I was surprised to see that check was in a pub, I can take this, a little quirky. Entrance to the rooms was via a door clearly marked "Dames" ie "ladies toilet" which I tried to avoid but upon insistence of the guy I went through to find a stair case and not a bathroom. I returned to the hotel...

Whoewer mentions steep stairways and small rooms merely forgets one thing - this hotel is in a HISTORICAL BUILDING. Folks, those apartments can't be anything else! Good points: great location, convenient bathrooms, big TV (I didn't use it but anyway!), comfortable beds AND a FANTASTIC BAR! Its interior (cerved wooden wall panels and furniture) previously used to be settled in...

The location is great and very close to Amsterdam Central and the Red District. The rooms are clean. There is a quaint bar downstairs with great music to hang out. The staff were friendly. Free wifi with good connection.

Let's start with the positive...... The location is very close to Amsterdam Central Station, and the Wi-fi is very good. The rooms are unbelievably tiny, only made up once every 3 days. There is no way to reach the front desk except by walking down 3 flights of stairs, and down the street 2 blocks. The staff is unconcerned, rude...

This place is a short walk from the train station. The bar downstairs is small and we never really drunk much there but the staff there were really friendly. You'd have to double check for yourself but when we stayed we were allowed to smoke in the room which is always a bonus when finding somewhere to stay in Amsterdam....

Location is great, 5 min from central station and where you'd like to be to visiting Amsterdam. Check out at 11am might be a good point for some. But rooms are noisy, really small and the worst is that you don't even have something like a plastic cup in the tiny bathroom. I paid 120€ a night and think it's...

I stayed here on a solo 2 day trip to Amsterdam. The rooms were small but newly renovated and had everything I needed so I was very happy. I think it is impossible to be closer to Central Station which is a plus if you are traveling. It is also close to great bars, restaurants, sights, etc. (premier Location). The...

This is actually one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in when visiting Amsterdam. I stayed in a single room with bathroom which is very small but if travelling with little luggage it's fine. Underbed storage also. Rooms are really modern and great shower. Most of the pics here on tripadvisor mustn't have been updated in a while. But...

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.
