We really enjoyed this hotel in the red light district. Karl and Josef made us feel very much at home. Super friendly and welcoming. Our room had a lovely view of the canal and Old Church. The lobby and patio are fun places to hang...More
I stayed with 2 friends at Anco Hotel for 3 nights, about a month ago.

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

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.
