Great wine, great staff- perfect little bar to take away the stress of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. Make sure u make friends with the resident cat! Cannot recommend this place more highly. Reasonable prices as well.

The bar itself it's good, they have a decent selection of bottled beer and a few on draft. I was a little unsure of the cleaning process of the glasses as they seemed to dunk them into a sink full of soapy water and then rinse, rather then them actually being washed in a dishwasher. The staff were helpful in...

Right, there are many and varied opinions on here so I will try to remain as objective on here. Yes you are saving a few quid, but no you are not going to enjoy it. Manners cost nothing, yet the moody unwelcoming receptionist/bar staff would probably say otherwise. This reception set the tone of the stay. Communal areas littered with...

We travelled to Amsterdam for a friends birthday. Old Nickel suited all our needs as all we wanted was a place to put the head down. There was 3 of us to a room, the room was a little small but we did not expect anything grand for the price we paid. The hotel is central and very convenient to...

This place is a must. On arriving at the establishment you will be blown away by the charisma and charm offered by the owner, you will also be surprised by the level of customer care this hotelier displays. He may not greet you, smile or make eye contact but his happiness lies deep within. If you like your suitcase baked...

The overall experience was good. The hotel is perfectly located in the old town, just 5 minutes from train station, Dam square, red light district and walking distance to other attractions such as flower market, shopping district, and canals tour. If you are not too fussy and demanding the hotel is ok, at the beginning you could have a very...

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.
