This hotel was truly a great experience for the most part. Our flight landed at 7am and the hotel had our room ready by 10;30 which we were totally not expecting. This was a great first start to our first day as we were able to nap for a few hours and still get in a full day of exploring...

The Grand is great: a historical building, with a lot of character, central location, outstanding service and an excellent restaurant - can you ask for more? Well...yes, if you are a very demanding customer. If there is something that didn't entirely match my expectations, it was the room. On the positive side: small but well appointed and cosy, very comfortable...

This is the place to stay if you want to visit Amsterdam's crazy days and at the end of the day, have the deserved rest. Charming hotel, which defines very well the Sofitel standard and the legendary place, where the hotel was built. Very good location. Very sympathetic and friendly staff.

Great Hotel and location to walk around Amsterdam. The best service we had on our Europe vacation which were all 5 star hotels. The breakfast buffet was also one of the best along with the "great service". The bedding, towels and bathroom robes were also 5 star level, not like the other so called 5 star hotels we stayed at....

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.

“Get a suite, if your budget will allow it. Upper floor, overlooking the canal is great.”

“You get some street noise on the canal side, but it's minimal and I enjoyed it. Can't go wrong (canal vs non-canal).”

“Canal rooms at the back of the hotel are probably better in terms of noise and privacy”

“We upgraded to a room facing the canal (but at the back of the hotel) - the road in front of the hotel is probably going to be too noise.”
