Backpackers looking to spend the night in a cheap, friendly hostel will find themselves welcome at The Flying Pig, with two hostels slap bang in the city centre – one downtown (next to Amsterdam Central Station) and the other uptown. For ethical accommodation with an artsy twist, get with the cultural programme at WOW Hostel, west of the city centre.
If you’ve made it to Amsterdam, you’ll probably want to spend a night (or ten) here; there is far too much to see and do in a day. Amsterdam hotels range from the basic to brilliant, and if you’re looking for an extra unique place to lay your head check out our pick of 10 unusual hotels in Amsterdam. If you’d rather self-cater though, then you should check out some of the city’s short-stay apartments or houseboats.
Pros: The INK hotel is in the perfect spot and it’s a gorgeous boutique. The room had very unique, modern decor with stylish writing on the walls. I worried that the look might come off cheesy, but it was very well done. Loves the staff, restaurant, and bar!
Situated on Dam Square and offering views of the Royal Palace, the 5-star NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky is an elegant choice. A short walk away, the 4-star Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam, cleverly merges contemporary design with the historical architecture of 18th century merchant houses.

Pros: Hotel was awesome!! Staying here was an awesome decision. Right next to a metro station, so instant access to city center and everywhere. Hotel was beautiful and everyone was wonderful. Many many amenities and great roof party!
“My girlfriend and I arrived with chest infections – at reception, the young guy with short dark hair was extremely helpful and arranged our doctor’s appointment. He saved my holiday. All other staff were lovely too”
Thank you for organising yet another lovely stay in Amsterdam! The appartment was perfect and the IstayDam team are brilliant hosts. I really appreciate the understanding with my late check in and how easily this was resolved. The team went above and beyond during our stay. As a fellow lettings agent I understand how difficult this can be when so busy! Please pass on my thanks to Rick and his team. Kind Regards, Rowen
Amsterdam Airport Schipol is located 9kms outside of the city and there are a number of great hotels nearby. Check out our recommendations of hotels near Amsterdam airport to find the ideal place for you.
Cons: The smell of smoke in the bathroom was unbareable. Room on top of the swimming pool. The noise from the pool was something that we did not appreciate. The heat from the swimming pool was not good either. Could have stayed in the holliday in for a similar price. Not a good experience. They gave me a 25 dollars discount. I would pay additional 25 USD not to have these problems.
“Geen warm ontbijt, maar dit verwachtten we niet voor de voordelige prijs. Wel genoeg variatie. De croissants waren heerlijk. We mochten heel vroeg inchecken. Aan de balie waren ze zeer vriendelijk en helpvol. Tramhalte aan overkant, met tram 14 vlot naar centrum Amsterdam. Mogelijkheid om ticket openbaar vervoer in het hotel aan te kopen.”
The house is very comfortable, has everything you need for a short or long stay, everything was clean. We were 2 couples, and we had a really nice stay at Brazil apartment. The hostess is very helpful and very kind too 🙂 Recommend!
The Quentin England Hotel is housed in an 18th century building, opposite the Vondelpark and just a 7 minute walk from the Rijksmuseum and van Gogh Museum. The hotel’s facilities include free wifi, a 24-hour reception, a private garden with a terrace, and continental breakfasts are available. The smart rooms feature free wifi, flat-screen TVs, and desks.
Pros: The location is perfect, walking distance from the train. We also walked both days from the hotel through the neighborhoods to the museum district and back. The breakfast and cocktail receptions were an added benefit.

This is a peaceful suburb close to Waterlooplein. The area includes the house of the Dutch painter, Rembrandt, the Hermitage Museum and the Tropenmuseum. You can also enjoy some nature in the Botanical Gardens (Hortus Botanicus) and at Artis, the city zoo. View hotels.
Pros: The building is an antique that seems to recently been rejuvenated. It’s important to keep this in mind when coming here, because the place is not a modern hotel, and so some modern things may be missing. For example, the elevators could be quite awkward and I cannot imagine how the floors are handicap accessible. That said, the bathrooms were brand new and quite nice. And finally, they throw in a full, FREE mini-bar.
Good afternoon Mo I’d just like to say thanks for letting me and my 2 friends stay in your fantastic Hollywood apartment. It was my 16th trip to Amsterdam and the second time I have stayed in your apartment which has to be the greatest place I have stayed in the many times I’ve been there. The location is fantastic and your hospitality is first class and I’m always comfortable & never once have i never felt relaxed during my stay. Your apartment decor is fun and quirky which I always enjoy when I stay there. I hope we were not to noisy and your apartment was tidy after we left. I look forward to staying at your Hollywood apartment again hopefully in September or early next year. Thanks for a great stay Regards Rob Norris
Hi, I just wanted to confirm that the apartment and host were both absolutely fantastic and we look forward to staying again, the garden was beautiful and peaceful and the location was perfect. We loved everything about this accommodation, especially the cats. Erin
Vlak bij het Museumplein en het Vondelpark bevindt zich het Leidseplein, hét uitgaanscentrum van de stad. Van de Stadsschouwburg tot Irish pubs en comedy theater Boom Chicago, het aanbod is groot. In de buurt zijn een aantal zeer bekende podiums voor popmuziek, waaronder de Melkweg, Paradiso en de Balie. Bekijk hotels.
Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport is really close to the city centre and therefore really easy to get to via a selection of public transport. The easiest way is to hop on the train, which takes around 20 minutes. Alternatively, there are a selection of buses outside the terminals that travel direct to various parts of the city centre. Otherwise there is a busy taxi rank by the airport where you can pick up a quick, cheap cab to your destination.

“unieke locatie en alles wat men wilt,zoals een compacte kamer met al het nodige comfort en zeer vriendelijke bediening met de nodige uitleg om bijvoorbeeld het veer te nemen of in de late uurtjes het shuttelbusje”
Cons: Lounge didn’t have food available all the time Lounge should open at 5 am We were with my handicap father and the hotel lobby is handicap accessible but it would be a real problem if he had to leave quickly.
