Just got back from a 3 night stay in the greenhouse effects uptown apartment and i have to say it was brilliant, the apartment was perfect for the 5 of us and there was a extra space for another (although that does mean 2 people sleeping in the living area front room bit) The apartment was clean and well placed...

When I went to check in I was told I had booked for the wrong day and sorry they were full! After showing my confirmation and proving the mistake was theirs and not mine the manager had to come and sort out my reservation. I booked a themed apartment as I presumed this was an upgrade on a standard room,... More

Myself and my boyfriend recently stayed at the Greenhouse Effect during our stay in Amsterdam. We arrived on Good Friday at about 10am and tried to check in, the room wasn't ready which we thought would have been the case. They kindly let us store our suitcase there though until the 2pm check-in. We sampled a few of the local... More

Me and a couple of mates stayed here a few weeks back. It had scaffolding up outside the hotel front so it looked pretty ropey but other the place is good. We stayed in the Fluo room which was clean, tidy and had a nice shower room. The flourescent lights shown on the website were all missing so the fluo... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my significant other during winter and I DID NOT ENJOY the experience. Firstly, when we arrived they had not made up our room yet and the strange dreadlocked menacing girl proceeded to fob us off with the idea that we sit down and have a few smokes instead, at our expense of course. Now... More

me and a buddy stayed in the Turkish Delight. The room was so cute, the colors were great! The room was small but it did they job just fine. The bed was cozy. The room was surprisingly quiet, probably cause it doesn't face the street, but faces other buildings. The breakfast was good, just as i had imagined the hostel... More

Our first night we were upgraded from a double room to a triple ensuite. The room was very nice and was Mary Jane themed. The hostel is in the party section of the red light district. The room was very clean and had a stocked fridge, TV, and it fronted the street. The noise at night was very loud, especially... More

4 of us stayed at the City Oasis apartment for 3 nights. the apartment is spacious and basic but comfortable. the apartment is on the top floor and 3 flights of stairs later its totally worth the climb (and it is a climb! those amsterdam architects basically built tall houses with ladders up the middle!) the bedrooms are accessed via...

Ive stayed at the Greenhouse Effect several times and always head back there when going to the 'Dam. Yes the price reflects that the rooms are distinctive - crazy decor to wake the most jaded soul! The main hotel has the perfect location on Warmoestraat, the oldest street in the city. All the attractions are a simply tram or cycle... 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.
