The moment you walk into this hotel, you know you've made the right choice. First of all, the location is ideal because it is quietly hidden away in a serene environment yet quite central. This hotel is befitting of its name unlike some other hotels in Amsterdam. It is truly magnificent. Staff members were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was...

As a five-star, expensive hotel, Sofitel Legend gives you what you look and pay for. For me the most notable thing was the staff! They were the best ever; very helpful, friendly, with a big smile on their faces. That holds true for receptionists, doormen, concierge, house keeping, waiters and all. The breakfast was quite satisfactory with great coffee. The...

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.
