Tips for accommodation in Amsterdam. How to choose the location of the hotel?
An incredible number of hotels and hostels have been built in Amsterdam, designed to suit every taste and budget. Before booking a tour, you need to familiarize yourself with the features and distribution of guest houses in relation to certain attractions.
You can start your journey by searching for hotels in one of the brightest areas of the city - Seeburg. Due to its close proximity to popular cultural sites such as the Rembrandt House Museum, Dam Square and the Royal Palace of Amsterdam, guests can easily explore some of the city's most famous sights. Modern architecture is also very developed here - for example, the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ concert hall or the unusually shaped bridge over the Ii River. Seafood lovers are advised to visit one of the most memorable restaurants located nearby - Kreeftenbar Amsterdam.
Less than a kilometer from the center of the capital, you can book a room in the shopping area De 9 Straatjes. This picturesque place is stretched along the canals, filled with a huge number of shops and cozy cafes. Gourmets will be able to taste seafood in one of the nearby restaurants, as well as try the world-famous Dutch dessert Hagelslag, which is a sandwich made from bread, butter and colored powder.
In the province of Haarlem, located in the west of the Netherlands, go mainly lovers of family vacations. Also, tourists can get acquainted with the culturally significant objects of Holland. The Anne Frank House Museum, the Rijksmuseum and many other city attractions are located here.
No less attractive for city guests is the Ost district. Its area is constantly expanding, thanks to the creation of artificial islands. Here, every guest will find something interesting for themselves. For example, the De Duyf Church, built in 1857, is a unique architectural monument, as well as one of the best concert venues in Amsterdam, the Concertgebouw, generously complement the excursion program.

Amsterdam travel guide
The canal system was one of the main parts of town planning. At the beginning of the 17th century, four main canals were constructed, the waters of which were used for the needs of the population and for controlling the water level. Over the centuries, the architecture of the water arteries has undergone some changes. A lot of parks, theaters, houses, as well as new waterways have now been built on the territory of the former highways.
Amsterdam is rich in architectural history. For example, one of the oldest buildings in the city is het Houten Huys in Begijnhof, which was built in 1425. This ancient building is a prime example of Gothic architecture. However, Gothic was replaced by the so-called Dutch Renaissance.
Another highlight is the Westerkerk church, designed by architect Hendrik de Keyser. But the next Baroque style can be traced on the example of the Royal Palace on Dam Square.
The historic center of Amsterdam is a mixture of all architectural styles that have manifested themselves throughout the history of the city.
It is worth mentioning the famous Museum Square, which appeared at the end of the 19th century on the territory of the World Exhibition. The main state museum of the capital is the Rijksmuseum, one of the world-famous centers of cultural heritage, one of the twenty largest museums in the world. The Van Gogh Museum and Coster Diamonds are also must-sees.
