Great hotel in Red Light District
I stayed at the Hotel the Crown. I read about it in Lonely Planet Guide. Right in the heart of the Red Light District. At the time it was 40 Guilders per night. clean rooms, great staff. Pool table and bar downstairs, lively depending on number of guests. No curfew . I did not need a reservation. Simply walked in, but that was during low season. British owned. Bar open till 5 AM.
Directions: In Red Light District, 10 minutes walk from Central Station.
