Hotspots location Amsterdam

We are in equal walking distance, about 10 minutes, from both Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein. The Rijksmuseum is also a ten-minute walk as is The Hermitage.

The main shopping streets of Kalverstraat and Leidesestraat, the flower market, the gay Reguliersdwarsstraat, and the 100-year-old Albert Cuyp market are also all within a comfortable 10 minutes walking distance.

We are on one of the main tram routes (16, 24) to Centraal Station for trains to Schiphol airport and elsewhere. We are also close to tram 4, which takes you to the main exhibition centre, the RAI.

The theatres Carré, DeLaMar, Stadsschouwburg, and Boom Chicago are all close by and the Concertgebouw, one of the finest concert halls in the world is a 15 to 20 minute walk or a short tram ride. The Opera House is also within 20 minutes distance.

Restaurants

Just a few doors away in Noorderstraat, we have both a high end European style restaurant, Fyra, and a local steak house, Piet de Leeuw (in business for over 60 years). Around the corner are an Italian delicatessen, and a Mediterranean style restaurant, Panini. Over the bridge on Prinsengracht is a Bagels coffee café, Village Bagels, and next door another local restaurant, De Fles.
All within a couple of minutes walk.

We can highly recommend Steakhouse Piet de Leeuw, Panini, Village Bagels, and De Fles.

We also provide more restaurant tips in both the local area and other areas of Amsterdam for our guests.

Also just around the corner is one of Amsterdam’s local institutions, Patisserie Holtkamp, one of the finest cake shops in The Netherlands. They make delicious biscuits, and meringues as well as delicious cakes.

Culture

We are situated in a unique location for access to all forms of culture – museums, theatres, concert and opera venues, nightlife, comedy venues, and markets.

We are close to De Pijp, a local area of Amsterdam which has the famous Albert Cuyp market, the Heineken Brewery museum and many excellent local restaurants, bars and clubs based around small squares and local streets.

The antique shopping street Spiegelstraat with its shops and galleries is a 5 minute walk away as is the Utrechtsestraat with its upmarket small shops, the only remaining and excellent old fashioned record store for virtually all kinds of music, Concerto, and specialised bookstores, and great cafes and restaurants.

We highly recommend you take one of the many boat tours of Amsterdam if you haven’t done so before.++
