Amsterdam Budget Hotels under €100

Amsterdam hotel rates are normally in the €100-€200 range, not surprising when you consider the city centre's lack of large hotels. However, there are some very good hotel options for under €100 - particularly if you book in advance - some of which we list below.

Essentially, this means either choosing one of the larger chain hotels located at the edge of the city - but easily accessible by public transport; or staying closer to central Amsterdam in one of the smaller but highly regarded family-run hotels.

1. Holiday Inn Express - Budget chain offers high standard accommodation for a reasonable price - advance rates sometimes available from just under €100. Comfortable, spacious rooms with free WiFi internet and a free continental breakfast. Amsterdam has 2 quite new and well-rated 'HIX' hotels.

The HIX Amsterdam Sloterdijk is located right next to Amsterdam Sloterdijk station, giving easy train access to Schiphol airport (10 mins) and Amsterdam Central (5 mins). Tram 12 takes you to the city's museum quarter. The hotel's surrounding area is an office district with not much shopping/easting out - however, it's a solid choice for those wanting the convenience of an easy luggage journey.

The HIX Amsterdam South is just over 1km south from Amsterdam Zuid station, itself just 7 minutes train from Schiphol airport. Around the corner from the hotel is a Jumbo supermarket and the van Boshuizenstraat tram/metro stop for travel to Amsterdam Zuid and the city centre. It has earned excellent reviews and is also a choice for Amsterdam RAI convention attendees.

CitizenM Amsterdam City - This 215 room CitizenM hotel is found in a residential area near Amsterdam Zuid station (5 minutes walk) - also very convenient for Amsterdam RAI. Tram 5 takes you to the museum quarter and city centre.

CitizenM hotels attract a modern crowd, rooms are small and can be intimate with both shower and toilet in the middle. They are probably more suited for younger couples and single travellers. Note, baby cots are not offered.

Rooms are very basic and you need to pay for extras such as room cleaning, air conditioning, TV and WiFi. Shower/toilet in the middle of the room. Could suit young budget travellers who just need a bed to crash. Probably value if securing the very lowest room rates (from €50, sales may be a little cheaper) but remember the extras.
