How does one make that decision?
It is important to know a little bit about the city before you can decide where to stay in Amsterdam. Where do you want to go to, what do you want to see? Which neighborhoods are good, or beautiful, or interesting?
Which accommodations are ideal to rent, considering the costs involved, the location and proximity to transportation hubs? When you look to rent apartment Amsterdam will not leave you wanting for choices.
How much money do you have/ or are willing to spend on your place for staying in Amsterdam?
A lot of things to consider and that's why there is such a great variety of places to stay, so everybody can chose something to his likings and wallet.
The Amsterdam Neighborhoods are divided into the Old Centre, the Canals, The Museum quarter, the Jordaan and The Jewish quarter. The Canals are of course a great spot to find hotels, houseboats and Bed and Breakfasts. It is not true that on the side of the canals the prices are most expensive. Some are, some aren't. Take a good look around.
Then the Jordaan is a good spot to look for hotels. It is a very beautiful neighborhood, with lots of small galleries and boutiques. Very nice to stay here.
But if you like to enjoy nightlife, the Old Centre may be a good choice for you. Close to the Red Light District, coffeeshops and night clubs.
