The accommodations are small, but clean and comfortable. Very European. Damstraat is a busy street day or night, being located just off Dam Square at the edge of the Red Light District. If you have a thick skin for noisy night life, this can be an excellent place to stay; if not, you'll prefer something a little farther out from... More

The room was clean, modern and well decorated! Breakfast was basic but good for the price to value spectrum as it was included in the booking. My only concern (and the reason I gave this hotel 3 out of 5 stars) is that I was in the shower and the cleaner walked in on me whilst I was in the... More

Very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. More than I expected in terms of room facilities, location and hotel in general. The location is fabulous and you are right in the centre of everything.

The staff are amazing. Friendly. Knowledgeable. Would definitely come back. Despite being on the second floor there was not a great deal of noise from outside the hotel which is perfectly located in Dam Straat right next to the canals and a short walk from many of the attractions. Awesome and highly recommended

Room was modern, cosy and clean. Staff were extremely nice and helpful with lots of local knowledge and tips. Amazing location literally two minutes from Dam square and the red light district and on a busy street with a vast selection of restaurants. Despite being in the middle of city centre we heard no noise from the bars. Wouldn't recommend... More

comodissimo per muoversi in città, un po arduo arrivare nelle camere ai piani superiori(niente ascensore e scale strette/ripide) con bagagli pesanti... really central, easy to get to and for night life. the upstairs are hard to reach with an heavy luggage because the stairs are not very large.

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.
