We are a family of four that stayed for four nights in June. We spend our time sightseeing so we look for clean and comfortable hotels to spend the night and this place delivers. Pros Location - right off Dam Square and near the tram lines, 10 minute walk from the Centraal train station.. Plenty of food choices nearby. Staff... More

This could be a nice hotel considering the central position next to Dam square. Unfortunately it lacks air conditioning and/or proper ventilation, so that rooms and corridors in the afternoon tend to get filled up with a strong kitchen smell due to all the restaurants next door. That strong smell will make your stay unpleasant.

I sent my parents-in-law on a DFDS trip with one night in this hotel and they have just returned. This is what they have to say about the hotel.

We travelled to Amsterdam with DFDS from Newcastle and stayed here for one night. We found the hotel no problem having visited Amsterdam previously and had an idea where we were going. The staff were lovely and took a note of what time we required breakfast. Our room was on the top floor up a really narrow set of stairs.... More

The hotel was literally a block from the Dam Square - a 10 minute walk from the Central Train Station. The room was small, but apparently not much smaller than the average room in Amsterdam. The bed was comfortable. But we had NO view - we looked out onto the tiniest "courtyard" I have ever seen. But at least it... More

I visit Amsterdam every year - it is the most beautiful city and there is so much to see. With over 40 museums in Amsterdam alone, and with The Netherlands having the highest concentration of museums in the world, we enjoy every moment and you need to be in a prime location. And that is one of the best features... More

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.
