I really enjoyed my stay at the Anco Hotel. I had the second floor suite with a spectacular view looking out over the canal and a beautiful church across the canal. The room had a fridge, microwave and plenty of space. The room and building was clean and secure. I felt at home and the breakfast was great. The location...

Always a pleasure to Visit Amsterdam and the Guys at the Anco Hotel - Great Hosts and Friendly Service, Clean Rooms and an Excellent Breakfast - What More Can You Ask For! Under 10 minutes walk from Central Station and in the Heart of the Red Light District and Great for Shopping too!

This is where you need to stay while in Amsterdam. It's in a great location, very central, with great. Views of the canal and a beautiful church right across the way. Even though it's right in the middle of the tourist areas ( the red light district being a few streets down) you would never know it. I slept like...

The service in this hotel is really great and the coffee was yummy. It's a great location and a quick walk to the central train station. Not so crazy about the shared bathroom and shower but discovered after that you can request them.

Central location in Amsterdam. It is on the fringe of the (straight) red light district so be prepared for a lot of noise particularly if you are staying on the weekend. My studio view looked across the canal which was fantastic. Basic breakfast. An old building with charm. Staff generally friendly.

We have been staying at this hotel for over 25 years. We love the hotel- right in the heart of the city. 10 minute walk from the train station and 5 minutes from the main square (Dam Square). The hosts and staff are great and make sure you enjoy your stay. I could go on and on. The free breakfast...

Considering the price I paid (79 Euro/night), I was very happy with the Anco Hotel. Just to echo everyone else's comments, the hotel staff are great (I was very appreciative of the front dest staff person who dragged my 23kg suitcase up 3 flights of stairs) and the proximity to Amsterdam Central Station/restaurants/bars/ shopping can't be beat (well maybe it...

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
