Where to stay in Amsterdam

Where to stay in Amsterdam

Amsterdam offers a varied choice of accommodation, to satisfy all tastes; however, it is generally expensive and the quality is not always what you'd hope for. 

Even though the average quality of the hotels and hostels is lower than the hotel classification standards in Europe, the prices are usually more expensive than capitals such as London or Paris.

Best places to stay in Amsterdam

The best areas to stay in Amsterdam include Dam Square, Spui and Leidseplein. These three plazas and their surroundings offer numerous bars, stores, restaurants, supermarkets, among other things. You will find these neighborhoods full of life at all hours of the day.

If you prefer to stay a little further away from the city center, we suggest you book a hotel near a tram stop, so you can get to the historic center comfortably. Otherwise, you might not want to go out when it rains.

Hotels in Amsterdam

As previously mentioned, the average price of hotels in Amsterdam are more expensive than other major European cities.

It is possible to find a double room in a centrally-located hotel for 70 (US$ 74.70) per night if you book several months in advance. If you’re traveling on a tight budget and want to find something cheaper, you might have to sacrifice having a private bathroom.

Another way to save money is to book a room in a hotel that offers great deals for prepayment. If you have already booked your flights, book at a nonrefundable hotel and save around 30%.
