Best areas to stay in Amsterdam

We will be in Amsterdam from July 18-23,2014 and I would like to know the best areas to stay in for a family of four. We are open to either a hotel or a condo, don't mind walking or riding bikes but want to be in a safe area. We are not opposed to staying in high tourist areas like Dam square. Also, any ideas on where to stay? Any advice would be appreciated!

My humble advice would be: stay in De Pijp close to Heinekenplein and Albert Cuyp Market! Easy to reach (from CS: tram 4, 16, 24 or 25 is a 10' ride and will give you a nice view over the city center). De pijp has 100s nice small restaurants and cafees with terrace, and its non-touristic. so much better and affforbable food. From that area its just 10 till 15 minutes by foot to the main squares like Leidse, Rembrandt or Museum Square. And also Vondelpark, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Heineken Brewery are all very close. I agree with mausgrass. You can easily Book and apartment on airbnb, booking or any other website.

Can anyone recommend a rental flat in the central canal belt in Amsterdam? We are two adults, not ok with multiple floor walk-up, there for a week in June.

Thanks.

Please provide exact dates (no sense in sending you a link to a flat that is already booked) and your budget. Keep in mind that you are already late for June.

@shrcm, doesn't Airbnb have the option to search for ground floor apartments? And reviews to help you choose a good one.

You can request an elevator as an "amenity" but there is nowhere to request ground floor. If one does tick off elevator, results will ONLY show flats with elevators.
