Advertised as 'retro'! Our room wasn't retro, just not been decorated in years!! Clean, very basic, good location. Our room was facing the canal which was lovely, just v noisy at night which was fine by us.

I stayed here last weekend within a group of seven friends (including Charlotte B). Upon arrival we checked in via the bar area and made our way to our rooms. There are quite a lot of stairs in this hotel so I wouldn't recommend staying here if you or anyone in your party have mobility issues. Myself and two others...

I've never written a bad review for a hotel in my life, but this is literally THE worst hotel I've ever stayed at. You're basically paying for a really crappy and really expensive Hostel. The rooms are dirty, the hotel reception is a dive bar. The WiFi doesn't work. The manager at the hotel is extremely rude and ignorant of...

Initially everything was good. Was greeted by bar staff. Who spoke very good English, checked in like normal. Stayed for 3 days. Room wasn't cleaned during our stay. There was a night porter who was available to let you in late at night. The shower was reasonable although not ensuite, still private just outside the room. The manager was incredibly...

Booked a long weekend with a group of friends. I can't make any comment in the value for money as it was paid for by my friends as a birthday treat. I loved the hotel, stairs included! It's a typical Amsterdam style building so if you aren't a fan of the steep stairs then it's possibly not for you. Me...

Initially booked because of the reasonable price but so glad I did. This is a very clean and friendly hotel. Bar is well stocked and not expensive, staff are friendly and it's a busy place with a right mix of customers. There are seats outside and it's great to sit out with a beer to watch the variety of people...

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.
