This is the only hotel to stay in Amsterdam. Perfect location, staff and accommodations. We stayed at the De L'Europe last year and found it to be as we remembered. We plan to return next year.Freddy's Bar is a great place to have a drink and relax.

Arguably the best hotel in Amsterdam with great rooms and service. Friendly staff. Well-located. The two restaurants, one a Michelin 2 star, are top. We had a nice massage at the spa, and met another cool couple while dining. Freddy Heineken, the richest man in Holland, built it, and cared enough to do it right.

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.
