Such a beautiful station, worth getting a GVB travel ticket across the road in the tourist info building if you're staying for a couple of days so you can get the tram/metro/bus anywhere within Amsterdam by just scanning in and out.

Centraal station is an imposing beautiful piece of architecture. The station is practical and more to the point, on the occasions we were there everything ran precisely on time.

We were staying one station away from Centraal. Hugely convenient to get here then you have a choice to take a train from inside or a metro, bus or tram from just outside to go anywhere. You can also pay to use restroom here.

It's great that you can get a train straight from the airport into the city centre. It's easy to get around and a nice train station

Super easy access to and from the airport. Drops you right by the Ferry too. I'll never take a taxi into town again

Efficient but slightly chaotic transfer from airport to Amsterdam and back. Touch screen ticket vending machines work well and the trains although very busy are clean and efficient.

Easy train station to navigate through. Simple to get tickets in English or any language. Helpful staff. Clear signs and easy to use trains. Be warned they run on time!

Centrum
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
