Me and my friends stayed for here for four days..and the Mice ruined it for us. The room is filthy and I do not recommend paying so much when you have to drag your bags up 8 flight of stairs. Plus, there s no breakfast included..well that is the least of your problems. I wish I read the reviews before... More

Well, where to start in describing this apartment. Overall it's poorly equipped and hard to get to - 87 stairs and walkways. We saw mice running freely in the lounge area! Pluses- it's near the station and there's hot running water... Negatives- it has mice, very basic facilities, little kitchen equipment and lots and lots of steep stairs. We weren't... More

It's difficult to explain just how bad this apartment was - we booked it for 3 nights for around €700 - and the fact we left at 7am the morning after arrival explains all you need to know. Firstly the minor things - previous guests rubbish was found in most drawers and cupboards, towels were dirty with black marks all... More

apartments were great, very spacious, great location, the guy who met us with the key was helpful if needed and just let us get on with our trip which was good, 5 min walk from central station, all in all I recommend.

If you don't like climbing stairs this is not the apartment for you.

I booked this apartment for my son and four friends. They were a mixed party of 19/20 year olds who earn very little.

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.
