We arrived as Pride was in full swing. A million people come to Amsterdam during this weekend and it was a great reintroduction for me to this city. We had an interior room which meant we go some sleep. All hotel rooms are different and have different prices, go with what you can and check on the view if that... More

Lovely hotel with great entrance & all the amenities. Boat tour, nice bar and brasserie, superb service. Rooms are larger than you should expect in Europe. Overall, exactly the kind of attention you'd expect to receive at a 5-start.

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.
