This specific trip to Amsterdam was very special to me because this is the city where my SO proposed to me! He booked this beautiful place for us and it's simply filled with so much history and culture. The staff went out of their way to make our experience brilliant by throwing in chocolate strawberries and champagne. It definitely is... More

Location: Excellent - a c.10-15 minute walk from Centraal Station, either via the Damrak and Dam Square, or by skirting through the Red Light District. If you have lots of luggage - you'll need a cab, as the cobbled streets make it a little hard to control your cases. A cab is about €10. We arrived around midday for our... More

Probably the best hotel in Amsterdam! We had over 30 friends in Amsterdam staying at different hotels, and when they visited us at the Sofitel, everyone was just woved by the hotel. Situated on the canal a few steps away from all of the tourist chaos we got a room facing the canal. The rooms were generously spacious and the... More

Admitting that you must be a bit spoiled to be able to stay in hotels of this category. But what a great service, right in the centre of the city. Lucky enough our program included bike-taxi and transportation by boat over the Canals so traffic and parking were not an issue. Staff is very friendly and profesional, rooms are excellent.... More

We spent 4 nights at this amazing hotel arriving on 26th July. It is seeped in history having once been the Town Hall. An historic tour of the hotel is fascinating.

You will be pampered in this beautiful hotel with high levels of personal attention. Their concierge staff is top notch with special gratitude to Philip Gerzon. This is a historical site that has been wonderfully preserved. If you have time do the hotel tour.

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.
