- Group hotel reservations (for new reservations)
For group reservations of 10 and more persons, conference and congress service, please request a group hotel reservation, which will be handled by a specialized travel agent. For small groups under 10 persons, please use the online hotel reservation system.

If you look for hotels or vacation apartments you are welcome to search featured database of hotels and vacation apartments. Hotel reservations are provided in cooperation with the best booking engines in Holland and vacation apartments are rented by renowned apartment agencies. We do not keep direct telephone or fax contacts for the hotels, so we cannot assist with that.
- Lost hotel confirmation, changes and cancellation
There are several reservation systems featured at our web site for quality hotels, apartments, airport shuttle and other services. It is therefore neccessary to contact the right company in order to cancel your reservation. Amsterdam.info does not keep your reservation details for hotels, but we do refer the reservation providers instead.
- Amsterdam brochures and printed maps
We do not distribute paper materials - it is both unecological and costly. All the information we have included at our web site and please consult the individual categories or use the search tool. For maps please print out our street map of Amsterdam . If you really need printed materials, you may consider to contact the tourist office.
- Routes and directions

- Events, culture agenda and festivals
We have the top annual events
listed in our events section and there you can also find links to other web sites who do list events on daily or weekly basis. The best source of information on underground events is www.underwateramsterdam.com, and www.aub.nl for the official events.
- Jobs and relocation
Our community and students sections deal with these issues. If you are looking for a job (other than those few job vacancies advertised directly with Amsterdam.info), please do not contact us but rather use the free classifieds board to place an advertisement. Please note, the ad must be exclusively related to Amsterdam, and that you could receive a lot of spam and offers from individuals.
