“Lovely square but very busy!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Nice square but during busy times you can not move for tourists. Restaurants and bars in this area seem to be dead expensive as well

“Nice but nothing special”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

I have to admit that there are many more nicer squears in Amsterdam and there is - as I saw it - nothing so special at Dam squear. I mean don t get me wrong it is central square and it is nice but that is all.

“There are prettier squares in Amsterdam...”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

It's busy, noisy, full of tourists, and centrally located. If that's your kind of thing, you'll like it. But there are plenty of beautiful squares around Amsterdam that will give you a quieter and prettier experience overall.
