Find Amsterdam hotels and explore the capital of The Netherlands
Amsterdam is a tale of two cities. It has a highbrow side, with lots of art galleries and picturesque canals lined by narrow Golden Age houses, and a wild side with an infamous red light district and coffee shops that don't actually sell coffee. The best things to do in Amsterdam will really depend on your travel style. Choosing the best place to stay in Amsterdam can set the scene for your trip, whether you're planning a wild weekend with your pals or a romantic getaway with your other half.
Where to stay in Amsterdam
Get your city breaks in Amsterdam off to a great start by picking the right neighbourhood. Hotels in the Old Centre are great if you're on a budget, with lots of offbeat apartments and backpacker hostels. There are also a few luxury hotels in this area, walking distance from the Red Light District, too. Hipsters will love hotels in Jordaan. This leafy neighbourhood is away from the tourist traps, and has plenty of cute little cafés and bars for people-watching. Hotels in up-and-coming Amsterdam Noord and the Eastern Docklands are ideal if you don't mind being a little bit out of the city centre.
Hotels near Amsterdam Airport
If you're jetting off on an early morning flight, a night at an Amsterdam Schiphol Airport hotel will relieve some of the exhaustion. Hotels in Amstelveen are a short drive from the airport, but there are lots of large chain hotels near the airport too. Quite a few luxury hotels are located on the airport grounds, with some budget options for those who just want to get their head down and relax. If you're catching the ferry, look for hotels in Ijmuiden. This is where Amsterdam's ferry terminal is located, and is a short drive
Unique Amsterdam accommodation
As well as chain hotels and five star luxury properties, there are lots of quirky places to stay in Amsterdam. Houseboats are a popular choice for self-catering travellers, and their location on the waterways of the city means plenty of relaxed mornings watching ducks and grebes float by. Some boutique hotels and apartments are located inside the iconic townhouses by the side of the canal. Quirky Amsterdam hostels in the city centre have themed rooms, adding extra fun to your trip.
Getting to and from your Amsterdam hotel
Amsterdam is flat as a pancake, making it a fantastic city to explore on bicycle. Other transport options include trams, buses and underground metro trains. The I amsterdam city card is a good buy, offering free entry to many of the city's top museums and attractions as well as free rides on the GVB transport network. If you don't fancy hitting the tourist hotspots, you can pick up a day ticket for the transport network instead.
I had a great time here! There are wonderful museums! Just be sure to book them online ahead of time as tickets cannot be purchased at the door of the Anne Frank Museum! Amsterdam is very LGBTQ+ friendly and has a great music and night club scene! There are plenty of public parks, canals for boat rides and coffee shops to enjoy what Amsterdam is known best for!
Amazing city , beautiful to qalk around, good sweet, at night not suitable for kids
Visited during a cruise and spent a day browsing the Christmas markets, a great time to go. Very festive, fantastic food and so many gift ideas
I had a great time here, visiting for a conference. The venue was a cool art nouveau theatre, and the nightlife was great. I’d love to visit again and get a chance to properly explore.
