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.

Only just remembered I didn't leave a review for here. My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. I stayed here before years ago and still like it as much now.

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.
