Wheelchair-accessible hotels?

My wife and I plan to travel to Amsterdam in May 2013 and wondered if anybody could provide advice regarding wheelchair accessible hotels?

I am a manual wheelchair user who can walk a little as long as I am aided by my able-bodied wife - we would like to stay somewhere fairly central, close to Dam Square or Leidseplein preferably as we both enjoy the nighlife on offer but, if possible, don't want to pay a fdortune for the experience.

Any advice woud be very much appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Juejosh is regular visitor to Amsterdam and on these forums and a wheelchair user. I am sure that she would not mind you sending here a message

www.tripadvisor.com/members-forums/juejosh

She probably has more relevant info about which hotels to stay at than I could give you.

Just in general though if you bid for a 4* or above on Priceline you will definately get a hotel with a lift and probably converted disabled facilities. Try to stay away from the canal ring as I imagine it could be difficult to push your wheelchair across cobbled streets.

Good luck

I suggest Priceline bidding all the time. Because I think it the best value by far.

But in your case I will suggest it even more.

You need a modern hotel with a good size room and a good size lift.

And in Amsterdam that can cost you a lot. But in this case will cost you very litte.

Take a look at our 181 page 4 star bidding thead. Or at least skim the last 15 pages or so.

If you bid zone 1 or 2 you should be able to get an upscale modern 4 or even a 5 star for the normal price of a 1 or 2 star.

The hotel will be well located within the centre.

Also look at the Top Question to the right dealing with cheap hotels. It will explain the PL NYOP system.

Here you go. You can see some of the hotels being won and the prices and dates as well.

There is also a 5 star bidding thread as well.

I'll second John's advice.

Budget hotels in Amsterdam pretty well all have no elevators and steep stairs. If you can secure a 4 or 5 star hotel you'll be guaranteed to have no problem. Using Priceline NYOP you should be able to pick a 4* up for 50-60 pounds per night.

In Booking.com you can do an advanced search for wheelchair accessible hotels. First do a normal search for your dates, then the advanced search via the tick boxes on the left.
