The 11 Best Hotels for Families in Amsterdam

Hotel Twenty Eight

As a city, Amsterdam welcomes families – though the wares on show in some shop windows may inspire awkward questions from enquiring young minds. Families may find some hotels a bit cramped, especially those in converted old houses where space is at a premium. Not all hotels in older buildings have elevators, so getting to attic rooms is a chore with smaller children. However, in our collection of the best hotels for families in Amsterdam, you'll find spacious self-catering apartments near open-air markets where shopping is fun, family-sized suites, and luxury perks like pools. So why not browse through our list to start planning your next family getaway?

For self-catering

Yays Amsterdam Salthouse Canal

  • Dutch Masters is a chic city collection of luxury self-catering apartments. Interiors are based on famous Dutch artists and boast heritage features like detailed ceilings and large windows, as well as unique design pieces. With a central location, this is a luxurious option for families.
  • Yays Amsterdam Salthouse Canal is a contemporary hotel with self-contained apartments in Zeeheldenbuurt. Accommodation is sleek and stylish, offering separate living space, self-catering facilities, and groceries delivered to your door. Kids will love the option of staying in a houseboat.
  • Amsterdam Prince Island by Yays is a boutique hotel offering self-contained apartments on the canalside in Bickerseiland. The apartments are great for families or groups, with multiple, cosy bedrooms and separate living spaces, plus self-catering facilities.

For family suites

JL NO 76

  • Hotel JL NO76 is a chic modern hotel in a 19th-century townhouse on a residential street right in the heart of the city. A courtyard garden, honesty bar, and bike rental make this an easy city base, while families will benefit from the spacious family suites.
  • At Park Hotel Amsterdam spacious family suites are made for contemporary families with coffee machines, living areas, and a separate area to work. Well positioned between Leidseplein and Vondelpark you'll find the main attractions nearby and the property also boasts the famed MOMO restaurant.
  • Hotel Roemer is a simply styled boutique stay with a homely feel set in an 18th-century townhouse near Vondelpark. Spacious (for Amsterdam) family rooms feature a double bed and bunk beds plus there is a park nearby for kids to run around. With bikes to rent too, this is a quaint choice.

For the design

Mokum Suites

  • Families can rent both suites at Mokum Suites for a perfect home-away-from-home. The suites in a restored canal house share a kitchen and dining room meaning you'll have plenty of space. Pick this though for the design which is chic and modern without losing the heritage property's original charm.
