Find out where to stay in Amsterdam. In this article, we’ll give you all the information you need to choose the best location for your stay.

Tips for choosing the best accommodation in Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s tourist area isn’t that big, so the attractions are very concentrated. But the best place to stay is the central area, which will allow you to optimize your time by being even closer to the tourist attractions.

As the city and the hotels aren’t that big, we recommend booking in advance, as the best and cheapest places sell out quickly during the high season. And you should know that there are several tricks to saving money: booking a certain period in advance, comparing in several places, using filters…

Downtown Amsterdam

Our top tip is to use this Amsterdam Hotel Finder, because that’s how you’ll be able to find the stay of your dreams at the best price.

We always use (and recommend) the one in the link above. It’s the largest hotel booking site in the world, so you can negotiate unbeatable prices (and, of course, it’s safe). And there you can check out the opinions of tourists who have already stayed in the hotels, which helps a lot when comparing the options available. It also offers an essential benefit for your trip: free cancellation at most hotels.

Now on to the neighborhoods:

Jordaan area

The Jordaan area is a very nice place to stay in Amsterdam, romantic and a bit village-like. It lies within the tourist area and is full of charming streets and canals, as well as having a large number of art galleries, restaurants, stores and cafés.

This is a good option for those who want to be close to the tourist attractions, including walking distance from many of them, but not so much in the middle of the city’s hustle and bustle. As well as being a pleasant and charming area, it is close to the Anne Frank House, for example, which is now a museum and one of the main attractions there.
