In one of our recent blog posts, we recommended exploring Netherlands‘ quaint beauty through different kinds of tours. But in order for you to truly enjoy the Netherlands, you’ll have to stay in a Muslim-friendly hotel with preferably a halal restaurant. In all honesty, we did not find any hotel with a CrescentRating or Salam Standard Certificate. Nevertheless, we were still able to find hotels in Amsterdam for Muslims. These cozy Amsterdam hotels lack Muslim-friendly facilities, but all of them at least serve halal breakfast.
Here is our list of cozy Amsterdam hotels that Muslims would enjoy for their breakfast, interiors and surroundings.
