Known for its artistic backgrounds, picturesque canal systems, and narrow, vibrantly coloured houses, Amsterdam, the country’s capital, is a hotspot for tourism in the Netherlands. A popular place for tourists looking to get away from car-polluted cities to biking-friendly regions, Amsterdam boasts some of the best cycling tracks around.

With famous tourist attractions such as the Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House, Amsterdam has something for everyone. Plenty of canals make for great waterside housing experiences, which could also explain the multitude of designer apartments and chic studios in the city.

Planning a relaxing getaway with friends to amazing Amsterdam? Here are our top 15 Airbnb recommendations for a great stay in some of the prettiest designer apartments and quirky studios in Amsterdam:

1. Amsterdam house with a view (112 USD)

Up to four guests can put this sensational Amsterdam house to best use, a location complete with a wonderful series of amenities, and a wonderful view of the nearby waterway. Three beds across two bedrooms allow you to spread out and make the place your own, for the complete duration of your stay. You’ll also enjoy a placid removal from downtown Amsterdam, for those looking to characterize their stay in the Netherlands with astute rejuvenation. Even so, the Amsterdam Central Station is less than a twenty minute journey by public transportation, so you’re never far from a social flavor of excitement, if you’re looking to typify your stay in Amsterdam with a thrill that only local hospitality can provide. The local canal is always a wonderful swim during summer and select fall months, and the local forest is always waiting to provide you a comfortable trek through some of nature’s best. Free parking on the premises headlines an enviable list of amenities, one which also includes free parking on the premises, and complimentary onsite Internet access. Pair these amenities with a flexible cancellation policy, allowing you to revise your lodging plans as your Amsterdam agenda changes, and you’re left with a winning combination of hospitality and local culture!
