    Visiting my daughter who is at Amsterdam University. My friend and I went for a stroll to The Leidseplein. Got a seat under the busy bar area, given a blanket to keep us warm and had the best gin and tonic ever. Great place to watch the world go by even in bad weather.

    We have enjoyed this familiar and friendly pub for 3 stays in Amsterdam now and it never loses its simple charm. Set in the heart of Amsterdam, the loud, annoying tourist traps and you feel quite content. There's always a football match on and there's always a friendly bar man/woman ready to give recommendations. Try the Murphy Irish Red, it's delicious.

    We stayed at the Hampshire Hotel Theatre District which is situated just over the road from here. It has all the night life here with lots of mini strips for mid range dining, hospitality and professionalism isn't high here but nonetheless it does the job.

    It never appeared to be a safe place to be. Dark and noisy...treacherous street crossings...the cyclists will try to run you over, if they don't succeed, there is always the trams

    Good street cafes and restaurants everywhere so plenty to choose from . Busy little square - great to sit and watch the world go by.

    Seriously my favourite part of Amsterdam. Everything is so busy but so beautiful. I enjoyed the busy streets and sitting outside people watching. There are a fair few amazing coffee shops in this area too which was great. My hotel was only a 10 min walk away but it only felt like 2. A lot of food places to visit, but not really a shopping place.

    If travelling via tram worthwhile getting off & having a wander around. Plenty of bars & restaurants covering all price ranges.

    We stoped at Leidseplein after we visited the Rijksmuseum just around the corner. This where you drink coffee or beer and take in the rhythm of Amsterdam. Bulldogs on the plein is the perfect place if you want to try a true Amsterdam tradition, smoking some "parrot salad". They also have very nice tasting chocolate space cakes.

    Excellent bars and restuarants Especially Mayas Steakhouse. Leidse Square is always different it will be depend on what time of year you visit. In winter months it has an Ice Rink there.

    A lovely square with everything on offer and perfect to lead on to the shopping streets. Always plenty of things going on to entertain

    Leiden Square mainly houses bars and restaurant of partially mediocre repute. Interesting for youngsters, including a sometimes grimm atmosphere and the types of restaurants that deliver poor quality for the buck. Reason to visit? the Apple Store, Paradiso (pop music live performances), Hotel Americain, near the Rijksmuseum, .

    Very touristy but has a great vibe. This place comes to life at night 🌟Watch out for pick pockets though or distraction style pick pocketing.

    Really pretty place to walk along or cycle across! Rent a bike and cycle across here- you will enjoy it!

    One of the 4 social squares in Amsterdam. Leidseplein has about 50 venues to drink and eat. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, tea and endless alcohol. Great area to spend an afternoon or an evening. Just relax and go with the flow.

    If you want to see and be part of the Amsterdam Night Life, this is the place to be, lots of cafes, shops, bars and disco pubs around the area open full night with loud music inside is a great fun to be part of. Really amazing experience to be lived and remembered.

    Lovely area of Amsterdam, buzzing, vibrant, with plenty to do, just outside Centraal, but with not quite the madness, loads of nice restaurants on the side streets.

    Nice area to visit. Wen't here for 3 evenings during my stay. There was a great relaxing cafe I went to with my mates but it's since closed down, such a pity,
