I stayed here first week of January, one night, business trip and this hotel did everything that you could expect, really friendly staff, good rooms, good shower, good wifi and a very good breakfast buffet. It felt a tiny bit on the expensive side, maybe currency fluctuations hitting home here, will I use the hotel again, yes definitely.

The hotel was a beautiful rehab of a historic building on the canal. The rooms were luxurious but a little small with all the furniture. The beds were not comfortable. There was a mattress topper on the bed, which made the bed too soft. The duvet was too warm and it was impossible to remove the inner comforter portion so...

What a night!! The best New Years Eve so far. Everything was perfectly organized, even the smallest details were well thought. The staff looked amazing, everyone was in custome and ready to party (with respect). I would def recommend this party if you want to have a sophisticated night out with friends.

We had high hopes of our New Year trip to a Gala Dinner and Masked Ball at this Hotel - but sadly, although the venue was not unpleasant, it didn't deliver what it promised on the tin. We were dressed in Ball Gowns and Black Tie for the €200ph 7 course Gala Dinner - so you can imagine our surprise...

Located in the center of action. Staff are very very nice. Food and room service are top notch. Even got a Butler that came with the room. The room was clean and fresh and the bathroom was so out of this world. Really luxury hotel and I would definitely visit again!

We had the High Tea. The tea and food ware ok, not very special. We were served by a member of staff who was not very polite. Also her tone was a little aggressive sometimes. This was quite disappointing, as in a five star hotel we expect excellent service.

As usual my best place to stay in during my visit to Amsterdam is the Sofitel , the historical feeling behind the old walls, the decorations, the great service and the location in the middle of the city center. The best hotel in Amsterdam

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.
