“Great building with small modern art collection also!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Great building with nice staff. Security let us leave our luggage with them as we had just got to town and it was to early to check in at our hotel. The library is only 4 blocks east to Central Train Station. A small collection of modern art sculptures is a great addition to a great building. It also has a very nice restaurant on the top floor so you can get a bite to eat and look out over the city.

“Big Library right on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Big library, plenty of places to read and chill, et cetera. There is even a piano to play on the ground floor. And a restaurant at the very top of the library. Only drawback is having to pay to use the toilet.

“yes the library”

The interior is just plain a knockout. Someone even pl aged the piano while we were there. This is what a library should be.

“Library with a view and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Nice view of Amsterdam and the cafeteria on the 7th floor had a nice selection. We had fish cooked to order, fresh salad; made to order pizza is also available along with entrees and side dishes. Reasonably priced.
