UPDATE: Thank you all for your comments and recommendations. They were a huge help and are greatly appreciated.
I now have enough great info to make our decisions on where to stay in Amsterdam and am going to do 3 there and 1 in Haarlam.
I don't see how to close this thread so i will leave it open. If anybody or a moderator can let me know if I can close it but leave it available in the archives, let me know.
Now that I am signed up and see the great involvement in this group I hope I can help with questions in the future!
I have searched here and cannot find a thread on budget lodging in Amsterdam so please excuse me if I have overlooked one.
My wife and I will be in Amsterdam March 13, 14 and 15 2020 and we are looking for a room as central as possible for +-$100 a night,
The purpose of this post is firstly not for recommendations but is this possible?
We have traveled a lot in Europe and have always been able to find a room in or close to a big city center in good neighborhoods for that +-$100, most recently in Spain in October but Amsterdam looks tough...
If you do have any recommendations for budget lodging > than $100 please let us know.
I understand going outside of Amsterdam such as Harlaam which we are looking at but thought I would ask here first.
Also, we are not limited to Central Amsterdam, we have just been told that it is desirable to be as close to the Central Train Station as an optimal tram start and stop to anywhere in town.
Please comment if you have other opinions.
Please also comment if that price window is also possible in West, Southern Canal Belt and Southwest Amsterdam.
