Disgusting!!!!!!! Dirty, old, everything broken, bedside lights not working, curtains broken, TV not working at all, towels with holes... The only good point is the position, very close to the station and the city centre.

The hotel is so overpriced for what you get but the location was so central to everything! 5 min walk to Centraal Station and Damrak street. 5 min walk to the red light district, loads of coffee shops, cocktail bars and nightlife stuff to do nearby but it's very loud when trying to sleep. The staff were friendly enough. We...

I only chose this for the location, perfect for centre of town and 5 min walk from station. I didnt experience any bed bugs that i have read about in other reviews. Friendly staff upon arrival. Negatives are steep stairs, no good if your old or disabled. There is no lift . The room was small and noisy, although we...

We stayed here for 1 night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very Central to everything and the staff bent over backwards to help us. Breakfast was really good and they let us leave our bags before and after our stay. Not upmarket by any means but great value for money .

I have spent 4 nights in this hotel with my Mum. The hotel is really simple, do not expect anything amazing. The breakfast included was simple as well but good (bread, butter, jam, cheese, ham, coffee, juices etc). The room was a bit small but quite ok and really clean with a big bathroom. The real value of this hotel...

Certainly they were very small and the building is very old and really needs major renovattion but we had lovely views of the canal and surrounding area. Staff were friendly and helpful, so centrally located. Dont be scared to go here, we were and it was nowhere near...

Just got back from a trip here to which I can only describe as awful. As we walked up the stairs towards the hotel we were greeted by a ignorant man on the reception who was very miserable. We got our key to the room which was a 4 bed and as we walked up the spiral staircase we could...

I stayed in this hotel on a quick trip to The Dam to see a gig at The Melkweg. Location was ideal for us. A short walk from the railway station and an even shorter walk to all our favourite bars in the area. Suzies Salloon, the Sailor bar Etc. You just step out of the door and away you...

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.
