Best Boutique Hotels in Amsterdam

When can I find the best deals on Boutique Hotels in Amsterdam?

There are some hotels in Amsterdam that have manged to channel the famous freethinking liberalism of the Dutch character, its love of Golden Age art and its penchant for confident interior design. They dot the bustling pavements of the Damrak and rise above the elegant 17th-century Canal Ring, promising a stay with a difference in this bucket list European capital. They don't always mean paying a premium, either, as there are great bargains to be found in seasons like late winter and autumn. Just be sure to avoid Christmas, New Year, the annual Koningsdag and other major holidays to get the best rates.

Top Boutique Hotels in Amsterdam

There are few Amsterdam boutique hotels that can match the artistry of the Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht. A concept hotel and proud of it, its Hyatt-designed interiors are awash with retro lights, Dadaist installations and neo-Gothic touches of real panache – you'll never tire of exploring its nooks and crannies. Hotel Estheréa is wholly different, offering the regal opulence of old Holland with a Flemish fusion of chandeliers and velveteen dining spaces. For 5-star service, you could go boutique at the Conservatorium – minimalist pools and tradition-defying cuisine await behind its handsome exterior.

Where are the best areas for Boutique Hotels in Amsterdam?

Head to Grachtengordel. Winding its way around the kernel of Dam Square, this neighbourhood is a World Heritage Site that promises some of the top Amsterdam boutique hotels, along with stepped Flemish facades, canals lined with barges, beer-clinking bars and smoky coffeeshops – it's the Netherlands of the postcards. The area of Oost is also worth considering. Your boutique stay there will be close to local microbreweries and leafy parks and off-beat museums. Then there's Damrak, home to bustling hole-in-the-wall snack bars and the curious Sex Museum.

What are Boutique Hotels like in Amsterdam?

Boutique hotels in Amsterdam love to do things differently. Some will welcome guests with a forest of sculpture, art and mural-clad lobbies, not to mention suites that are laden with cutting-edge technology and even more portraiture inspired by the city's heritage. Others will command 5-star ratings thanks to their inclusion of swish pool spaces and minimalist spa facilities. And then there are those that prefer to recreate the richness of old-world Amsterdam, packing their lounges with crystal chandeliers, vivid upholstery and gold-leaf furnishings.

How much do Boutique Hotels typically cost in Amsterdam?

In a city where accommodation hardly comes cheap, it's actually possible to find some great bargains on Amsterdam boutique hotels. Take the stripped-down, minimalist places close to Oost. They might be further from the main attractions, but they do have rates that start at a meagre £20 a night. Others will be pricier, like the spots on Damrak that can sell for anything over £55 a night. Costs can rise even more in the UNESCO area of the Canal Ring, going from around £100 a night to more than £300.
