Amsterdam currently has the most expensive hotels per square foot in all of Europe. Even the hostels there are VERY expensive when compared to hostels in other countries. I was just looking for a cheap place close to the city center. And this is what I found on Travelocity. I ended up getting a room for like 75Euro, which is... More

The reception is set in a side alley which was quaint. A very small reception area and we were greeted in a friendly manor, very much a backstreet hotel. Our twin room was accessed by VERY steep stairs, the room and ensuite were very clean but lack of air conditioning made for an uncomfortable night's sleep. The hotel was adequate... More

Hotel is in the perfect location, close to bars, shops, red light and coffee shops and right by the station too. Rooms are tiny and crammed but it's a budget hotel what do you expect. Beds comfy, actual proper toilet roll!! Shower nice but tiny. Fresh towels every day, and staff very friendly and helpful. When we went into our... More

This place is good for anyone roughing it, such as students, stag/bachelor parties, single-sex groups. Worked out at 40 euros a night each, best on-the-day price we found in Central Amsterdam. It's clean but not romantic, dont come here with your partner unless he/she can rough it too. Inside is a maddening maze of corridors, stairwells and ladders - like... More

the bad reviews received by this hostel are really quite unfair. when we arrived the staff upgraded us to an apartment room, free of charge and let us check in hours early! they were also wonderful at recommending things to do and they stored our luggage for us after our stay. the hostel is in an absolutely ideal location, right...

This hotel is in a really convenient location central to all the main attractions in Amsterdam, just a few minute walk from central station and where most of the walking tours start. The staff was not very helpful in terms of recommending things to do or see in the city. Rooms don't have AC and with the windows open it... More

I have never had such a bad sleep as I did here, the rooms had no cooling and got very very hot, even hotter than outside with the window open. The hotel was also smack dab in the corner of two very busy streets all night you will hear people outside very clearly, no matter what day of the week.... More

This hotel is right smack dab in the center of Amsterdam. The view is right over the busy central area, looking over Central Station. It is right near great restaurants and walking distance from pretty much anything you need. The rooms are small and easy for sharing in groups with bunk beds. We had a shower in our room and...

A very central budget hotel with a touch of luxury, a very clean hotel right where you need to be in the heart of things. clean rooms and very pleasant helpful staff, book in advance to get the best rate, well worth a look

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
