As a haven for backpackers, there is an abundance of hostels providing cheap accommodation for those on a tight budget but there is also a vast array of bed & breakfasts, guest houses and 3-to 5-star hotels.
The range of accommodation types is also quite flabbergasting – among the properties now serving as hotels you’ll find schools, boats, banks, brothels, canal houses and stately homes. You’ll also find all the big hotel brands in Amsterdam including InterContinental, Sofitel, Hitlon, Moevenpick and NH Hotels as well as a stack of world-class independent boutique hotels.
Most hotels are within a short walk of a tram or bus stop to the main area of Amsterdam, so sometimes it is cheaper to stay at a hotel in the outskirts and travel into the tourist hotspots.
