We stayed here for only one night in the Easter weekend with three children. The service was excellent. Staff really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were lovely decorated. The children were thrilled to find huge chocolate bunnies in their rooms. The restaurant was excellent. You need to book way ahead of time because... More

Great hotel, fabulous, courteous helpful staff and Guido the concierge among the best ever! Convenient central location, excellent restaurants. Beautiful building and rooms, immaculate, comfortable - Wow!! Only negative was that like most nicer European hotels, they expect you to eat a large and very expensive breakfast buffet. A la carte only available via room service. Great guest lounge on... More

The beds at The Grand are actually like sleeping on cloud. As a couple who sleep on a Tempurpedic in the US, this bed is ten times more comfortable. Incredible sleeping on this lovely feather bed with a feather duvet. The service is impeccable and I'm sure they would cheerfully scrape gum off the sole of my shoe had I... More

What more could you want? Seriously, the room was beautiful and the bathroom was fantastic. Loved wathcing the nesw soaking in the tub on a flat screen in the wall! The concierge, Duncan Groot, the manager Zsa Zsa, and Dominick in the restaurant couldn't have been more helpful or nicer. Each day they helped me plan my sightseeing and couldn't... More

This is definitely the best hotel I've stayed in in Amsterdam. We actually drove there from the UK, and the valet met us, and deposited our car in the garage - the parking was included in the price, so that was nice. The hotel was realyl plush, and you enter via a courtyard, so even if you walk past the... More

Not the worst of hotels, but several issues made it less than enjoyable. We had arranged for a limosine pick up from Schiphol, but our flight got cancelled. We informed the hotel we would be getting there later therefore please arrange the limo later - but they didn't and then had the gall to blame me for their incompentency! They... More

The Grand is suitably located at the heart of the medieval city and the atmosphere has a touch of real "grandieuse". However, the staff totally ruined it for us: We booked through hotel's own website and opted for the "stay 4 -pay 3 nights" package. It was clear that breakfast was not inclusive and as we always enjoy our breakfast... More

The hotel was in the middle of a renovation, so sometimes the elevator didn't work. But the staff was very friendly and always took us up in the 'construction' elevator. The breakfast there was wonderful. We did not eat dinner there, however, as it was very expensive.

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.
