Location is key at the one-star Quentin Golden Bear Hotel, formerly the Gay Hotel Golden Bear. This section of the Kerkstraat where the hotel is located is among the most happening hubs of Amsterdam's gay scene.
Bear with us, as we try to get our story, er, straight. (Sorry!) We recommended the Gay Hotel Golden Bear for years, as the hotel was once of the most famous of the city’s gay-run guesthouses. In late 2013, however, the hotel was sold to the Quentin Hotel chain, which runs several other budget-friendly hotels in town.
The hotel went through major renovations in 2014, although it still offers a few cheap rooms without private bathrooms. Its 17 rooms are equipped with TV and free Wi-Fi.
Still, with doubles ranging from €100-120, it’s a bit more expensive than back in the gay old days.
Note: Gay Hotel The Golden Bear has steep stairs—and no elevator.

About the Hotel the Golden Bear neighborhood
The most elegant area within the city center, Grachtengordel South (also referred to as the "Southern Canal Ring") features opulent residences, mansion-lined streets and a hot nightlife scene. The area boasts both Rembrandtplein (the city's one-time butter market) and Leidseplein (a former horse and buggy drop-off point). Both squares have been reborn as hot spots for bars, clubs, restaurants and no small number of tourist traps.
