Beds of tulips, rambling parks, picturesque canals – what’s not to love about Amsterdam’s great outdoors? 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.

Hotel Roemer

Hotel Roemer
An easy stroll from the epic Rijksmuseum and pond-dotted Vondelpark, this stay 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’s exploring.

Hotel Casa Amsterdam

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 its hefty burgers – and there’s even a rooftop beer garden, GAPP, where you can catch some rays on warm Amsterdam summer days.

Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam

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 balconies overlooking the water, as well as gold-tinted accent pillows and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Alp Hotel Amsterdam

Alp Hotel Amsterdam
With just 17 rooms, Alp Hotel 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.

Chassé Hotel

Chassé Hotel
If you like a stay with real character, this one’s hard to top – it’s located 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.

    Kimpton De Witt, De Wallen

    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, 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.
