I'll be in Amsterdam with my BF for a brief two night stay in September. I'm looking for a 4 or 5 start hotel in a centrally located area. After reading some of the posts here, I'm intrigued by Priceline which I've never used. As I'd rather not stay in a residential area, I was thinking that we'd probably like Central Station, Rembrandtplain, or Leidseplain areas best as they seem to have a lot of activity, restaurants, shops, etc. Which areas do they correspond to on the price line map? And please correct me if I'm wrong that these might be the best areas for me to stay given what I'm looking for. Conversely, if anyone has a specific hotel that they love which is under $350/night I'd be interested. Thanks!
