Business Travel to Amsterdam: Around the Corner from the Krasnopolsky



Description:

Many business travelers to Amsterdam either end up staying the night, or attending a conference, at the Krasnopolsky hotel. Conveniently located in Amsterdam's Dam Square, the hotel is just minutes away from many important sites and excellent restaurants.
As soon as you exit the hotel you find yourself standing in Dam Square, the heart of the city and where it all began in the 1200s. From the front steps of the hotel you can see the National Monument, Royal Palace and the Nieuwkerk (New Church). The Bijenkorf, a large department store, is a great place to do some shopping in a short amount of time, while a visit to Madame Tussaud’s can provide some amusement after a dull day of meetings.
If you take the back exit of the Krasnopolsky, you will find yourself at the edge of Amsterdam's most famous neighborhood, the Red Light District. Don't miss the city's oldest church, the Oude Kerk, located at its heart.
For relatively fast service and excellent Thai food, visit the Bird, located in the nearby Chinatown. Alternately, Café De Waag is a much quieter place to meet for dinner, drinks and a discussion of the day’s affairs in an atmospheric building full of history. For a lunch time meeting head to Café De Jaren, which offers big tables, lots of natural light, and a great view of the river Amstel. To relax and forget about the days events, head over to Pasta e Basta for quality Italian food and live entertainment.
If you’re limited on time and looking to have a quick drink at the end of a busy day, the Warmoestraat, which runs from the Krasnopolsky to Centraal Station, has many local bars and coffeeshops.
