Do I even have to begin to explain the varying appeals of Amsterdam? You can take a number of approaches when you visit the city, but regardless of what you do while you’re there – you deserve to get the best deal you can.
Flights to Amsterdam are usually best value in Jan-April, with the prices increasing with demand during the warmer months.
An earlier departure flight from Liverpool, and a later flight from Amsterdam are available – but this would put you back an additional £25each.
As standard, my rules for choosing hotels are; Guest Rating 3.5 or higher, Central Location, Minimum 3* rating, and good value.
Die Port van Cleve Hotel (3*) – £215
This hotel is high ranking for service and location; it should be noted that breakfast is available as a surcharge but wifi is included.
This rate is an offer for a three night stay, and will get you a standard double or twin room.
Hotel The Exchange (3*)– £216
This hotel is quirky. All the rooms are themed, and is definitely an experience. All reviews are hugely positive and points towards a distinctive stay.
- TopCashback currently have an offer for Hotels.com offering 10.5% back on bookings through a desktop PC, or alternatively 12.6% through the App. That is a £27.09 discount through the App!
- Avoid Taxis. Trams around Amsterdam tend to be in the region of €2.80 each way, with offers on 1 day, 2 day, 3 day and 7 day tickets. If you do need to hop a cab, try Uber which is now becoming popular in the city.
- Like many European cities, Amsterdam have large number of bakeries making it the perfect breakfast option rather than paying over the odds in a hotel.
