Stunning Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam”

In an excellent location for exploring all areas of Amsterdam. The hotel is a stunning example of early 20th Century architecture, which meant that the reception area did not look like every other hotel, with imposing desks to queue at - we checked in by sitting in a large airy office. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, but not imposing. The room (Junior Suite with City View) was large, very comfortable and very clean. Excellent bathroom too. Free mini bar - restocked very day.
A very small criticism, was the lack of a socket close to a mirror for easy hair-drying. The price of the breakfast was expensive.

The Amrath did not disappoint. It is a magnificent building both inside and out. The rooms have high, high ceilings and are immaculately clean and well-decorated. We stayed in a Junior Suite which had 4 enormous windows which overlooked the city canal and was just a perfect base for our anniversary trip. The staff were really friendly and helpful (our daughter had arranged a surprise bottle of champagne in our room with them and they made sure that it was chilled and ready when we arrived). We didn't bother with the breakfast as it was expensive, but did eat in the restaurant for dinner one night and the food was very good. The bar had a lovely welcoming dark interior with an enormous bowl of snacks to nibble after a day wandering the canals of the city. The free mini-bar was a real bonus and meant that we had champagne as an aperitif in our room every evening! Then there was the Nespresso machine, the free wi-fi, the large comfortable and clean bathroom with large bath, shower and double sinks...and the evening service to your room to replenish any coffees/teas... Could not find fault (apart from the positioning of a socket near a mirror to make hairdrying easier!!!) The location really is only a 5 minute walk from the station so train was definitely the best choice of transport. Didn't go to the Well-Being Centre, but it did look very inviting. If we ever return to Amsterdam then this would be my first choice of hotel.

The Shining in Amsterdam (in a good way)”

Super cool vintage hotel, creepy in a great way, awesome retro details and incredible Amsterdam style of architecture. Spa was great and a perfect way to relax after trucking around the city, and like everyone else, the free mini bar is a classy bonus that you rarely find these days. Would suggest a request for a room in the original wing for more authenticity.

Dear Alexander. Thank you for taking the time and effort to share your experience about your stay at the Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam. Although some time has passed since your staying with us, I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay as much as you did. The comparison to our building being similar to "The Shining" makes me smile but glad that it is alike in a positive way! Thank you for your compliments about the historic, School of Amsterdam building, which as you have suggested is unique and retro. A number of improvements have been made since your visit and am pleased to confirm that the complimentary mini-bar is still offered. It is good to see that you had the time to enjoy the spa and am pleased that you liked the room in the original wing in which you stayed. It will be our pleasure to welcome you back to the Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam and hope that we will see you again in the near future. With kind regards, Jesper Lauersen General Manager

the mini bar was stunning value, as was he free in room internet
lack of air conditioning and the water pipes warm all time. they if were boxed would have made room cooler

Excellent location for everything.Stunning hotel and architecture. staff very friendly and helpful.Never stayed in any hotel where you were given a free full mini bar and also free internet. only downside was lack of cool air as this was set by hotel and couldn't be lowered by me. the fact the hot water pipes are exposed made the room too warm. had to sleep on top of bed. however excellent value and food in restaurant very good and great value. will def return next year and have told everyone of it's great value for money

Lovely but over priced Hotel”

Location

This hotel has a superb location, not far from the central station. It is advertised as a 5 star hotel, but unfortunetley it is not. I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world, and this doesn't come close. However, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and tidy, very spacious and comfortable. The rooms are quite expensive, far too much for what you get, however, the mini bar is included in the price, so if your a drinker, then i suggest you empty it each night that you stay. I didn't have time to use the health facilities, but am informed that they are good. An enjoyable stay but not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

Dear Sergey. It is always appreciated to hear feedback about our guests’ stay at the Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam and we thank you for taking the time and effort to share your experience and your valuable input with us. It is good to see that you found everything to be great but apologise that you did not feel that the breakfast was value for money. Since your stay the breakfast offering has been reviewed and believe that you would be impressed with the changes that have been made. Due to the hotel being housed in a historic building which has been expanded over the years and converted from being an original shipping house to offices and now a hotel, the passages may appear as if it is a labyrinth. I apologise if this caused you any inconvenience and hope that you will choose to stay with us again when next visiting Amsterdam. With kind regards, Jesper Lauersen General Manager

Overpriced!!”

The hotel is very well located .. near station and the old town. It’s a historical building but the atmosphere was cold. From the reception, the room until the breakfast room and it’s service. My bed sheet was disrupted and we got an old Pyjamas. The cook didn’t greet us and the breakfast was optically unappetizing. The room is dark and the atmosphere was again cold. Really pity for the price we paid ..

Dear Dina. It is always appreciated to hear feedback about our guests’ stay at the Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam and we are sorry to hear that your stay did not meet the high-standards/type of experience that you expected. Your compliment about the location is noted and we thank you for this. We would have liked to have addressed your complaint about the bed linen and bath-robe at the time of your stay and since then have introduced a system to ensure that all linen provided is 100% perfect. I am sorry that you found the atmosphere and the service to be cold as we try our hardest to create a memorable and pleasant experience for our guests.

location, exceptional staff courtesy and attention to details.
the main bedroom door is too thin or not well sound insulated, you can hear all is going on outside in the corridor and most probably viceversa.

unconventional hotel architecture, the entrance hall does not have a lounge where you can rest, too tiny reception, but soon as you go past it, you will discover a mixed experience between a convent and a middle eve castle, but again it is not as it looks; it used to be a shipping house... the rest you will have to find out by yourself... hihihi
