The location is perfect, we were able to easily walk to the museums and other attractions, plenty to see and do in this neighbourhood. The service was superior, the room lovely and the breakfasts were top notch. Would absolutely return and would not hesitiate to recommend... More

This hotel is probably the best we have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable. We were told that our standard room might be a bit 'small' and were shocked to see how comfortable and rather large it was with high ceilings and massive windows. The breakfast was very well served. I must mention Mr.... More

This hotel is smack in the middle of the heart of the city and about a 10 minute walk from the central station. The canal flows all around so you can see it from some of the rooms. The rooms are large and spacious and the bathrooms has both a shower closet and a bathtub. The breakfast is good and... More

On arrival we were informed that we were "guests of the day" and not only had we been upgraded to a suite but had the benefit of our own butler - the helpful and delightful Luis. The suite was spacious with a wonderfully comfortable bed. Breakfast was a feast with hot dishes cooked to order plus a fabulous buffet with... More

The Grand benefits from an excellent, central location and is housed in a magnificent building. The courtyard and lobby are very nice and the service excellent: efficient and always with a smile. However, most of the rooms and suites (have stayed there several times) lack charm and are often hindered by a bad distribution of available space (in my last... More

We visited Amsterdam for four days in early August. Weather was amazing as was the hotel entrance and lobby. We had booking issues- even though we booked directly with the hotel- but eventually staff allowed us the discount we had booked. The decor was lovely and the art was really interesting- a great combo of modern art with traditional architecture.... More

Wonderful experience! We felt pampered from the moment we walked in the doors. The front desk staff was helpful and cheerful. The concierge gave us excellent suggestions on tours and restaurants. The restaurant, Bridges, has a fantastic breakfast buffet and a delicious dinner menu. All in all highly recommended!

My wife and I booked through Orbitz for what we thought was a good deal on The Grand's smallest room. We accidentally clicked one person and were informed when we got there that the room we booked only had one single bed and wouldn't accommodate two people. Nowhere on Orbitz or the Sofitel website does it state that any rooms... More

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.
