Staff were very friendly. Location was great. Felt the price was quite costly for the facilities on offer but the price probably reflects higher costs in central Amsterdam and due to the prime location. Didn't like the stairs but these steep staircases were prevalent in...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the

of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
