You are looking for a 3x or 4x person room , depending on age of the kids, in one of the most expensive months within a very expensive hotel city.

Honestly Id be hard pressed to find a double room in February with your budget.

---I'd consider an apt thru Airbnb or similar

---Consider staying in a close by interesting city such as Haarlem or Leiden which will be much cheaper.

---Consider raising your budget as far as Amsterdam

If you give us your daft dates we can take a look. Maybe Ron will have a good suggestion in the morning?

In the US almost no one would bat an eye with a family of 4 inc two kids checking into a double room.

Not so in ansterdam. That would be very rare. Extra beds in a room can cost a small fortune.

You will need a more expensive family or triple room at least.

We are staying at Meininger Hotel Amsterdam City West next week. Its going to be our first time staying there so i can't review but what i have read on tripadvisor so far is positive, except for the scratchy walls. They have got quad and triple rooms. Breakfast charged separately. Great family policies esp with kids. And the Amsterdam Sloterdijk station right next door - easy to go anywhere including the airport. There is also a Starbucks and mini mart at the station.

I did a dummy booking on their website for 15-19 June and it will cost EUR777.72 if you pay upfront. If one of the kid is less than 6yo, the price goes down to EUR648.10. Even cheaper if both kids are less than 6yo. You get the idea.

You should include the ages of the kids.
