Great staff at the front desk and particularly the restaurant where we had breakfast. The staff working in the restaurant went out of their way to make us feel special and to ensure that we had a very enjoyable breakfast. The breakfast buffet was very good with lots of choices. Very helpful concierge. Will definitely stay here again!

From our communications with the Concierges before we even arrived and all of their excellent advice, to the incredibly accommodating and friendly front desk, to the expert and gracious bartenders, to the attentive and impeccable butler, and exquisite restaurant staff, we thank you for a wonderful experience!

I booked a Junior Suite for 2 nights as an Xmas present to my wife. Booked a transfer with the hotel (Mercedes Maybach) which was extremely luxurious.

I stayed here first week of January, one night, business trip and this hotel did everything that you could expect, really friendly staff, good rooms, good shower, good wifi and a very good breakfast buffet. It felt a tiny bit on the expensive side, maybe currency fluctuations hitting home here, will I use the hotel again, yes definitely.

The hotel was a beautiful rehab of a historic building on the canal. The rooms were luxurious but a little small with all the furniture. The beds were not comfortable. There was a mattress topper on the bed, which made the bed too soft. The duvet was too warm and it was impossible to remove the inner comforter portion so...

What a night!! The best New Years Eve so far. Everything was perfectly organized, even the smallest details were well thought. The staff looked amazing, everyone was in custome and ready to party (with respect). I would def recommend this party if you want to have a sophisticated night out with friends.

We had high hopes of our New Year trip to a Gala Dinner and Masked Ball at this Hotel - but sadly, although the venue was not unpleasant, it didn't deliver what it promised on the tin.

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.
