Damrak, Amsterdam

(2.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Hunt for souvenirs at Damrak, an avenue filled with small shops and historical buildings. Many people also come here at night for the large range of choices in restaurants and bars, but if you don't enjoy the party scene, you may want to choose a different location. Currency exchanges are also plentiful here, in case you need to change some bills. A partially filled canal runs along the walkway and serves as a busy route for canal boats. Get here easily via the GVB trams. Use our Amsterdam travel itinerary planner to add Damrak and other attractions to your Amsterdam vacation plans.

  • Wide Avenue in front of the Central Station, coming out of the station you will to her to catch the bus or trans. impossible not to identify her.

  • The hotel is centrally located and close to all the activities and attractions. Not the most freshest and staff not very interested in his guests but all in all, it was ok. Are you picky with purity and freshness, this is not the ideal. If you're looking for somewhere to sleep and only think it is more important to you with other things then this is the perfect choice for both the wallet and the value for money you get compared to other more expensive options. That said, it is a perfect location. Take the train from the airport you reach to Amsterdam in about 20 min. Once you go to the hotel in about 8 minutes. It is also possible to red districts of about 10-15 min walk where there is a museum where one can see two worlds meet. Astounded to find schools in this district. Worth a visit! Amsterdam is a class of its own!

  • From Central Station ontkomje almost not on the Damrak if access to the Dam and the rest can Amsterdam. It is always crowded with tourists and forgiving with souvenirs shops what hospitality and what museums. Trams run in the Middle, so watch out. Not really a place to relax.

  • This Albert Heijn To Go is a smaller and expensiver sort of Albert Heijn. This is very logic because of the central location it makes it much more expensive. The store offers everything a small supermarket offers fresh vegetables and fruits, cheese, fresh orange juice and other groceries. If you are in the centrum this will be the prices.
  • Super expensive, almost 20% more than in other AH shops. But if you're in a hurry that may do the trick.
  • Too expensive. Bought a bottle of water for 2,50€.
  • OK Albert Heijn. The staff doesn't care about you, but the self-scan counters are rather convenient.
  • Good little AH to Go! Saves you queuing up in the huge AH
