Our room was on the ground floor ( room for 6) it was big and very comfortable. I was happy i didn't need to climb any stairs since it looked a bit narrow. Location of the hotel was amazing, in the center of red light district. People were very nice to us. Breakfast was okay. Wifi connection was really good.

The location of the hotel is very good, right in the centre of the red light district. However, the staff at reception are very rude and unhelpful, when we asked about a safety deposit box the man simply laughed at us. The room was very basic inside but clean. However, it could be very noisy at times. The hotel has... More

First of all we got this hotel at a very cheap price, so I was expecting it to be a substandard hotel. I didn't mind this as location was brilliant!!! When we arrived at the hotel (could be mistaken for a hostel) I was proved right...... Good location very very very very very very very very very poor cleanliness,decor but... More

Bang in the middle of the red light district which is good and to be fair its decent value for money. Big downside hence the low rating is the staff are extremely rude. The one guy was more interested in playing online poker than helping guests and they are rude and snappy even hostile when you get buzzed in after... More

Stayed here thinking it would be ok because it's Amsterdam and most accomodation here is a bit dodgy.. This place was budget to the extreme. There was no TV, fridge, iron, tea or coffee.. Pretty much an old worn out bed with stained quilts and the walls were all drawn all over and stained. The carpets I was scared to... More

If you're looking for a good quality plush hotel in Amsterdam you're going to have to pay! Hotel 83 is very basic, in fact it's more like a hostel than a hotel. However, it's in a very central position in the red light district and it's clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. A nice breakfast buffet is available as... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood 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.
