There’s an urban feel in this hugely multi-cultural area in the streets between Overtoom and Kinkerstraat. With numerous ethnic shops and restaurants, the area is a smorgasbord for food lovers. Ten Katemarkt street market is in the centre of the district, known for its Turkish food vendors selling delicious treats.

As the Netherlands' culture-packed capital, Amsterdam has always been a hotspot for holidaymakers. This enticing slice of North Holland is renowned for its iconic criss-crossing canals, distinctive narrow houses and an eclectic range of museums including the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum.
Main public transport options include buses and trams, but bicycles rule when it comes to getting around. With around 400 km of bike paths and almost 8,000 parking spaces, exploring on two wheels makes taking in the main sights a breeze.
The city's medieval centre, known as Centrum, showcases many points of interest synonymous with Amsterdam tourism, including canals, traditional architecture and the famous nightlife of the Red Light District. If you're visiting in tulip season, a stopover at nearby Keukenhof's botanical garden in mid-April provides sweeping views of multicoloured flowers in bloom.
A variety of accommodation can be found all over the city, from high-end hotels to cosy hostels and homestays. The main airport of Schiphol is 15 km southwest of the city and offers regular train services between the main terminal and city centre.

It was a perfect mini break, which was a little bit too short. Next time I'll book a room in front of the building. Due to Covid 19 I could not eat in the hotel. Everywhere in the street you can take away food.
Great and funny place. 2-3full days are enought but 1-2days not enought. The nights are crazy, what must try and must be lost in the crowd. We were in 5-6 different restaurants (burgers bar, elegant hotel restaurant, argentin steak house etc) and all was nice and all food was good or great! They are friendly and know what the tourist needs!
I recomand restaurant pasta posta, walking distance from hotel Savoy. The old church is stunning. Centraal train station has also some beautifull architecture, from inside it looks more like a chateau rather than a train station. I realy enjoyed the visit. The city has got a very unique vibe.
Night life is very varied and lots to do, just depends what you are wanting to do. Dungeon was fantastic as was the architecture and shopping areas. The boat cruise for €15 euros was fantastic at night and seeing the city lit up at night was great! Moulin Rouge very disappointing Black Tiger Bar was great in the red light district. Escape bar was disapointing as they would not let us in without ID which was a 20min walk away back in our rooms. The only place to ask us. It was over priced entry fee anyway. Fantastic cooked breakfast at teddys and our hotel overall was a good place to stay. There was a Chinese where we all said we had the best Chinese food ever but I was too drunk to remember the name of it haha!
I stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel was comfortable, a great base for what we needed. Right in the centre so everything was easily accessible. Tram lines just outside the hotel. Room was decent sized, we stayed in a standard room the bathroom had neon lights which we loved. Although the door of the wardrobe fell off it didn't hinder our stay. Had a balcony with a view of the street which was great to chill and have a look at the hustle and bustle of the city from. All in all we had a great stay and would recommend this hotel to a friend.
One of my favourite cities to enjoy by walking around and enjoying a coffee or beer on a patio by the canal. Anne Frank's House is very touching. A fun accommodation option is to sleep on one of the many boat hotels (docked in front of NEMO, about 15 min walk from Central Station). Very touristy in the summer - a nice spring or autumn city break.
