Stayed here 3 nights. On arrival we were offered a double room instead of the twin that easyjet had reserved ,so we took it and found to our delight that we were on the first floor. Room was more than spacious enough, clean and more than adequate. The bed was...well the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in! Shower...

*Room is small and basic but it was clean. *Beds are comfy *Bathroom is small and in the shower area it smelt like urine a bit. *We were on the second floor overlooking the street of Damstraat, and it is noisy through the night and so we didn't sleep well at all. Also the people in the room above ours...

Stayed at Hotel de Gerstekorrel during a trip last April. The number one thing to keep in mind about this hotel is that there is no elevator. We were given a room on the top floor, about 5 very steep flights up. The staircases in Amsterdam are notoriously narrow which makes this hotel feel very authentic, but after a night...

We checked in early and were offered the choice of immediately getting into a room on the fourth floor or waiting an hour for a room on the second floor. As were were only in Amsterdam for two days we wanted to get settled as soon as possible and took the fourth floor option. The stairs were as steep as...

Well…The hotel was OK….beds were comfy. However we were put in the smallest room ever! No room to swing a mouse let alone a cat. Bathroom again was tiny with possibly the worst shower in any hotel we have stayed at! Nothing more than a dribble coming out of the shower head. The stairs are steep and we were staying...

At first when booking this hotel, I wasn't too sure from reading a few unpleasant reviews. When I got there, the room was clean apart from the burnt cigerette stains near the window, and it did have a bit of a smokey smell to it but apart from that it was fine as we were only there for two nights...

This hotel is in an excellent location, which to me is very important for a city break. It is literally a few steps away from Dam Square and all the major streets of Amsterdam can easily be walked to. The staff are friendly and reception is 24 hours.

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.
