Set inside a typical Dutch townhouse dating back to the 17th century and located near Amsterdam’s bustling Rembrandtplein plaza, this cosy B&B makes for an ideal home away from home for sightseers in the city. Its two guest rooms are spread over several floors and are accessible via a narrow staircase – a common feature in older Dutch townhouses. Once inside, guests have access to many mod-cons and there is plenty of space for dining, relaxation and sleep. Aside from the many restaurants, bars and clubs on Rembrandtplein, a number of other famous landmarks are located nearby, including Pathé Tuschinski cinema and the Skinny Bridge, which runs across the river Amstel.
Thanks to its charming guest rooms, excellent location near Centraal Station and affordable price bracket, De Baronie B&B ranks among the best spots in the inner-city for travellers working with a budget but who still value their privacy. Both guest rooms available at the B&B offer views across a nearby canal and are equipped with all the essentials, including double beds, TVs and refrigerators. The B&B stands close to many famous spots in Amsterdam’s city centre and attractions such as NEMO Science Museum, Oude Kerk and Dam Square.
Offering guests the opportunity to experience life in Amsterdam’s peaceful de Pijp neighbourhood, this charming B&B features 15 spacious rooms and apartments that are spread over several connected townhouses on the northwestern banks of the river Amstel. There’s a wide array of accommodation options available within this B&B, ranging from loft spaces that are perfect for couples to a basement room that receives plenty of light throughout the day. Breakfast is served across the street, inside a cosy café called Bij Paul that also functions as NINE(T)TEEN B&B’s reception.
This delightful spot in Amsterdam’s ever-popular (and madly photogenic) Nine Streets quarter boasts five individually designed suites that are tailored around modern travellers’ needs. These stylish and comfortable rooms are housed inside a 17th-century residence that still features many age-old elements such as overhead ceiling beams and exposed-brick walls. Aside from the essentials, each suite is equipped with an espresso machine, a kettle and a free-to-use minibar. Though the hotel doesn’t offer meal services, it is surrounded by many excellent restaurants and cafés that collectively serve food from early morning until late at night. Since guests access their suites with a keyless entry system, they can come and go as they please.
Like other spots found in Amsterdam’s iconic canal belt, Crown Bed & Breakfast is steeped in history and stands inside an 18th-century sugar warehouse that once belonged to the Dutch Royal Family. The upper levels of this stunning location have since been converted into two modern guest rooms that are fitted with all the essentials plus bathtubs and flat-screen TVs. Due to their deluxe features, excellent location and stunning views across Singel canal, the rooms here are perfect either for couples searching for a romantic destination in central Amsterdam or for urban travellers who enjoy peace and quiet during their time abroad.
This family-run B&B lies adjacent to Amsterdam’s most popular park, Vondelpark, in a peaceful yet animated residential area called Oud-West. Both of Vondelpark House B&B’s rooms are found on the residence’s second floor, while the building’s upper levels are occupied by the owners and their families. Guests at the B&B will find comfy beds, en-suite bathrooms and coffee stations inside their rooms, and access to a kitchen located upstairs. Though guests can expect a high level of privacy during their time with Vondelpark House B&B, they may also contact their hosts when needed such as for information concerning Amsterdam or their lodgings.
This breathtaking boutique hotel looks as though it hasn’t changed since the late 19th century and could easily be mistaken for a museum due to its opulent decorations and furnishings. Though there are some modern touches around the hotel, it is mostly decorated in a style that harks back to the fin de siècle, creating an atmosphere that will likely appeal to travellers with a taste for the ostentatious. As there are only two suites available inside the hotel, it is among the most exclusive establishments in Amsterdam, making it perfect for couples searching for a romantic retreat.
