I cannot comment on the rooms as I never stayed here but the bar in this hotel has a brilliant atmosphere. Although it is a smoking bar you do not feel obliged to smoke and can enjoy a drink. They have some great DJ's on...More

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
