This place is not a hotel, despite what its title may suggest. Rooms are tiny and not fit for purpose. Maybe for a student backpacking around the world but not much else. I stayed 10 minutes and then booked somewhere else.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the

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
