The Best Gay Hotels in Amsterdam – LGBTQ Friendly

Amsterdam was the first city in the world where same-sex couples could be legally married. So on the 1st April 2001, four couples were married, a female couple and three male couples and that was the day that opened the door for countries around the world to make legally possible marriage between two men or two women. That celebration of freedom documented by journalists from around the world on 1 April, affirmed Amsterdam as a place of tolerance and liberty. Amsterdam has in fact since the 1600’s been a more tolerant city to minority cultures and this continues today. As a city we are relaxed and open, you are free to be together in any hotel, to show your love and affection, so every hotel is possible of course. That being said I would like to share with you The Best Gay Hotels in Amsterdam to help you make a selection that enriches your stay in this celebrated city of freedom.

In Amsterdam you can just be as you are, you don’t have to hide. That’s what I love about this city, you can see a punk or a prostitute, you see a skater, you see a trans person, you see all colours of people, all types are welcome, free and will not be looked at or judged for who they are. So realising that Amsterdam is a must-visit place as an LGBTQ couple and I welcome you and hopefully see you on our boat!
