Budget Hotels

Good, simple hotels with a standard interior. All hotels are either 1 star or 2 star hotels with an average price of up to 125 euro.

Amsterdam's hotel scene is known for its high prices, but if you look hard enough you can find a number of wallet-friendly options. To take advantage of hotels that offer lower rates, book as early as possible; hotels frequently sell out in Amsterdam's City Centre, so prices for last-minute bookings tend to skyrocket.
