When traveling to Amsterdam for work, we divided our stay between this hotel and a Hilton. This one was beautiful, inside and out, and is located right in the heart of Amsterdam, by the beautiful canals. The Red Light district is a short walk, too. My room itself was quite small, although very cozy. The hotel gardens were very pretty,...

I was coming in for a business trip and spent two nights here. It is a great hotel. My room was huge and I had a personal butler. It is a little pricey but worth it. It is in a great location and you can literally walk to nearly everything. Highly recommended.

I agree with previous comment - many of the staff were arrogant; and we were forced to keep our windows closed because it was so noisy outside at night. One staff-person even suggested that I wasn't a guest at the hotel, asking for my room number. Concierge neglected to get us tickets for the Anne Frank house after we asked...

Overpriced for the services provided. Lots of arrogance among the staff. Very noisy as the hotel is on the flight vector for as Schipol Airport. The location was terrific. Amsterdam is magnificent city. The lobby and grounds are gorgeous.

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.
