I travelled here with my boyfriend Sunday-Thursday 13th-17th February 2011 and have to say how brilliant it was. As I am a student we don't have masses of spare money, but we spent quite a while working out what hotel to stay in when in Amsterdam. Do not be put off that it is classed as "red light district" as...

After lots of looking and wanting a hotel close to everything, I happened upon Hotel De Gerstekorrel. Close to Central Station, Red Light District, Dam Square and public transportation. Rooms are small but very clean. Bathroom was adequate, just make sue you have an extra towel to put on the floor when you shower. No bath amenities except for soap,...

This little hotel is located just 3 mins from Dam Square and about 5 mins from the Red Light District! My friends and I loved its central location, staff and the extremely comfortable beds. We had a 1 triple and 1 twin room, both with ensuite washrooms that were simple, but functional. The hotel was a bit noisy in the...

We stayed five nights in this Hotel in April 2011. The Hotel is situated very central, just two minutes from dam square in one and another two minutes from the redlight-district in the opposite direction. The rooms are quite small and without any luxury, just as you'd expect from a **-Hotel. However, to my understanding, a classification of two stars...

I am sorry to hear that your stay was not enjoyable. I can tell you that the carpet has just been changed at the entrance of the hotel. The rooms in dependance building are smoking rooms but obviously smoking marihuana is not allowed. Unfortunately it is very difficult to control that but we definately control it. All the stay rooms...

When booking, be careful not to book a single room - they will charge more for 2 people. I had to upgrade to a room when I got there and it ended up being too expensive (but crap).

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.
