Travelling or relocating with a pet can be a challenge. Many apartments and hotels don’t allow animal guests either because they fear for damage or simply that the facilities are not suitable. Luckily many places in Amsterdam do accept pets and here I take a look at some of these options. All the suggestions below are fully furnished properties with kitchen and bathroom facilities. Uilities and WiFi access is included in the price. Bed- linen and towels are provided just like in a hotel along with regular cleaning of the apartment.
World Fashion Apartments https://www.worldfashionapartments.com/locations/amsterdam are probably the most animal- friendly short stay building in Amsterdam. Unlike other developments they do not limit on the number of animal companions joining in your apartment (within reason of course). They charge the same extra nightly fee if you have one pets or four. And there is also a friendly English- speaking vet located in the building https://vetcare.amsterdam/?lang=en . The complex offers 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments with balcony access close to Leylaan train and metro station as well as several bus and tram lines. Parking is available at extra cost either in their own car park or the public one opposite.
If price is a consideration or you want to be out of town then Htel Amstelveen https://htelapartments.com is a good option. Only one pet is allowed per apartment. They offer studios and 1-2 bedrooms in Amstelveen where parking is also available free of charge. The apartments are larger but slightly more expensive in their Buitenveldert location with on street parking at extra cost. Guests from both complexes have access to a spa and sauna located in Amstelveen as well as on-site gym and fitness centre. For your pet you pay an additional amount pet night.
For those wanting to be more downtown the Dappermarkt building through The Short Stay group is also animal friendly. https://www.shortstayreservations.com/en/amsterdam/plantage-east/ . This building charges an extra night’s rent for your pet. They offer 1 and 2 bedroom properties in the Plantage district in Amsterdam East close to the Tropenmuseum and Oosterpark. There is parking near at extra cost.
A slightly more expensive option is New Amsterdam close to Amsterdam Zuid station https://corporatehousingfactory.com/newamsterdam/ . This building is especially popular with those working in the Zuidas business district wanting to walk to work or people needing fast access to Schiphol. They offer studios and 1-2 bedroom properties charging an extra nightly fee for pets. Studios start from 135 EUR + taxes per night but get booked very quickly with more chance of a larger apartment being available. Parking is available on-site at extra cost whilst guests have access to the building’s private gym with pool.
Amsterdam itself is a very pet friendly city. You often see cats in restaurants, shops and bars which is a positive sign there are no mice droppings near your food! Many residential blocks have completely enclosed internal cat-friendly gardens with easy access via balconies or trees to the areas around and below. Cat In A Flat offers paid cat feeding and petting services when you go away https://nl.catinaflat.com .Dogs are welcome in most parks so long as the owners pick up after them, and there are special dog- specific areas. There are several dog walking services. There is no longer dog tax applied in the city of Amsterdam.
