The Best Hotels in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Amsterdam, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our team to Amsterdam are four young professional travelers who have tested a lot of hotels, restaurants and night-clubs world-wide.

Amsterdam is the greatest small city in the world. From canals to world-famous museums and historical sights, Amsterdam is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe.

Amsterdam is a city of tolerance and diversity. It has all the advantages of a big city: good transport, rich culture and lively nightlife – and thanks to the extensive canals, it is quiet with little road traffic. The destination is never far away, so get a bike for an authentic local experience.

Museums are the main tourist attraction – the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum is a must.

Amsterdam shopping is great in department stores and shopping malls. Go to Dam Square – most department stores and shopping malls are within a short walking distance from the Dam Square. The best choices are offered by De Bijenkorf, Magna Plaza or the Kalvertoren on the Kalverstraat. If you like more luxury, bring your gold-cards and go to P.C. Hooftstraat.

Amsterdam has a lot of cafes and restaurants catering for every tastes, budgets and moods. Top quality restaurants and stylish bars as well as more traditional Dutch cafés.

Overall, the restaurants in Amsterdam have a relaxed vibe. Most restaurants do not demand fancy clothing or high heels. However, there are a lot of fine-dining restaurants and clubs where people do dress up.
