This hotel exceeds the beauty of the canals of Amsterdam and its own historical building with its superb staff.
We have traveled extensively throughout the world staying in many 5 star hotels, and have had the "butler" experience before: the guy who shows up in tails to shake your hand who you rarely see again. This hotel's butler service is honestly a butler service. We had as our butlers Bart and Luis. They were extremely helpful in terms of sharing their knowledge of the city, making reservations, assuring that your room was to your satistaction, noting your individual likes and dislikes, even down to personally delivering your room service order, inquiring if your would like them to pack or unpack your bags, etc. Bottom line, their service was so exquisite, you hated to leave the hotel.
The hotel itself is beautifully appointed and very conveniently located. They are right on one of the canals. Walk in one direction and you have great pubs or cafes as they called them. Walk in the other and you get a first hand look at the red light district.
Their breakfast is not to be missed and do not leave without eating their waffles. These are not your normal fabulous waffle. These are small pieces of indescribable heaven on your plate.
We were on day one of our stay and already planning when we could return. You will feel at home and welcome in the beauty that is the Sofitel The Grand Amsterdam.
