I will be In Amsterdam for 3 days with daughter and granddaughter , we would like some help to find a cheap and clean placê to stay. We dont mind if it is not In The Center. Granddaughter is 11 years old. A couch could work well. Ist only for sleeping and Bath. Any one can help?
I suggest you start by looking at www.airbnb.com where people advertise their spare rooms or own apartments for short lets.
You might also look at hostels. Many hostels nowadays have separate rooms, not just dormitories, perhaps with 3 or 4 beds. Try www.hostelworld.com
If you are only in Amsterdam for 3 days and want to explore the city, its sights and sites, imo it is best to stay as near to the centre as you can. Otherwise you'll be spending additional time and money on travelling in and out each day.
Thanks but I am having sort of a hard time. We will keep on trying. Thanks!!!
Do you mean you are having a hard time finding somewhere cheap enough to stay?
The best lodging I ever heard about in Amsterdam is through HomeAway.com and you stay on a boat in the canal area. There you would have cooking facilities which saves a lot on restaurants. Also... for young kids, they have space to stretch and watch the activity on the river. Have fun!
