Amsterdam is so much more than tulips, bicycles and the Red Light District, though it does have those things in abundance. This city built on canals has diverse neighbourhoods, sated in culture and history.
Whether you’re in search of the bohemian, free-thinking Amsterdam or a perfect destination for book-lovers, you’ll find a district here to suit you. The compact centre is easy to navigate, whether by bike, on foot or on the water – and each area has a good range of budget accommodation to choose from.
The main tourist destination, the central area of Amsterdam attracts tourists to its main squares – Dam and Nieuwmarkt. Dam has the best of the historic buildings, whilst Nieuwmarkt offers Holland’s take on Chinatown. The Old Centre is also where the Red Light District can be found, but the bars, cafes and restaurants of the area nowadays attract a wider range of visitors than the traditional stag party gangs. The so-called ‘New Side’ of Amsterdam’s centre is relative to the ancient history of this place – it is still full of buildings dating back to the medieval times. However, it provides a quieter and more intellectual pace of life compared to the Old Side and is a book-lover’s paradise. It’s home to the Amsterdam Museum and Spui Square, which boasts three large bookstores. Plenty of budget accommodation can be found here.
Once a traditional, working-class neighbourhood, Jordaan has been completely regenerated and is now a very popular district with young, trendy things. It still retains a bohemian spirit, attracting artists of all types and keeping up a long tradition of folk music. It is the perfect place to explore art galleries, boutique restaurants and quirky markets - and it is just a five-minute walk to the main sights of the Old Centre. Hostel and budget accommodation can be found here, as well as mid-range hotels.
This upmarket area surrounding the Old Centre boasts some impressive architecture and is also home to the Anne Frank Museum, so it’s the perfect neighbourhood for those seeking to soak up the history of Amsterdam. The Negen Straatjes – nine streets sandwiched between two canals – provide an alternative shopping destination with plenty of independent fashion boutiques to choose from. By night, this is a main clubbing area, and with plenty of well-priced hotels, you won’t have far to stumble back to in the wee hours of the morning.
Why not make the most of Amsterdam’s canals and choose a houseboat stay? Providing easy access to just about any district you choose, houseboats offer competitive prices compared with mid-range and budget hotels – as well as a unique experience. Some houseboats are on a B&B basis, suitable for solo travellers or couples, whilst others are available as self-catering ‘apartment’ boats, good for larger groups.

joycebarri My husband and I treated ourselves to a short break in Amsterdam to celebrate our wedding anniversary and chose Dianne's B&B because it had such good reviews. We were not disappointed. The accommodation is delightful - much more spacious than it appeared from the photographs, and beautifully presented. Dianne is a lovely, warm, friendly lady, who made us feel really welcome when we arrived, asking us what we would like her to buy for our breakfasts, showing us places to visit and recommending some fantastic restaurants - she was even kind enough to book a table for us. (And do go the Ko Chong Thai, its fabulous, and the cafe Dianne recommended for the best apple cake is also not to be missed!!) The apartment is about a 15-20 minute walk from Central Station and easy to find. The Jordaan is a residential area, so free from riotous crowds and very pretty; it is near enough to most places of interest to be able to walk there, but there is public transport nearby if you prefer. We actually walked everywhere, it is such a beautiful city we didn't want to miss anything! It was lovely to come back in the evening and be able to sit on the veranda surrounded by gorgious plants and gardens and relax with a chilled glass of wine. Wonderful!! I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough, and we will definitely return. And Dianne - the Delpht has pride of place on our shelf - thankyou!
brian-milg The noise from the street may annoy someone who stays here but everything else is just right. The stairs are steep as well but that is an Amsterdam thing. I have stayed in many Amsterdam hotels and this was my best experience. I travel on business and often go to Amsterdam and I certainly will try here first when I go to Amsterdam again.
s.pye499 We stayed for 4 nights in this Inn,10 mins walk to the tourist centre,but far enough out to be quiet.clean,simple straight forward,a two bedroom facility,believe could sleep up to 6,both rooms double,but make sure you specify you want a double or two singles.Met at beginning of stay,and seen at end,no receptionist.The guy who meets and greets is friendly and helpful,gives you his number if any probs.Sorted us out bike hire,the only way to get around Amsterdam if your adventurous. Met the owner by chance,real nice guy,just likes the idea of letting his house out to holiday makers.No kitchen,loads of eating places in town and locally.Perfect for family,or group of friends wanting very reasonably priced nice place to stay.In residential area with residential neighbours above and below and either side,so if your'e in to late night partying would cause issues and possibly ruin a good little place to stay.Steve and Gemma.
Tim.Moran This is dead set the best hostel i have ever stayed in. I have been traveling for the past two years and this hostel is my favorite. The staff are FANTASTIC and hospitable with great knowledge of the area. Beds are extremely comfortable and rooms are warm as :) would recommend anyone to stay here 10/10 place :) thanks cocomama for the wonderful experience
plt1963 Great location and fantastic value for money. Staff extremely accommodating. Breakfast was exceptional (not cooked). Facilities basic and rooms tiny. If over 6ft tall it would be problematical but in truth it is a ship so hardly surprising. All in all it couldn't be better for the money.
matthew_do I booked the Hotelboot Angeline for a group on a long weekend, looking for a good central location, at a good price with flexibility on access. The hotel certainly exceeded expectations, moored next to the Nemo centre, location is perfect a short ten minute walk to the Central Station and the night time 'attractions'. The hotel itself given its a boat is pretty comfortable, very clean with a friendly atmosphere. Breakfast in the morning is adequate with planty of choice of cereal, cold meets and cheeses and freshly brewed coffee. I would thoroughly recommend the Hotelboot Angeline for those of you looking for a short visit or a group weekend away with a central location. Thanks!
keith.muti Very comfortable quiet non-smoking hotel. 5 minutes from Leidesplein. Walking distance to anywhere in city centre. Good breakfast up to 9.30am. Single rooms are small but that's to be expected for this city. Good value.

Peter52p this hostel is about 15 km from centre of Amsterdam but this was not a problem as they have an hourly shuttle which takes you to local station and then it is about 15 min on metro to central station and about 30 min to airport. staff are very friendly and have good knowledge of many languages and on how to find a large number of interesting places to visit, site and facilities are very clean and well laid out and very good value for the money, they have on-site computers and wire less connection if you have your own laptop. also they have a very well equipped kitchen with free coffee and tea if you wish overall I would strongly recommend and would use again. so enjoy with regards Peter Hallett
stephanie- The cabins were a little bit hot during night time given the hot weather...but otherwise it was nice, clean and had a very friendly staff with a great breakfast buffet...I would go back again...
deborahvai Hi David, I really felt like at home in your boat. The wee captain's suite sent me straight back into the seventies while the Talking Heads tape made my ears wide open again, or was it the mushrooms? Anyway, I'll never forget the conversation I had with a heron that patrols the canal at night. She told me from all flowers, she prefers the ones that grow in the dirt. Good luck!
