Amsterdam Leidseplein Hotels

Hotels near Leidseplein AmsterdamOne of the more central squares in Amsterdam, Leidseplein can arguably be considered the heart of the city's nightlife. As well as the many sports bars, cafés and Irish pubs on the square itself, nightclubs, coffeeshops and restaurants are scattered throughout the streets surrounding Leidseplein. In very close proximity is popular nightspot Melkweg, while former church turned music venue Paradiso is just a stone's throw away.

Sunny days can be whiled away in the green environment of Vondelpark, just across the canal, while the nearby Heineken Brewery allows you to visit the home of the beer you will be drinking later that night. For the more cultured side of your city break, Museumplein is a short tram or bike ride away, where the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum can be found.
