Where to stay in Amsterdam

There are four distinct areas to stay in Amsterdam including the city centre, the Canal Ring, Jordaan and Amsterdam-Zuid.  With its liberal attitude towards sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll Amsterdam has become a firm favourite with stag parties, hen do's, and students. It's not all red lights and coffee shops, however. The capital of the Netherlands is home to hundreds of museums and art galleries, colourful flower markets, sprawling parks and quaint cobbled streets. A wide array of independent shops, flea markets and vintage boutiques makes it a dream destination for fashionistas and hipsters.

 

The best area to stay in Amsterdam will depend on what you’re visiting for: history and culture, epic nights out or a bit of both. We've put together a quick guide to the best places to stay in Amsterdam, and some of our favourite hotels in each area.

 

Hotels in Amsterdam city centre

The Old Centre is the heart of Amsterdam. Dam Square is the iconic centre of the neighbourhood, which includes the backpacker (and stag party) mecca of the red light district. There's plenty of accommodation in central Amsterdam, ranging from hostels to palatial five star hotels. We've picked a few of the best hotels to stay in Amsterdam city centre.

1. Ibis Styles Amsterdam Central Station

This modern and trendy hotel is right outside Central Station, the entry point for most people arriving in Amsterdam from Schiphol Airport. It's convenient for exploring the city centre, and rooms include free Wi-Fi and breakfast.

2. Greenhouse Effect

This lively hotel is right in the middle of the Red Light District. The rooms (and apartments) are decorated with playful touches like graffiti, vibrant wallpaper and neon lights. The hotel's bar regularly hosts DJ and live music nights.

3. Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam

This hotel combines 18th and 19th Century architecture with sleek modernity. The hotel has a fitness centre, a cocktail bar and a restaurant serving up Dutch fare made from locally sourced ingredients.

 

Hotels in Amsterdam Canal Ring

Known as Grachtengordel in Dutch. This neighbourhood is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and sits just outside the old city centre. The most popular areas to stay here are Rembrandtsplein and Leidseplein, two of Amsterdam's most popular nightlife areas.

1. International Budget Hostel City Centre

Based inside a 17th Century warehouse, this hostel is best for young people, students and backpackers. The breakfast room looks over the canal: what a great way to start every morning in Amsterdam.

2. Hotel Miauw Suites

This B&B boutique hotel is in the city's 9 straatjes (9 streets) area, which is famous for its excellent shops. This hotel's suites and apartments are very quirky, the perfect base for those interested in art and vintage style.

3. The Dylan, Amsterdam

This luxurious boutique hotel has views over the Keizersgracht canal. Rooms have courtyard views, flat screen TVs and Bose sound systems. Some have cathedral ceilings, rainfall showerheads and canopy beds. The suite has its very own espresso machine!

 

Accommodation in Jordaan

This bohemian neighbourhood is renowned for its art galleries, folk music and trendy shops. The Jordaan is a quiet and leafy neighbourhood: it's more craft beer and mixologist bars than of buzzing coffee shops and fun pubs.

1. Elandsgracht Apartment

This three bedroom apartment in Amsterdam is on the third floor of a classic townhouse, just a short walk away from major attractions like the Anne Frank House.

2. Ams Suites

This five star bed and breakfast has contemporary rooms with exposed beam ceilings. It's adults only, so you can enjoy a very grown up stay. Although it's a B&B, breakfast isn't served on-site: instead you get a voucher for the celebrated Vlaamsch Broodhuys bakers just along the road.

3. B&B La Festa

This award-winning B&B sits above the celebrated Italian restaurant of the same name. There are two room types, standard and studio. The studio has its own kitchen so you can prepare your own meals and snacks.

 

Hotels in Amsterdam-Zuid

Moving slightly further from the city centre, the southern area of Amsterdam is home to top tourist attractions such as the Museum Quarter, Vondelpark and the lively markets of De Pijp. Hotels in this neighbourhood are also great for people looking for a quiet break in Amsterdam rather than a party weekend.

1. Hotel Vossius Vondelpark

This hotel is set in two historic buildings, just opposite Vondelpark. Rooms have iPod docking stations in addition to all of the usual facilities (flatscreen TVs, Wi-Fi and a hot drink station).

2. Max Brown Museum Square

Trendy design touches add a splash of character to this funky hotel, located just a short walk from the Van Gogh Museum. Its set across four classic Amsterdam townhouses, so you can feel like a real local.

3. Nova Amsterdam Apartments

These apartments in Amsterdam give you the freedom to work, cook and relax as if you were at home. Guests can also enjoy complimentary breakfasts, so don't worry about stocking up on pastries when you hit the supermarket.
