The guy we met there was very friendly and informative. It was a great place for position. Served the purpose of a nights sleep as out most of the day and evening. Don't smoke usually only in Amsterdam and special occasions. Clean but bit moody in places.

Thank you for staying at Amsterdam Cribs and leaving the review. I apologize for the unpleasant experience that you had because of the smell issues. The pipes have been power-cleaned by a professional plumbing service after you vacated the room. The plumber insisted that the source of the smell was mostly due to the strong wind weather that caused the... More

Lovely friendly and welcoming greeting, full of tips on how best to enjoy our time in Amsterdam. Right near the RLD and Dam square, so perfect locations. Rooms weren't spotless, but they were cleaned to a good standard, the towels and linen were fresh, the bed really comfy, and there was always plenty of hot water. Perfect accommodation if you...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amsterdam Cribs B&B is a smoker's friendly place, geared towards people looking to explore the city at a laid back pace. It's a great alternative to a typical budget hotel or a crowded hostel dorm. All our rooms are private and equipped with cable TV/DVD and a shower/toilet. We are located in the heart of Amsterdam, just five minutes walk from the Dam Square, Royal Palace, and the Red Light District. Note: The Cribs has a narrow and winding stairway, which may not be suitable for the elderly. ... more   less
