Shopping in Amsterdam

May, 1st 2018

We are two receptionists from the Ammonite Hotel Amsterdam and we went shopping for new shoes last week. Because we stand at the reception all day long, we want to find beautiful shoes that are also comfortable to wear. And where better to shop for shoes than in the centre of Amsterdam!

From our hotel it is only a short tram ride to Central Station in Amsterdam. Such a beautiful building! Located in the station you find the IJ-passage which is a shopping centre. You will find a selection of the well-known stores, such as Victoria Secret, Mango, Kiko, Rituals etc. The best part of this shopping centre is that you can shop here from 05:30 to 01:00 !!

After this we went outside and walked to the Nieuwendijk for a famous Van der Linde ice cream! It doesn’t matter what the weather is like, people are always queuing for these ice creams. While enjoying our ice creams, we started walking towards Dam Square. When you go shopping you cannot skip the Beijenkorf. We had already seen some good shoes, but wanted to keep looking around. We are women and we love to shop!

After the Bijenkorf we went to Magna Plaza. Another beautiful building! And also some great shoes. After we both found what we were looking for, we went back to Central Station. We went back to our Ammonite Hotel because we were meeting our colleagues in Club Ammonite to try some nice cocktails. The restaurant made delicious snacks, including the famous Dutch bitterbal, which they made fresh. It was delicious! All in all a successful day and we will be very comfortable at the reception in our beautiful new shoes.
