I switched hotels on my last night in Amsterdam. I was staying at a pricey 5-star hotel with a friend, but because he was leaving early, I saw no reason to pay nearly €200 to stay on my own. While we were walking around town I saw the French Hotel noticed that it looked clean and well kept and in...

This hotel was one of my best discoveries while researching Amsterdam, it is a 2 minute walk away from Central Station (which is a beautiful place) and is the main point for trams, trains and buses so you can travel almost everywhere. It is SO cheap for the location also. The hotel lobby is very impressive and the rooms are...

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.
