Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on business in July 2014. A fast 20 minute taxi drive from local Schiphol airport (25euros) helps you get a good introduction to the local area of cycle lanes, narrow cobbled streets, shops, bridges and the famous canals - utterly unique. The Grand is nestled in a quiet area by a canal and... More

We stayed for 3 nights on a city break. Location very central and 5 minutes from Dam square. We ate in the Michelin restaurant where the food was ok but not brilliant; the waiters were very theatrical in their descriptions of the food that was more presentation than flavour.

The Grand is probably, overall, the best hotel in Amsterdam. But it's frustrating to see that perfection is within reach and the management fails to achieve it. For one thing, the hotel locks the entrance at midnight, requiring guests to identify themselves over an intercom to gain entry. This is unnecessary. Have passkey entry or post a security officer. Simply... More

After having a bad experience at the Pulitzer, we checked into the Grand. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. The canal suites are spacious, luxurious and comfortable. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and a pleasure to talk with. The hotel is centrally located with great views. Very clean, modern: classy and charming. Amazing place!
