Before you decide on your hotel, here is a list of Amsterdam city districts and neighborhoods. Use it as a guide to help you pick the right place to stay.

City districts and neighborhoods

1. Amsterdam Centrum (Amsterdam Center)

The city center includes the world-famous historical Canal Ring, JordaanDe 9 Straatjes (The 9 Streets), Spiegelkwartier (mirror quarter), Red Light District and Nieuwmarkt.

2. West

The West consists of Westerpark, Oud-West, De Baarsjes and Bos en Lommer. Westerpark has lots of greenery, independent shops, and traditional brown cafés. Oud West is less touristy and has a range of café bars and restaurants.

Bos en Lommer and De Baarsjes – these are two districts to the west of the city with a young, hip and multicultural community.

3. Oost (East)

Oost is ethnically diverse Amsterdam East district with 19th-century buildings and ample shopping venues, restaurants, and bars. The neighborhood of Oostelijke Eilanden (Eastern Docklands) is between IJ and Amsterdam-Oost. This neighborhood has a combination of old warehouses and modern architecture.

4. Noord (North)

The IJ is another name for the Noord neighborhood, located across the river behind Amsterdam Centraal Station. A free ferry is available from Central Station to Noord. NSDM Wharf is also in Amsterdam north-west. It was a former shipyard on the banks of the River IJ but now it is rapidly expanding into a cultural hotspot of Amsterdam. It’s a super-cool neighborhood for festivals, exhibitions, and dance parties.

5. Zuid (South)

Zuid consists of Oud-Zuid and Zuideramstel. Oud Zuid is home to the world-famous museums, boutiques, manors, and Vondelpark.

De Pijp, the Latin Quarter and a Bohemian neighborhood is in the south too. It was home to the Amsterdam’s working-class, and in recent years has become the most vibrant and trendiest neighborhood. You’ll find Albert Cuypmarkt street market, the Heineken Brewery and Sarphtipark in De Pijp.

6. Nieuw (New West)

Geuzenveld-Slotermeer, OSdorp, and Slotervaart are part of the New West.

7. Zuidoost (Southeast)

Zuidoost is the cultural melting pot, convention and entertainment center of Amsterdam.

Less than $200 per room per night hotels in Amsterdam

1. The Hoxton Amsterdam

The Hoxton Amsterdam is the most impressive property to stay in if you like history and canal views. It is a group of five 17th century canal houses in De 9 Straatjes (The 9 Streets) part of Amsterdam Centrum.

2. A houseboat on Amstel

I stayed for a night in an Airbnb houseboat on Amstel River, moored next to Blauwbrug (Blue Bridge), behind the Nationale Opera & Ballet Theater in the Canal Ring area of Amsterdam Centrum. Highly recommended for anyone looking to experience Amsterdam’s canal lifestyle.

3. Bilderberg Hotel Jan Luyken

Located in the Museum Quarter, Oud Zuid neighborhood, Bilderberg Hotel Jan Luyken is just steps from Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. The Bilderberg Hotel consists of several 19th-century mansions on a tree-lined street. It is quiet and would be the best choice for anyone wanting to spend time visiting the museums and shopping in high-end shops.

4. ClinkNOORD

If you’re looking for a hotel in Amsterdam Noord (IJ) area, check out ClinkNOORD. It’s a short ferry ride from Amsterdam Central Station, across the IJ River. You can choose a private room with a bathroom or a bed in a dormitory with shared bathroom. ClinkNOORD is a hip place to relax, and it’s suitable for anyone looking to enjoy Amsterdam’s vibrant nightlife.

6. Hampton by Hilton Amsterdam

Located in Zuidoost (Southeast Amsterdam), Hampton by Hilton is a 10-minute train ride from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and is the best location for those attending a conference at the RAI Convention Centre. You can use your Hilton hotel points to book a room at the Hampton.

7. Hotel not Hotel

The artsy traveler would find Hotel Not Hotel the most appealing place to stay. Designed by Collaboration-O, a group of young designers from the Eindhoven Design Academy, guests have a choice of unique rooms like Amsterdam Tram Cart, Crow’s Nest, Crisis Free Zone, Casa No Casa and more.
