    Other areas you may want to consider staying at

    Museum Quarter

    A beautifull and quiet area in town, close to the 'Quartier Latin' of Amsterdam ("de Pijp"); average about 10 minutes away from the Leidseplein and Kerkstraat area.

    Vondelpark Quarter

    The most beautifull buildings in town can be found here; lovely and quiet. Please be aware that the Vondelpark is quite big; if you stay at the down-town city side, you may be a few minutes walk away from the Leidseplein and Kerkstraat area.
