Phenomenal transport and always on time, good food around and next to trams. Only problems were that the staff were a bit rude, we were in the metro underneath and one member of staff argued that we could not load one hour onto our ov...More
City centre main station and the arrival point for many of the main tourist sites and activities. Good access to other local forms of transport. A large, busy station - but well laid out and with good English language signage. My only grumble - most...More
The central station is well worth a visit. The supply of shops and catering is enormous. On the side of the IJ it is good to stay while enjoying a drink and a snack. Pay attention also to the construction and style of the station,...More
Everyone is very helpful but this area is busy busy busy. We didn’t know that we had to pay to use the bathroom when we go there and we had no euros that were small enough. We had to buy something at McDonalds so we...More
The station is open at both ends and while the weather was pleasant when we were there I can see that it would be very cold in the winter months. There are very few places to sit and those few places are very uncomfortable. You...More
Once known the layout is basically OK but there are no signs for Eurostar? Also one has to scan the ticket to get to coffee shops/luggage storage etc and we ran out of scans and had to be let in by the staff?
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

I travelled using Thalys from Ams to Paris. If I’m not mistaken the platform is 2b, it was pretty easy to find and you can ask the train / station staff. They are very helpful and can speak English. It will stop in Bruxelles-Midi and continue to Paris.
Remember to buy the ticket early / beforehand online as the ticket price can be very expensive. Second class coach works well for me, it’s a very nice train with USB port for you to charge your phone and Wi-fi.
Don’t worry if you miss your train in Amsterdam Central (which I did), I quickly took the intercity train to Schipol airport (using the same Thalys ticket) and took Thalys from there.
