Where to Stay & Go

Amsterdam's main Gay Areas
Amsterdam is not a big city; most venues are at walking distance. For accomodation however, you may easily end up in the entire wrong part of town. As to the gay areas, We cut out the part of the centre, where 99% of the gay venues can be found. We divided them into four main gay area's. Where you can find these area's you can see on the overview map.

Amstel Area: Dutch
Amstel area
The Amstel-area is, together with the Reguliersdwarsstraat area the trendy neighborhood. It is situated around the Rembrandtplein, a square with lots of terasses outside in summertime. Here you wil find many gay bars, from dance-bars to cosy small bars where people meet.

hotel info
The smaller regular hotels can be found in this neighbourhood. Some pleasant gayhotels are nearby. It's also the area to rent a houseboat.

Local Area: Kerkstraat
Kerkstraat area
The Kerkstraat-area is one of the oldest gay-areas around town, and is situated near the Leidseplein, where the Casino and City Theatre are. The Leidseplein is the area for most straight people to go out. The Kerkstraat is a cosy, gay friendly neighbourhood, and currently is undergoing a new revival. You will also find most of the gay hotels here.

hotel info
One of the rural areas in town. During the weekends it's crowded here. Plenty of Luxury hotels; most gayhotels are also in this area. Close by to the museum quarter and the Vondelpark.

Other Areas

You may want to consider staying at


Convention Centre (RAI) area


Not our choice to stay at if you would like to explore town, average taxi fee around 25 euro's one way and up; too far to go by bike.

Schiphol airport area


Again a long long way from town. Would only stay there for a short stop between flights. It's not a very warm area to be at.
