Airbnb on Friday accused the city of Amsterdam of acting illegally after it banned vacation rentals in its central old town.

In the other neighbourhoods, vacation rentals will be allowed only with a special permit, for up to 30 days a year, to groups of no more than four people. Amsterdam's city council has been vocal about curbing mass tourism and describes it as the nuisance caused by tourists in the old city centre.
