The hotel was in a prime location, close to everything. We walked everywhere! Great price and the people who worked there were very friendly and always had a smile. Only downfall was there was no aircon or fan in rooms. Had to open window to get a breeze but the noise at night then kept you up. Small price to... More

Great security, especially for the location! Amazing location, near everything and anything you would want to see. Amsterdam is not that large so we walked everywhere. Definitely recommend to do the Anne Frank House, the Prostitution museum and their Flea Market for local delicacies

Great location in red light district. Close to everything. Perhaps too close. Very noisy at night. Basic rooms comfortable. Very clean shared toilets and showers. Steep narrow stairs to room. Very helpful cordial staff. Very good breakfast though 9am is a bit late

Good location for redlight/central area. Not far from leidsplein. 24 hour bar for guests. Good restaurant for the price. Decent breakfast and the staff where accomadating. Staying in a single room i was beside the stairwell which pretty much meant noise all day and night between the doors stairs and busy areas. But for the price it was pretty fair... More

Amsterdam is a beautiful city, full of culture and wonderful opportunities to sightsee amongst the backdrop of years of history. This hotel doesn't fit that bill - it's cheap, has beds, serves decent beer and is smack bang in the middle of all the 'alternative' entertainment you could think of. Parties or stag do's will love it and the owners... More

Booked this hotel as a large group of friends staying in a couple of rooms. Got the hotel at a reasonable rate for Amsterdam right in the middle of the red light district.

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.
