Having stayed here for a long weekend with two of my friends I can only recommend this place to anyone. Firstly the atmosphere of the place is fantastic, with a bar and coffee shop always buzzing with people. The hotel staffs are very friendly and accommodating and were extremely helpful. Even the breakfast was lovely. The room itself was very...

The Greenhouse Effect bar and coffeeshop associated with this accommodation are awesome and very friendly (best of all the ones we visited in Amsterdam) - it is where you are going to want to hang out during your stay. There is a lot of character in the rooms, and they are kept very clean. The location is ideal - the...

Stayed in the Turkish delight room and although there was no view the room was more than suitable with a small but good shower and all felt very secure. The beds were also exceptionally comfortable and had many a good nights sleep. Happy hour on the bar all day, which was always a great spot to start the night and...

Myself and 7 friends stayed at the Greenhouse Effect in the Uptown and Deluxe apartments for 3 nights during June 2012. We arrived too early for check-in, but the woman behind the bar let us store our luggage so we could have a wander around. Our apartments were huge! Amazing location - we had one that looked over the canal....

3 of us stayed here for 2 nights - initially we were a little apprehensive of the place, given the access to the rooms through a door next to a loud bar leading to a steep flight of stairs. We were allocated the room name the sailors cabin. The room was minimal and not big - with just enough space...

I adore the Greenhouse Effect. I have stayed here at least a half dozen times over the years. I hadn't been there since 2001 and had heard nightmarish stories about how built up Amsterdam had gotten. I am happy to report that both Amsterdam and The Greenhouse Effect have maintained their "cooler than the other side of the pillow" identity....

Myself and 2 friends spent 2 nights in the "Fluo" room. Great welcome, spotlessly clean and a lot better than the photos that their own website imply, comfortable, and you couldnt want a more central stay. . Good value too. I would recommend this hotel to any open minded person but not to family's (even though they supply cots) I...

Good location for everywhere in Amsterdam. Fairly costly, stayed in the arabian night room - nice theme. However in the middle of the night, someone broke into our friends room and stole their phones, wallets and watches! Hotel couldn't do much, but you should think that security could be tighter!

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.
