If you are moving to Amsterdam or thinking of planning a vacation there, then you will probably be wondering about your accommodation for your stay. Just like accommodation in Paris, a serviced apartments london or Brussels hostel, renting an Amsterdam apartment or hotel for your stay will be far pricier than choosing somewhere to stay outside of the city.
Staying outside of Amsterdam will mean that if you want to visit Amsterdam itself, you will need to travel into the city. You should certainly bear this in mind when you are looking for a hotel because if you are not on a good transport route into the city then transport costs will end up being so high that you will not make any saving at all.
Choosing a hotel in Haarlem is a good choice for many tourists because this is a good central location for many landmarks. You can take a short train trip to the centre of Amsterdam if you wish to explore the city, and other popular towns are nearby. If you want to get to the beach, then you will be pleased to know that there is a beach nearby too. The town of Haarlem itself is a beautiful place to visit and you can have a great time in the town itself without even venturing out to Amsterdam itself.
Delft is a great little hotel, which is located in close proximity to Hague, Sheveningen and Haarlem. You can also visit Rotterdam quite easily from this hotel too. You are also close enough to Amsterdam to get to the centre itself.
When people visit Holland and stay in Amsterdam, they tend to only stay in Amsterdam centre itself because there is enough to do in the city to keep them occupied for the duration of their stay.

If you do stay outside of Amsterdam, you should make the most of being outside the city and explore the less tourist like areas of Holland.
When you are staying outside of Amsterdam, you will also be able to travel to anywhere you like within Holland because the public transport system is so well organized and structured. If you have planned a day trip outside of Amsterdam, you will be pleased to know that it will be rare for you to experience delays to your schedule caused by the public transport network. You should make the most of the available public transport passes that you can purchase in Holland to give you the freedom to travel when you are staying in this beautiful country.
