The location and view were amazing to be honest, everything else was terrible, we call the first day to get am extra key and some missing stuff for the room, like extra towels, water boiler, etc.. The guy didn't answer the phone at first and after contacting booking.com he answered and said he will come on the next day, which... More

Stayed here for 4 nights but to be honest should have left after the first one. If you are with a groups of friends on a stag or hen party then it is probably ok but anyone else stay away. It stank of hash although advertises no smoking, it was very dirty, the towels they supplied smelt, we wanted to... More

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

I stayed here in January and it has a few good things and a few bad things to say about this place. At first we thought we had the wrong place as the apartments main door is located down a strange side street next to a what seems to be popular coffee shop. As I called the number we had... 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. The location is great, right across from the canal tours, grasshopper is a 2 minute walk, and really easy to navigate the city from here. We were met by Michél who was really friendly and informative, thanks Michél! Who explained the in's and out's to us. Be... More

Where do i begin.... Location: - Right near sex museum and 3 mins away from central station. Right outside the canal cruise. Street was very in very dark and narrow. You would not know the apartment was there, its just a door on a back street. Arrival: - We arrived at 15:00 rang the buzzer for concierge and no answer.... More

I booked this apartment for my son and four friends. They were a mixed party of 19/20 year olds who earn very little. My son is an apprentice earning £95 week and he saved up hard to go on this break. Once they had checked in he rang me quite upset because the greeter had told him that something had... 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.
