The green-minded will spin for the Bicycle Hotel Amsterdam. Not only does the one-star hotel maintain eco-friendly practices (solar power, recycling...), it also offers low-cost bike rentals so you can easily navigate the city.
The Bicycle Hotel’s 16 rooms are ho-hum. Some have narrow bunk beds looking out onto a pleasant garden, while others offer a view of the tranquil Van Ostadestraat and beds that allow more stretching room. All are equipped with a television and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms also have a balcony (ask ahead).
Some rooms have a private bathroom, but most share a clean, efficient, white-tile shower and toilet on the first-floor hallway (note that it does smell as if bikers walk through quite often).
We like the bright, fun-filled downstairs lounge area. Other pluses include reasonable rates and a cool, quiet location close to the world-famous Albert Cuyp Markt—although at the Bicycle Hotel, it's really all about, well, the bikes.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Note that the hotel has steep stairs (and no elevator).

Pijp, Amsterdam, Netherlands
About the Bicycle Hotel neighborhood
De Pijp sits just to the east of Museumplein, but where Museumplein is upscale, De Pijp is scrappy. Amsterdam's very first suburb, today it's home today to large numbers of immigrants from Suriname, Morocco and Turkey. It's also the site of the Albert Cuyp Market, the largest public market in all of Europe, and Sarphatipark, a lovely green oasis plopped down in the center of the neighborhood.
