Some opinions about places to stay in Amsterdam:
"You'll probably want to stay in the ' Museum Quarter', the area around the van Gogh museum and the Concertgebouw. It's a quiet, upscale residential neighbourhood just south of the city center, a 10-15 minute walk from the Leidseplein."
"Haarlemmerstraat. On the edge of the lovely Jordaan area, Haarlemmerstraat perfectly balances being lively and interesting with being local and distinctive. And it's very close to Central Station, Dam Sq etc. There are a few hotels on the street."
"Joordan. This is the best part of Amsterdam to stay in... quaint, quiet, away from the tourists. It all depends on what you want though. If you'd rather be high as a kite, eating space cakes until you puke and fondling prostitutes, then you may be better off elsewhere."
"Leidseplein is the apex of Amsterdam. Call it the Market/Powell area of Amsterdam. Close to the big hotels, major tram transfer point(overstoppen) VondelPark, the Casino, and just a few blocks from Museumplein...The good: EVERYTHING is right there."
Sofitel The Grand Amsterdam: "Stayed here for 4 days and I can say that the hotel is an oasis in the busy and touristy area. The Sofitel is within walking distance of the central train station as well as the Dam area."
Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam: "We found the hotel to be in a wonderful position, it is a 5 min walk from the Central Station and a 10/15 minutes wander down to Dam Square. This meant that it was really close to town at the same time as being a little out of the way so not too busy. It was a truly relaxing stay and such a memorable place."
Marriott Amsterdam: "I enjoyed my stay in the Amsterdam Marriott. It is super close to many downtown locations. It is easy to walk from the hotel to many shops, restaurants, museums, and the Heineken Experience. It is easy to take the train to Lelylaan from the Airport, and Tram 1 from Lelylann to the hotel."
The Toren: "The location is excellent: overlooking Keisergracht canal, a short walk from the Anne Frank House, Nieuw Kerke, the Jordaan neighborhood with terrific restaurants and shopping, and a key tram line. We absolutely loved this place!"
Hotel Estherea: "Excellent small hotel loaded with character. Better than many of the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" we have used in the past. Perfect location on a quiet canal, but near restaurants and a block from the tram stop, 2 blocks from a central street and 3 blocks from central Dam Square."
Banks Mansion: "Lovely art-deco hotel, well located, excellent accommodations and facilities, efficient and friendly staff. Would stay here again and will recommend to anyone I know who is going to Amsterdam!"
Ambassade Hotel: "Location is superb - 15 minutes walk from anywhere you might want to go, but very quiet and very picturesque. One of the best hotels of any class we have stayed in for years. I cannot think of a single criticism!"
Hotel Seven one Seven: "This is a delightful hotel, situated in a sumptuous, historic canal house on Prinsengracht - a grand canal lined with splendid houses and funky bars and cafes. We were 2 tram stops - or an easy walk - from the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam's most impressive art gallery). 717 is a peaceful place; glorious decor and serene classical music combine to ensure a tranquil ambience throughout."
Moevenpick Hotel: "The place is very beautiful, clean, close to Potsdamer Platz and very confortable with public transports - S-bahn and U-bahn just one step away. The room was simply perfect and I had one of the best breakfast ever. Definitely a place to enjoy and to come back."
Radisson Blue Hotel: "First time in Amsterdam and this hotel was great. Our room was spacious and clean. Hotel was walking distance to red light district - a must see for first time visitors, shopping, museums and restaurants. Just be careful of bicycles they are everywhere."
Hotel Heemskerk: "Small hotel with a great location, right behind the concert hall in Museumplein, quiet street, very close to Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Norman and Sonja are wonderful hosts, genuine and welcoming. They made the stay perfect for us."
Conscious Hotel Museum Square: "My partner and I stayed here for one night only but it was definately the best sleep of our trip. In the meseum quarter, its great for museums and a short walk to one of the central squares for cafes, bars and resturants."
Ibis Amsterdam City Stopera: "I also the position of the hotel. We had a canal view on our room and the hotel was 10 minuted walkind distance from the center of entertainment in Amsterdam. Very convenient. I would definitely recommend it to friends and will stay there again next time I stay in Amsterdam."
Mercure Amsterdam Arthur Frommer: "This hotel is a hidden gem in Amsterdam. Great location away from the bustle of the city but very close to the main museums and other attractions with tram stop close by. Great spot in Amsterdam."
Misc Eatdrinksleep: "Hotel is in a great location. Near the Red Light District, but is very safe. We had an excellent stay and we'll definitely be returning there when we next visit Amsterdam."
Hotel Nadia: "I had read lots of reviews of other places to stay in Amsterdam and I am grateful that I settled on Hotel Nadia. Compared to the price of hotels in Amsterdam, I think you can't beat the value for money."
