Ambassade Hotel

Why it made the list

Situated in a quiet, safe residential part of the world-famous Canal Belt, this elegant magnet for literati also offers a family room (sleeps 4) and three triple rooms.

Hotel Estheréa

Why it made the list

Warm and welcoming with a faint whiff of flowers, like a bosomy hug from your favorite aunt, Hotel Estheréa combines great location and a warm décor with the authentic feel of a family-run establishment. We like the family-friendly configuration of beds in larger rooms: 15 rooms (including 8 interconnecting rooms) sleep up to 3 or 4 people, and under-two’s stay free. And there’s free hot chocolate, fruit water and cookies – all day long.

Hotel V Frederiksplein

Why it made the list

The loft apartments at this Dutch-owned boutique hotel just outside the picturesque Eastern Canal District offer good value for families: they come kitted out with kitchenettes, sleeper couches and sitting- and dining areas with fireplaces. Because there is no elevator and you’ll have to climb some stairs (nothing too strenuous, mind), this is a better option for families with teens and/or older kids who don’t require a stroller.
