Amsterdam’s Best Hotels

Amsterdam, The Netherland’s premier commercial city, has a stunning setting around a 17th century ring of canals, some of the world's finest art and a tolerant culture - we all know about the red light district and Amsterdam’s liberal drug laws. But to ensure your stay goes as perfectly as possible, you’ll need our Guru’s list of Amsterdam’s best hotels.

Amsterdam

There’s a HUGE range of choice when it comes to Amsterdam’s accommodation, which is why it’s so important to choose Amsterdam's best hotels wisely!

Amsterdam’s Best Hotels for a City Break

  • The College Hotel is a boutique hotel in the centre of Amsterdam’s fashion and museum district, with large rooms, a terrace, bar and restaurant.
  • The Hotel V Nesplein is a slick, modern city hotel with industrial chic style and a buzzy restaurant and bar.

Hotel V Nesplein

  • The Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy is a large, historic building with industrial sized rooms each individually decorated and a great selection of public spaces used for art exhibitions, meetings, fashion shows, a library and of course restaurants.
  • Or, for something smaller, and with a little more historic charm, try the Art Deco Hotel Roemer, with its individually decorated rooms, roaring fires and hidden private garden.

Amsterdam’s Best Hotels for Romance

  • Misc has just six personally styled, boutique rooms, and is right by the canal, in the fashion/ cultural district, so it’s a great choice if you want a bit of peace and privacy.

Suitehotel Posthoorn

  • The Suitehotel Posthoorn is another six room hotel, this time converted from a lovely townhouse just outside the city proper, and with the value add of a Michelin starred restaurant.
  • Or, for something larger, try Andaz Amsterdam, a spectacular, five star boutique hotel with fantastically designed rooms, suites and public spaces - think chandeliers, murals, plenty of gold, and canal side views.

Amsterdam’s Best Hotels for Foodies

  • The Hotel de L'Europe is a luxurious, five star, canal side hotel with a Michelin starred restaurant and a state of the art spa.

Hotel de l'Europe

Amsterdam’s Best Hotels for Great Value

  • The Hotel Vondel is in a great location near shops, museums and Amsterdam’s nightlife and has 80+ whitewashed rooms with wooden furniture, arranged around a lovely courtyard garden - and all starting from around £60 per night.

Hotel Vondel

  • For around the same price you could stay at CitizenM Amsterdam City, a modern hotel with small, high-tech tools and a cool living area and canteen.
  • Also amazing value at around £56 per night, the Volkshotel is an old newspaper office converted into a large, creatively designed hotel with its own bar and nightclub.

Amsterdam’s Best Hotels for Buzz

  • Art'otel is a modern hotel, specially designed to be young and hip, and it’s even got its own art gallery and an excellent restaurant.

Conservatorium

  • The Conservatorium was originally a bank then a music school, and is now a hip, buzzy hotel ideally located for all that the city has to offer.
  • Or you might try the Hotel Estheréa, which sounds kind of old school, and is converted from an opulent 17th Century hotel next to the city’s oldest canal, but is actually very lively.

Amsterdam’s Best Hotels for Canal Views

  • For something hip, but also beautifully located, try the Max Brown Hotel, which has 34 stylish rooms overlooking one of Amsterdam’s prettiest canals, close to the major sights and nightlife.

Hotel Wiechmann

  • The Hotel Wiechmann is a simple, family-run hotel in a converted canal house in the centre of town and makes for a well located, and reasonable break.
