I am a perfectionist; this hotel exceeded even my hopes. The hotel opened in 1992, but some parts of the building date back to the 14th century. Frequently, extensive renovations and repurposing of an old building are not as grand as the initial plans; the Grand Amsterdam is an wonderful exception. We had a small suite. It was wonderfully comfortable...

Three of us stayed here the week before Christmas as we were in Amsterdam doing some Christmas Shopping. We have stayed in Amsterdam on numerous occasions before but never stayed in this hotel. But we are so glad we did. From the minute you drive into the courtyard you are made to feel special. I have never seen so many...

I couldn't possibly think of a better hotel in Amsterdam. Location is quite. Right near the RLD but far enough away it is quiet. Rooms are gorgeous. Staff is A+ Friendly, high class, etc. It simply doesn't get any better than here. Stop being cheap and spend the extra money, you will thank me later.

This is a lovely hotel with a great amenities within walking distance of most of the 'must-see' attractions in Amsterdam. It has a beautiful garden courtyard and a library where they serve a fabulous tea every afternoon. Breakfast is served in the hotel restaurant, Bridges, that features artwork by dutch artist Karel Appel. (Currently there is a worthwhile exhibit of...

We stayed at the Sofitel legend Grand for 6 nights. Our room (#314) overlooked the canal and was spacious and comfortable. There is a spa, indoor pool, gym, steam and sauna on the 1st floor. The concierge Niels was very helpful in assisting to plan arrange our excursions. We visited Amsterdam during the tulip festival and were pleased to see...

What a lovely hotel the Sofitel is. I brought my partner here to celebrate our anniversary. One of the predominant reasons for choosing this hotel was for the Spa facilities and quality that Sofitel has. We thoroughly loved the concierge staff who helped plan our excursions. However unfortunately our room was on the ground floor and was very noisy from...

This is a very good hotel, located at the center of Amsterdam near the Dam square. We arrived before noon, so our rooms were not ready yet. Staff were very helpful, but since it was a rather busy hour, it took some time to hand our luggage to the storage room and rush in the city. In a couple of...

We had a lovely room facing the canal - not too noisy at all because we were facing the canal at the back of the hotel. It's literally in the red light district, so the areas around the hotel is busy - but then you'd want some atmosphere in Amsterdam. The hotel is lovely and the breakfast AMAZING. There were...

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.

“Get a suite, if your budget will allow it. Upper floor, overlooking the canal is great.”

“You get some street noise on the canal side, but it's minimal and I enjoyed it. Can't go wrong (canal vs non-canal).”

“Canal rooms at the back of the hotel are probably better in terms of noise and privacy”
