Stayed in a hotel here, perfect for visiting all the museums and five minutes away from leiden square, with a lot of bars and restaurants around.

“Eh...not such a big deal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

Ya there's a bunch of designer shops on a one-block strip of city, but whatever, not that interesting. It's the one street in Amsterdam where you feel like you're in practically any other big city on their street with fancy shops. Although people watching here can be rather amusing.

“Best place to shop in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

What can I say, it's the best place to spend your money in Amsterdam.
Here you will find the the typical shops like Burberry, Chanel, Paul Smith, Cartier, ...

But it isn't like other luxury shopping streets such as Bond Street, 5th Avenue, Königsallee, ...
The P.C. Hoofstraat doesn't have the exclusive feel that you will find in other high end shopping streets.

“Spending is a way of life”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

There are shops, expensive shops. Seen one, seen them everywhere.It is not exceptional, it is a bit provincial compared to, say Paris. Maybe that is a certain charm in itself.
