Location is excellent, 5 mins to train station, red light district and maybe 10 mins to other attractions. That was our second visit to Amsterdam and if we ever coming back we will stay... More

We stayed their for 4 nights and it was awesome. The staff was friendly, the room was nice and clean, and the location was great!! Close to everything, restaurants and shops all around and the train station is just 5 minutes away on foot. Everything you expect from a 3 stars hotel to be. ❤️

Best hotel so far in Amsterdam, good price, near train station, and attractions, excellent service and very clean, great breakfast in a lovely Pub next door. Rooms are very clean, with great tv and view of the canal.

Stayed here with my husband and our son (10) for 7 nights and we had a wonderful stay. I was worried given previous reviews but it looks like the ownership change did wonders! We stayed in a comfort triple (which costs a bit more but had windows that open but no view...fine as long as we can get fresh air!).... More

After reading bad reviews after I booked I was worried. But it's not as everyone made out. We had a lovely stay and friendly service. Breakfast was rubbish. But other than that. Very clean. Would stay again. Double room budget.

Stayed here for two nights during a city trip with my girlfriend. The room was quite small, with a boring view towards an alley (on the other side of which was an abandoned building). The shower was very small, and the tv not great (only dutch channels as well), but otherwise it was a fine visit. The breakfast was served... More

Service was very good, the only major issue we faced and were unhappy about was that after our second night, we came back to our room to find our two shampoo bottles and our soap bar missing. This was an issue, because we use specific products that we had carried with us from home. The late night receptionist said he... More

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.
