There is difficult to find a better hotel than this. Excellent service in every aspect. History in everything you see around and inside - marriage chambers, mosaics. We had breakfast with finest fruits and wonderful pastry. Concierge and butler, barmen service is best ever i had in my travel life before. Unique atmosphere of history, tulip fragrance and excellent food....

It wouldn't be overstating it to say that this hotel is the best in Amsterdam! The location is fantastic, it's great value and the service is second to none. There wasn't anything that was too much trouble for the staff who were incredibly helpful and friendly. Breakfast in bed was amazing - again nothing too much trouble.

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.
