Motel One Amsterdam-Waterlooplein, Amsterdam, Netherlands
If you have a limited accommodation budget, this hotel makes a good compromise when visiting Amsterdam. It boasts a contemporary design, its rooms are comfortable and it has an inviting lounge bar area. Although not the most attractive neighbourhood, it is relatively central and near numerous popular attractions. Service here is efficient and friendly, and you get a decent buffet breakfast and a good selection of drinks if you want to experience the bar in the evening. The spotless rooms are light and bright and of an adequate size and have flat screen TVs, a safe, and modern sleek bathrooms.
Here, you get a glimpse of how the average Amsterdamer lives, rather than the more unreal or untypical persona seen in the heavily tourist areas.
The hotel is in the city centre and within walking distance of the zoo, Rembrandt's house and the botanical gardens.
By plane: direct flights from London and Manchester take around 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from Schiphol airport and a 15-minute walk from central station. skyscanner.net
