Located along the main drag of the Red Light District, the Greenhouse Effect is a smoker-friendly joint, with a bar downstairs and clean and simple rooms upstairs.
The hotel’s nine rooms, located on three floors, sport themes that bear 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 are equipped with a television, safe and minibar, and free Wi-Fi works throughout the hotel. Note that all beds are singles here, so if you reserve a room for two, it will either be two twin beds (which can be pushed together) or bunk beds. Six rooms have their own checker-tiled bathroom, while three share baths in the hallways.
The friendly crew at the Greenhouse Effect Hotel does a little bit of everything, from running the popular bar downstairs to painting some of the surprisingly good murals on the walls of the guest rooms.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Note that the Greenhouse Effect does not have an elevator.

About the The Greenhouse Effect neighborhood
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.
