Hotel/nightlf- for adults;Canal,OldCt,Leidseplein area

Any recommendations as to which area of Amsterdam has a cool,elegant , romantic ,cafe and "local" feeling to book a hotel?

Looking for a grown-up feel,not the kids or college crowd! ( as if I'm so sophisticated!)

Thanks

An interesting question. And I am guessing by it that you have never been before?

First I would read this link

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g188590-c156882/Amste…

There are more quiet areas. Something in the Jordaan? Or out by Museumplein?

If quiet is what you want.

But I think its the wrong question.

Most areas of AMS are lively. Most are full of young people. Most areas have a very high energy vibe.

I'd just get the hotel you want. After reading that link on neighborhoods.

Then just get out and walk around.

Your question did make me think though.

The Jordaan. I think that may be what you are looking for.

I would go for the Artis Zoo area in the center., also calles Plantage

There are small nice hotels, a few nice local bars. No college kids but a nice green atmosphere
