Fantastic range of books covering all topics, good prices too. Staff really nice and helpful. A vast collection of books that I have not seen in the UK, so obviously a place I spent quite a lot of money.

If you want to pay by card, you need to buy for more than 15 EUR. Otherwise, cash only. So were we told by an unkind and unapologetic sales woman. As we were spending our last hours in Amsterdam we did not want to take...More

There is a great collection of english books. Even if you don't need to buy anything it is worth to visit. But be careful you will probably spend a lot of money there :)

Always drop by whenever I am in Amsterdam. Cheap books. Might not be a bit disorganized, some says the staff are not friendly but I couldn't care less. I am there for those cheap (but good) books

I loved that you can get very good books for so low prices, and I would definitely go back, but the books could be better organized in case you are looking for a specific title or author

Really a place for one who likes to read. Most of the books are from €5,00 to € 10,00, except for special ones

This book store is great if you're looking for English language books. They have a decent selection of a variety of books, but not as big as another English language book store down the street and around the corner. It's a small store, but prices...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of

Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
