Two of us went to Amsterdam(our third time in the capital), the last time we were really dissapointed with our hostel ( Irish bar, above), very dirty and miserable. What a difference at the Greenhouse effect! I was so impressed the minute we opened the door from the street(which is a card entry system), the steep stairs (as always) and... More

Location was superb, but I found the apartment to be a bit run down and dirty. The floor behind beds had not been swept in a long time, and there is built up grime in corners etc. There are heaps of mice that spend the whole night running through the walls - one even tried to get onto my bed!!...

I've been to Amsterdam many times and have stayed in all manner of places. If you are in a group and on a budget or want something quirky then I would highly recommend this place. We stayed in two quad-apartments and they were great fun. Centrally located, albeit on the edge of the red-light district, everywhere was easily accessible -... More

Nestled among the many hotels, restaurants, and coffeeshops of Warmoestraat is The Greenhouse Effect Hotel, Bar, and Coffeeshop. The location is superb, close to the Central Station, the Dam, and Nieuendijk, as well as the Oude Kirk and the Red Light District. The rooms, as most in Amsterdam, tend to be small, but they are comfortable. Most are themed, offering... More

We stayed in the Redman room for three nights in June and really enjoyed the stay. We had to share shower and toilet but were impressed by the cleanliness and weren't bothered at all with this arrangement. We never really used the bar or Coffee shop as there are just to many places to try. The room was very small... More

The location , just 400 metres, walk from Centraal station ,is perfect for anyone wanting to be in the Dark Heart of Amsterdam. You check in with Paul the barman in the bar, who is great , efficient and full of tips, no matter how busy the bar is --and it always is! Rooms , clean , tidy , secure... 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.
