If you are looking for those unusual shops and independent designers you'll love "De 9 straatjes", de "Haarlemmerstraat" and "Utrechtsestraat". Not done shopping yet or need to see the Dior shop in town and the other big brands? Head for the "PC Hooftstraat.
In Amsterdam West you'll find new start-ups and trendy shops. Right in the middle of this 19th century district you'll find "De Hallen Amsterdam", a centre for media, culture, fashion, food and crafts. The building in which the first electric trams in Amsterdam were once serviced has been granted a new life. In the former tram depot, an official monument built between 1902 and 1928, you now find De Hallen Amsterdam.

The best B&B in Amsterdam!
“The couple who run this B&B are by a long stretch the two most hospitable, friendly and just all round lovely people we have had the pleasure of staying with on our 10 week trip through Europe.
The best hosts ever
"Rhalf and Kitty were amazing - when we first arrived, Rhalf gave us a very detailed overview of a ton of things to do in AMS, along with a map marking the spots. The room was amazing and sparkling clean, with a beautiful view of the canal.
The place is super close to tram, making it very easy to get around the city. The breakfast itself was a delicious traditional Dutch breakfast, with more food than you can eat. Rhalf and Kitty are the best hosts ever - you're missing out if you don't stay here."
