Not much to complain about here, the location is second to none in my opinion. The staff were helpful and accommodating. Our room was a little tight, but probably standard by European size. The only downer was the food & beverage. You can see my T/A post on Bridges. There is too many awesome places to eat in Amsterdam, so... More

We were made very welcome from the moment we walked in, we had a lovely room overlooking the canal, very comfortable and quiet, especially when it was only a few mins walk from Dam square or Spui tramstop. Throughout our stay the staff always had a few words with us in a friendly manner. We also enjoyed the short tour... More

We have visited the Grand several times and have enjoyed each visit. I have mentioned before the many positive features that the hotel provides, so the only one I will reiterate is that the hotel's beds are the only ones where, from the first night, I sleep as comfortably as when I am at home. My experience is that without... More

Possibly the best hotel in Amsterdam and a large celebrity following, this hotel is superbly located on the edge of the Red Light district with some rooms situated on the canal. Not a cheap place to stay but faultless service from reception, to concierge (who personally escorted us to our canal cruise), housekeeping etc. Superb breakfast - hotel really feels... More

We enjoyed a two night return visit to The Grand. Its location just S of the edgy Red Light District may be too central for some but we found it a quiet and elegant oasis with 'atmosphere'. The main railway station is c. 1 km away (note that for the fit it can at peak times be faster to walk... More

Had a great weekend in Amsterdam, the hotel staff were on hand at all times to meet any request. The biggest disappointment was the food. We had several meals over the course of our stay but the food did not live up to expectation and was extremely overpriced.

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. The location, staff, and rooms were outstanding. We enjoyed everything about our stay. Loved that everything we wanted to do or see was within easy walling distance. We will return to this property.

A lovely hotel in a very strategic area near Dam Square and handy for all the tourist attractions. There are very professional staff and the whole hotel looks upmarket and stylish. We had a canal facing room for my wife's birthday and they sent up some macaroons and biscuits which were very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable and the... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. We were given a free upgrade to a suite, however we did have to wait a number of hours for this to be available. This was to be the only downside of the stay. The wait was worth it and the room was lovely. It was also kept very clean and well... More
