B&B 1680 is a Family home and that is exactly how we felt....Like Family. Centrally located in the heart of the red light district but do not let this put you off. Its not a problem at all. Just turn right out of the hotel and you are in Dam Square in a matter of minutes. We stayed in the... More

We went with this B&B as it was a good price for the location. It was important to us to stay in the centre of Amsterdam and this was spot on for that, right on the edge of the Red Light District. Although it did take 4 calls to Dennis until we arrived successfully! Walking directions from Central Station would've... More

Stayed here for the weekend of ADE. Very hard to find the hotel as there is no sign on the door. Once found we left our bags as check in was not until 14:00. Room was fine for what we needed, but the bathroom was very small and the "double" bed was two singles pushed together. Comfy enough though. The... More

Location was great. We arrived very early and they allowed us to leave our luggage until check in time. Once we had checked in communication was poor - mainly through their intercom. White room faced out onto the street and was noisy. Breakfast was left outside the room the night before and was basic.

We stayed here for 4 nights, and paid a bit extra for the black and white room. I personally expected something quite exquisite I think, but I was a tad disappointed. It boasted a luxury bathroom, this was not the case in my opinion. It was basic, gloomy, and had leaking pipe work under the sink. It boasted too, a... More

We recently stayed at this B&B, the location is fantastic and although it is on the same street as the red light district which is 5 mins away the noise is very minimal, the hotel isn't very well signposted we only knew where to go by taking a picture of the building before we went from the website and finding...

Location is very centrally located, was a little hard to find since there was no sign at the door. Staff was friendly and room was available upon arrival. The room was very basic though, only one window opens and there is no air conditioning due to the building not being allowed to have it, as we were explained. It lacked... More

Lovely B and B. we stayed in the white room for two nights-very pretty and cute, little but enough. Great location in the red light district next to the hash museum. No sign but B and B name stated on buzzer. Basic breakfast but alright with fresh fruit and breads with different spreads. Would visit again.

Location was great, just on the edge of Red Light District, it is quieter than we expected. We originally wanted the white room but it was taken, however when we arrived, it was vacant, so we were a little bummed.

It was very difficult to find the place as the signeage was so small. It would help a great deal if the management gives a few landmarks like saying it's smack in the red light district and it is next to the Hash museum. The interior was a little gloomy and the breakfast was very basic. They were nice people... More

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.
