Amsterdam is a bustling, many-faceted location and tourism makes up a large part of that, so it’s not surprising that the city offers accommodation options ranging from luxury right down to cheap as chips, so there are plenty of choices for your group regardless of your budget or requirements.
At the luxury end the NH Hotel brand colonises the streets of the Dutch Capital with its smart, comfortable hotels spread throughout the city, so you can choose to situate yourselves wherever suits you best. One of our customers’ top choices is the France Hotel, located right in the city centre. The hotel is highly rated for its friendly staff, stylish, clean and comfortable rooms, and excellent breakfast which is included in the price of your room. It has an Irish pub on site, and is just minutes away from many of Amsterdam’s top attractions, so it’s not hard to see why this one is a winner.
In the mid-range, Motel One belies its functional name and offers comfort, amenities and an enviable location next to public transport links, at a fraction of the price of some of the more central hotels.
Like your hotels like you like your flights – cheap, fast and simple? EasyHotel could be the place for you. Smart and functional, EasyHotel isn’t big on lavish extras or entertainment, but it’s moderately priced and located in the vibrant, bohemian De Pijp district which means cafes, pubs and plenty of fun right on your doorstep.
If you’re blowing the budget on activities and want enough cash left for booze, check out our range of hostel accommodation. Hostels in Europe are a far cry from the tired, uncomfortable dorm rooms you might expect. Meininger Hostels offer the convenience of dormitory accommodation with an ultra-modern twist, and offer on-site facilities including a bar and shared kitchen worthy of IKEA. We have two branches to choose from in the city, the most popular with our customers is the Meininger West which is ideally located right next to the train station.
Another big European hostel brand is Generator. Also an LNOF customer favourite, Generator is located in the Eastern district near the Zoo, and has stylish décor along with a café and not one but two bars, so the party doesn’t have to stop when you get back to your accommodation.
Amsterdam is a big city with a number of distinct districts, each with its own vibe and attractions. Wherever you choose to base yourselves, there will inevitably be an element of travel required to get from place to place. Taxis are expensive and notoriously unreliable in Amsterdam, but to compensate there is an excellent public transport system with trams and buses in plentiful supply, and walking is relatively safe as long as you stick to the beaten track. Ask for advice from your LNOF sales rep if you’re keen on being near a particular attraction and we’ll advise on the best location for your hen party.
When you visit a thriving tourist hotspot such as Amsterdam it’s always best to check in advance to make sure there is space for you on your chosen weekend. We have a reserved room allocation in all of our hotels, apartments and hostels so there’s every chance we’ll be able to accommodate you, but in a busy city like Amsterdam it’s always worth checking your dates don’t clash with a particularly busy weekend for the city. Dates when Amsterdam sees a rise in visitors include: Kings Day, Ascension Day, Pentecost, the Dekmental Festival, and Pride Weekend, so be sure to seek advice from your LNOF sales rep to ensure there are no worries about missing out.
