As we lived in the Netherlands we haven’t stayed in hotels here. However, we still have some general tips for you.
Amsterdam is the biggest tourist place, and accommodation is quite expensive. It can also be hard to find affordable places to stay during peak seasons or festivals. So you might want to book your accommodation in advance. Also make sure to check AirBnb for Amsterdam, as this can be affordable.
The only tips we can give you for the rest of the Netherlands is that in every town and city there will be places to stay, again, check AirBnb. There are also many camping spots around the country.
The Netherlands is not famous for its food, and dutch food is not the best. There are a few things you should try while your here, such as Bitterballen, fried balls that goes perfect with beer.
Even if Dutch food isn’t great, there are loads of good restaurants in Amsterdam. Many people from around the world, especially Surinam, Indonesia and Turkey, who have brought they’re food culture with them.
