Looking at booking a short break in Amsterdam for me, DH, & DC who will be 12 & 13. Ideally we want to be close to city as we definitely want to visit Anne Frank's house, Van Gogh museum etc but if there are accommodation options that are much cheaper outside of Amsterdam then we would consider that. Ideally I want a Premier Inn equivalent as we have always had a good experience with them without breaking the bank!! TIA
We liked Movenpick because the family rooms are actually made up of an interconnecting double and twin which meant that we weren't all in the same space. We could talk and have the light on once the kids were asleep! A good option for tweens who appreciate as both you and they get some privacy!
www.hotelsebastians.nl/en/ We stayed here in a family room. Nice little hotel (think breakfast was free for kids), great location near Anne Franks house. Fairly reasonably priced compared to a lot of Amsterdam hotels. People rave about it on TripAdvisor!
Gosh, €300+ per night for 4 people! I've just paid €270 for 4 nights for 4 people in Florence, right in the centre. Similar for Rome last Easter. I think Amsterdam is out of our price range for a while. It used to be really cheap.
We stayed at Hotel Aalders two years ago. All in one room but it was fairly central in the Museum Quarter. We headed straight to Anne Frank on our first night. Not the cheapest city but definitely worth a visit.
We stayed here https://www.droomparken.com/spaarnwoude/ a few years ago as a family of four. It was fab, much cheaper than staying in central Amsterdam and the train station was around a 15/20 minute walk away.
We stayed in a family home in the suburbs which we found on air B and B (the family rented it out when they were away for half term) we had access to their bikes and it was a 20 min cycle ride into the city centre. Was great fun.
