Budget Hotels in the centre of Amsterdam

Perhaps contrary to popular belief, there are a lot of budget hotels in the centre of Amsterdam. Most eye catching is probably the hotels on Damrak. There are however some nicer options. Take for instance Villa Borgmann. This old mansion is located next to the Vondelpark so close to the Museumplein and to the city centre. This hotel offers rooms in the mansion for rates as low as €30. Another nice hotel with good prices is Hotel Plantage. This budget hotel is located next to Artis Zoo in a very nice upscale neighborhood right east of the centre.

Sleep on a boat

A great concept for a budget hotel is sleeping on a boat. In the IJ, the waters surrounding Central Station, there are various boats where you can get a room for a good price. The largest is situated on the other side of the river, in Amsterdam North at the NDSM pier. The Amstel Botel offers clean rooms and is conveniently located next to one of the ferries to the center of Amsterdam. Another good option is the Hotelboot Angeline. This authentic Amsterdam boat is located next to the NEMO, close to Central Station. When walking in Amsterdam you’ll notice that a lot of locals sleep on large flat boats that are moored next to the Amstel and some of the canals. This is exactly such a boat, adding a genuine Amsterdam feel to your trip. Prices range from €30 to €50.

Budget Hotels in the other neighborhoods of Amsterdam

If you’re looking for a bit more luxury but still want to keep the price for a night’s sleep as low as possible, staying in one of the budget hotels surrounding the Amsterdam Center is a great option. Just make sure you are located right next to a metro or tram stop, and you’ll be able to travel to the hot spots within 20 minutes.

One of our favorites is the Victorie Hotel. This budget hotel is in the Southside of Amsterdam. It’s not even that far from the center, you can walk to Leidseplein in about 15 minutes. There is also a tram which will take you to Dam Square in 10 minutes. The neighborhood itself is quite nice, with authentic Amsterdam architecture from the 1920’s and 1930’s. Hotel Victorie offers rates as low as €25.
