Stayed for 4 nights (end of June). traveled alone so central location was very important for me. The hotel is located within 5-10 minutes walk from every attraction (central station, Dam, Anne Frank's house, museums). The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room is very simple and small but has everything you need and was cleaned every day. Breakfast... More

AWFUL EXPERIENCE!!! GOT STOLEN HERE We got all our bags open and several items stolen including money inside the bags. When we asked for the manager, Timo Kauppi, all he had to say was "he was sorry".... not a professional attitude after this had happened. The door was not forced which made us wonder that it was someone from the... More

The reason for this is that it is the guest’s own responsibility to make certain they have closed and locked their own room door and... More

I was only in Amsterdam overnight, as I had a long layover on the way home from a business trip. I'd never been there before, so I was very excited. As others have said, the hotel is in a very narrow building, and my room was really tiny. That's Dutch architecture though, and I liked having the opportunity to experience... More

Stayed in here twice now, comfiest hotel beds I've ever slept in. In a really great central location just off the square surrounded by lots of nice restaurants and fast food take outs. The staff are also really friendly and helpful. Will be back.

Just came back from a 4 day visit to Amsterdam with my friend and we couldn't have chosen a nicer hotel. The hotel was in the perfect location as it was within walking distance to all the tourist attractions. There were plenty of restaurants and bars right on the door step. The room was basic but you pay for what... More

Decent enough right by dam monument. A slightly fiddly showerexperience and our bathroom smelt very musty . Consider that e it s in an older building in the center so slightly crooked very steep stairs. Very soft beds. Fine for one or two nights.breakfast til 10 in the weekend and thin walls .

Stayed here during a conference at Tobacco Theater which is only 5 minutes away on foot. Actually, most downtown things are only 5-10 minutes away on foot... Dam Square is 1 minute away, Centraal station 10 minutes. Lots of snack restaurants in the street of the hotel and the red light district just across the next canal led to a... 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.
