I really liked my stay at the Greenhouse Effect. It's a modest priced hotel located in a renovated Dutch home where the ground floor serves as a bar on the south side and a coffeeshop on the north side. The hotel portion is situated in the upper floors with themed rooms. I'd reserved the loft room on the top floor...

Very noisy with windows open in the summer (no AC). Red light district nearby as are all shops. i would stay farther from...

It´s a way to stay in the middle of Masterdam at a moderate place. People are very welcoming, friendly and supportive. Room´s are simple, but clean and mine was even equipped with a kitchen. Moderate, but ok.

Lovely friendly place even though it was a little difficult to find add the reception is in the Bones and Company bar next door. Typical continental breakfast which was more than enough. The only negative thing i have to say is that the cleaner started a little too early for us ie 7:30am :-(

Pros: - As central as you can get in Amsterdam while staying on a budget. Also quite close to the main train station - Good breakfast and great bar area - Relatively good staff Cons: - Can get very loud at night, especially if facing the alley. The smell from the street can be quite strong as well. - Slightly...

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.
