Went to Amsterdam over the weekend. The hotel is located right in the red light district and is very close to bars and other attractions. The room was small but clean and comfy. The breakfast buffet consists of small choices but it is pretty delicious. The only downside is that the walls are very thin. You can literally listen to...

Hotel is a nice boutique hotel in the Red Light District. Our room overlooked the canal. We had an ensuite room. It had a small kitchen with sink, stove & dishes. The church across the canal was beautiful & the sounds of the bells at night were relaxing. There were lots of places to eat & drink. Would definitely stay...

Great place with great staff. I had a very nice 2 night stay at Anco Hotel. The owners both Carl & Joseph are adorable, as well as their staff. A familiar atmosphere at all times, makes you fell very welcome. The single room was what expected for a 2 night stay. I can get noisy at times, but I had...

Very helpful owners! We loved having BBC on the tv too. Beautiful modern bath in the studio. Comfortable bed. Breakfast included in the price. As Americans we were over the top that there was an ice tray in the freezer to make ice for our drinks.

This was a small hotel hidden in the red light district of Amsterdam. I thoroughly enjoy the stay there. Owners are very accommodating and suite was large and beautifully decorated. Would stay again next time I'm here 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.

“Rooms at the back would be quieter”
