Van Hallstraat, Amsterdam, Noord-Holland 1051

Hello!

Am thinking of staying in an apartment at the above address. Does anyone know if this is in walking distance of the city centre?

Thanks!

This is trust issue is so important. For instance a map won't tell you that gangsters had a shoot-out in the streets on Van Hallstraat just a few weeks ago.

Hamraj, I lived just off Van Hallstraat for 3 years and then again for 5 years between 1998 and 2008, and still visit that neighborhood and the park regularly. The neighborhood was already turning from quite bad (before 1998) to very yuppie upscale back in those years. Nowadays apartments of average or larger size there are only affordable for the wealthy.

This shoot-out is a very rare incident. Shoot-outs even happen in the poshest of neigborhoods (Zuid).

Van Hallstraat is fine, and close to the center. It's a residential neighborhood with families and students and elderly people and all that, and loads of nice cafes and restaurants. And in general a very mellow safe atmosphere.

But you could stay more central. On the other hand, Westerpark is also near, a very nice park with a cinema and bars and daytime cafes. Van Hallstraat itself also has a cute one screen arthouse cinema (Filmhuis Cavia).

@mryevad, I still visit that neighborhood at least once a month, be it for sports, friends or a festival nearby. It is still the same as described in reply #6.
