Amsterdam is one of Europe’s premier destinations, and tourists from all over the world flock there to enjoy its unique combination of artful streets along canals and bohemian atmosphere. In Amsterdam, you’ll be able to visit the legendary Van Gogh museum during the day and wander the canals with a sausage sandwich in hand at night.
Most Dutch speak flawless English, so you’ll find Amsterdam to be an easy place to navigate and enjoy.
You’ll need to find a place to stay during your trip, and it can be a bit intimidating to navigate hotel web pages in Dutch. Skyscanner is a great resource for booking a hotel, as we’ll be able to hook you up with the accommodations that fit your needs.
Amsterdam’s neighborhoods have wonderful diversity and allure. If you’re willing to pay a higher price for the sake of being in the midst of everything, hotels within Amsterdam’s Grachtengordel-West will leave you less than a ten minute walk from everything downtown.
If you’re looking for a more laid back hotel, check out Amsterdam-Zuid’s Buitenveldert-Oost section. You’ll be able to find cheaper—though still respectable—hotels there, nearby one of Amsterdam’s universities.
Prices for hotels in Amsterdam range from the dirt cheap to the high-end. For most of the hotels that you’ll find in the downtown, expect to spend more than a hundred dollars per night. Some hotels will be as expensive as several hundreds of dollars per night, so plan accordingly.
No matter what your price point is, you’ll be able to find a hotel which suits you.
Amsterdam has a few boutique hotels, which have taken off in recent years in response to demand from tourists. Boutique hotels in Amsterdam tend to be much smaller than boutique hotels elsewhere due to their use of the old yet beautifully small buildings along the canals.
There are boutique hotels stashed in various nooks and crannies, but they might be hard to find on the Internet if you’re not looking for them in Dutch. Unlike elsewhere, boutique hotels aren’t necessarily significantly more expensive in Amsterdam, and their quality is highly variable.
What you’ll get for your buck in Amsterdam is consistent with elsewhere in Europe. Hotels in Amsterdam will offer the standard amenities like a concierge, free wi-fi, and limited room service.
If you’re looking for a hotel with a pool or a spa, you’ll have to opt for one of the major chain hotels, though. Most hotels in Amsterdam will be too small to offer amenities like these. You’ll also be hard-pressed to find gyms or extensive room service options.
Don’t let that dissuade you from booking a hotel in Amsterdam, though. The Dutch are extremely welcoming, and every hotel will have at least a few locals to give you tips on what to see in the area and how to get there.
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.
