I’ve pretty well run the gamut of places to stay in Amsterdam. From five star hotels when visiting the city for a conference to a squat by the railway line when self-funding a trip, also in many different style apartments borrowed from friends and friends of friends. So here are my ideas of where to stay in the wonderful city of Amsterdam:
1. Hotel Pulitzer. This was the ultimate Amsterdam experience. In the center of the city on the Prinsengracht canal, the hotel is a series of houses converted and joined. The rooms are all different and full of character, mine was so rambling it had a doorbell! This is where Clooney stayed in Oceans Twelve.
2. Conservatorium Hotel. The latest gorgeous high end hotel in an historic building right near the Van Gogh Museum and in the expensive shopping streets PC Hoofstraat.
