What a let down. The building itself is beautiful and the staff courteous, however that is where the positives end. The king suite overlooking the canal was large but terribly worn and dated. The carpet was stained and to get to the toilet you needed walk through the shower. Really? Cleaning was poor and haphazard requiring several calls to the... More

The Sofitel Grand is ideally located just off Dam Square, adjacent to a canal and with easy walking distance to the train station, the shopping areas, museums and bars/cafes. Although being central the hotel is built around a quadrangle that seems to keep external noise out and maintain a quiet atmosphere. We were a little apprehensive because we booked a... More

I can honesty say this has been one of the best hotels I have stayed in. We got upgraded to a prestige suite on arrival ( having booked a deluxe) which was beautiful. Large comfortable amazing bathroom and canal views. Very helpful staff .. Recommending places to go showing us how to get there on the map. Organising tickets (... More

Location: This hotel is very near to Dam Square which was just a 7 minute walk away. But it is very serene as it is "hidden" away on a side street (it felt that way for me!). Many restaurants within walking distance too. Even a local "coffeeshop" close by if you wanna get high! ;P Restaurants: Ate at the Michelin... More

I was there for business purposes in the beginning od December. The location is perfect, 100 m from Damm square. Property is well maintained. Nice attentive service. Breakfast is good. Delicious cookies offered free by reception. Nespresso machine in the room.

This hotel is perfectly located, a 10 minutes walk from the railway station, and 2 minutes from the famous Dam place. The room is cute and cosy, with everything you need including a Nespresso machine and a nice view. Everything was clean. The breakfast buffet was very fresh, with a lot of choice. You can also order special things "a... More

Sure it's expensive but you get so much more than a nice room! First location - while it is 500m from the Red Light District it is on a quite side canal and set back in a courtyard. Service - the staff are friendly and helpful and yet not subservient so the whole place feels comfortable and relaxed. We went... More

Staff friendly, service decent, location good - although proximity to the red light district can lead to some sights which won't appeal to everyone. Rooms comfortable, although not particularly big (for which read "quite cosy"). The bathroom and separate lavatory were connected by a shower without locking doors - didn't bother us, but won't be to everyone's taste. Much more... More
