  • A 3 storied book store in the city centre of Amsterdam.. it has a wide range of books in all the different genres. One of the best book stores to browse through and buy books in Amsterdam. On the topmost floor, they also have a small cafe where you can read while sipping on your coffee.
  • Great store, lots of choices. I really appreciate the student discount. The people working here are friendly and helpful
