The Best Hotels in Amsterdam Noord

Culture-conscious visitors seeking a different aspect of Amsterdam should turn their backs on the tourist-crammed city centre and cross the IJ to discover the best hotels in Noord. This former industrial quarter, once home to giant shipyards, has become the city's hippest creative neighbourhood.

The iconic, 20-storey A'DAM Toren is Noord's anchor. This city in the sky is home to nightlife venues, eateries, a panoramic rooftop deck - complete with revolving restaurant, a terrifyingly vertiginous swing and breathtaking sunset views - and an ultra-cool hotel.

With its happening galleries, artists' studios, Europe's largest flea market, music venues and attractions including the EYE cinema museum and a dazzling new museum of street art, Noord is a destination in its own right. But it's also an edgy base from which to explore and anyone choosing one of the best places to stay in Noord will find the city centre's top attractions easy to reach, with free ferries to Amsterdam Centraal Station and a new metro line which whisks you to the city centre in minutes.
