I stayed here for six nights in October, and it was a very nice experience. The concierge was very helpful, and the front desk staff was accommodating. The included breakfast was delicious. The rooms were modern, large enough and cozy, and you could control the temperature. The location was terrific. I could walk to the museums, Anne Frank house, and...

Luxurious, amazing staff, the perfect location and incredible service is how best to describe The Grand.

From canal cruises with dinner to private tours of the famous art galleries and reservations at some of 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.
