This budget hotel is conveniently located with a few mintues walk of the Central Station but also the red light district! The rooms are clean and the wet room/bathroom offers a great shower! The staff are also helpful. The free WeFi is also good. The down side is that the bed was remarkably hard and the pillows very flat! There... More

+ location, service, tidiness, breakfast, free WiFi, newly renovated bathroom, good quality-price ratio - a broken headboard, no trashcan in the room (one in a bathroom though), no air conditioning (windows can be opened)

I booked for a small single room for 4 nights. I was there on a business trip. It was right in the middle of everything. Location is the best part of this hotel. But the stairs are incredibly steep. I noted this earlier from previous reviewers and asked for a room in lower level while making my booking. The reception... More

Great little hotel in the heart of the Red Light District, very busy street, but I loved it as it was close to everything !It's a one star hotel, staff was very friendly and helpful. Worth the money!!

Bad points : Its typical budget Amsterdam hotel .. a bit worn-out (but fine)... crazy steep stairs up to the rooms (only suitable for young people),... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights on our first trip to Amsterdam a few weeks ago. We booked through booking.com, it was great value compared to most other hotels in the vicinity (Amsterdam to us seemed quite pricy for accommodation). It was easy to find, about a 10 minute walk from the central station and in the... More

I've stayed at this hotel every time I've been in Amsterdam and never had a bad experience that I can recall. The location is fantastic, you couldn't be more central, the hotel is right on the Red Light District. Rooms are cleaned, towels changed etc...daily. Rooms are very clean and safe to leave your belongings in whilst your exploring the... More

Nice central location. Clean rooms. Towels changed everyday. You can have your room cleaned everyday if you want. Shared toilets and shower but only between two rooms so thats alright. Very basic rooms. Breakfast food was alright. Scrambled and boiled eggs, mini frankfurters, bread, jams, butter, cold meats, cheese, orange juice, coffee, tea. Everyday.

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.
