Beds of tulips, rambling parks, picturesque canals – what’s not to love about the great outdoors in Amsterdam? And when you book a hotel with a balcony you can take it all in, from the sound of locals zipping by on bicycles to the buzz of boats puttering along waterways. Best of all, in this city of mild winters and warm summers, you can make the most of that balcony, no matter when you visit. Here’s our pick of the best hotels in Amsterdam with a balcony – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Hotel Roemer

An easy stroll from the epic Rijksmuseum and pond-dotted Vondelpark, this hotel in Amsterdam is all about crisp, clean white sheets, muted stucco walls, statement lamps – and fabulous artworks. Executive room balconies look out to handsome brick buildings and trees on a sleepy street that’s quiet despite being so well located. Dive into the honesty bar and sip a nightcap in the private courtyard garden after a day of exploring.

2. Hotel Casa Amsterdam

In the trendy Oost, or east, district of the city, a short walk from the Amstel canal, Hotel Casa channels the architecturally daring, 1950s nouveau side of the Dutch capital, with vaulting glass windows and beds with leather backboards. The on-site restaurant, East, draws locals in with the hefty burgers – and there’s even a rooftop beer garden, GAPP, where you can catch some rays on warm Amsterdam summer days.

3. Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam

The Indonesian theme may, at first, seem odd – until you learn this hotel stands in the spot from which ships once left Amsterdam for Jakarta. The centrepiece is an inner garden of subtropical foliage, with towering palms, banana trees and ginger plants; the long and glassy indoor pool and sublime views over the IJ river from Skybar Malabar are pretty impressive too. Book a junior suite and you’ll get a balcony overlooking the water, as well as gold-tinted accent pillows and floor-to-ceiling windows.

4. Alp Hotel Amsterdam

Independent Hotel

With just 17 rooms, Alp Hotel Amsterdam has an intimate, local feel that’s enhanced by its serene garden and balconied rooms. Over in a sleepy quarter in the west of the city, you’re just a short stroll from boutiquey Jordaan and within striking distance of sprawling Westerpark, dominated by waterways and sprawling lawns. Take advantage of the 24-hour free hot drinks and fruit bar, and upgrade to a room with a spa bath if you want to properly unwind.

5. Chassé Hotel

If you like a stay with real character, this hotel in Amsterdam is hard to top – it’s in a former church. You wouldn’t guess it from the decor, with its button-backed armchairs, ethereal curtains, cushy padded headboards and, in some rooms, balconies with modern furniture. The clues are in the arched windows and the grand exterior, complete with clock and bell towers. An on-site restaurant and dance studio mean you don’t have to go far for entertainment.

6. NH Collection Amsterdam Flower Market, Muntplein

Chic and sleek, this centrally located pad, just a short walk from the floating flower market, channels cool urban style. Mustard-coloured throws, dark-stained woods and pendant bedside lamps furnish the rooms; the airy restaurant is lined with tropical plants and sage-green chairs. Some of the balconied rooms can sleep up to three people, perfect for families who are craving a hip stay with an urban edge and easy access to De Wallen, the old city core.

7. Kimpton De Witt, De Wallen

Like modernism? You’ll love the Kimpton De Witt, with its eye-catching art, boxy colour-pop furniture and brassy details. This brilliantly located hotel in Amsterdam, a short walk from Centraal station, is cool for many reasons, but the crowning glory has to be the adjoining Super Lyan, the neon-bright cocktail bar by British drinks maestro Ryan Chetiyawardana. Splurge on a suite and you’ll get a balcony or, in the case of the Penthouse De Witt, a huge rooftop terrace.

8. NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky

Suite Hotel, Business Hotel

Chandeliered dining areas festooned in gold leaf; sweeping views to central Dam square; bountiful breakfast buffets with displays of fruit and bread baskets galore – this is a truly opulent Amsterdam hotel. Smart modern rooms in grey, white and red will suit leisure and business travellers in equal measure, decked out as they are with rain-effect showers and, in some cases, views across Dam square itself. Spacious terraced rooms sleep up to three.
