The staff at the Greenhouse Effect Hotel does a little bit of everything, from running the popular bar downstairs to painting some of the stunningly good murals on the themed guest room walls. The two-star hotel won us over with equal dollops of personality, style and comfort.
The Greenhouse Effect offers nine rooms, all spotlessly clean, and sporting stylish plush chairs. Rooms are done in themes with spunky names like “Turkish Delight,” “Red Man,” and “Fluo.” We liked the “Mary Jane” room, which is painted a smart light green and offers a fantastic view of the action on the street below.
All rooms are equipped with a television, safe and minibar. The Greenhouse Effect also offers three suites located five minutes from the main hotel. These come equipped with a small kitchenette.
The checker-floored bathrooms are either private or shared.
The Greenhouse Effect is located near the center of the always-bustling Red Light district. Be sure to check out the bar that doubles as the reception, a chill area to have a hemp beer and take in the Warmoesstraat atmosphere.
Breakfast is included in the room rate (but not included for the suites). Note that the Greenhouse Effect has neither Internet access nor an elevator.

Red Light District, Amsterdam, Netherlands
About the The Greenhouse Effect neighborhood
Amsterdam's (in)famous Red Light District lies within the "Old Center," a short walk from Centraal Station. True, the area is home to those notorious red windows, live sex shows and marijuana-peddling coffee shops. But well-policed, yet happy-go-lucky 'hood is hardly a dangerous free-for all—and it's home to some cool shops and many affordable hotels.
