Cheap hotels in Old Center, Amsterdam

The Old Center is home to many of Amsterdam's main tourist attractions, with the notable exception of the most important museums (located south in the Museumplein). The Red Light District, Dam Square, the Royal Palace, Nieuwmarkt, and a seemingly endless supply of "coffeeshops" keep the area packed with eager—and often gawking—tourists.

Sleeping in the Old Center: This is the city's touristy nerve-center. It's dirty, chaotic, crowded and, for some, enthralling. Choosing a hotel in the Old Center is certainly convenient for sightseeing, and it makes getting to and from the central train station a snap. However, it's also quite noisy, and certain areas (especially in the Red Light District) are frequented at night by roving groups of merrymakers. If you're up for the fun, by all means, join the fun!

Address NDSM-Pier 3 (Old Center)

EuroCheapo Review: The Amstel Botel, docked at a wharf on the outskirts of the city, allows you to see a different side of Amsterdam. Verdict? It's a little dystopian, and we like it.... read review
