There are hundreds of hotels located across Amsterdam’s various districts, but for tourists wanting to explore around the canals and historic centre you should look for a city centre location.
You can find hotels for all budgets – at the luxury end there are hotels like the fantastic, luxurious De ‘Europe Amsterdam; a 5 star hotel set on the Amstel River, and a 10 minute walk from Dam Square.
The Radisson Blu Hotel is also at the high-end. It’s a 4 star hotel situated in a quieter street, only 7 minutes walk to Dam Square.
The building has an historic, grand feel to the outside with modern guest rooms inside.
There are many great budget hotels too if you want to save your money for shopping and sightseeing, or opt for the middle range and choose one of a number of 3 star hotels, an overview here.
