Mid range hotels

In Amsterdam, a hotel is considered mid range if the price for a double room is between €65 and €130. There is a seemingly unlimited amount of such hotels. They typically have 3 stars. All big brands like Best Western, Ibis, NH Hoteles, Novotel and Holiday Inn have one or more hotels in Amsterdam. There are also many locally operated hotels available. This page will give not give you all mid range hotels (click here if that’s what you’re looking for), but a carefully selected group of hotels we like ourselves.


Ibis Amsterdam

ibis hotelIbis is a French hotel chain with more than 1000 hotels. There are 5 Ibis hotels in Amsterdam. Three of those are right in the city center (Ibis Amsterdam Centre, Ibis Styles Amsterdam Centre and Ibis Stopera), one is located at the border of the centre and the south side (Ibis Styles Amsterdam Amstel) and one is located in the commercial area Westpoort (Ibis Amsterdam City West) . The latter is described on some travel websites as “only 10 minutes from the city center”. That’s probably when you travel by jet pack. In reality it is located about 20 minutes to the city center by bus. On foot it’s at least 45 minutes to the center.

Our favorite Ibis Hotel in Amsterdam is the Ibis Amsterdam Centre. This hotel claims to have the best location in Amsterdam, which is adjacent to Central Station. You will not find a cheaper hotel this close to Central Station. Ibis is known for it’s consistent quality because it’s nice no frills rooms are always clean and service is probably better than you would expect for the price you pay.

 Best Western

best western logoBest Western is the largest hotel chain in the world with over 4000 hotels. In Amsterdam there are 6 different Best Western hotels. Most are located in historical or old buildings and have a great atmosphere. The Best Western Dam Square Inn has the best location, it’s in a monumental alley right next to Dam Square. This is a good hotel to go to if you want to be very close to the action and appreciate a historical environment. If you get the right room you’ll have a view on the alley along the New Church. The rooms are big for such an old building in the center.

One of the best hotels in it’s category in Amsterdam is the Best Western Apollo Museumhotel. This beautiful somewhat Parisian building looks like a luxury hotel and is located in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Amsterdam, in the P.C. Hooftstraat right next to Museumplein. This is a real good option if you’re looking to visit the best known museums in Amsterdam such as the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh. The hotel is also very close to the Vondelpark.

Our last pick would be the Best Western Leidse Square hotel. This hotel is also located in the Museum Quarter, but a bit closer to the Leidsesquare. It’s a nice pieceful neighborhood yet close to the crazyness of the Leidsplein area. As most Best Western Hotels in Amsterdam, this hotel has modern rooms in an old building. It’s a great way to enjoy the city.

NH Hotels

nh hotels logoNH Hotels is a Spanish hotel chain with a lot of locations in Amsterdam. They currently operate 11 hotels around the city, all but 2 in the the center. NH Hotels acquired many classic Amsterdam hotels such as the Krasnapolsky on Dam Square and the Caransa Hotel on Rembrandtplein. The latter was bought from one of Amsterdam’s most famous old school real estate tycoons.  NH Hotels offer a bit more luxury than the average mid range hotel and some of them border on a full fledged luxury hotel. Here we focus on the mid range hotels.
