My husband and I, no kids. We need 2 bedrooms, or at least a fold-out option in a living area, because of snoring issues, etc., alas.
Our dates are split for Amsterdam--haven't booked the final flights yet:
First option: Amsterdam sleeping 9/20 thru 9/23, then go to Bruges for sleeping 9/24- 9/25, returning to A'dam for 9/26 thru 9/30.
Second option: Amsterdam sleeping 9/27 thru 9/30, Bruges sleeping 10/01- 10/02, returning to A'dam for sleeping 10/03 thru 10/06.
I am looking at airbnb, and now VRBO and both are very limited in offerings. We have always gotten better value with airbnb or vbro options (as opposed to hotels) because of our need for 2 rooms but in Amsterdam there is not a lot to choose from that is not pricey!
I'm a stickler for location in travel...it makes such a difference. My first choice here is Jordaan, but thereafter the Southern Canal Belt, I think, but I'm not getting a lot of feedback on that. I can't even find it by that name on either airbnb or vrbo so I don't even know what "neighborhoods" might describe it!
Any help would be wonderful--clearly I don't have a lot of accomodation possibilities at this point! I'd like to stay at $200 or less but that is perhaps a pipe dream. Which is what will be offered to me on arrival I suppose.
