For those of discerning taste, Amsterdam's finest hotels accommodate epicures in style and with elegance.

Amsterdam has numerous hotels providing excellent accommodations, but there are a select few that deliver the best. Because Amsterdam is a relatively small yet densely populated city, space in the city center is at a premium. There are over 38,000 hotel beds in Amsterdam, but the great majority of these rooms are not fit for high standards.

The best hotels in Amsterdam are so, not only for their amenities, but also for their respective proximity to the best that Amsterdam has to offer visitors. Centrally located hotels like the Grand Hotel Armath and Hotel Victoria are grandiose in their architectural splendor. For those coming to experience arts in Amsterdam, the Park Plaza Vondelpark is minutes away from Museumplein. For the best views in Amsterdam, take a look at the Doubletree Centraal Station and Hotel Okura Amsterdam. Quite possibly, the most unique location to stay in Amsterdam is right on one the beautiful canals or rivers, such as Hotel Pulitzer on Prinsengracht or Hotel De L’Europe on the Amstel river.
