Where To Stay In Amsterdam

Aug 19, 2008
If you have been planning a holiday for a long time then the most important thing to agree on, aside from where you are going to go on holiday, is where you are going to stay for the time that you are there. The best way to see what a city has on offer in terms of accommodation is to scour the Internet for holiday accommodation sites. These websites specialize in specific cities so you can be rest assured that wherever you stay will be a place you will be happy with.

You do not want to arrive at your hotel in Amsterdam to find that it is not what you intended. Most travel websites carry pictures of the accommodation on offer you will be able to see exactly what you are getting yourself into.

You should also keep in mind the type of holiday you want when booking accommodation. Amsterdam is a city that is filled with so many different facets that you will have to choose your accommodation wisely.

If you are looking for a holiday that is filled with as much night life as possible then it would be in your best interests to find a hotel which is situated in close walking distance to the hub of the city. By hub, we mean the area that is renowned for the best restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Although Amsterdam is blessed with abundant nightlife, there are some areas that are more renowned for this than others.

On the other hand, if you are more into touristy things like museums and flower parks then you may wish to find yourself a hotel. Most hotels will arrange day tours to see the different historical areas of the city so you do not have to worry too much about where you stay in relation to everything else. The area you cover will be quite vast, but you will be in the company of a tour guide or a coach driver.

Having a candle lit dinner on the canals at sunset is a must no matter who you are. Even if you plan on partying up a storm in Amsterdam, you have to experience at least this. The cruises will not take up too much of your precious time so you will not miss too much of the famous Amsterdam nightlife.

When booking your accommodation, you can choose between hotels, backpackers or self-catering holiday rentals. It all depends on your budget and how much privacy and freedom you wish to have while you are there. The best place to visit in terms of nightlife is Nomads. This is the current toast of the town and will lead you to party places you have never experienced before. Just make sure you know where you are staying before trying to return home at 4am.
