Stayed for 2 nights over the weekend. Location ideal, bars and food places Located all round. Max 5 minutes walk from the train station. Rooms are quite modern and recently decorated. They are fairly small but that didn't bother us as it's only used for sleeping and a quick shower. Check out is 11am... but we slept in and didn't...

What a great spot to stay. Great staff, nice location, killer stairs but that is to be expected in AMS. Beautiful modern room and bathroom although the bathroom gets very wet from the shower! Comfy beds. Id happily stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Small brown bar with a good beer selection at the top of the RLD. Did not see what the rooms are like but there was a fair number of people checking in in the bar, so it looks as if it is pretty popular as a place to stay.

Myself and my friends booked a spontaneous trip to Amsterdam, booked this hotel the day before we arrived, great value for money. Rooms are clean and very modern. We had our own bathroom not shared so that was good. The location was the best thing, walking distance to everything as it's in the centre of Amsterdam. Only thing that let...

Only called here for a drink and found it a great pint, place has plenty character and a very unusual toilet. Place looked old and the barman could have smiled a bit, had some great beer on sale and prices were good.

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.

“If you can get in their secondary apartment block down the road opposite the tattoo parlour, it's slightly quieter during the night.”
