Hotel In Amsterdam

Recommended Posts

We'll be staying in Amsterdam for 3 nights after our

River Cruise in May 2017...looking for a place in a decent location to some of the sights (not too far from Anne Frank's house). Would love a bed and breakfast type place but really just want something reasonable with easy access....so a hotel is also fine. Any suggestions? Also anyone know of any tour companies that cater to hotel guests? Info much appreciated

We stayed at the Brouwer last year, this is a small B&B in a historic old building on the Singel Canal, midway between Dam square and Anne Frank House. We loved the place, very centrally located and you can walk everywhere. There's also a tram stop nearby, as well as lots of small restaurants. They fill up very fast thought, you can email to ask, the owner Boegem usually replies by return.

You will find many B&B's on this site:

Please be aware that often B&B and also small (or older) hotels lack an elevator, while rooms will be 2nd or 3rd floor. Rooms also might be smaller then expected. Also know that in Europe, 1st floor is what in the USA is called 2nd floor.

Amsterdam is a compact city, very walkable and excellent public transportation.

Thank you as well Ine...have some research to do...

Thank you for mentioning about the stairs....I do have some small knee issues so a B&B may not be the best choice for us? Can you recommend a few reasonable hotels?

The Brouwer has an elevator, albeit a tiny one, but it works:D

We stayed at the Singel Hotel, small and very well located on a quiet side street within walking distance of train station. Amsterdam is quite expensive and we prefer smaller more reasonable hotels like this

We have stayed at the Toren. It is well located, around the corner from the Anne Frank House and is a really nice small hotel. However, it is not inexpensive! If it is in your price range, you won't go wrong with the Toren.

Thanks for all the suggestions and I did look into all of them. We finally decided on the Best Western Dam Square...seems like a good location and easy proximity to public transportation.

The Toren is very near Anne Frank's house and is amazing.

 

We're booked at The Toren for our cruise in August - I'm excited to stay there. It looks lovely and I've heard such great things about this hotel.

Has anyone used Uber in Amsterdam,either around the city or from cruise terminal to airport?

Thanks.

We have stayed at the Owl Hotel many times. Very nice small hotel in the museum district.
