Accommodation in Amsterdam

A friend and I I are spending a few days in Amsterdam in September. I am finding it very hard to get reasonably priced accommodation. We are in our 60s.

We would like a twin bedroom that is clean, central and has own bathroom. We were hoping to get something for under £75, or is that an unreasonable expectation. A lot of it seems it be already booked out.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted. Many thanks.

Make sure not to go during the IBC conference, 12-17 september. And read the Priceline bidding for 4* thread (last fewpages or so)

That was our date range, so thank you. I now I understand why so many places are booked out.

The IBC can ruin even the best laid plan. Even with a budget of about 88 Euro, it can still be hard to find something with a private bath at the weekend. Whatever you decide book early and have a read through this as well tripadvisor.com/Travel-g188590-c115136/Amste…

If you do a search here on the IBC you should find many threads where this is discussed.

Some advice and some success stories.

Take a quick look and I do mean quick at Priceline Express deals and Hotwire for your dates.

Just see if anything within reason is being offered. They will be un-named but somewhat identifiable hotels at a certain star level and area for a set price.

Usually a much lower price

And of you see anything remotely close------book it.
