  • Great building on the van dam square, nice to see from outside and is luxury department store. Nice to stroll and has a long history. Tram station right next to it and central station a few minutes...  more »
  • Classic, old, big department store. Large selection of international luxury brands. Old fashioned feeling but modern brands. Excellent service. Also a nice place to have lunch at the restaurant.  more »
  • Great shopping place on dam square in the center. Great looking building from outside with a long history and great shopping inside.  more »
  • Beautiful shopping centre, Beautiful set up, great selection of shops. It gets a bit crowded and you have to pay for the restrooms (plus there isn’t much reason to spend your time out in the shopping 🛍 street when you could be in the gallery) but it is very nice if you feel like you have the time or only have enough time to walk through.I purchased a bag and a wallet at the Fossil store where there was a sale and an extra 20% off sale items - very happy!
  • Impressive shopping location but to posh for my taste. Needs more soul and warmth. Service people were friendly and helpful a the way.
  • I had very good experience in this store, i was looking to buy only a T shirt and my sale attendant was lovely Asian girl and she helped me to find a perfect T shirt since the options in my size was limited, she also recommended me to the right place in Amsterdam to find the other stuff in was looking for, they have very big selection but you have to check often as they will run out of popular sizes fast.
  • It has every makeup counter you can think of, it has all the designer brands regarding clothing/bags/jewellery. It also has a nice restaurant at the top floor where you can choose from different cuisines.
  • The food taste really good but I don't expect some "stupid" service from their chefs or staff? I asked them if they treated me like that because I'm an Asian? Then the staff started talking Dutch which I don't understand. The cashier however provide good service as they explained their promotions etc without being racist as the other staffs at the food place.
