I stayed at the Grand for a business trip and while it is located quite a way from Amsterdam it was functional and clean. Close to Schipol I decided to take the bus to the hotel. This was a 35 minute trip but the bus stop is right out the front of the Hotel. This is the same route that will take you straight into Amsterdam about 40 minutes trip. So it's very convenient if you don't want to spend your time in cabs.
The hotel itself while dated (think circa 1979), is clean and the staff very friendly. The restaurant is around the corner from the Hotel so it can be a dash if raining but the food was great and once again the service staff very good. One of the advantages in staying in a family owned hotel is that they will pay more attention to their guests. The rooms are simple but large, clean and comfortable and it certainly passed my litmus test for hot water and water pressure. Breakfast is a no frills affair with a choice of cereal, fruit, breads and cheese (of course it is Holland after-all). While not a hotel I would stay in if I needed to be closer to Amsterdam (our office is a quick walk away hence the stay there) I would thoroughly recommend it for those who want to be a bit out of the city and are not fussed about the luxury Hotel experience. Overall I enjoyed the 3 nights I stayed there but I 3 nights was enough.
Reasonably priced, and with the bus so close by there are no impediments to getting into the city. A friendly staff and atmosphere the Grand Hotel Amstelveen should at least be considered.
