We wanted a shopping day during our trip to Amsterdam. Unfortunately we were a bit let down by the poor selection of shops within this beautiful building.

Totally underwhelming- believing there to be a shopping center- only to find less than dozen shops. And many vacant shops spaces for lease - not impressed!!

I don’t know what we expecting, but the rather sad shopping precinct full of over expensive shops with few people in them was not it. It has a certain architectural interest - but if you are after a pleasant shopping experience go to Nine Streets...More

Magnificent building inside and out. As a pricey shopping mall , it does not stand up to ratings its given.

.. and I think that is the best part of this building. The outside is visually attractive and the interior is also quite stunning and airy. Three floors of mainly designer shops at least kept he place afloat.

Visually, I love this building. Architecture is amazing. However, the store options mediocre. This is my 11th visit to Amsterdam and I only go to the plaza for one reason, the souvenir shop on the ground floor. I have been getting my souvenirs there for...More

Step in for a few minutes to admire the extraordinary architecture, really splendid atrium. But otherwise just an international shopping mall with no special stores.

Nice looking historic building. The so-called shopping centre inside is small, has few shops, lots of unoccupied spaces, upper floor is closed for renovation. The staff in some of the shops does not even speak Dutch which shows that it caters to tourists.

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
