The rooms are very small but just what you need for two people, nothing luxurious. We had to ask for extra towels because for some reason we only had one hair towel and nothing else between two of us. The stair cases are tiny, typical Dutch stair cases so I'm unsure how you would have got up them with a... More

这是一个由开甜品店的夫妇所附带开设的“旅店”,这家所谓“旅店”只有三个房间,你可以试订两个月以后的房间,看看可以预订的房间总数,即可知道只有三间。一楼是非常嘈杂的甜品店,由于在闹市区,生意非常兴隆,晚上营业至半夜;加上甜品店外面即是游船码头,许多游客从此码头上下游船,非常嘈杂;因此楼上的住客几乎整夜难以入睡。再说这三间房间,只有一间是比较正常的双人间,但据店主说每晚收费250欧,供四人住,如果真如店主所言,可想是非常拥挤的。另一间的面积只有前一间的一半左右,且呈三角形,不是通常房间的长方形或正方形,所谓TWIN床或DOUBLE床也只是两张沙发,每张约50厘米宽,并且沙发太软,根本没办法睡,如果是一个人,尚可将就对付一晚,但如果是来了两个人或者一家三口,就很悲惨了,必须有一、两个人坐上一个通宵而无法睡,估计店主穷得连正常的床都买不起,只好用两张沙发来欺骗住客了。第三个房间是在阁楼上并排摆着四张床,供四人住,收费亦是250欧元左右,房间倒是比较宽敞,但毕竟是阁楼,矮个子可以,高个子可能就得不停地低头弯腰了。此外,进入房间必须经过一楼,登记入住或退房也在一楼,从一楼到二楼或阁楼的房间,必须经过唯一的一道约五十到六十厘米宽的木楼梯,如果行李箱把手突然断裂,可能就要砸死跟有后面的人或者在一楼吃甜品的人了。由于楼梯太过狭小太过陡峭,许多女住客不得不额外付费请甜品店店员帮搬。甜品店除了店主夫妇以外,只见到两个女店员,她们一边卖甜品,一边还得帮店主接待不明所以的国际旅客,因此对旅客的态度非常恶劣,经常是I DON'T KNOW, I HAVE NO WAY, I CAN DO NOTHING ABOUT IT,PLEASE QUICKLY.由于只有三间房,并且在订房网站上放的照片非常漂亮,是非常浪漫的粉红色的双人床,非常具有欺骗性,因此店主不担心房间订不出去,只要住客的信用卡信息一收,就万事大吉了。由于总共只有三间房,由店主分配,因此不可能让顾客自己选房间。不满意?打官司去。 THREE ARE ONLY THREE ROOMS IN THE SWEETS RESIDENCE.TWO ARE IN THE SECOND FLOOR,ONE IS IN THE ATTIC.THERE IS A VERY LONG AND NARROW LADDER THROUGH TO THE ROOMS.

This place was fantastic! I really wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. It is very small, your room only having a bed (extremely comfortable though) and a little wall closet, but the atmosphere is extremely cozy and beautiful. My room looked out onto one of the canals and had open windows on both sides that you could sit on... More

When arriving at check-in time, Residence Sweets' front door was shut and locked, with a number to call, or with advice to speak to the tobacco shop owner across the street. The shop owner did not know what to do, and the phone number rang off to voicemail. After wandering around Amsterdam for a few hours and coming back, the... More

Stayed there with a friend in March 2014. Fantastic hotel, family owned, It was in the perfect location, close to everything and lots of food places open nearby till late. You have to walk through the sweet store/cafe to get to your room which is a nice little touch, the decor is lovely too. Although the stairs are steep and... More

In a wonderful location, an expensive residence with a dreadful management, climbing and really dangerous steps to reach the rooms,charge of 5,50% for service (just one towel each and nothing more), breakfast not included at 9,50 € and other discomfort, staff missing.

Dont stay here! This place and the people working there are disgusting and unfriendly and most of all not to be trusted. The rooms are small and filthy (bed full of stains!!) and there was even money stolen from my room. Especially the owner is a very frustrated, sad, extremely bad tempered man. I have never experienced such rude behaviour.... More

You have great location, you are close to everything Dam Square and just about a 10 min walk from any place in the city canter. Kinda funny, you have to walk through the candy store to get in to your room. Its clean and quite. Not overly mind blowing, however overall no complaints.

Staff polite and friendly. Coffee in our room!!! Great location near Dam square and central station. Our room was large and clean. Can walk almost everywhere from here, right on the canal and lots of restaurants in walking distance. It was perfect.

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.
