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 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?

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.
