By way of luxury hotels, the Sofitel in Amsterdam is the crème de la crème. The guest experience was flawless from the time we arrived until we left - which was capped off by a personal chat and farewell from Zsa Zsa (the guest relations manager). We were upgraded to a suite - which was vast, extremely well appointed and... More

We arrived full of excitement for a 4 day mini break taking in the sights of Amsterdam. The first thing we commented on was the very strange smell of boiling cabbage in the reception, this was in fact coming from the flowers. The room was not ready so we were offered complimentary drinks in the library bar, which we were... More

Spent a few days there with my wife as a city break. Very clean, very fresh and extremely nice building in a great location. Perhaps they try a little too hard when you check in and two of the staff accompany you to the room and go over the amenities. We felt a little embarrassed because being quiet people it... More

We stayed here five nights at the beginning of this year's European vacation and had a wonderful experience. First of all, the property is gorgeous as well as historic and because of its courtyard reminded us of the grand, lovely, famous hotel we enjoyed in Paris. The location is superb and we were easily able to walk to most of... More

Picked Sofitel Legend due to reviews we read and the central location in Amsterdam. We had an excellent room with a canal view. Concierge was excellent and Jonathan helped us organize our itinerary in advance - helping us with restaurant reservations and providing us with helpful recommendations. The staff at the entrance of the hotel were always polite and helpful... More
