I booked the apartment located in the building next to the main hotel, with a view from the living/dining room over the canal to the huge pink elephant of Theatre Casa Rosso. The back room is surprisingly quiet and the bathroom and shower are very good. Since I was last here, the new owners have upgraded the rooms and turned... More

My review is only about the underground restaurant, I did not stay at the hotel therefore I can't comment on that. I was visiting the Red Light District during a Saturday day time with my best friend and we became hungry and were looking for a place to have a quick lunch. Loved the ambience and the food was delicious.... More

Right in the middle of the red lights district in typical Amsterdam building. Bar and reception in one. Not so big room and corridors. Shared bathroom. Clean towels and beddings. The breakfast is not something special but plenty of bread, butter, ham, cheese, eggs and juice. You can have coffee from the bartender but don't forget to give her your... More

It was early in the evening when we left our hotel, and crossed a bridge and entered De Wallen or De Walletjes; which is the largest and best known red-light district in Amsterdam and consists of a network of alleys containing approximately three hundred one-room cabins rented by prostitutes who offer their sexual services from behind a window or glass...

I stayed here recently and was pleased with the location as everything was in a short walking distance. Lively place to stay and the staff were great, putting big screen on for us to watch football. Nice continental breakfast in the morning. A great place to stay for the price paid

My partner and I stayed there in early September for 4 nights. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Keep in mind that almost all the staircases in older buildings in Amsterdam are quite narrow and steep.The hallway has a... More
