Amsterdam Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Amsterdam

From 5* canalside hotels to quirky cheap hostels, you can find virtually every type of accommodation in Amsterdam’s variety of districts. And whether you want something in the middle of all the action, or would rather experience the quieter side of the Netherlands capital during your holiday, there’s the perfect neighbourhood waiting for you.

Cultural events, parties and a rich tapestry of history: there are endless reasons why people travel to Amsterdam. Couples, families and groups of friends are spoilt for things to do in this eclectic city all year round, making it the ideal destination for everything from a winter city break to a week-long holiday.

Where to stay

Jordaan

You’ll need your cameras at the ready for this picturesque area of Amsterdam, which is home to quaint bridges and all the artistic vibes. The Jordaan neighbourhood is to Amsterdam what Shoreditch is to London. It’s full of independent shops, quirky accommodation, and chic restaurants - plus it’s handily just a short walk away from all the city centre sights, including the Anne Frank House. Just as you’d expect in this neighbourhood, accommodation is varied and stylish, ranging from budget hostels to upmarket canalside lodging.

Dam

If you want to be in the middle of the city on your holiday, the Dam neighbourhood is where you’ll find the heart of all the action, from the after-dark entertainment of the Red Light District to the main shopping centre. Large hotel chains are dotted around the centre, giving you easy access to key sights including Madame Tussauds, the Amsterdam Dungeon and the National Monument.

Amsterdam Oud-Zuid

Set a short walk away from the city’s central canal network, the Oud-Zuid area showcases a quieter side to Amsterdam. Check into one of the chain hotels or independent accommodation options and you’ll be on the doorstep of some of the city’s most exciting museums, like Rijksmuseum and the contemporary art of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. You’ll also be close to the 120-acre Vondelpark, perfect for daytime strolls, summer picnics and free open air concerts between May and September.

What to see

Whether you’re in Amsterdam for a weekend or longer holiday, you’ll be spoilt for things to do in this vibrant city. The first port-of-call for many is to track down the Instagrammable ‘I Amsterdam’ letters which move around the city every few months. Once you’ve taken all the photos to fill up your feed, learn more about the city by exploring it from a new perspective: by a boat tour, along its UNESCO protected canal belt. Tours take in the history of the city and provide the perfect views to take in the twinkling fairy lights over the charming bridges.

Culture vultures will love the range of museums available around the city. The Anne Frank House, based in the exact building where Anne and her family went into hiding during World War 2, is one of the most popular. However, there’s everything from Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art to the Museum of Bags and Purses and also Heineken Experience, catering for all tastes. And, of course, no holiday to Amsterdam is complete without visiting Bloemenmarkt. Found along the Singel canal, the world’s only floating flower market sells colourful plants and accessories to brighten up your home. Read more about the top cultural spots in our blog here.

Nightlife

From all-night raves to low-key bars, Amsterdam has it all for every type of holidaymaker. The city has a thriving nightlife scene, with clubs regularly hosting international DJs. Hen and stag parties are a regular sight around the city centre thanks to its influx of bars, pubs and coffee shops - there’s everything from old-school bars to lively clubs.

For quirky nightlife, head out of the main centre towards Amsterdam Oud-West. It’s got much more of an alternative scene, with speakeasys and jazz clubs sitting alongside world-famous clubs and various music venues.

What to eat

The Netherlands is famous for many tasty treats, including stroopwafels, pancakes, Dutch fries and raw herring. A short walk out from the Jordaan neighbourhood is Foodhallen, a site that features dozens of food stalls all under one roof. Pick up some Chinese cuisine, traditional Dutch snacks or some Mediterranean delicacies, and then huddle around the central seating area with your friends.

Shopping

Amsterdam is a shopper’s paradise, offering plenty of opportunities to pick up gifts for loved ones back home - as well as some treats for yourself. The city centre is home to a number of local and international chains where you can pick up clothes, Dutch delicacies, homeware and souvenirs. For something a little different, head to Albert Cuypmarkt in De Pijp. It’s open six days a week and is one of the most famous street markets in the city. You’ll find everything from food to bags, clothing and flowers.

