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.
Eat, see, and stay in Red Light District (De Wallen)
Interesting insight into Amsterdam history with amazing surprise on the top floors which are a bit of a climb. There are lots of stairs because you have to go way downstairs to begin and then up and then down again to return to obligatory Audioguides which we don't like using!
"Visit here to Understand the history of Amsterdamers"

Religion is a part and parcel of life. This church is an example of religion tolerance in this intolerant world.
They provide a deep explanation into the history of Amsterdam and Netherlands and guided speaker available in different languages.
I had never been to a Ripley's museum before visiting this one in Amsterdam. If you have a couple of hours to kill I highly recommend coming here. We visited first thing in the morning and were the only ones in the building. The museum is spread over 5 or so floors and they have on show some interesting things,...
Martine and Olav are incredible hosts and chefs. Their beautiful apartment looks out on a gorgeous canal on the edge of the Red Light District. The traditional Dutch dinner they served was superb and our hosts explained the history and preparation of each course.Olav loves to talk music and Martine is a joy to talk with. This was a perfect...

We tried to find The Tailor on our 2nd day but seem to be walking round in circles. We went pass the Grand Hotel the next day and asked the concierge who said it was inside the hotel.
So glad we asked as we had some of the best cocktails I have ever had and spent a few lovely hours...

"Omelets done right"
reviewed 3 days ago by JPankratz
No joke. Better than mine, better than any omelet I’ve had for many times the price. Excellent homemade brown bread, lightly dressed side greens, and coffee as well. Extensive menu with a myriad combinations. Our omelets were simultaneously rich, light, delicate, flavorful, filling, comforting. I opted for cheese and ham, having never previously regretted ordering things with cheese and ham...
Super central but situated on a quiet canal with all the sights within comfortable walking distance. Unusually quirky, but in a good way (check out the room photos) ! Only met one member of staff ("Berry") but welcoming, friendly and informative. No hesitation in recommending and would definitely stay here again.
We spent one night in this hotel with my girlfriend and our friends. The hotel is located in the Red light district just 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam centraal . The hotel is situated close to a big number of restaurants and pubs, but it is not too noisy. The hotel is owned by a friendly married couple. On the...
The hotel location is really on the heart of the city , walkable with really nice location too . Most attractions near by.
All toilet shampoo ...ext from Hermes
The room was Junior Suite ( Butler service) king bed room number was 252 facing nice view of the canal .

We arrived at 10pm last on the Thursday evening to be greeted by an extremely friendly doorman, he helped us all through our stay booking cycle taxis for several trips. The lady on reception who also showed us our room was very informative and friendly, as we were celebrating a special occasion the staff made us feel especially welcome. The...
We stayed at Hotel Twenty Seven for 5 days in October of 2018, and although we generally don’t write reviews (there are plenty out there and our views generally coincide with what others have experienced), our stay here was so exceptional that we feel compelled to write a review. We had originally booked our stay at a different hotel in...
