The 81-room Conscious Hotel Vondelpark is the sister hotel to the Conscious Hotel Museum Square, and has a similar trendy, quirky feel. The lobby here also features a vibrant green plant wall, but rustic wood floors and a small bar/lounge allow the space to feel a bit more warm and inviting. The guest rooms are a bit smaller than those at Museum Square, but they're bright, fresh, and comfortable with cozy beds adorned in crisp white bedding. Floral wall murals add a vibrant pop of color, and unique eco-conscious touches abound -- tables are made from recycled coffee cup holders, and the bathroom counters are actually constructed from a recycled pressed-paper material. The hotel does lack certain amenities, such as a fitness center, but guests have access to the nearby David Lloyd Overtoom fitness center for a daily fee. A stylish breakfast bar serves an organic breakfast, and afterward visitors can rent one of the electric scooters to traverse the city. It's a good value, despite the location in residential Vondelpark.
Close to boutiques and local eateries, but most attractions have to be reached via tram or taxi
Conscious Hotel Vondelpark gets its name thanks to its location near Vondelpark, a popular park featuring bike paths and beautiful lawns for picnicking. The neighborhood itself is residential, with 19th century architecture, and there's not much for tourists in the immediate vicinity, though guests can live like the locals and experience a plentitude of food and drink options.
Marked by cobblestone roads, street-level canals and an abundance of coffee shops (which are most often known for something other than coffee), Amsterdam is both a quiet and lively city without the pretention of European metropolises.
In the summer, visitors can enjoy live music at the Openluchttheater, an open-air venue at the Vondelpark, or the Roots Music Festival. The Gay Pride parade also takes place in the summer, and the city's many museums -- including the Van Gogh Museum or the Anne Frank House, where Frank and her family hid from the Nazis during World War 2 -- are popular year-round. Visitors in April can experience Queen's Day, which celebrates the queen's birthday and includes a massive flea market, parties, and outdoor concerts.
Noordermarkt is known for its antiques, and Brouwerij de Prael is a recommended stop for beer enthusiasts. Fun dining spots include the famous sandwich spot Van Dobben, as well as Pancake Bakery, which offers more than 70 types of pancakes and a slew of other breakfast goods.
