• Best Value: Taking all factors into account — price, location, facilities, hospitality, Dutchness, and that indefinable element that makes a stay memorable — the Estheréa is the best value in town.
  • Best for Tradition: Die Port van Cleve is one of Amsterdam's oldest hotels but has entirely modernized rooms so you can celebrate the 17th century in 21st-century comfort.
  • Best for Families: Hard to beat, the Amstel Botel is a floating hotel that you reach by boat. Among its neighbors are a retired Soviet attack sub, a Greenpeace warrior of the seas, and the "Pancake Boat."
  • Best for Business Travelers: The NH Barbizon Palace is modern, luxurious, stylish, efficient, and has an excellent location — opposite Centraal Station — and a full range of business facilities.
  • Best Unknown Hotel: This accolade goes to Seven Bridges for its combination of location, decor, personal service, enthusiastic owners, and general all-round quality.
  • Best Budget Hotel: Many cheap hotels in Amsterdam leave a lot to be desired. Not so the Museumzicht, a plain, clean, and friendly hotel at a superb location across from the Rijksmuseum.
