Just returned from staying in the city oasis apartment, Although the location was fantastic the apartment was far from this. The steep stairs did not bother me nor the general rundown condition of the apartment. But the following did: Filthy bathroom. especially the floor not seen a good mop in a long time. No oven in the kitchen. Mice eating... More

Stayed in the Delphi apartment and found it to be rather dirty, grotty and run down in all honesty. Staff were relatively ok, but this didnt last long. On our return home we were faced with false accusations made against us in an attempt to get money from us. I was later informed by my bank that an attempt to... More

I didnt like this place. The area it is in is awful if central. The rooms are OK but a little run down (we were in Fluo and Sailors Cabin), it was too pricey for what you got - not much more than a hostel, beds decent, bathrooms ok apart from broken shower doors but the rooms are just so... More

On arrival at the Greenhouse Effect, we had to push our way through a pretty crowded bar. Once we proceeded to check in we were told that we would have to pay more than what we had been promised, after much discussion with the barmaid/receptionist we paid what was originally agreed when we booked. We were given our key but... More

We stayed in the Tropical Dream room at the Greenhouse Effect and I cannot recommend it enough. Even if you don't have the extremely stressful travel experience that we had (a 23 hour delay due to a wicked snowstorm), entering the room will instantly zap any travel-related annoyances you might have carried with you from the airport to the city....

Me and 5 other girls stayed in the Market and City Oasis apartments for two nights over a weekend. I stayed in the City Oasis apartment which is for 4 people. The apartment is in a building about a 5 minute walk from the Hotel and Coffeeshop and 2 blocks from the Red Light District. The apartment was spacious and... More

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

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.
