This is an excellent hotel, with superb suites and great facilities. The comfortable living area gave wonderful views across the canals, whilst the bedroom was internal, giving an unbelievably quiet night; the loudest sound I heard in two nights was a watch ticking. Being able to go for a swim and a sauna breaks up the days, and eases tired...

We spent a weekend in Amsterdam and unfortunately the airline did not deliver one of our bags. Zsa Zsa Zanolie, Guest Relations Manager, went out of her way to help us out and get us some essentials.

By way of luxury hotels, the Sofitel in Amsterdam is the crème de la crème. The guest experience was flawless from the time we arrived until we left - which was capped off by a personal chat and farewell from Zsa Zsa (the guest relations manager). We were upgraded to a suite - which was vast, extremely well appointed and...

We arrived full of excitement for a 4 day mini break taking in the sights of Amsterdam. The first thing we commented on was the very strange smell of boiling cabbage in the reception, this was in fact coming from the flowers. The room was not ready so we were offered complimentary drinks in the library bar, which we were...

Spent a few days there with my wife as a city break. Very clean, very fresh and extremely nice building in a great location.

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.
