Cheap Hotels in Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, has something to offer any visitor. Whether you're looking for historic architecture, art museums, exciting nightlife, or just relaxing strolls beside the city's canals, Amsterdam is a great holiday destination. A trip to Amsterdam doesn't have to be unaffordable, either; there are a wide variety of Hostelbookers. These include comfortable modern hotels and hostels located within a short walking distance of transport links and the major tourist areas.

the Greenhouse Effect hotelThe Old Centre is the city's oldest district, housing the Royal Palace. It is also home to many of the city's museums, including the Historisch Museum and the Allard Pierson Museum, the archaeological museum of the University of Amsterdam, as well as more light-hearted attractions such as the Marijuana Museum and the Medieval Torture Museum. Because the central rail station is in this area, the Old Centre is often the first stop for travellers who have recently arrived in Amsterdam. If you're looking for an affordable place to staywithin a short walk of the sights of the Old Centre, try the Greenhouse Effect hotel, located over a bar/coffee shop on Warmoesstraat; this modern hotel is popular with young people and holiday groups.

France Hotel - AmsterdamJust to the north of the Old Centre, also within a short walk of the rail station, lies the waterfront district. This area is near the red light district for which Amsterdam is famous, as well as abounding in bars, nightclubs and other forms of nightlife. Affordable hotels in the waterfront area include the France Hotel, a modern hotel on OudezijdsKolk. If you want to stay near to Amsterdam's nightlife and rail transport, this hotel offers convenient walking access to many of the area's attractions.

Hortus Hotel - AmsterdamOne of Amsterdam's best-known regions, the Canal Ring, surrounds the Old Centre. The canals are lined with the houses of the wealthy 17th-century merchants who made Amsterdam one of Europe's most important ports; if you love history and architecture, the Canal Ring should be your first stop in Amsterdam. The Hortus Hotel, located in Parklaan on the eastern edge of the Canal Ring, offers easy access to this historic district while still being within a 15-minute walk of the rail station and city centre.

Hotel Anne Marie - AmsterdamArt lovers will also want to seek out Museumplein, the home of several of the city's museums, including the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, as well as the city's main concert hall, the Concertgebouw. Near Museumplein is the Vondelpark, a large landscape park with its own open-air theatre and museum; the Vondelpark is ideal for walks, cycling and picnics. A combination of small hotel and hostel, the Hotel Anne-Marie offers quick access to Museumplein and the surrounding area.

These are just a few examples of the many attractions which make Amsterdam a wonderful destination for many different kinds of holiday. You can see all of this vibrant city's many sights for less than you might expect by choosing one of these or there are many other cheap hotels in Amsterdam recommended on the HostelBookers.com website.
