Tips for Accommodation in Amsterdam

Accommodation, directly on a canal - For many it is a dream

Admittedly, not for everyone the price is important. But almost always the accommodation makes up the largest part of the travel budget. With a little cleverness, you can save some money and invest it in an exciting city tour or a delicious meal.

  1. Do not stay directly in the center - One thing is clear: the closer to the center, the more expensive the accommodation. Amsterdam has a super streetcar network and great bike paths. So rather stay a little outside and treat yourself to a nicer room. Our tips for this: the Jordaan, the area around the Vondelpark or the trendy district De Pijp.
  2. Use comparison portals - With a hotel search engine you can compare offers from hundreds of hotels in Amsterdam. You should always use the search filters. For example, you can sort by the lowest price or preferred district. We can recommend the following portals:,
  3. Consider an alternative place to stay - Does it always have to be a hotel? We say no! Many hostels offer comfortable double rooms with private bathroom. If you are more than two people, you can share a vacation apartment or even a houseboat. This is usually much cheaper.
  4. Be flexible with travel time - Avoid long weekends, bridge days, public holidays and school vacations. On these days, accommodation in Amsterdam is significantly more expensive than usual. On the other hand, if you arrive in mid-February, for example, during the week, you can get a top hotel at a bargain price.
  5. Save with coupons and deals -'s Deals Page is a great source of bargains. We also regularly post special offers and current coupon codes on our Amsterdam Deals page.
