My wife and I spent Easter in Amsterdam, staying at this apartment, this is second time we've stayed here. Booked it via [--] which worked well, they provided real time booking info so the confirmation arrived quickly. Picked up the keys from the Green House Effect coffeeshop/bar/hotel on Warmeosstraat and walked over to Nieuwmarket Square where the apartment is located.... More

Greenhouse Effect (Market Suite Apartment) Myself and 3 friends stayed at this apartment from 09/03/07 to 12/03/07 and have to say it is without doubt the best place I have ever stayed in Amsterdam and I have been in excess of 15 times!!!

My best friend and I ventured to Amsterdam last summer when we were both 18, for four days and nights. We had booked the Turkish Delight room in the Greenhouse Effect hotel. We got checked in immediately by the ultra-friendly American barman. Now, the stairs on the way up to the room were a trial they were mind boggelingly steep... More

The hotel is right in the centre of Amsterdam, also near the train station. Their rooms are themed. Different but just what you want for a visit to Amsterdam. The hotel is above a the bar, and a coffee shop. Our room windows opened up onto the street, so we could watch the people passby and take it all in... More

Every room is themed and we stayed in the Turkish Delight room. As a couple two single beds squashed together can be a problem because as the night goes on one of you ends up in between the beds a few inches off the floor. However, I didn't mind this too much as being on the floor was preferable to... More

Stayed in "Urban Chill" with husband and friends and loved it! Real friendly staff. Our flight was cancelled last minute so we didn't make the first night booked and they didn't charge is for that night. Breakfast was good. Great that it was served until noon. The apartment was clean and spacey with window overlooking the street, great for people... More

Greenhouse Effect's Uptown apartment was a great place to stay. Great view of Damrak from the living room. Place was clean enough but could have used some housekeeping for our 6 day stay. Floors got a little gritty. Fresh towels were provided daily outside our door since our do not disturb sign was up most of the time. I would... More

We stayed in the Turkish Delight Room for a week in September. Considering we were in Europe the room was a decent size for two people, and the ensuite bathroom was acceptable/average. The staff was nice in the bar and just bareable in the coffeehouse. The hotel was in a great location; however, a little sketchy for two girls walking... 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.
