We had a wonderful week in Sofitel. The Junior Suite was fantastic ( 45square meters ) specially when you travel with a teenager, it has a separate sitting room with a fold out sofa. The bathroom is very well appointed, very nice smelling products! And a separate toilet! Since the weather was cold and rainy we very much appreciated the...

The Grand was our final destination after a two-week vacation in Croatia. We only had a night in Amsterdam and wanted something a little special. Unfortunately, our experience as guests left us unimpressed. First, it took more than 30 minutes to get the bags to the room, which made us worry they got stolen from the entrance where we left...

The moment you walk into this hotel, you know you've made the right choice. First of all, the location is ideal because it is quietly hidden away in a serene environment yet quite central.

As a five-star, expensive hotel, Sofitel Legend gives you what you look and pay for. For me the most notable thing was the staff! They were the best ever; very helpful, friendly, with a big smile on their faces. That holds true for receptionists, doormen, concierge, house keeping, waiters and all. The breakfast was quite satisfactory with great coffee. The...

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.
