This place is like a step back into the old days of travel. The place does feel very grand although I didn't think the prices were grand which is great. They have a parrot which is not something you usually see in a bar! I...More

Three of us enjoyed a good three-course meal in the Grand Café 1st Klas. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced for Amsterdam. The building is magnificent and beautifully decorated. It is worth a visit just to see the porcelain in the toilets! However,...More

I come here because it's living history. It's really a beautiful place. Having said that, the service is usually slow and quite unfriendly. It's been like that since I can remember. I still go there, because of its convenient location (the train station, platform 2)...More

Whenever we go to Amsterdam - whether for a day or longer, this is always our first stop on getting off the train from Schipol. The interior is lovely - I believe Art Deco, and the food and service is excellent. I am particularly fond...More

Stumbled across this beautiful former 1st class waiting room (hence the name) which is now a restaurant, resplendent with palms, a cockatiel at the bar, waiters in long aprons, and a wonderful atmosphere, high ceilings, wood-panelled walls and intricate paintings of wildlife. After a couple...More

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

There is a new automatic locker system near the right entrance door which seems complicated, especially at busy times. You need a ticket or pass to gain entrance. Put your stuff in an open locker (showing green) then shut... More
