Location, transportation & parking

Located in the historical heart of the city, Hotel Amsterdam has a unique location in the middle of everything. Famous Dam Square, the true center of Amsterdam, is a stone's throw away from the hotel while Amsterdam Centraal Station is within walking distance at just 700 meters from our doorstep.

On Dam Square, you'll find The Royal Palace, the New Church as well as Madame Tussaud’s wax statues museum.

The NYSE Euronext Amsterdam Stock Exchange, the Beurs van Berlage cultural center as well as Amsterdam’s leading department store, De Bijenkorf, are opposite the hotel. 


All parts of the city can easily be reached when staying at Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw. All major streetcar lines bound for the major points of interest including the RAI Exhibition and Convention Center stop in front of the hotel or very close by.

We do not have our own shuttle service, but there are quite a few easy options to get to the hotel from the airport and back.

The Connexxion Schiphol Airport hotel shuttle stops on Dam Square, right across the street from us. Between 6 am and 9 pm a bus leaves for the city every half an hour. Cost is € 17.00 one way, and € 27.00 return. Duration is about 45 minutes. Alternatively, trains to and from the airport leave at regular intervals all day long. Cost is € 4.30 one way, and it'll take only 20 minutes to arrive at Amsterdam Central Station. Taking a taxi to get to us from the airport is of course your most convenient option, but also most expensive at prices between € 45.00 and € 60.00.

We can also arrange for you to be picked up at the airport at a set price of € 55.00. Please contact our reception by email to set this up. In your email please mention the name your reservation is in, your arrival date, your flight number with its estimated time of arrival and the cell phone number you can be reached on once you've landed.


Parking your car in the inner city is a bit of a challenge. Although there are many parking structures in the vicinity of the hotel (Bijenkorf, and the parking structure at the hotel on Dam Square) cost will always be at least € 50.00 per 24 hours. Of course, it's less expensive to park outside of the city center. However at our reception desk you can purchase exit tickets to Q-Park Nieuwendijk, just a short walk from the hotel, that'll allow you to park there at € 30.00 per 24 hours.
