If you’ve been following us for a while now, you’ll know that we love to show you the coolest and hottest hotspots in our hometown Amsterdam. No idea what we’re talking about? Check out our Amsterdam hotspot list here. However, in order to fully experience these hotspots and the best city in the world you need a good place to stay. This can be a fancy hotel or you could get more local and rent an Airbnb apartment. During the last couple of years, we’ve become big fans of Airbnb not just to book our own holidays with but also for discovering the coolest places in any town. So why not share our discoveries with you guys!
#1 Bright water villa on superb location | When visiting Amsterdam it’s technically a must to sleep in a houseboat. The perks of spending the night on a houseboat are that they’re often located at the best spots in town where regular houses can’t come. That’s exactly the case with this amazing houseboat. It’s located 10 minutes from Central Station and 5 min from the must-visit neighbourhood the Jordaan so you’ll find everything within walking distance. As the description states, this houseboat really is a villa on the water. Besides the great interior, it’s got three bedrooms for 4 people. Perfect for a weekend getaway with friends.

#2 Very special split level space in trendy east area | Another thing you’ll probably only find in Amsterdam is one of these gorgeous split level apartments. This way you get a spacious living room with loads of natural daylight like you’ve never seen before. Furthermore, we love the cosy and colourful interior, which makes this home the perfect place to stay for a small family with kids. As it’s located close to Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo, we’re sure you’ll have a lovely time here. Don’t forget to check out the most romantic restaurant right next to the zoo. [Check it out on Airbnb]
#3 Romantic stay in city centre | Just like the description states, this place will guarantee a romantic stay. Located at just a few metres walking distance from all the best museums in town, you’ll have everything you need at this place. Additionally, we absolutely love the interior, we certainly wouldn’t mind moving in *hearteyes*. The kitchen also looks like it’s made for some good cooking sessions but only after visiting some of the best restaurants in town. [Check it out on Airbnb]
#4 Rijksmuseum view Penthouse | A penthouse with a view on the Rijksmuseum, do we need to say more?! This penthouse is located on the top floor of an original 18th-century Dutch building and is described as the perfect treat for a couple. Imagine waking up and casually walking to the best museums in town? It doesn’t get more local than this. And look at that cute spacious bedroom in the attic. [Check it out on Airbnb]
#5 Stylish studio with stunning river view | We’ve got to admit we’re a sucker for pretty apartments and interior (if you haven’t already noticed). This adorable studio apartment has some modern bohemian vibes, which will more likely give you the feeling as though you’ve arrived in Marocco only to walk out the door to find out you’re right in the city centre of Amsterdam. Located next to the vintage market on Waterlooplein, the Opera/Ballet Theatre and numerous other museums, you certainly won’t get bored here. [Check it out on Airbnb]
Staying in Amsterdam doesn’t just mean you can spend the night on a houseboat, it also means that you can enjoy the best food in town. We’ve been lucky enough to try out some of the best for you (read about our experiences here) but our favourite has got to be the Tolhuistuin in the north part of Amsterdam.
