Hotel Agora is established in a striking white canalside house dating from 1735. Hotel Agora Amsterdam is easy to reach by train, and is only a 15-minute walk from the station. It lies in the heart of Amsterdam near the flower market and between Amsterdam's main squares: the [i]Leidseplein[/i], the [i]Rembrandtplein[/i] and the [i]Dam[/i]. It is a fantastic location from which to experience and discover Amsterdam's colourful sights and sounds: whether walking along the flea market or enjoying a drink on one of the many terraces around the [i]Leidseplein[/i].Surroundings
Amsterdam offers all sorts of opportunities in terms of culture, history and culinary pleasures. Culture lovers should definitely not miss a trip to the Hermitage Amsterdam. This museum opened in 2009 and is a branch of the famous Russian Hermitage. It features regularly alternating exhibitions which explore Russian art and culture. The [i]Rijksmuseum[/i] and [i]Van Gogh Museum[/i] are also certainly worth visiting, while the [i]Jordaan[/i] area - a typical working class neighbourhood, where the poorest of Amsterdammers once lived in houses that were far too small - offers a good insight into the lives of 19th century Amsterdammers. Nowadays, trendy young urbanites reside in this revived neighboorhood; its traditional workshops now replaced by charming boutiques.Food and Drink
