Pleasant basic rooms with good European breakfast included. Great value considering location in the middle Amsterdam. Relatively quiet at night (not silent, but definately good enough to sleep) with window shut despite being on a lively street. Internet was patchy at best.

Came back after a fantastic stay at Hotel de Gerstekorrel this weekend with friends. Steep stairs and no lift but is pretty standard to all Amsterdam hotels. We were in room 23 with 4 single beds, and was really nice. Spacious and plenty of room and the beds were so comfy I wanted to take it home! The only down...

We visited for 3 nights in November and found the hotel to be a great little place for a trip to Amsterdam . The location is about 10 minutes walk from Central station and easy enough to find.It is right in the heart of the action a couple minutes walk from the red light district but far enough away. On...

This hotel is located right in the city centre, just under 10 minutes to get to the station. My priority for any hotel is cleanliness, and the room was lovely and clean. The bathroom was small, and more of a wet room as mentioned in many reviews, however it was clean and the power of the shower was just fine....

A basic hotel in the centre of Amsterdam, which could be overlooked when walking past all the bars, cafes and fast-food outlets. The receptionist was very welcoming and hospitable and offered us maps and information on arrival as well as a locked room to leave our luggage until our room was ready. Our room was on the fourth floor, which...

Yes, there isn't an elevator neither a real wardrobe, but the position is very central and the bill not expensive at all for Amsterdam. In addition the hotel is very clean and my bed comfortable. At the end is a good compromise to travel "low cost" but with decent standards.

A quaint hotel right next to Dam square. Lovely breakfast spread and a fantastic location. Like many buildings in Amsterdam this one too does not have lifts and the stairs are very steep. Situated in a traditional Amsterdam style building the hotel has enough amenities for a quick stopover in the city

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.
