Check in takes a long time for the most expensive and tiny rooms in Amsterdam. The staff simply doesn't care at all. The room and bathroom are small, and we booked a more deluxe room, I can't imagine what a cheaper room would be! EVERY time we arrived at the hotel after dark, we were grilled by the idiot doorman...

The decor is outdated. The service is moderately decent. Prices of the produce are a rip off and the food is bad. The breakfast is approx 36 euros a head. Basically for a yogurt with some eggs, bacon and sausages, a total rip off. We were haggled constantly regarding a room deposit, that was totally unnecessary considering we paid in... More

The Grand is all that the name implies. A true oasis centrally located in the heart of the old city, it's a perfect refuge after a day out in the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. Splurge on the "apartments" rather than the standard rooms for truly royal experience.

The greatest place to stay. Everyone of the staff members go above and beyond to exceed your needs. Great location easy travel to anywhere in the city they have bikes available. Food is great. I could not find a flaw. We traveled Europe for two weeks stayed in very nice places everywhere, and this was my favorite. Looking forward to... More

Two years ago in December we went to Amsterdam and decided to stay in The Legend. We found a promotion on their website, and had no expectations at all, since we had booked the cheapest room (which was still really expensive for common people like us:)). Arriving in the hotel lobby was like entering a movie, with pictures of all... More

We stayed for 4 nights for a city break. Used the limo collection service (€120 to be met by a driver in S-class Merc) - a great start. Lovely hotel, décor and location. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very comfortable and well-appointed although not on the large size. Bathroom (no bath in ours which was... More

It's a wonderful hotel in an excellent location. Canal view room a little on the small side but manageable and well equipped. Terrific staff, all with good energy, friendly, effective and helpful. Only two niggles. Breakfast was excellent but at €37.5 per person per day? Really? I've never met that level of pricing before. And the restaurant (service, food and... More

My husband and I spent this weekend at this lovely hotel. The service was fabulous. We received a bottle of champagne on our anniversary and a card. Very thoughtful and the doorman is lovely, he helped us a lot. The room was gorgeous with a great view of the canal.

The Hotel is good, the location is good. The breakfast does not include hot dishes, there are not a lot of seats for guests. The service in the bistro Bridges is not polaite and slow. It makes my mood awful. Dishes are small.
