My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and were so glad we did. The building in which the hotel is located has a long history from the time the original buildings were erected as two nunneries. If staying, make time to take the 11am tour of the building. The hotel is in the red light district and only...

From what I could see, this is by far the best hotel in the busiest part of Amsterdam. It's located in an incredible position just a stones throw from the Red Light district, yet just far enough away to escape. Everything you need is within walking distance. The staff are great, the room is exquisite and the bed so comfortable,...

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.
