    Staying in a Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam

    Amsterdam Accommodation
    It’s hard to find a bad view in beautiful Amsterdam.

    No doubt about it, Amsterdam is a cool and classy city with a lot of variety. Bed and breakfasts follow the same diversity as the city, so you can find historic-themed rooms, luxurious and high-class options, or cosy budget rooms!

    Bed and breakfasts are also spread out around Amsterdam, so you’ll find options both right in the city centre or a bit removed if you’d rather stay out of the main tourist scene.

    Either way, bed and breakfasts have a lot more character than the typical hotel, and since many of them are family-owned you’ll get to interact with locals and ask questions about your trip.

    What to Look for in a Bed and Breakfast

    Depending on your reason for visiting Amsterdam and your own personal travel style, you can narrow your focus based on room size and amenities. Most bed and breakfasts have rooms to comfortably accommodate one or two people, but some also have arrangements for larger groups or families.

    Whether you’re looking for a private garden, some air-conditioned accommodation, free private parking or amazing river and city views. You will be sure to find a guest house or B&B that covers what you’re after.

    The best bed and breakfasts in Amsterdam offer breakfast included in the room price, though at some spots it’s a separate charge, so make sure you know what to expect before booking!

    Good search platforms include Airbnb and Booking.com where you can check on these details and more like when reception hours are and what type of security features are in place at the property.

    Note that some B & B’s get booked up in summer so depending on what time of year you visit Amsterdam, you may need to book ahead.
