Extremely friendly and helpful staff, quirky spacious and clean rooms in a great location... brilliant little hotel. We tried to book again for a future visit but it was full so will be doing it well in advance next time.

We originally chose this hotel due to previous reviews and to experience staying in a typical Amsterdam house. The location is central, easy to find with the excellent directions we were sent. We were able to walk to all places we planned to visit. We were welcomed by Marcel who offered us any help we required and a map of... More

Stayed for 4 nights July 2015. Funky boutique hotel in a good position on the edge of the red light district. Breakfast to die for with Perry & Marcel's charismatic attention to detail. Such as tiny chalked notices attached with pegs describing the food. Items needing refrigeration, instead of being left on the side as is usually done, are found... More

Great location on the edge of the red light district and close to the tram and train station. Easy walk to the sites of Amsterdam or close enough for public transport. Very helpful and friendly staff. The attention to detail throught the Mansion was exceptional. Clean and cosy. Our room was large, with a cute view over one of the... More

Every detail seems carefully thought through, the breakfast buffet : minimal choice but with the best ingredients, in the sustainable trend. Excellent choice of DVD's. Shame about the nylon mix bed sheets and worse : the mattress too soft that it makes your back aching. Spent three nights in room 23, its superb stylishness does not entirely overcome the back...

The hotel building and locale say Amsterdam - small old historic building located in the red light district on a canal. Also, an easy walk to the train station and river cruise port. The interior does not disappoint - low lights, beamed ceilings, simple trendy decor - fun! Our room was on the second floor - up a narrow-windy staircase.... More

From the great water pressure, beautiful room decor, very comfortable bed and complimentary room drinks to the wonderful proprietors and their very accommodating natures, this was a fabulous hotel to stay at for my first trip to Amsterdam! It is close to The Central Station, on a canal and within walking distance to so much. Absolutely perfect!

We searched at least 20 hotels before choosing Mauro. The extremely high TA rating played a big part in the decision but it really was the positive reviews that sold us. We feel like it was a vacation experience and not just being an anonymous hotel guest. Our relationship began months before our arrival when we emailed Berry and Marcel... More

We had 4 nights at the beginning of July. Small hotel, well decorated, very nice breakfast, and pleasant team. The location is really good. About 5 minutes walk from the central station, and just near the city center. Still, The street is quite. Recommended!

You really feel that you have arrived in a place that has a peculiar ambience here! It is really small with only nine rooms. You cannot live in a more central place in Amsterdam - on a canal and it takes 3 minutes to walk to the central station. They have a great and personal breakfast and one evening we... 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.
