I've just returned from a stag weekend where I stayed at the Monk Amsterdam apartments. We booked 3 apartments for 13 guys and I couldn't fault the place. The location is absolutely perfect for a stag party, right in the heart of the red district, near loads of bars and all the other friendly sights in Amsterdam :o) Apartments were...

When we made the booking we were promised an excellent location close to town, free parking, 4 bedrooms, outside space and various other things. We immediately agreed and put the booking in motion. However, much later that day we were informed that we had been accidentally double booked and we were to take another apartment that was ‘very similar’. Unfortunately...

I stayed here on a stag do last weekend and am really glad that I got recommended to stay here. Henk and all the staff were cracking and you're right in the thick of it so couldn't have asked anymore. It's not the Ritz inside but if you're in a group and looking to stay centrally with a decent amount...

Stayed here twice now and couldn't recommend enough. Clean, simple and reasonably priced. Great central location perfect for a weekend stay for a group of five or six. Friendly, helpful owner as well who makes the whole experience nice and easy. Anyone who doesn't rate this place is a tight fussbudget who wants 5 star accommodation but isn't prepared to...

Hi I stayed here for a hen party, and was disgusted to find bed bugs in the beds and on the walls, floor and ceiling of the apartments. My friends and I were bitten by these bugs, we were then cover in red itchy lumps!! We were offered no compensation or apology from the owners (who actually suggested that we...

We stayed here with a group of 17 people celebrating a 50th Birthday and found The Monk catered to all our needs. Our diverse group covered the ages from 14 to 70 and the Nieuwmarket covered all possible needs from supermarket, market stalls, cafes and a coffee shop right on the corner :) I have been visiting Amsterdam for 35...

Would like to say that this place definitely exceeded our expectations. We travelled in a group of 3. Did not really want to stay in a hostel, however we were in luck when we secured accomodation here. We actually came during a busy time as there was some Congress happening and alot of accomodation was fully booked for the week....

I stayed here from 6-10th December 2010 with my boyfriend (I know the review is a little late). The apartments are within walking distance of the station. You walk through (or behind) the Red Light District and through Chinatown right onto Nieuwmarkt Square. The square has a giant castle-looking building called In De Waag which is actually a restaurant. I...

I have rented one of Henks apartments many times over the years and I can thoroughly recommend this place. I am surprised at some of the reviews as I have never had any of these problems. The location is excellent, right on the beautiful New Market (and if the seedier side of the Dam is your thing, you are right...

I would never commend that anyone stay there. Very angry that we did not get the apartment we booked over the Internet i.e City Comfort # 1. We got an inferior apartment with low ceilings at the top of the building. The first day there we cleaned. Fat in the frying pan, stained cups, thick layer of dust under bed,...

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.
