Where to stay in Amsterdam – The Neighborhoods
Amsterdam is located in the North-East of the Netherlands. It is a great city for exploring, for culture, and food. You already know this, right?

Amsterdam is fairly small, yet the neighborhoods are quite different. In our map you find all locations of the mention great hotels in Amsterdam.

Central public square and popular gathering place since the 17th-century, flanked by the Royal Palace. When looking for a boutique hotel in Amsterdam city centre, you should look in the area around Dam Square.

What is the best area to stay in Amsterdam?
The best area to stay in Amsterdam is the city center. It is the area within The Ring.
Amsterdam is divided into 8 districts, called stadsdelen (“city parts”). Personally, we also absolutely love Jordaan Area and Amsterdam Noord.
Truth be told, all areas in Amsterdam are unique. It does not matter as much in our opinion. If you are in town only for 1-2 days, then stay in the city center around Dam Square.

How many days do you need in Amsterdam?
3 days in Amsterdam would be solid to see the main sights and get a feeling for the city. The best would be 3-5 days. This gives you time to even explore the parks and surroundings.
Amsterdam has many beautiful towns nearby that are worth a visit. Personally, we enjoy Haarlem and its beach, and the neat city of Utrecht. Both cities are easy to reach by train in less than 30 minutes.
Visiting only for 1 or 2 days? Then we recommend to do your homework, meaning to prepare your sightseeing. In 2 days in Amsterdam we suggest:
- Anne Frank House
- Hop on a Canal Cruise
- Take an easy Bike Tour
With these 3 things to do, you will have an amazing time, covering the main experience we feel it takes to understand Amsterdam a bit better.

We suggest that you book 3 months in advance for the following seasons:
- Mid-March to Mid-May tulip season
- July and August high season
- Christmas-New Year period
Keep in mind, many cute and neat hotels in Amsterdam are actually small – we mean, really small. They only have a few rooms to book. The earlier you check, the more likely you can book the hotel you would enjoy most.
