Family hotels in Amsterdam
Traveling with family is a pleasure on its own. You will experience a reduced amount of nostalgia and all pleasures of sharing your experiences with your kids. Children learn a lot when traveling, visiting Amsterdam historical places and observing different people. Obviously – all Amsterdam nightlife aspects will be not in your family itinerary, but you must also have in mind that staying in crowds, walking on long distances and waiting in line to some museums, might be a little heavy on children, especially small kids. Nevertheless - if you choose the right Amsterdam family hotel, adapt your schedule, make it less crammed and if you foresee the time for kids to play, they will enjoy travel not less than you do.
Here is our choice of the family hotels in Amsterdam. They are all in different price ranges; check our reservation system for the rates.
Herengracht 519-525, 1017 BV Amsterdam
One of the best in town, Carlton Banks Mansion is not a per se Amsterdam family hotel - just a luxurious four star Amsterdam centre hotel at the Herengracht canal.

Valkenburgerstraat 68, 1011 LZ Amsterdam
This relatively new (built in 2000) hotel has simple, modern, air-conditioned, rather small rooms, and it is established in a short walking distance from all main tourist attractions, including Amsterdam ZOO. Its main values are good service, moderate rates and specifically the Ibis Stopera strict rule; that a child until 12 stays free in the parent’s room which makes it an excelent Amsterdam family hotel. At Ibis it means, that if you rent a 3-beds room, the child stays free and you will be paying only the double room rate.
