The Doelen is at the heart of Amsterdam. We were told that this was the first hotel to operate in the city and though we could see its age in some of the woodwork this was not the case in much of the hotel. The bedrooms and bathrooms were completely modern, clean, and beautiful. The Swych Restaurant overlooks the canal...

Visited just before it had been done up, lovely hotel! Kind staff,great location, minutes walk to the shopping centre and minutes walk in the opposite direction to the red light district and coffee shops! Wifi worked great, no parking with the hotel. Visited in winter and the rooms were warm and cosy. Would stay again.

The check in process was efficient and easy. The gentleman who escorted us to our room gave us a nice history of the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that this hotel was in fact the oldest in Amsterdam (more than 600 years old).

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.
