Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Take elevator to the sixth floor and access cafe and overlook of the city. Childrens Library is very well designed.

    Huge arena, great for events however in a sense its 'too big' if not enough people attend. Prefer Ziggo Dome but still great place for events

    Yet another wonderful looking building along the beautifully completed Damrak. This main entry point in to the city has been so wonderfully restored. Looks so good.

    I attended two day conference in this venue. Very inspirational rooms, a bit of a labyrint, but nice. Remarkable works of art. Very helpful staff.

    NAP ( Het Normaal Amsterdams Peil) or AOD is the reference point according to which elevation is measured in the Netherlands. Well, it's actually a very interesting place to know about the water level meter in the Netherlands and also in Europe. There's enough information about the history of the NAP from the short videos, pictures and posters but it's still difficult to understand for someone like me. On the poster, the entrance fee is € 1.00 but sometimes it is free. The most interesting is seeing the relief on the wall before you go downstairs. As you know "Nederland" means Low Countries, you will see the relief shows you the image of amsterdam that was originally under the water level. Amsterdam was built on poles. The location of this visitor centre is in the town hall.

    The World Fashion Centre Amsterdam on Koningin Wilheminaplein is a commercial centre for importers/dealers in budget garments.Don't expect the glamourous name to be reflected in the quality of the items of clothing for sale here for low prices.
    Koningin Wilhelmina is represented by a large concrete sculpture in front of the centre.
    The area has a small public park at -Heemstedestraat Metro Stop- offering 2 English style flower- borders maintained by local residents.
    Recent building activities have made the area an upmarked residential area.

    To me it seems unfortunate that only two ceilings are available for viewing to the public, while the rest of this large house is private offices. Those two ceilings are extravagently painted and worth seeing if you are in the neighborhood anyway-- the Rembrandt House is just up the street--but I would not go out of my way to find it. A woman on the ground floor welcomed us and gave us 5 minutes in English about the history of the house and the meanings of the ceilings. The colors have remained remarkably brilliant now, over 300 years after they were painted. Our entire visit lasted less than 15 minutes.

    I travelled all the way from Belgium to Amsterdam for the Stephan Bodzin gig on 7th November 2021 and overall it was a nice 1st-time experience visiting 'The Marktkantine'.
    This is a well-managed club, there was strict Covid Pass control at the entrance (which I highly support) and a strip search.
    The atmosphere in the club felt very safe due to all the applied safety measures.
    I especially liked the different levels in the venue so you can either enjoy a gig closely from the pit or have a more relaxed stance on the balcony.
    Impressive sound system and sparse but efficiently used light gear.
    The only downside of the Stephan Bodzin gig was the overwhelming amount of decibels produced and noticeable distortion at times.
    i would certainly not recommend standing in the pit or even further back without ear protection. Aside from this small negative, a highly recommendable club.

    Pink point is a wonderful place to shop anything pride related, cold drinks and more! The staff is friendly and helpful (pink point also is a LGBTQ+ information point in amsterdam). It’s a place loaded with queer history, right next to the homomonument of amsterdam. You can buy your pride flags, pins, and also postcards :) 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

    When I travel, I'm always looking for an interesting store to pickup gifts or a souvenir for myself. I look for good design. I came across several stores while in Amsterdam, including this one in Central Station. Everything about this store was well designed, including the window displays which caught my attention and the products for sale. While some of the items focused on the city of Amsterdam, others were made by local craftsman. I was able to find a few things that really appealed to me both as gifts and souvenirs. The staff is friendly and helpful. The store is located towards the back of the station, going towards the river.

    Although quite distant from the ciy centre, it is certainly worth visiting this cultural centre at Zeeburgerdijk 21, Amsterdam, to view the exceptionally well-curated, informative and thought-provoking exhibitions about the history, heritage and political activism of African and Caribbean diaspora communities in the Netherlands. At the time of my visit in July 2022 there were two outstanding multimedia presentations: (1) "Facing Blackness" - a poignant collection of historical artefacts, archival documents and excerpts of contemporary film footage that combined to visualise and contextualise anti-racist resistance, social justice activism and decolonial discourse spanning many decades; (2) "100 Years of Surinamese in the Netherlands" - a chronological display of black and white photo portraits, seminal historical texts, group imagery and documentary films about the lived experiences and migration narratives of Surinamese people, before and after independence. For non-Dutch-speaking visitors, translated interpretation literature (in English) was accessible via QR codes at the entrance to each gallery. Additionally, the very helpful staff members provided further details about the featured content. Given the complex subject matter, considerable care and sensitivity was applied to make the visual and textual narratives accessible and insightful whilst also not hiding the challenges encountered in the ongoing struggles for racial justice.
