Sharing a really fun round-up of the best Airbnbs in Amsterdam! Located in North Holland, the capital of the Netherlands is an intoxicating city to spend a long weekend in.
Amsterdam is famous for its meandering canals, historic streets, museums, and cycling (among other things!).
A trip to Amsterdam is a chilled-out time to enjoy some of the best of what Europe has to offer, so you are going to want to make sure you make the most of it by choosing one of the best Airbnbs in Amsterdam.
From boat houses to some truly trendy apartments and old townhouses, there’s something for everyone. Let’s get into some stunning Airbnbs in Amsterdam!
This stylish attic studio apartment comes with a separate bedroom, great kitchen, and a cute little balcony. The interiors of this Amsterdam apartment are super chic. The exposed brick walls, delicate tiled floors, and wood-paneled bathroom will delight you from the moment you walk through the front door.
The surrounding area is nice and quiet, with a selection of great restaurants and bars nearby. It's within walking distance of Vondelpark, museums, the canal district, and Centrum.
I just love the low-key, mid-century design of this cool Amsterdam apartment. The whole place—from the living room to the private bathroom—is clean and contemporary with vintage touches—and all for an affordable price per night.
The surrounding area is a pretty trendy Amsterdam city neighborhood, but still only 10 minutes by tram to the city center and Amsterdam central station.
But the best thing about this Airbnb is the cool little roof terrace—it's a real bonus and means you have a relaxing private space all to yourself to enjoy after a busy day in the city.
Boutique hotels are always a top choice for a city retreat, sure, but an Airbnb that has all the same boutique chic vibe—except with a whole lot more privacy—seems like a pretty good idea to me!
Staying here means you still get the big comfortable bed, top interior design, and a roll-top tub too! The deluxe Amsterdam apartment actually dates back to 1882, so you can get a sprinkle of the city's history during your stay.
Amazingly well situated right in the middle of Amsterdam central, this place is the top choice for a weekend in the city. Just a minute walk from places like De Pijp and the Museum District, you won't waste time on traveling around to the sights if you stay here.
The apartment is stylish, with a bright open living room complete with huge windows, and a big double bed for a good night's sleep. Split across three floors, it's a cozy place to return to even on cold winter days in the city.
The perfect place to base yourself for a stay close to the city centre, basing yourself here means being in the middle of the Canal District. A very modern and chic canal house, there are charming parquet floors, open-plan living areas, and a view of the waterside. Pretty awesome, right?
The host has made sure to tick all the luxury credentials by adding a cinema room with actual tiered seating! There are also walk-in rain showers, memory foam mattresses, and even a little garden that makes for a beautiful suntrap in the afternoon.
Packed full of clever design features and interesting little style touches, there's a really nice, light, and breezy feel to this apartment. With plenty of space to spread out, the large floor to ceiling windows and open living spaces are ideal for a number of guests or a family to enjoy.
With its location just off of the main road in De Pijp, there are also a market and restaurants nearby—and all with the bonus of some pretty cool outdoor space to enjoy on those warm summer days in the city center.
There is nothing that says "Amsterdam" more than staying in an actual houseboat on one of the city's canals. Staying aboard this old cargo vessel that was built in 1908 will give you an insight into the real-life of the city.
Thankfully, the boat has been fully transformed into a well-designed space that comes very highly recommended by previous guests.
Sit with a book in the sunshine on the top deck terrace, watch the world go by along the water's edge, and walk easily from the Prinsengracht canal location to many pubs, museums, and city center attractions nearby.
There you have it, people—the best Airbnbs in Amsterdam. I don’t know about you, but I’m SO ready to book a stay in a canal house for the perfect stay in the city. Where will you stay? Let me know by tagging me (@wtfab) in your Insta stories and pics!
