I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a spring tour of Holland and Belgium with Tauck. The hotel is beautiful and service is excellent. The room was spacious and clean. The location is excellent and we could walk everywhere. The front desk staff had plenty of people there to help when you needed it and they were all...

Excellent service. Perfect central location close to quiet canal. Rooms good, spacious. The bed fas fantastic, very comfortable. I was not happy with the shower as it was hard to get the right temperature. All in all a great hotel, but very expensive and would have expected even better for this prize.

This hotel is located on a canal at the top of the red light area, but don't let this put you off because its a wonderful hotel. Check in staff are superb, rooms are first class, location is perfect, even the guys on the door are very friendly. I will only ever stay here when in Amsterdam. Not one complaint!

This hotel is truly gorgeous. Whilst it is called The Grand, the entrance is beautiful yet unassuming. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and I could not fault anyone who worked at the hotel. The room we had was really large for a city centre room. The decor was elegant yet modern. The bed, oh my, the bed. It...

Overall an excellent hotel with excellent facilities. Some tips you may not see on their webpage: - The border to the Red Light District is just 30m away to the North, so a somewhat "lively" neighborhood of bachelor parties and marijuana smokers has to be expected outside the closed off hotel area, but this is somewhat part of 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.
