Grand is the only adjective to describe our stay in this five star hotel. From the moment we arrived this property did not disappoint, actually it was "grand" in every respect. We stayed here in 2015, and knew we would stay at no other hotel. The room was a junior suite, and was very large and well appointed. Bathroom facilities...

I would strongly recommend to stay at this hotel as it has everything one can expect in a luxury hotel. The service is really amazing and rooms are nice, spotlessly clean and cosy. While boasting of a great location, which is a nice 5 minute walk from Dam square, Sofitel has everything a tourist wants.

I have stayed at all the 5 star hotels in Amsterdam and this is by far the best one. The service is amazing - everyone who helped us during our stay was nice and kind and helpful. The food is absolutely delicious. The room was gorgeous with an amazing bathroom, bed, blackout curtains, plenty of space.

If you're a light sleeper and need total silence, this is the place for you. No street noises whatsoever; elevators are enclosed behind glass doors so no sound, however slight, can disturb your night's rest. Super-comfortable beds; heavy blackout drapes. Fresh, trendy decor, always a little sweet waiting in the lobby when you return at the end of the day....

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.
