The hotel sits on the edge of the red light district and next very close to many bars and "coffee shops" where people sit outside and smoke marijuana. The air is thick with marijuana smoke which is ok if you like it but of you don't...bad luck you will feel sick. I am sorry to say that some of the... More

Stayed here with family and extended family in July. What a wonderful hotel with fantastic attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble and their attention to detail was impeccable. We only ate breakfast in the hotel but it was absolutely wonderful, we felt as part of the family and not just guests! Loved that it was so central to the... More

I have recently spent 4 nights in this glorious hotel and I cannot rate it highly enough.From the private cobblestone drive in courtyard entrance to the Hotel, to the beautiful building steeped in the history of the city, this Hotel would have to be one of my all time favourites. I stayed in a Suite which was beautifully appointed with... More

Great restaurant with both great taste and very unique presentation. The presentation of a variety of clams in a fan of coral was a feast for the eyes and taste buds. Staff was very helpful in planning our short stay. Loved the TV over the bathtub.

My husband booked this hotel many months ago as a surprise treat for the end of our European holiday. He did not tell me how "grand" it would be and the minimalist luggage I packed for the hotel (the bulk of the luggage being left in a locker at Schipol Airport) was not really appropriate. However we managed to hold... More

Grandeur and location summarize quite well this hotel. It is an iconic building, former town hall, which has been elegantly remodeled, but with keeping this particular atmosphere and the rooms provide all comfort, modernity and amenities you could expect. Service is top and experience is unique. It is ideally located within the older part of the city. One area of... More

The Grand is a very nice property, well located in Amsterdan. If I had paid half the price they charge, I would give 5 to this hotel, but for the price they ask, I was expecting much more. First of all, staff is polite and efficient, but not nice and friendly at all! The room is small and the bathroom... More

The Grand !.. the name says a lot, as it certainly is a "grand old lady" of a building. The minute you drive into the courtyard and you hand over your car to the valet, everything is stylish and relaxed, and I can understand why this is one of THE places to go when staying in Amsterdam. The Lobby, the... 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.
