    A 20 minute tram/taxi ride is a PITA - especially last thing at night when stoned!

    thats my concern and the prices go through the roof booking a hotel in the centre postive is tho that the train station is only 5 mins from the hotel.

    Take a look at Expedia... you can narrow down the hotel search to Dam Square vicinity which is pretty much where you want to be... and your price range will fit the bill too

    I'm just back from the dam 2 weeks ago. This time stayed at the cordial hotel. It's a really nicely furbished hotel. I recommend it greatly

    You wont need to pay for any taxis mate unless you're heading home after midnight. The tram services in the dam put all of the UKs rail lines to shame. If I can remember correctly you can buy an all day met ticket for 3.50 euro.

    Personally I think Air B&B is the way to go. Me and my girlfriend went to the dam earlier this year and stayed in a great flat which cost us £300 for 5 nights

    The main red light area and coffee shops are within 200 metres in all direction of the Oude Church

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...71!4d4.8982067

    The tourist area is Dam square

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...16!4d4.8936582

    Depends on your priories. I have stayed in the The Room Mata, Ijock - posh but a bit of a walk, and Ibis next door to Cetraal Station. Ibis was a great location but basic.

    Local hispters live in De Pijp. lot's of nice bars and restaurants for the young, very attractive Dutch.

    I stayed in some real nice apartments. You get a bed room, bathroom and a kitchen and it is well priced.

    The ones i stayed in were about a 20 min walk from Dam Square. To be honest, i think the centre of dam is a bit over rated. Yes there's a high concentration of coffeeshops but you can find some real gems as you venture out of the center too ;-)

    Hotel ibis central isn't bad priced and right in the mix,but it is a chain so will be no smoking in there etc. But I found it for about £200 I'm going next week to hotel Atlantis 30 min walk to red light district but from the hotel to there is lined with coffee shops by the looks of it on apple maps,Evan if I'm walking 10 mins till the next one that's 3 coffee shops n then ya nice and lean for the days antics hope it helps you.
