Top 14 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Centrum, Amsterdam, Netherlands - Updated 2020

With its invitingly beautiful brick buildings, open skyline, rich history, and easy going attitude, Amsterdam is a city that’s hard to resist. The city is tied to water; it grew around its canals. Experiencing the city from a boat is an unbeatable experience altogether.

While most of the accommodations listed herein house just the basic necessities and would be better suited to solo travellers or those on a budget, if you’re looking for more luxury and/or group travel, Amsterdam has plenty of options for you too, check out our other article for relevant Airbnb options for your travel style here. Another important thing to note would be that most private accommodations have steep stairs and the absence of elevators, so consider booking (and packing) accordingly.

Here are the top 14 budget-friendly Airbnb vacation rentals in Centrum, Amsterdam:

1. Single attic room (from USD 50)

On the top floor of the guesthouse in a historical building, the attic room is available for one traveller alone. It has a bed, a shared bathroom, and Wi-Fi access. The entrance to the unit is private. The place may be compact, but its best suited to a solo traveller on a budget.

The central location lends you the ease of commuting to most places including museums, clubs, bars, and restaurants. There is a coffee shop right across the street as well.

Explore the beauty of Amsterdam

Beyond the cafes, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Red Light District, consider taking a walk along the Bloemenmarkt, a floating flower market, to be mesmerised by the scents, go shopping at the Cuypmarket, and sample the huge varieties of Dutch cheese. If you can get your hands on a rented bike, consider exploring the city by bike, the Dutch way! For bibliophiles, the Openbare Bibliotheek could be a delight since it’s the biggest library in Europe.
