    Beyond amazing!”

    Truly in the centre of Amsterdam, but so peaceful! Service, personal touch, beautiful rooms, the garden!

    We simply LOVE the Grand, and we even got married here! For our 3 year anniversary we decided to again stay here and it was truly unforgettable. The staff is very attentive and help you out with everything you need. (Niels, thanks for all your help as always!) The rooms look beautiful, very luxurious (they've got Hermes products in the bathroom) and the little personal touches are just what makes this hotel stand out from all other 5 star hotels for me. The beds are by the way amazing, and we are now tempted to actually buy the bed (new of course) as that is an option they offer! I do advise to always ask for a room at a higher floor, because if you are close to the street it may be a bit noisy. Their courtyard garden is beautiful and had a very nice exhibition of beautiful statues this time. It is so peaceful and beautiful, you do not feel like you are in the middle of Amsterdam. But the highlight was the private dinner in the marriage chamber, which is where we got married 3 years ago. A pianist (Hester, thank you so much for the lovely music and great company) was beautifully playing and the room was full of candles. So romantic! We had an amazing 7 course dinner with accompanying wine arrangement served by Louise, who gave us a great introduction and explanation to the wines and food. We really had a truly amazing evening!

    The Big Comfy Bed

    It's such a pleasant stay at Sofitel Amsterdam The Grand. Excellent location, staffs are very polite & efficient. Room upgraded to the top floor offers a stunning view overlooking the city. Bed is so comfy never wanted to get out. Price is a bit steep but this 5-star hotel has really lived up to her standard. Definitely my No.1 choice of stay if I ever visit Amsterdam again.

    Attentive staff, clean room & location couldn't be better.

    Really lovely stay, great room over looking the courtyard garden so it was very quiet. Attentive pleasant staff & above all a very nice well appointed room which was very clean. The location is excellent being just a stones throw away from Dam Square, museums & the red light district, although we felt like The Grand was a little oasis nicely tucked away. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment in the standard of the food but it has 24 hour room service & the restaurant looked great on our brief visit for a drink.

    It had charachter without being shabby

    the hotel was a hike from central station on foot, and tucked away behind its entrance gates in a courtyard. inside it was cosy but modern and clean. it felt like a 5* hotel in europe! the hotel had charachter felt through its history... the video in the library is interesting. the room was a good size and well furnished with some scrummy biscuits and fruit on arrival. bathroom was odd shape but well equiped. the bed was very very comfortable, it was very quite (canal view) and when the curtains were closed - dark!!! all in all a very pleasant experience, absolutely no complaints and shouldn't be for the price. make sure you order the hot chocolate, it was fantastic!

    clealiness, friendly staff, location

    My stay was beyond expectation. I have visited Europe many times and usually even a 5-star hotel disappoints me. In general, accommodation in Eur is expensive and unlike in any other countries where space is unlimited. In Europe, this hotel is considered spacious. The room is clean, the staff was SUPER knowledgeable, the swimming pool and saunas were superb as well. They also provide a free internet and business center where you can print anything you need. This is the best hotel out in my 2014 Eurotrip! Def. will come back!

    Location, location, location

    Our room was extremely small and far too modern for our taste. Not what we were expecting at all for a heritage hotel. Not enough room to open two suitcases. The front desk staff and doormen were extremely helpful and professional. We waited an hour for a snack in the bar, and half an hour to get a drink - the service was terrible, in nice surroundings. We loved the location, and took great photos around the neighbouring streets. We braved the crowds in the Red Light district, right around the corner - certainly eye opening!

    Location, quiet

    We took dinner in the hotel restaurant - a Sunday evening . The service was mostly indifferent or poor - one of the waiters wore a badly ripped suit and another waas just plaine sloppy. Both these were signs of absent management - we did not see any senior presence in the restaurant. Poor value overall. The hotel wants to impress guests but the delivery was poor and made it much less likely I will book a Sofitel for future trips
