Multiple locations all over the city so there's probably one near your hotel. The bike was in good condition and easy to ride. Amsterdam is incredibly bike-friendly so this is a perfect way to see the city. Friendly efficient service and decent prices.

Perfect for what I needed, the bike I used worked fine. Amsterdam is best seen while on a bike, and the guys in the shop were very helpful.

Dear Gian: Thank you very much for your review. We always offer pedal brake bikes because in some countries are used more than the handbrake ones, so everyone can choose what is best. Have a nice day, Black Bikes rental team.

You don't have to pay 50€ before the renting like other rent bike companies. So that's why I rent them the bike. All OK.
