This building is gorgeous - especially at Christmas with a Christmas tree suspended from the ceiling and carol singers on the second floor. Not many shops in the centre but still worth a visit

It’s just as I said, another shopping centre, with plenty of shops, great Xmas displays, beautiful old building but you can see this in any store worldwide. Wouldn’t come to Amsterdam just for this.

Beautifully decorated this time of year with a superb massive hanging tree that is a must-see ! Not so sure about the retail experience as the top floor is now closed off as is half of the first floor. Is this a sign of trouble...More

To be honest, the outside of this building was worthwhile to check out inside. Overall, it was disappointing, there were shops but they were outdated. Rather than shopping, I suggested that you take some photos and left.

We wanted a shopping day during our trip to Amsterdam. Unfortunately we were a bit let down by the poor selection of shops within this beautiful building.

Totally underwhelming- believing there to be a shopping center- only to find less than dozen shops. And many vacant shops spaces for lease - not impressed!!

I don’t know what we expecting, but the rather sad shopping precinct full of over expensive shops with few people in them was not it. It has a certain architectural interest - but if you are after a pleasant shopping experience go to Nine Streets...More
