The 8 Best Hotels Near Amsterdam Centraal (Central Train Station)

Amsterdam Centraal, the central train station in Amsterdam, is often called the real heart of the city. Not only does it receive trains from elsewhere in the Netherlands, it’s also a hub for trains from all over Europe, including London (by Eurostar), Paris, Brussels, Basel, and many of the biggest cities in Austria and Germany. A local train also connects Amsterdam Centraal to Amsterdam Schiphol airport. Visitors to Amsterdam, especially those travelling further to other parts of Europe, will therefore find it extremely convenient to stay in accommodations within easy walking distance of Amsterdam Centraal.

Note: Accommodations are shortlisted based on their review scores on Booking.com and TripAdvisor, as well as their distance from the train station as determined through Google Maps. We are not connected in any way with any of the properties listed, and the best accommodations are selected based on a combination of reviews, rankings, nearness to the train station, and best value for money.

Our Picks

You can hardly go wrong with any of these accommodations. In fact, these hotels and apartments make us want to drop everything we’re doing and head straight back to Amsterdam!

In expensive cities like Amsterdam, it’s rare to find accommodations that are both very highly regarded and on the lower end of the price range. Add the fact that it’s in a canal house with great views and is only 5 minutes’ walk from Amsterdam Centraal and Velvet Amsterdam is easily a frontrunner for our choice of accommodations in Amsterdam.

Also in a historic canal house and roughly the same distance from Amsterdam Centraal is the boutique-style Mauro Mansion. There’s a reason it’s among the top-ranked hotels in Amsterdam, and if you want a sure bet, this is it.

Hotels Near Amsterdam Central Train Station - NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace - Junior Suite
Hotels Near Amsterdam Central Train Station - Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam - Penthouse

Speaking of historic, NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace fits the bill and more. Splurge on a Junior Suite and get spacious, split-level accommodations with beautiful wooden beams and amazing views out the window. To that experience, the 15th century chapel inside the hotel would only be historical icing on the cake.

And for a true splurge, there’s the penthouse at the Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam, which comes with its private rooftop lounge on top of all the convenience and amenities the hotel has to offer.

But if you’re after the human element and would like a best friend while you’re staying in Amsterdam, previous guests all agree: Ria of City Break Amsterdam B&B is the homestay host you need.

Whatever your preference and price point, book your accommodations as early as you can to be sure you can stay at your first choice hotel or apartment near Amsterdam Centraal.
