The 15 Best Value Hotels in Amsterdam

Hotel Van de Vijsel

A stay in ever-popular Amsterdam doesn't always come cheap, but pick your hotel with care and there are bargains to be found, even in top neighbourhoods like Amsterdam Centrum and the Canal Belt.

Our hotel experts have scoured the city to bring you a concise collection of Amsterdam's best value stays selected on their design, location, amenities and (of course) price tag. Find plenty to choose from whether you are looking for a hip base to work and play from or you're travelling with the family.
