The best thing about the hotel is the location. 5 minute walk from the red lights district and Amsterdam Central Station and surrounded by nice bars and restaurants. The canals around it are beautiful. The staff is REALLY helpful and they were very nice to us when our friend got sick after quite a few muffins.... The rooms are pretty...

The pictures on trip advisor make the hotel look nicer than it actually is. Very basic hotel. It does the job. we were out all day and only in the hotel to sleep. Rooms were clean. The hotel were renovating on the last day of our trip. This was not ideal and very noisy!! I would expect them to wait...

We had 2 rooms for 7 nights. The windows in both rooms almost couldn't be opened, the bathrooms had no windows, we often didn't have hot water and to top it all the hotel has a really really really (!!) small luggage room so we couldn't leave our luggage there. The guy in the reception "kindly" offered us to put...

Friends recommended that we stay at Hotel France during our visit to Amsterdam. This no-frills quaint hotel in the Central District and within easy walking distance from the Central Station turned out to satisfy all our needs. Nothing fancy but very clean and everything you need. Breakfast at the adjoining pub/restaurant,included in the fee, was ample. The staff was exceptionally...

I went in this hotel with two friends in march, nice position near the central station. The budget room, downstairs, was really dirty but comfortable, the toilet doesn't work well and finally I had a cold shower cause they hadn't hot water. I'm sure that I won't come again in this place.

For travelers on a budget you cannot beat this hotel. We needed a triple room which is not all that easy to find in Europe. It is within easy walking distance of Central Station and thus also most of the action of the city center. Room was clean, linens were nice, water pressure was good and staff was helpful and...

I loved staying here. I wasn't expecting much for the price, but it turned out to be very comfortable, clean, and very well-positioned. Breakfast (which is served at the bar next door) was delicious and plentiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful (which I found throughout Amsterdam). Only complaint was that hot water ran out pretty early in the...

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.
