Although it's in the heart of the red light district, I felt very safe! It's a very touristy area. The hotel rooms desperately need decorating and the plumbing was awful. Every time the shared toilet flushed the sink made a gargle noise. Also one toilet was almost always blocked. The shared showers were always clean and we didn't have to...

We're a couple and we stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Ours room was cleaned and big enough. The bar on the ground floor is a perfect choice for drinking a beer before sleeping and their restaurant has good plates. The position of hotel is perfect! You're in the middle of Amsterdam and from here you're able to go...

The hotel was clean, spacious with a free hot breakfast. The room had three beds, wardrobe and a sink. The bathrooms were always clean. The cleaning staff called every day. The breakfast was excellent and the bar had very cheap drinks. It was a 20 minute walk from the Van Gogh museum which was the furthest we went. Very central....

I did not know it was located in the red lite district. The location was dirty and full of tourists at night caused many disturbances. The breakfast is below average with this price. The place has share bathroom and is very old. I stayed only one day and could not wait to check out.

the only realy positive thing was the friendly staff and the central location. keeping in mind it is a one star hotel all i will say is that it could be cleaner, they definitely have to do something with that carpet, stairs are very narrow and steep and there is no lift and also on the third floor there are...

Had my doubts while booking this hotel due to 1 star, however it under promises and overdelivers. Ok maybe i'll award the 1 star to the staircase going up to your room - it's steep and tight and a struggle for those with suitcases. Location is perfect, a ten minute walk from the train station. It's smack bang in the...

Almost everything has already been said about this hotel, excellent location, friendly staff, breakfast, steep and narrow stairs, ... However, we had a bit of bad luck with this hotel, as we arrived on the hottest day of the summer, and there was no air conditioning. We had a fan, though. Also, we were bitten by bugs and found them...

A group of 4 of us stayed here for 3 nights from the 15th August. We weren't expecting much, but were so pleasantly surprised to find friendly staff running the place, 24 hour bar, strict security (to which you show your room key card to be allowed access to the hotel part), a big spacious (and clean) room, fresh towels...

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.
