Cheap hotels in Red Light District, Amsterdam

Amsterdam's (in)famous Red Light District lies within the Old Center, and is a short walk from the city's Centraal Station. True, the area is home to those notorious red windows, live sex shows and marijuana-peddling coffee shops, but it's hardly a dangerous free-for all. A heavy police presence and corner cameras keep the area safe.

As night falls, the narrow streets become increasingly crowded (and increasingly noisy) with roving gangs of happy-go-lucky tourists out for a fun night. Perhaps ironically, the Red Light District also boasts some traditional attractions, such as the Oude Kerk (The Old Church) and some cool shops.

Sleeping in the Red Light District is recommended only for tourists up for the fun. While the neighborhood includes lots of budget hotels, many offer just the bare basics, and many are located above pubs and coffeeshops. From your window you'll be able to survey the steady stream of tourists. If this sounds appealing, go for it!
