How to Find the Best Amsterdam Hotels

With over 20 percent of its surface covered with water, it's easy to see why Amsterdam is often referred to as the Venice of the North. It is the capital city of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and home to less than one million people. As you begin to explore this compact city (only a little over 40,000 square kilometers), you may be surprised to discover that it is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. People from 178 different nationalities make up its population. Amsterdam's stock exchange is the oldest in the world. Established in 1602, it predates London's stock exchange by two centuries. Begin your Amsterdam adventure by visiting Venere's website to find the ideal accommodations for your stay. You will find several Amsterdam hotels listed with guest reviews for each one. Choose the location, room size and price level of your hotel before you even board your plane. It's the best way to hit the ground running (or biking) in Amsterdam.

What's Amsterdam Like?

The Rijksmuseum is the National Museum of the Netherlands and it's truly a must-see when you're in Amsterdam. It houses the largest collection of Dutch art and history and ranks among the top museums in the world. Works from several renowned classic artists (Vermeer, Frans Hals, Rembrandt, etc.) are well represented. Other popular museums that are worth a trip are the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank Museum. The former is home to the largest collection of the artist's paintings and the latter is the house that served as the hiding place of the Frank family during WWII. For a lively evening, visit the popular Red Light District of Amsterdam. Located in the oldest part of the city and by day a thriving shopping area, it transforms at night to offer an altogether different form of entertainment. Come with an open mind. Also, there's no need to be afraid of thieves or purse snatchers. This area of Amsterdam is one of the safest in the city. A visit to this extraordinary and historic city would not be complete without a boat tour down one of its waterways. With over 165 canals, Amsterdam has even more canals than Venice! In good weather, you can easily spend an entire day out on the water spotting some of the most popular attractions in the city.

Hints and Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Amsterdam

Most Amsterdam residents speak and understand English with ease, although learning a little Dutch would no hurt. A friendly "Goedemorgen" (Good morning) and a polite "Dank je wel" (Thank you) will no doubt elicit a big smile and an equally warm greeting from these friendly bunch of locals. With more bikes than people (over 880,000 bikes and only 810,000 million residents), renting a two-wheeler to cruise the streets of Amsterdam is a great way to blend in like a local. Be warned, however, riding a bicycle on Amsterdam's busiest streets is not for beginners. In addition to an impressive list of Amsterdam hotels, Venere's website has interactive maps which you can access quite easily. It is a great way to plan your trip to this wonderful city.
