If you’re in Amsterdam city centre for a romantic weekend or an all-out getaway, there are plenty of places to stay. The city’s hotel scene has seen dramatic improvements over the last few years with boutique and international brands opening their doors with modern designs that seamlessly incorporate historic buildings.

Experience a true historic landmark by staying at the Grand Hotel Amstel, an opulent canal-side mansion whose opulent facade and soaring archways give off a timeless vibe. Or, for an extra special treat, check out the W Amsterdam.

This modern hotel in a former telephone exchange offers excellent value in town, boasting 14 meeting rooms and convenient access to both the business district and Dam Square (among other attractions). If you’re here for business purposes, take advantage of free WiFi and use their convenient desk to get some work done.

Zoku, a Dutch brand with plans to revolutionize the hotel industry worldwide, offers budget travelers an affordable yet stylish option. Their first location on Weesperstraat in Amsterdam’s Hermitage district sits midway between Hermitage and Artis Zoo and was designed with both social aspects in mind – communal working spaces, launderette facilities and even a “Community Manager” who will assist guests in finding their way around.

For those seeking more space, V Frederiksplein offers spacious and modern rooms just a short walk from Museumplein. Alternatively, guests can opt for an apartment with its own kitchen and dining area.