Perfect Location

Lovely comfortable hotel in a quiet street just 200 meters from the bustling Leidse Plein square and just around the corner from a beautiful park. Quiet, friendly staff, particularly the Scottish lady in the breakfast room. Breakfast was basic continental but very nice and never struggled to find a table and never needed to que. Bed was very comfortable and was made every day, Everywhere was clean and tidy

The best thing about my stay was...

The proximity to the town

Our stay at Leidse Square Hotel

The Hotel's well situated in a leafy square off the main road amongst some attractive buildings close to museums, coffee shops and ethnic restaurants. We got a brusque welcome from a receptionist who we later noticed being spectacularly rude to a visibly startled Oriental couple with limited English.We had a spacious room with large windows which opened on to a lovely view of the square. Comfy beds,good bathroom facilities, cleaning to a very high standard as well as an intimate very reasonably priced hotel bar impressed.The breakfast at 7.50 euro -if you book in advance -is quite good value with an impressive range of cold meats and breads but I'd suggest giving the cooked part the bacon and scrambled egg a miss. Overall with some minor reservations apart we'd return albeit with a thicker skin should we happen upon our Fawlteyesque receptionist.

good location but only 2 star in places

just came back from a 2 day stay in this hotel with my husband, we found the hotel easy to get to, we took the tram but that was the only time we used it as we were not as far away from the centre as we thought we would be. from the tram stop walk past the Marriotte hotel first left and the hotel is just round the corner in a very quiet street. i booked a double superior and reqested no higher than 1st or 2nd floor but when we arrived after 6.00pm we were given room 402 on the top floor, when i pionted out i had asked for a lower floor she told us that is was quiet room overlooking the back of the hotel we went to look at the room, after a trek up 4 flight of stairs (don't like lifts) we went in to a grotty room (only 2 star standed with air con) over looking some gardens so we went back to ask for another room and to point out that my request was on the front booking voucher that i had given her. after some comments about having to move other people who had not arrived yet she asked if we would take a room with out air con on the ground floor which we did, what a differance, a nice modern room at the side of the hotel (lookin over at the Owl hotel) and even though it is on the street we found it very quiet and peacefull and the bed was very comfortable and the room was cleaned well the second day so it made up for what could have a bad trip. we did not eat in the hotel so can't recomend the food, the hotel areas could do with modernisation but were clean. the hotel is in a nice area close to every thing and would stay in this area again but maybe not this hotel as i get the impression that we were being fobed of at the start and that as we were later arriving we were given a room that was left over, next time will phone to see if they have our request. on the whole not bad, good location but there is a big difference in the rooms and the superior room we were offered first was a joke and only was payin extra for air con, the standard room we had was far superior.

Pleasant stay would go back

Pros A pleasant and clean hotel that is well situated for restaurants and bars. Good tram links nearby and its right beside the Vondelpark. Breakfast is good for the price. Cons Our room was the first room at top of the stairs and where the lift exited which made the room quite noisy with people coming and going all night.

Excellent

Stayed for 2 nights and couldn't fault anything. We arrived 5 hours before check-in but the hotel stored our luggage at no extra cost. Rooms well equiped and clean. Breakfast was buffet style and plenty to choose from. Didn't use the bar but it looked well stocked. Would recommend to friends and family

Cracking little hotel

Easy to get to whilst being away from the noise of the Damrak area. Clean, tidy, friendly and helpful staff. Very comfortable bed and a decent breakfast...although continental breakfasts with greasy streaky bacon are never quite the same as back home! I will stay here again... great value!

The best thing about my stay was...

Great Hotel, Excellent location!

THIS HOTEL WAS IDEALLY LOCATED FOR ALL TRANSPORT LINKS ON A QUIET STREET AND ONLY 3 MINUTE WALK FROM THE LIVELY LEIDSE SQUARE. ONLY A TEN MINUTE WALK TO THE MUSEUM QUARTER. THE HOTEL STAFF WERE VERY HELPFUL. THE TRIPLE ROOM WE STAYED IN WAS A GOOD SIZE AND VERY CLEAN. BUFFET BREAKFAST HAD A GREAT VARIETY TO CHOOSE FROM. I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN IF RETURNING TO AMSTERDAM.
