Best cheap hotels in Amsterdam
From capsule hotels to dorm rooms, affordable guesthouses to suburban hotels, Amsterdam has covered every base for travellers on a small budget.
A few nights at Ecomama are well suited to solo backpackers looking for homely and affordable dorm rooms with plenty of stylish spaces for socialising. If you're after a reasonably priced double room, staying a little outside of the city centre will get you the best value for money. Try the €80 double rooms at Hotel Van Gogh out for size.

Best 5-star hotels in Amsterdam
Contemporary design, traditional features, relaxing spas, Michelin-starred restaurants – you name it, a 5-star hotel in Amsterdam has got it.
For the ultimate grandeur, the Sofitel delivers French elegance, historic charm and unbeatable seafood. Hotel Pulitzer, on the other hand, exudes 21st-century refinement with soft features and plenty of modern art, while still being housed in an 18th-century canal-side property.
What's more, if you're looking for 5-star luxury with a difference, try the Japanese-inspired Hotel Okura where an indoor garden, heated pool and five restaurants, which share four Michelin stars, await you.

Best boutique hotels in Amsterdam
Boutique hotels are what Amsterdam is all about: being that little bit different, that little bit more creative and that little bit more exciting.
You'll find boutique hotels around every corner in Amsterdam. Breitner House, which was once the dwelling of a renowned Dutch artist, is one of the most luxurious boutiques in the city, as is Kamer 01, which sits in a converted 16th-century canal house. Or, perhaps you'd rather stay in a very swanky, converted prison?
Best cool hotels in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is one of the hottest travel locations in the world right now, so it makes sense that there are some ultra-hip hotels in the city too.
Creative types are drawn here, and with them come a myriad of unique concepts. The eco-friendly Hotel Jakarta, complete with its indoor garden, recently arrived in Amsterdam, along with Hotel De Hallen sitting in a former train depot and the Inntel Hotel whose higgledy-piggledy exterior you'll have no problem finding.

Alternate Amsterdam accommodation options
It's always worth checking out Airbnb or Stayz to see what they have to offer in Amsterdam. While they might not provide the same artsy backdrops and kooky designs, you'll generally get more for your money especially if you're travelling in a larger group. We found a few private rooms for around the €55 mark.
With a push for more eco-friendly accommodation and rising prices in the centre, more and more campsites are popping up around Amsterdam. Some are just a 20-minute tram ride from the centre. Camping Zeeburg is in one of the best locations for exploring the city, is open all year and offers prices as low as €7 per person per night.
