My wife and I stayed at the Sofitel Legend for four nights two weeks ago. Fabulous hotel in a great, fun filled city. We booked through American Express and were given a free upgrade to a wonderful suite. The staff was attentive and friendly. The concierge helpful in getting museum tickets and perfect directions to drive to Harleem, including the... More

Lovely building, comfortable rooms and very central although most of surrounding area is red light district. Limited choice of good restaurants in immediate area. Walking distance from central station which has very good airport link. Reception service excellent. Good supply of toiletries. Room prices in Amsterdam seem to be quite high and although I have paid less for similar accommodation... More

Although I am a regular traveller to Amsterdam, this is my first stay in this hotel. It is very central and impressive. Once you have walked across the courtyard you can already feel peace and serenity - and yet you are steps from the madness of Amsterdam city centre. Check-in was efficient with professional and friendly staff, a very nice... More

The hotel is in the center of the old canal district of Amsterdam, but the grounds are spacious. The building is historic and a tour of the facility shows where weddings and balls of the rich and powerful took place in yesteryear. The rooms understandably are a bit smaller than recently constructed luxury hotels, but are comfortable and well appointed.... More

This is a lovely property in central Amsterdam complete with a grand circular driveway entrance and nicely appointed rooms -- high ceilings, modern furnishings and nice roomy bathrooms -- at least at the superior level. However, check-in was not the best. The bellhop dropped our luggage. When we asked for an extra robe and luggage rack, none appeared, and at... More

We spent 3 days in the hotel and it was a wonderful few days away. The hotel whilst is just off Dam square once you step inside the archway the bustling city appears miles away. Service at the front desk was very welcoming and had us sorted very quickly. The rooms aren't huge but extremely comfortable. Once we saw the... More

A stunning hotel - big rooms, fabulous beds and a prime location in Amsterdam. It isn't cheap, but worth every penny. Make sure you join the free hotel tour if you get the chance and find out more about the amazing history of the building. End one of your nights in the world class cocktail bar - wonderful staff that... More

We stayed here as the last leg of a honeymoon trip. The staff was so friendly that they upgraded us to the most fabulous suite I have ever had the good fortune to stay in - two levels, including ceilings that must have been 15 feet high on the first level. The hotel itself was lovely, filled with history and... More
