Amsterdam is full to bursting with hotels, alternating from really good to really bad. Spending one night or more in Amsterdam is always an experience, but you will have to be in the right hotel to make the most of it. You should always pay particular attention to your choice of hotel, especially when opting for those in the centre of town. There are a number of luxury central hotels where service is always top class but be warned, there are also many hotels where both service and hygiene leaves a lot to be desired. Furthermore, the centre of Amsterdam is always extremely busy and you must be able to put up with street noise. Of course, the flip side is that, being in the centre, you are within a short distance of all the popular attractions. If you need something quieter consider the Jordaan district which has a wide range of hotels in a much quieter location, with the additional advantage of still being close to the centre of town.
