The best food în town, combined with a great service, and a spectacular view. On top, the location is very good, just near the central station.

Weatherspoons quality food at very high prices. For those not familiar with weatherspoons it's a British pub chain that sells food and drink at extremely cheap prices but you get exactly what you pay for. Well in this place the food was low quality yet the prices were sky high. Don't get me wrong, it was edible but certainly not... More

The steak's were really good tasty and cooked to perfection and the service was good. Although more expensive than we would normally pay in the UK it was worth it.

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.
