Checked this to this hotel with two friends for two nights in November 2016. Stayed in a 3 bedded room on the 3rd floor. Firstly the positives: 1 - Good location - very central, adjacent to Dam Square. Whis means it's really close to everywhere you might one want to go for a short trip to the city. 2 -...

The ONLY good part is that the Hotel's Location is great. The biggest negative part is there is staircase only - no lift. We got room at 4th floor so have to climb four floors along with the luggage. Imagine going up and down four floors again & again to carry your luggage piece by piece. They even don't have...

This hotel is great value situated in the heart of Amsterdam half way between the Dam Square and Canal Strasse. It is about a 10 min walk from Central Station (or a couple of minutes by tram). I stayed for a week. Rooms were small but were very clean and with an ensuite shower and toilet. All the staff were...

This is a fantastic hotel in the middle of the city, 10 minutes walk from the train station which goes to and from the airport. The rooms were very clean and en-suite with plenty of space. A nice warm room with towels and TV not that you'll need it. The rooms are very secure with card monitors for each room...

Our room was clean and comfortable with everything you need but nothing you don't, like shower gel?! Our room overlooked the street and it was quite noisy in the evenings. I was glad we were there in the autumn so we could keep our window closed at night. As there is no air conditioning, just a fan, I think I...

Staff very helpful and friendly, good breakfast. Hotel on a busy street, with shops, pubs and restraunts, so if you require a quiter room ask for...

Great girls weekend. The location was fantastic although it is quite noisy all night so you will need earplugs! Staff were really friendly, they made a mistake with my booking taking payment from the wrong card but this was quickly rectified and we were provided with complimentary drinks for the error. The breakfasts was lovely and the kitchen was even...

Reviewed 30 September 2016

I had booked this hotel with the knowledge that it was close to Dam Square and so likely would be noisy but expected the noise to come from the street - not from within the hotel. The walls are very thin and you could hear everything from the hallway or other rooms. We did have a room with a window...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are located in the center of the oldest part of Amsterdam which is a Unesco World Heritage site because of the thousands of contiguous buildings built prior to the 19th Century. Although Amsterdam is famous for the architecture of tall narrow buildings it does indeed have an impact on...

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.
