No matter what you’re looking for, Amsterdam is a shopper’s paradise. For those with more discerning taste, the city has an excellent selection of luxury shops, ranging from designer fashion houses to unique boutiques and custom-made items you won’t find anywhere else.
Exclusive shops in Amsterdam:
Part of the charm of the exclusive shopping experience in Amsterdam is the lovely neighbourhoods you’ll discover along the way. While a couple of high-end department stores are right in the centre, you’ll often need to wander past the tourist hotspots to discover amazing shops tucked in between more residential streets.
Named for the 17th-century poet and playwright Pieter Cornelisz Hooft, the P.C. Hooftstraat has been an exclusive shopping destination since the 1970s. Located near the Museumplein, this street is your first stop for big-name designers like Hugo Boss, D&G, MaxMara, Ralph Lauren, Hermes, Gucci and more. When it’s time for a break, grab a coffee and indulge in some great people-watching.
In the heart of the city centre, the Utrechtsestraat starts at the Rembrandtplein and crosses Amsterdam’s most famous canals. The street has a mix of shops, but gets more luxurious with each passing year. For example, the Netherlands’ first Marc by Marc Jacobs store will open at Utrechtsestraat 120 sometime in the near future. You’ll find designer fashion at Centre Neuf and Angel Basics, while Zwartjes van 1883 sells well-made leather shoes that will last a lifetime. For contemporary interior design, be sure to pay a visit to Mobilia.
The best way to get to the apartment:
From Schiphol Airport to Central Station by train:
- Once you have cleared customs and still in the airport, follow the signs to the train station, which is located underground of a big hall with high ceiling. Don’t forget first to buy the train tickets (the machines are yellow and next to the escalators – ask help if you need any assistance);
- From this hall, go down the escalators to the railway, but first find out on the boards above the escalators which train will take you to Central Station (Amsterdam Central or Amsterdam CS). The trip will take about 15 minutes if you take the fast train.
Direct from Schiphol Airport by taxi (the best way to start):
- Don’t take any taxi offered inside the airport hall. You can take a taxi directly in front of the main exit of the airport (TCA TAXI)

The appartment is conform the description, well heated, and very comfy. We recommend the place, for sure.
The apartment is very well located in a great part of Amsterdam. The living room looks out at a canal and we could see life on the canal which was great. Herbert is a great host and met us and showed us around the apartment which had everything we needed. Thanks For a great stay.
Очень гостеприимный хозяин, рассказал все что требуется о квартире и о городе, дал много полезных советов. Квартира очень чистая и уютная и находится в 10-15 минутах пешком от главной площади города. Все очень понравилось, спасибо Herbert! :)
Host could not have been more accommodating - met us very early on arrival and was available throughout our stay. Apartment is great value and we loved having a bath tub at the end of a day in Amsterdam. Jordaannis a great area
We really enjoyed our stay at Carlos and Herbert's flat.
