Last minute hotel for this weekend.... Can anyone help....!!

Well ive just had my plans shifted around and so i have a free weekend from 13th to 15th of september.. So i thought i would get a cheap flight and head back to amsterdam once again for yet another visit... I have done this before at the last minute and always been able to get a twin room for myself and my wife but it seems this weekend i am out of luck.. I know amsterdams hotels sell out quickly but i just cant seem to find anything.. Can anyone help with any ideas of where to find a cheap room for two nights budget is around €100 to €150 per night or does anybody of any apartments for rent...Just out of interest is there some sort of event on in amsterdam this weekend which justifies why every affordable room is booked even the hostels are full any ideas or suggestions are welcome and most appreciated.. Urgency is required as i cant book the flights until i get something lined up and there only 9 seats left on the plane....

I believe it's IBC Conference on those dates which makes it almost impossible to get a room and if u do find one it can be very pricey 😕

Yep sorrry Shaun but IBC means no rooms for you or me. Even fleapits put their prices up horribly. You can try staying inn Haaelem, Leiden or Zaandam

Perhaps consider Airbnb if you haven't already. There are a few places still available in your price range in the De Pijp neighborhood through Airbnb. Ron's advice seems best though.

This place has vacancy in Alkmaar (you'll recognize the hotel name) for less than 200 euros for the two nights.

500 m from the train station with a 20-25 minute ride to the Amsterdam CS.

500 m from High Times Coffeeshop.

Deli Indonesian Restaurant is one of the highest rated Indonesian Restaurants in Holland - right off the main square where the cheese market is held every Friday morning.

Have a look at Haarlem. Nice place in its own right but only about 15 mins by train to Amsterdam.
