I've been staying at the Grand for many years, but since their recent renovations I stay nowhere else. There are centrally located near the Dam. Their concierge service is top rated...use them for passes to the Van Gogh Museum. While in town don't miss the recently updated Rijkesmuseum. If you get a chance try the small but good Blaux aan...

My wife and I had the pleasure of celebrating our anniversary at the Sofitel Legend Grand. It is an old hotel that has been refurbished throughout and is very comfortable, even luxurious.

Perfect location in the center of the historic district of Amsterdam. The Grand is on a quiet street but is very close to all of the action. The service was efficient, polite & friendly.

When traveling to Amsterdam for work, we divided our stay between this hotel and a Hilton. This one was beautiful, inside and out, and is located right in the heart of Amsterdam, by the beautiful canals. The Red Light district is a short walk, too. My room itself was quite small, although very cozy. The hotel gardens were very pretty,...

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.
