We were very tired from our journey to Amsterdam and we wanted to drop our bags off at the hotel and maybe get something to eat, so we arrived at the hotel reception and were greeted by a lovely receptionist who was more than happy to put us in our room straight away. The hotel is right where you need...

Hotel De Kerstekorrel is our favourite place to stay whenever we go to Dam - since discovering 'Amsterdam's Best Kept Secret' in 2007, we have stayed there 15 times. It's about time we spread the love and write a review. We were first attracted to the Gerstekorrel because of its convenient location : After a 40 minute flight from Luton...

If you just need somewhere to drop your bags, sleep and shower, this is a great hotel. It's just off Dam square on a fairly lively street, with lots of eateries nearby. The hotel itself is really clean, rooms are cosy and the beds are comfy. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful, and they let us check in...

I have stayed at this hotel now 5 times over the years. It's location is superb. Not far from the Centraal Station and 2mins from Dam Square. Shopping street is close. Coffee shops nearby. Riks around the corner is a favourite, great music. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and the rooms have been updated recently which was good. If...

I was taken away to Amsterdam as a surprise for my 35th Birthday, my girlfriend organised the whole trip but she was disappointed with what we got through Expedia when she knew that for only an extra 20EUR she could have got us a room at Die Port Van Cleve, which is next to the Magna Plaza behind the Royal...

Stayed 3 nights November 2011 - The location is great, just a few steps from Dam square, about a 10-minute walk from Amsterdal Centraal train station, and walking distance to tourist attractions. The room was exactly as expected for a budget hotel in Europe, and I will give it good reviews based on that expectation. It was clean, bed was...

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews. The location couldn't be better, right next to Dam square and in the middle of everything. There are loads of places to eat and there is a great little cake/cafe nearby. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were given a room in the annexe which is about 4 doors...

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.
