Spent a few days there with my wife as a city break. Very clean, very fresh and extremely nice building in a great location. Perhaps they try a little too hard when you check in and two of the staff accompany you to the room and go over the amenities. We felt a little embarrassed because being quiet people it...

We stayed here five nights at the beginning of this year's European vacation and had a wonderful experience. First of all, the property is gorgeous as well as historic and because of its courtyard reminded us of the grand, lovely, famous hotel we enjoyed in Paris. The location is superb and we were easily able to walk to most of...

Picked Sofitel Legend due to reviews we read and the central location in Amsterdam. We had an excellent room with a canal view. Concierge was excellent and Jonathan helped us organize our itinerary in advance - helping us with restaurant reservations and providing us with helpful recommendations. The staff at the entrance of the hotel were always polite and helpful...

This is a proper world class hotel squeezed into a bustling part of a magical city. The staff were exceptionally helpful and seemed to outnumber the guests.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood 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.
