    Amazing selection but definitely overpriced! Check out the collector's book editions, and sit by the widow to people watch. They also have lots of good mags.

    Love the non-fiction selection on the top floor and the fact that they also sell some of my favorite 'uk-only' food

    The children's section is so good here! Lots of great picture books, including Oliver Jeffers. Young Adult not so great.

    There's a nice window seat on the 2nd floor in the children's section where you can sit and relax in the sun, should you need to wait ...

    My favorite bookstore! Beautiful covers, mostly pocketbooks and only in English. And there are always some discounts

    Buy expensive Branston Pickle and other British goodies here. Still cheaper than the rip-off 'British goods' shops around Amsterdam.

    English books and a nice selection of British confectionery. It's very pricey.

    You don't get student discount here! If you want to get more out of your money, go to American Book Center (around the corner). They do have stamp cards at Waterstones but those don't save you much.

    A bit overpriced but with good selection of books and very kind and helpful stuff.

    Bit expensive, I paid €30 for a book, and it was full of spelling and grammar mistakes. The book was printed in NL, but I still think the publishers could have checked it....and the sellers.

    very friendly helpful staff, but I could not bring myself to buy a book at the prices they charge. They also sell food, but far too expensive compared with other shops in town.

    Bit overpriced and the atmosphere isn't great. I'd recommend checking out The American Book Center at Spui, just around the corner.
