has been written and much more. We feel in a family atmosphere, and the food is excellent and healthy, the staff is very, very kind and the owner is very professional,...
The hotel was amazing. Champagne at check in. Beautiful Royal Penthouse Suite overlooking the canal was fantastic. Centrally located to all the must see sights made this hotel exceptional. The suite was equipped with all the amenities. Staff was friendly and very helpful in recommending local restaurants.
This is beautiful hotel with large rooms, tall ceilings and dutch period furniture. The staff is all top notch. There are stunning views from the restaurant/bar terrace. They have a lovely river boat cruise that leave from the hotel.
Stayed here on a recent vacation trip. Very nice hotel, quite area, warm and friendly staff. Stayed in a club level room. One of the nicer Club offerings with some outstanding staff that went out of their way to make us comfortable.
The hotel is very clean and offer fantastic breakfast. The staff is friendly and trying to help as much as possible.
The bed is huge size, applicable to everyone.
It's may not located at the heart of the city, so some walking or public transport is needed, but it's not that big problem.
