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,...

Another awesome and elegant "Sofitel" hotel. It is "the" place to fully indulge. Service, food, rooms/suites, amenities, design, decor, quality, and every small detail that may come to mind-if your a perfectionist- Is way beyond 5 stars.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on business in July 2014. A fast 20 minute taxi drive from local Schiphol airport (25euros) helps you get a good introduction to the local area of cycle lanes, narrow cobbled streets, shops, bridges and the famous canals - utterly unique. The Grand is nestled in a quiet area by a canal and...

The Grand is probably, overall, the best hotel in Amsterdam. But it's frustrating to see that perfection is within reach and the management fails to achieve it. For one thing, the hotel locks the entrance at midnight, requiring guests to identify themselves over an intercom to gain entry. This is unnecessary. Have passkey entry or post a security officer. Simply...

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.

“You get some street noise on the canal side, but it's minimal and I enjoyed it. Can't go wrong (canal vs non-canal).”
