My wife stayed for 4 nights along with 3 other couples. The service was incredible and the location was ideal. Close to the tram station and central station. We were greeted graciously with our room facing the canal. What can I say...thank you for a memorable stay!

We stayed at the Grand for three days before going on a safari in Africa. Parts of the building is centuries old with old world elegance. Of course, all of the modern amenities one would desire is available. The room we had was somewhat small, but was fine for the short period of time we were there. Our friends also...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days. The location is incredible--just close enough to the downtown core, but far enough to enjoy the classic, quiet ambiance. The hotel was superb, service outstanding and overall experience was top notch. We would definitely recommend this hotel and the rooms were massive (by European standards) OUTSTANDING!

Located on the edge of the Red Light District has both benefits and cons, but the hotel is an oasis of calm, the service attentive and the rooms stylish and well appointed. A great place from which to explore the City.

The Sofitel legend The Grand Amsterdam is centrally located in Amsterdam.

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.
