Arrived on the last night of Sail Amsterdam, so things were really hopping. David's directions from the Central Station were perfect. Rooms are a very nice size. Great location for exploring the city. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. If/when I return to Amsterdam, this is my first choice!

We stayed here for four nights in late July. We stayed in the front room and had a great view of the canal. The best aspect of this B&B was our experience dealing directly with the owner and host, David. He promptly responded to inquiries via email and was always available to answer questions. The room itself was very clean... More

Velvet Amsterdam is centrally located. The instructions given by David was easy to follow. We were thankful that we could check in at 10:00 am. As other reviewers have stated, this place is just outstanding. It is centrally located in the red light district. The stairs are indeed steep but David was there to help with bags. As other reviewers... More

This B & B is a short walk from the train station. We stayed in the front room with the water view. Both the room and the view are beautiful. This room overlooks and area with outside seating from nearby restaurants. I was afraid it would be noisy however noise was not a problem. The windows and curtains blocked any... More

We were so thankful that we came across Velvet Amsterdam for our stay. First, the location could not have been better. It's just a short five minute walk to Central Station (which is connected to the airport -- 15 minutes) and by tram line to other areas of town (for museums, etc.). We took a one day trip to Brugge... More

Host was there when we arrived and was very helpful. The host (david) lives upstairs and is there if you need anything, but is not hanging around - there are two rooms, we had... More

We decided on an extended, five day, stay in Amsterdam before our Viking River Cruie departed for Basel. Having never been to the city before, we relied on the reviews posted on this site to help select our accommodation in Amsterdam. To our good fortune, we chose Velvet Amsterdam based on the experiences noted on TripAdvisor. What a wonderful location... More

Amazing location. Perfect for visiting the red lights and all they have to offer along with the popular city centre coffee shops and head shops. But, more importantly, walk in the right direction and you can virtually miss all that. Find yourself the gorgeous canal and bar culture and sample the world of cuisine on offer. Amsterdam has a new... 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.
