“As much correct as impersonal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

A squared block from the outside, squared personnel inside. To no surprise since this is quite common in this country.Good beds, good rooms, often too hot in winter, correct breakfast, limited choice on dinner. Everything essential for a business hotel. What else can you expect in the middle of an industrial area. At lest the bus to downtown Amsterdam has a stop just across the street.

Stayed in a tripple room for one night. Bus service into Amsterdam city takes a while but runs often. Room towards the street makes it hard to sleep with open window (car noise the whole night). Breakfast just medium. A bit more selection of everything would help. But all in all a good stay.

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.

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel that we used as a base for visiting Amsterdam. We wanted to be away from the very busy and outrageously expensive hotels of the city center. We opted for this hotel that very well deserves its 4 stars. The rooms are very large with possibility to get ones that are connected. The bedding was outstanding with very good quality linen. The rooms are very well equipped with large flat screens, safe and mini bar where you can cool down drinks. The rooms were very clean and with very nice decoration. Soundproofing may be improved in connected rooms but this is not a major issue. The breakfast offering is very good with a choice of cold and hot dishes. There is also a nice offering of different bread and viennoiseries.
The hotel offers very good, complete and new installations such as well equipped fitness room. The close area of the hotel allows you to have lunch in a very good restaurant (in addition to the restaurant and the bar within the hotel) + to play a bowling (with eating and drinking offering) without moving your car from the parking area. All are under the same management umbrella and hence all booking can be done via the hotel’s reception desk. There is a vending machine with a large offer of soft and alcoholic drinks if the bar is closed. There is also a free distribution of cold water and ice.
The personnel is really helpful and can advise in a lot of domains such as tourism, cycling routes, public transpiration offer and prices … The hotel front may be surprising at very first view … but once inside the hotel and welcomed by the reception desk people, you’ll have no more doubts that you are in a 4 stars hotel.
Only disappointment was that the wifi requires an extra cost that despite the low amount (5 Euros) should be free in a hotel of this level. However, the Wifi is available at the salon next to the reception desk.
Of course, you need ton consider that the hotel is at +/- 30 to 40 minutes distance from Amsterdam center when using the public transport. However this is still competitive when knowing the price for parking in this beautiful city and taking the traffic into consideration. We will use this hotel again without any doubt.

Room Tip: Just consider the distance if you intend to staty for a visit to Amsterdam. Still worth it consider...

Stayed here on business last week.

Plus points:
The staff are very friendly and helpful, they make up for most of the short comings.
Rooms are large and clean, as is the hotel.
Shuttle bus to take you to/from local offices
The sister restaurant, Tgerecht, is very good and we ate there several times.
Wifi included in room rate.

Negatives:
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere so best if you have a car if you want to visit anything, although you can take a bus from over the road into Amsterdam.
Breakfast wasn't anything special and a little spartan.
Soundproofing isn't great, especially if you have an adjoining room

Overall it's good enough for a business hotel, you probably won't spend too long there as you'll be in the office or out for dinner.

Pros:
- room was spacey, especially bathroom designed for simultaneous use of 2 persons.
- separated closet
- quiet area around the hotel
- really friendly staff (they allowed me to check out at 14.00)
Cons:
- 3.45euro (if you are using ov-chipcard) and 50min one way from CS on metro 51, including 10 min walk from the hotel to the metro station
- if you go to Spinnerij metro station (closest one) first 300 meters does not have organized pedestrian side.
- 5.00euro for day of internet access


Controversial:
- breakfast is served separately for corporate clients at the sunny part of the restaurant while the rest of visitors should share smaller and darker part of it, close to the kitchen.

Nice place to stay in Amsterdam. Excellent service, parking lot just round the corner,sufficiently quiet place! Big rooms with veeeery big bathroms! Staff very helpful & girls, who serve breakfast, look like models). Only 25 minutes to the Amsterdam's downtown(straight bus to the Museum Square) and one and half hour to the Sea. Next time in Amsterdam I will stay there without doubt. I recommend this nice hotel!
