5 x interesting places to stay at in Amsterdam

Amsterdam itself can be a pretty interesting place to visit. For many tourists Amsterdam's tolerant policy and sightseeing possibilities are worth a visit to the country's capital. I mean who doesn't like wandering around and be surrounded by centuries old buildings and bridges while soaking up some of the local culture as well?

But not only the iconic canal houses or other buildings can be a point of interest, also the place you're staying at can be. We listed the most interesting accommodations in Amsterdam, read below and find out!

Faralda Crane Hotel

Want the best view possible? Then consider staying in one of the three cabins in the Faralda Crane Hotel on the NDSM Wharf. With a stunning view over the IJ river and a hot tube on the most upper level of the crane, this will be a once in a lifetime experience for sure. The crane once used to put big parts of ships together before the ships were being released into the water, but is now transformed into a luxurious place to stay at in Amsterdam.

Floating hotel? Stay at the botel! This boat now permanently lays at the NDSM Wharf in Amsterdam North and has about 175 rooms! Prices go as low as 84 euro per night and when you book you can either choose for water or land view. There's also a bar on board and city bikes to rent, fun guaranteed! The botel also lays next to the ferry that will bring you to central station in just 10 minutes (free of charge). Book your room at http://amstelbotel.nl.

Hotel Not Hotel

Hotel or no hotel? Well, it's a hotel, but not a typical hotel you would have in mind. Every room in this hotel is a piece of art and can be as exciting as sleeping in an old tram (like the picture above shows), a secret library, sky scraper rooms and more. All the rooms have the luxury you can expect of a normal hotel, like king size beds, bed linnen, enough storage space and sockets to charge all of your devices.

Lloyd Hotel

Like Hotel Not Hotel, every room in The Lloyd hotel is different as well. This hotel has another unique feature and that is that there's rooms with 1 to 5 stars ranking, so that there's a room for every budget! Interesting to know is that this building used to be an immigrant hotel, a prison and later on a juvenile detention center before The Lloyd Hotel took its place in the building.

Hotel de Windketel

Often considered the smallest hotel of amsterdam, this tower only houses one room for just two of you! The tower used to be part of a waterworks complex consisting of 5 different buildings, but is now a freestanding hotel close to Westerpark. The inside of the tower looks very cosy and is designed by famous Dutch designers. Curious what that looks like? Please see the pictures of the inside on their official website http://www.windketel.nl.
