The 7 Best Hotels for Families in Amsterdam
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 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.
