With over 200 beers on the list, very old dwelling and a feeling of a place for the locals. Definitely recommend stopping for a beer!

I usually don't leave reviews on trip advisor. This is my first one I think, but I feel I need to warn everyone to stay away from this place, there are signs much better places to go on Amsterdam. I went on January with some friends, following the recommendations on trip advisor (so many times I've discovered great places based... More

This place is tiny, even by European standards. Twice I went, loud Brits were, as with the rest of Amsterdam, omnipresent. But unlike other places I passed, there was no pretension, just great beer. I could have drank any of the house Gollem selections on draught all night. Being solo, I liked that it was cozy. I liked that they... More

With over 200 types of beer available, this is a great little hidden gem of Amsterdam! Despite being down a little side street, on the two occasions I went it was busy (mainly due to the fact it is tiny and could only really hold about 50 ppl)

Never have I seen so many choices of beer in one establishment. Popped in for a quick beer to meet our friends to start celebrating my husbands birthday. Great service. Clean fresh decor. Had a nice time here and would go back

Biercafé Gollem is an unmissable Biercafé in Amsterdam that stocks a huge range of beers and is a must go destination for the serious (and not so serious beer drinker).Opened in 1974 this was in many people's opinion the first specialist Biercafé in Amsterdam and remains a must do Biercafé when visiting this beautiful city.A very small Biercafé as you...

This place isn't big, but the choice of beers you can have is! Great for pre or post meal drinks. The staff are able to provide recommendations and something special. The taps are set up with an interesting selection also, but if that doesn't have what you're looking for their range of bottles is vast. Recommended for beer geeks and... More

Been heer many times. The pub is great. Lots (and lots) of good beers and a staff which can really recommend the best beer for your preferences. `its not a place that tries to be hip and happening but its "just" an easygoing, nice pub. That's what makes it great.

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.
