Gay hotels and B&Bs

The Golden Bear
Amsterdam's oldest gay hotel (formerly the Hotel Unique) opened in 1948. The one-star property occupies two 18th Century buildings in central Amsterdam, a block off the Prinsengracht.

Every room is different at the ITC, a two-star gay hotel in a renovated canal house on the Prinsengracht. The hotel has its own bar and is near Amsterdam's gay nightlife districts.

Other places of interest
