Thanks Mike Room was adequate and nice view of the canal. The other day time staff should take a leaf out of Mike's... More

Really don't see what the problem is with this hotel, think some reviewers need to lower their expectations and take into account location and price of this place. We booked the crown after having drank here on our previous annual visits to Amsterdam, couldn't believe how cheap the room rate was, considering this is right in the middle of the... More

I was located on the 3rd floor, Room was very small but suited my needs perfectly. Shared bathroom was quite worn looking but hot water aplenty, so no issues there. The location is right in the middle of the district and easy to get to bars, clubs and transport. Located 550 meters (7 minute walk) from the AH Stationsplein, it... More

Absolute shed of a hotel ...upon arrival we noticed that the window in our room WAS SMASHED and there was shards of glass which could have easily ruined someones holiday! ...it obviously wasn't much of a concern to the staff as nobody came to even inspect the damage, and we were then presented with 2 options: Option 1: was to...

Location is great, only 3 minutes walk from Centraal station and opposite the old church. Staff were friendly and the room was clean. We staid in the 'romantic room' right at the top of the hotel, beware the staircase is treacherous to say the least I hit my head many a times. Shared shower and bathroom were clean

I have stayed at many budget hotels throughout Europe and am aware that generally "you get what you pay for" . I am realistic in my expectations and do not normally post negative reviews. That being said, I feel compelled to warn those thinking of staying at The Crown to consider other options. The location is very good (although more... More

I never see an hotel like that. The bedrooms was so dirty (my bed was break), bathrooms are outside of the rooms. We are 6 in a room of 15-20m2.. Furthermore, the different receptionnist are really not nice. I will never come back in this horrible place !

Cheap hotel for 5 lads. No pool table but had dart board. Room was big enough for 5 of us but there was no shower curtain to take a shower and once you are in the room you are in as there was no handle to get back out of it. Bit of a fire risk. Other all not bad... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, was exactly as expected. Staff were pleasant, got on with them. Did the job we wanted it to and we were hardly there! Top location & would stay there again! Extra cheap also!!

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.
