Bike rental

The five of us got our bikes from here. The gentleman was friendly. The rental was simple yet somewhat expensive but it was worth it as exploring Amsterdam on a bike is worthwhile.

We picked up our bikes from the Vondelpark shop. We took the bikes to the park for an hour and there were no issues whatsoever. All of the bikes listed were available and at a very affordable price. I wish i had asked the name of the lady working on the bikes, she was incredibly helpful and put a smile... More

We were in Amsterdam for only about half a day, staying at an airport hotel. We decided to drive downtown and check the area out. We soon discovered driving was not the best option. There were people riding bikes everywhere, there were many more bikes than cars. Almost to the point of being dangerous. We found a parking garage near... More

As a visitor I want to be treated straight and am sick of extra unexpected mark ups. This happened twice on my recent visit with MacBikes.Firstly busy Cental Station shop has a good stock but not one of the cheaper no-gear bicycle, presumably in the expectation that we will bite the bullet for the 50% more expensive one with gears....

Hello George, Sorry to hear you had a bad experience at one of our shops. It's true that we are limited to handbrake bikes at our location Central Station North. The reason for this is that the handbrakes are our most requested bikes. Our shop there is unfortunately too small to stock the cheaper pedal brakes, as we already have... More

Such a great way to see Amsterdam. Me and my partner hired a Tandem bike...1 hour for €10. The price was perfect. You have to leave a €50 deposit and a piece of photo identification. The sales man was very helpful showing us to use the bike and showed us how to use the bike locks etc. Definitely give it... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
