The location of this hotel is in the middle of the red light district. However if you are inside you have no idea that you are staying in the heart of Amsterdam. The place is very clean. The interior is a little bit " old school" like carpets on the floor from 1967! Try the restaurant. Tip; Pumpkin soup with...

The staff at this hotel simply could not be nicer. Without exception they are welcoming, and have an unforced helpfulness. I had an issue with my room the first time I stayed. It was above a storeroom or kitchen entrance and deliveries began at 7am and were noisy. I was really fed up about this because I'd planned to sleep...

The Sofitel Legend in located near to everything in central Amsterdam. Renovated in an historic building, the facilities are 1st class. The rooms are a good size and our bathroom was excellent - in three parts with a separate shower not always found in Europe. The bed is superb, the furnishing are all top quality as are the bathroom accessories....

I'd only ever been to Amsterdam on stag do's, as a young man on a budget, staying in the cheapest hotels and living on burgers.

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.
