In the city of canals and coffee shops, one of the best ways to experience life in the Dutch capital is to live like a local. From a studio in the bustling city centre to a peaceful houseboat on the water, it's easy to find Amsterdam apartments for rent.

Visitors find that renting a self catering or serviced flat is a wonderful way to escape humdrum hotel life. With no reception and no curfew, apartments afford guests with more privacy and convenience than a hotel, hostel or pension. Usually located on quiet side streets just off the main thoroughfares, a short term apartment can help you avoid the swarms of tourists. Available at any price and for any number of people, you'll wonder why you ever chose formal accommodation.
