“Best Pub in Amsterdam”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

If visiting Amsterdam a few beers in the Old sailor is a must. It has a very friendly atmosphere and by Amsterdam standards the drinks aren't too expensive either. Also, it's situated right in the middle of the very lively 'red light' area so great for people who like the hustlers or smoking dope or both! Or for people like me who just like to soak up being in real Amsterdam or as it's called in Dutch dialect 'Mokum'. Have fun. Proost!

“Great pub in the red light district”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is a great spot - the beer is good value and the atmosphere is great - the staff were super friendly and were great to offer advice and directions. It's also a fun spot to window watch which was a popular tourist pass time!!
