We were having difficulty finding a place to stay in Amsterdam on the dates we wanted so ended up booking with a "secret hot wire rate" with Hotwire. When we found out we were booked into the Grand Krasnapolsky I went to trip advisor, and started to worry after reading some of the terrible reviews. I was also very concerned that the manager never seemed to respond to any of the reviews, something I always like to see. In any event we showed up at the hotel at 10:00 am after a short walk from Centraal station, intending just to store our bags there until check in time. Despite the lobby being quite busy we were seen to quite quickly and found out that a room was ready for us. Having seen the advice on here to ask for a recently renovated room, I asked and was told none were ready yet but we could have one by the regular check in time which we chose to do. The concierge desk also took care of storing our bags for the day. We arrived back at the hotel by 2:00 (an hour before check in time) and were told our room was ready. We had room 3085 which was very nice and even had a bit of a view over the rooftops. The renovated rooms are very modern and white, while there is a touch of "2001 a space odyssey" about them I really liked the design and found it quite an effective and practical design for a hotel room. The bed was king size, and had a continuous mattress, not the two singles pushed together you often get in Holland. It was a bit firm for my taste but I still had three good nights sleep on it. The room was relatively quiet, there was occasionally some street noise but not enough to disturb our sleep. We did not eat in the hotel but the concierge booked two other places for us we had read about. Check out was no problem, all and all I was quite happy with the place.
