My week-long stay here was great from start to finish. The hotel is quiet and old-fashioned on the outside, but has every modern convenience, is beautifully furnished, and is centrally located. I really appreciated the opportunity to swim in the pool and use the spa, especially after a hard day of sight-seeing. Finally, the concierge service was amazing. This was... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for 3 nights- 2 before a trip to Africa and 1 on the return. One would be hard pressed to find a hotel with a nicer, more accomodating staff than that of the Sofitel. First, they were willing to store our extra luggage for almost 2 weeks while we went on safari. Second, we had... More

My wife stayed for 4 nights along with 3 other couples. The service was incredible and the location was ideal. Close to the tram station and central station. We were greeted graciously with our room facing the canal. What can I say...thank you for a memorable stay!

We stayed at the Grand for three days before going on a safari in Africa. Parts of the building is centuries old with old world elegance. Of course, all of the modern amenities one would desire is available. The room we had was somewhat small, but was fine for the short period of time we were there. Our friends also... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few days. The location is incredible--just close enough to the downtown core, but far enough to enjoy the classic, quiet ambiance. The hotel was superb, service outstanding and overall experience was top notch. We would definitely recommend this hotel and the rooms were massive (by European standards) OUTSTANDING!

Located on the edge of the Red Light District has both benefits and cons, but the hotel is an oasis of calm, the service attentive and the rooms stylish and well appointed. A great place from which to explore the City.

Wonderful hotel. Brilliant staff very very well appointed. Everything seems pristine and new nice touches with beautiful flowers everywhere. Can't fault it and is so peaceful with a lovely courtyard in the centre of the city. Management can take a bow for their staff make it for me.
