Logical suggestion would be Movenpick Hotel not far away on the coast.

How about the IBIS hotel right on platform 1? Hop out of hotel and onto train.

Ibishotels.com or www.accorhotels.com

The Movenpick is behind the station, away from the centre, on a canal, not the coast (which is a long way from Amsterdam ). It is convenient if you are taking a cruise but probably not for what you want.

If you want to be near the centre as well I would look for a hotel in the Jordaan, which is only a short walk from the station, and a nicer area to stay than around the station itself.

Alternatively, especially if you are flying out fairly early, book a hotel at Schiphol - there are several actually at the airport, and get the train in to the centre and return back to your hotel in the evening so you are right there for your morning flight - saves the risk of train problems in the morning and gives you a bit longer in the morning to sort yourself out.

Right, canal not coast. But OK cruise or no I would think.

You can see the Hotel Victoria from the train station. The Dam, heart of Amsterdam, is a 10 minute walk on the city's major boulevard, the Damrak.

I have stayed at Schiphol area hotels - there is an Ibis and an Ibis-lite next door, an ETAP - nice rooms but cheaper than more fanciet Ibis - frequent shuttle buses right to terminals. I think rates are cheaper than in town and you are at the airport in the morning. To faciliate transfers you can check your heavy luggage in the left luggage at the airport and just hop the shuttle bus to the hotel and of course hop the airport trains into town for the day and night.

Hotel Avenue is under a 10 minute walk from centrale station, and reasonably priced. I’d stay there again if I was looking to stay in that area.

I also vote for Hotel Brouwer! Very small hotel with a great price within walking distance to the train station. This hotel encapsulates why I have gone to Amsterdam in the past and why I will return! Love the ambience, people are friendly, like the breakfast room, like the location, love the price!
