We have stayed in Hotel V for 5 days while in A'dam and were not disappointed. Although on the map the hotel seems a little outside of the city, it is actually a mere 5-10 ride on the tram to the actual centre. The benefit being a quiet neighbourhood with a supermarket near by and some homely restaurants just round the corner.
Unique Quality: Although the facilities at the hotel are basic i.e. no pool/gym etc (but hey, who needs them in A'dam anyway), the rooms are nice and fairly spacious and the breakfast was a typical dutch grub which offers enough option for any taste and preference.
The hotel selection in Amsterdam is quite polarized; there are really good and expensive hotels, and really bad and inexpensive hotels. Trying to find a hotel that does not cost a fortune, and has good rooms, decent breakfast, and nice location can be hard.
Hotel V somewhat fits the bill. It is a design hotel, in other words, a lot of time and energy has been put to the surroundings, rooms, and generic atmosphere. Despite being in a crummy neighbourhood, Hotel V has been able to execute this pretty well.
Our room was small, as most hotel rooms tend to be in Amsterdam -- there are huge ones, too, I've even slept in such a room. The room looked way bigger in the pictures, so be warned. The breakfast was excellent, and service in general was nice. Free WLAN is always a good perk.
The hotel location is not the best, it is a bit out of the city centre, though near the museum sector. Tram is a good option, and it takes about fifteen minutes to reach the central station. We had booked a bike special, and rode around the town for a day -- excellent way to see the city, and also get to the places.
Hello, My husband and I are planning 3 nights over New Year's in Amsterdam. We want to stay at a nice budget hotel - my only requirements are that it's a private room with a private bath and is clean. I'd like to be in central Amsterdam. Can you recommend a website to book hotels in Amsterdam or even certain hotels that meet my criteria. I'm concerned that some of the hotel booking sites may quote me a cheaper price, but could arrive at the hotel and have no reservation or a much higher rate. Thank you!
Act fast, because traditionally there will be many visitors like you and it's a kind of high season (high prices as well).
I recommend you look just outside the canal beld, around the Vondelpark or in the museum quarter.
There are many smaller hotels, offering what you are looking for.
Have a look at http:/www.visitamsterdam.nl
and goto look&book - Accommodation; at advanced searh you can fill in your preferences (like 3 star hotel, private bathroom etc..).
Central Amsterdam will be noisy at NYE: many people on the streets, Loud music at the DAM square, constant fireworks.
BTW No public transport on NYE from 8PM to an hour after midnight.
check The Friendship BnB
more info in the hotel section on my amsterdam page,
it's reasonable price and very good location
I can highly recommend the Canal House Hotel, check out their website www.canalhouse.nl It's a delightful hotel in a brilliant location near the Anne Frank house, the Jordaan area and the Westerkerk, only a short walk from Dam Sq.
Rooms are about 150 euros including breakfast, not terribly cheap I know but budget hotels in Amsterdam can be real fleapits so it's worth paying a bit extra if you're only going for a few days. New Years is a real blast in Amsterdam but you'd need to book right away as it's a very popular time.
Hope you have a great time,
My boyfriend and I are traveling to Amsterdam for New Years. I had a hard time finding a room recently but I finally booked at Hotel Arena. It has some bad reviews but we're not incredibly picky.
There are so many nice hotels in Amsterdam. If you look for a really nice one got to the NL Hotel (http://www.noovee.com/index.php?id=220) or the Hotel V (http://www.noovee.com/index.php?id=223). They are modern, clean, central and very friendly.
