Format: Paperback
I have this book. Found it very helpful over the course of two visits to Amsterdam. I'm writing this review though primarily to give some balance to the question of the maps it has.

There are several separate maps in the book for each section of the city. These are handy, as far as they go (but are actually improved upon in the smaller Lonely Planet book "Amsterdam Encounter" -- one of my two top recommendations for Amsterdam travel guides -- the other is "Get Lost!").

But the primary map is the removable full-city (well, as full as you'd probably want) one at the back of the book (it's also included in the smaller Encounter guide book). This is a very handy map indeed. There is a high density of streets in Amsterdam, and many change names as they cross intersections. This map has the most in-place street names printed on the map of any other I found. There is a street name index on the reverse, along with a tram map.

The only downsides I found to this map were 1) that I used it so much it began to fall apart at the creases, and 2) that the tram lines were not overlaid on the street map itself. I have found exactly 1 Amsterdam map that overcomes these faults, and it's not included in any of the other guides -- it's the Amsterdam Pocket-Pilot, but because it's laminated it's more difficult to make your own map annotations... I guess you can't have everything!

Bottom line, the map in this guide is definitely superior to the ones from Time Out and Rough Guide, which I think are the most comparable competitors.

I had been to Amsterdam before without a guidebook and had a great time visiting a friend of a friend. On my second trip, this book helped me understand the neighborhoods a little better and helped in picking out a great cheap hotel in a quiet neighborhood.

First time I went to Amsterdam this book came in handy. A brief description of plenty of places to go and a map to help you along.
