The hotel is centrally located. The staff is very friendly. High-grade and beautifully designed rooms. Great facilities in the hotel. The SPA and the GYM are a tad tiny, but with everything you need for a proper wellness treatment. I'd recommend the suites, as they are a lot more spacier than the rooms. The food at the Bistro is of... More

The staff was great and service was wonderful! Nice rooms, however, a bit odd that I had to walk down to the bedroom (entrance, bathroom and closets are upstairs)...something to consider for physical disabilities/handicap. 1st. floor (street level rooms) are a bit noisy from traffic and pedestrians. I had to ask to change rooms.

I can't think of anything they could have done better. They literally had staff in the lobby to manage the check-out/check-in lines. Perfect experience. We will certainly stay there when in Amsterdam in the future.

First of all, I had the best time in Amsterdam with my closest friend. The room has two single that are pushed together to form a almost king size bed. Although that might be a problem for a couple, it was fine for us. The room was clean, comfortable, had a coffee maker. Our room overlooked the canal. I didn't... More

This is the best hotel in Amsterdam! Highly recommended for luxury, comfort, location and superior customer service! Experience of the lifetime, very competitive with Ritz and Four Seasons. Great location!

Spent one night in Amsterdam on a business trip, stayed at The Grand and is really a very good hotel. Room is ok in terms of size, clean comfortable, good bed, and quiet for a good sleep. Hotel is located literally in the middle of the red light district, what is fine for me, but depending on personal preferences, could... More

I sourced the Grand through an old friend, who had lived and worked in Amsterdam. We were treated royally from the moment that we arrived.I have to say that the concierge, his staff and right down the line, were the most professional and yet friendly and were the best that I have ever encountered in any hotel.The beds were exceptional.Even...

I am lucky enough to get sent to 4-star hotels worldwide a couple of times a year. This is fairly competitive with the Ritz or the Four Seasons, just a touch more subdued in presentation and in location. Sumptuous beds (my most important criteria) and quiet if you make your preference known. Also a delightful courtyard to go grab a... More

This is a luxury hotel, rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are great. We first booked a Superior room and then paid to upgrade to the Luxury room. Rooms are very pricey but the hotel is fabulous. We hired a car and the day we used it we found that the concierge staff had given us a small travel... More
