From Central Station walk straight up Damrak and continue past Tussaud's onto Rokin to reach Hajenius. If cigars or a pipe are your poison, this is the place. I made a bee line for it having first visited last year. Replenished my stock of excellent Hajenius cigars. It's an opulent place staffed by knowledgeable and attentive sales-people. You can try...

The staff are very friendly and know their cigars. The cigars were well stored and humidified. A wide selection of very nice cigars are available in the walk in humidor. The smoking lounge... More

Been visiting this place for many years now. Either with colleagues, friends or family. Besides the fact that the interior is spot on, the staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Whatever cigar you prefer, there will always be something to your liking in the multi-room walk-in humidor!

Stumbled upon this place by accident, what a wonderful cigar shop. A huge selection in a shop that has been there for over 100 years. They have a large selection of sticks from around the world and a huge walk in humidor. Although I prefer Cubans, the proprietor suggested a box of nice Dutch cigars, which I'm taking back home...

I don't smoke and never smoke before but I really enjoyed being in this shop, chic and classy. It's well done symmetrical display shop in a beautiful Art Nouveau building. The middle part you can learn about Tobacco. At the back side, there is a big humidor, used by well-known people of the Netherlands who come once in a while... More

It is some sort of a temple for cigar bufff. Lounge is open till 18:00, a nice place for a cigar & coffee break. The collection of the cigars are mixed with Cubans and non-Cubans, you may able to buy your own blend for pipe. They have a special area for tobacco blending. Been there several times and always enjoy... More

I stopped in here to buy cigars for my son, who is an occasional cigar smoker. As I know nothing about cigars, I asked the staff for advice on what to buy. They were very friendly and helpful, and packaged my purchase carefully for my trip home. My son liked the variety that was recommended and was happy with what... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
