Often when hotels boast a great location thet are a little economical with the truth, - this cannot be said about The Rho. The front door can't be more than a 1 min walk off Dam Square. The accomodation is fairly basic but most importantly is clean and tidy. My room was quite small but adequate, but was equipped with... More

Just off Dam square - so very handy for bars and restaurants and tram stop, about a half hour walk from central station. You couldn't hear any noise from traffic or from passers by as is on a quiet street. Nice lobby but quite basic rooms. TV had very bad reception and there is no airconditioning just a table fan....

I have stayed at 6 different tourist class (2-3 star) hotels in Amsterdam Centrum between 2001 to 2003. I stayed at Rho Hotel in my last 3 visits. I found this hotel offers the best value for the price and location. This is the hotel if you want to be near Dam Square at a reasonable price . The rooms... More

I stayed here last weekend and thought it was great for a basic hotel. The location was what sold it to us and it didn't let us down - slap bang opposite the big dept store on dam square. The breakfast was good - although when it got busy it was quite hectic as not a lot of room at... More

We arrived at the Rho Hotel & were delighted with how close it was to Dam Square. The Hotel itself however is very basic & our room was really dark.There was no mini bar as advertised and the TV was useless. It was very clean though which is the main thing. There is nothing special about this Hotel at all... More

Excellent location (just off the Dam Square), friendly and helpfull staff, clean and not-too-tiny-by-amsterdam-standard's rooms, clean and spacious bathrooms, excellent breakfast (I loved the smoked salmon) and perfectly reasonable prices.what more do you need?...The only complaint I have is about the paper-thin walls.You could hear a fly sneeze on the next room. But if you enjoy the city the right... More

This converted theatre is now a basic economy class hotel. Staff is helpful and rooms are small but clean and safe. One thing that disturbed me was the noice level. Walls are thin and you can hear if your neighbor is snoring. On the plus side, it's a great location just next to the Dam. Also, if you fancy a... More

We have stayed here for three times now. It is a fine hotel if you are not expecting luxory. Its a old building (formally a theatre i think) and maybe the rooms need a freshen up. They are fine, most are roomy, tv etc. Bathrooms are on the large side in most rooms. Staff are young people and very nice... More

This was our second visit to Amsterdam and our second stay at the Rho hotel. My girlfriend and I were very happy with the room and the hot buffet breakfast that was delicious on both occasions. The location is excellent, right on Dam square, next to the shops and the vibrant nightlife. We will be going to Amsterdam again soon... 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.
