In 2014 when I last went to Amsterdam, I stayed Hampshire Hotel - Eden Amsterdam which was near Rembrandtplein It was a pretty nice American style hotel at a decent price and location. The transit system stops nearby made it very easy to get anywhere if not within walking distance.

Sebastian's is nice, quiet and walking distance to lots of sights, plus an easy walking distance to the central station. Good breakfast and friendly service. Our room was at the back so no canal view but still a nice and interesting view over the back of local people's houses. The canal was super-pretty at night and it was right by one of the light festival installations.

We used the Marriott Hotel Amsterdam (Museum District) and were well pleased. 


One possibility - Hotel NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky (next to Dam Sq) is what I would consider central (near R/R station).  We had dinner there one evening (restaurant Refletwas delightful).  Well rated and well located if that's the section of the city desired.

We stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Double Tree by Hilton. They have a great skylounge on the 11th Fl. Great location. Around $200 a night, depending on dates.

Check and compare also the Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam and the Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel.

Hi Ellen,

There are MANY options in Amsterdam. It really doesn't matter where your hotel is, Amsterdam is quite small so you can walk almost everything and most likely you will also rent a bike :-). Just try to stay within this circle: De ClercqstraatVan BaerlestraatCeintuurbaanVan WoustraatMauritskadeHaarlemmerplein (check the map). Then you could actually walk everything. 

As I never stayed in a hotel here in my hometown, it is difficult for me to recommend you a hotel :-). Just check out the reviews on booking . com Good luck!

Hi Ellen, 

We've been to Amsterdam about five times and stayed in hotels, hostels and a canal boat (through Airbnb). 

Besides the canal boat, the best accommodation we stayed in was the Stayokay Amsterdam Vondelpark. They are clean, safe, and very reasonably priced. The location is also great - it's a little way from Amsterdam Centraal, but it is right beside Vondelpark and you can get there very easily via the trams or on a bike. They also do bike hire, and have a shed for if you hire your own bike elsewhere. This is a great area for the nightlife of Leidseplein and to get to the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and Van Gogh Museum early (which you need to do to avoid long lines). 

Here are some of my posts about Amsterdam to give you an idea of what to expect, what you can do, and what things cost:

Hotel Pulitzer, Amsterdam.  It's just a bit outside the city centre, but since central Amsterdam is so compact it's only a 10 minute walk to the centre and a 15 minute walk to Amsterdam Centraal train station.  It's not cheap, but it's one of the few 4-5 star hotels I've stayed at that I thought was excellent value for the money.  You pay loads, but you get loads.  The service is first-rate, the hotel itself is beautiful, they don't nickel-and-dime you to death, and it's in a quiet neighbourhood.
