We are staying at this hotel for two nights prior to a cruise. We found the staff to be very accommodating and helpful. Great location and Bridges restaurant is very good. We didn't eat at the expensive one.

Sad to say, our "grand" expectations were not met by Sofitel Legend the Grand. We were very disappointed with the receptionist (Mandy) who checked us in. We could have ignored some minor slipups like her fake frozen smile and cold attitude.  But what ultimately made us decide to write a comment in Trip Advisor was when she stated that my... More

The historic building originally built as a monastery is impressive from outside and from inside. The building has a couple of courtyards an outer one and an inner one. The building although...

This hotel is in a great location, where you can walk everywhere. The rooms are very nice but a little bit too dark. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfast was great , served in a nice area full of light.

Nice hotel close to the Dam and in the middle of old Amsterdam, made more interesting by the 'coffee shops' next door. This place oozes swank. We had quality service and quality rooms even though we were at the lower end of the price range, which is still pretty high! They go out of their way to make you feel... More

We stayed here three nights during a heat wave in Amsterdam. The location is second-to-none - you can walk to everything that matters from here. The staff were great, getting us a different room when the original one seemed too low for us, for example. The concierges also helped us find whatever we wanted, restaurants, museums, boat rides, and so... More

The hotel is centrally located, friendly staff but things can go wrong too! The day we have checked in a room with canal view, and we immediately noticed an overwhelming smell of sewage.

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.
