This is probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in anywhere. I stayed at the Sofitel Legend from May 1-5 and loved every day there. I had a superior room overlooking the canal in the rear - the hotel sits in between two quiet canals, and the room was superb. Roomy, clean, very well appointed with a beautiful bathroom with...

This is a beautiful hotel very well located in the heart of Amsterdam. The amenities are superb including an outstanding breakfast. Everyone who works at this hotel is friendly and welcoming. We especially appreciated the outstanding concierge service, perhaps the best we have ever experienced anywhere. The concierge arranged for tickets to the Rijks Museum, the van Gogh Museum and...

If you are a fan of high tea, save your money and skip it here. The Sofitel website gives its high tea such rave reviews that I thought it would be divine ...

The Grand in Amsterdam is a lovely, somewhat pretentious hotel with huge rooms, lots of amenities, and one that provides a lovely oasis of calm in the midst of a hustle-bustle city. Once you enter the courtyard the sounds of the city are behind you and you can retreat to the quiet of your spacious room. With high ceilings, a... More

My week-long stay here was great from start to finish. The hotel is quiet and old-fashioned on the outside, but has every modern convenience, is beautifully furnished, and is centrally located. I really appreciated the opportunity to swim in the pool and use the spa, especially after a hard day of sight-seeing. Finally, the concierge service was amazing. This was... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for 3 nights- 2 before a trip to Africa and 1 on the return. One would be hard pressed to find a hotel with a nicer, more accomodating staff than that of the Sofitel. First, they were willing to store our extra luggage for almost 2 weeks while we went on safari. Second, we had... More
