Hotel prices don’t change much through the year in Amsterdam, with the only bargain time during winter. Outside of winter it’s hard to find last-minute bargains, so the best advice is to book as early as possible, since prices will tend to keep rising as the date approaches.
Finding a room in person once you arrive is almost always possible, but all the better and cheaper places will be filled up so this is a city where reservations are strongly advised.
