Old Centre

The “Old Centre” of Amsterdam, with Dam Square at its heart, dates from the 13th century. The district is full of shops, excellent hotels, canals, interesting buildings and “coffee shops” making it the most visited part of the city.

Of particular note are Warmoesstraat and Zeedijk streets. Warmoesstraat runs parallel to the Amstel river from the Centraal railway station to Dam Square and is the heart of Amsterdam’s world-famous gay cruise & leather fetish bar scene. Zeedijk has a growing number of gay venues but is better known as home of Amsterdam’s Chinatown. 

Walk to gay cruise clubs.

NH Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky5 stars

Why this hotel? Great location. Near gay bars, sights & shops. Free WiFi.

The popular NH Krasnapolsky has a great central location overlooking Dam Square, near sights and shops, and about halfway between the gay cruise club scene in Warmesstraat and the gay bar scene around Amstel river.

The building dates back to 1855, but the modern air-conditioned guest rooms are spacious and feature contemporary bathrooms, free WiFi and satellite TV.

The NH has its own gym, though the nearby Sauna Nieuwezijds may be more tempting. Rates are competitive.

Fabulous design.

Conservatorium Hotel5 stars

Van Baerlestraat 27, Amsterdam | map | distance

9.33 Fantastic - based on 1727 reviews

Why this hotel? Fabulous design. Close to the gay nightlife. Free WiFi.

The Conservatorium has one of the most impressive, contemporary architectural designs in the city, featuring an onsite spa, a fabulous 18-metre indoor lap pool and a well-equipped gym.

A lot of the building’s original features have been retained, but the redevelopment has created a futuristic, urban/chic industrial feel within its public spaces.

Designed by Italian Piero Lissoni (designer for the likes of Alessi and Cappellini), the hotel rooms are spacious (from 30 m² upwards) and feature flat screen TV mirrors in the bathroom, coffee machines and free WiFi.

The hotel is located close to many museums, just outside the main city canal area. RAPIDO party @ Paradiso and Club Church cruise bar are within walking distance, but you will need to take a tram or taxi to the nightlife scene around Warmoesstraat & Zeejijk.
