“The Grand Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Stayed at this hotel a few times now. Stunning, clean, grand hotel. Front of hotel overlooks Dam Square and the Royal Palce. There is also a back route on to the Red Light District (The quieter end of the RLD)

It is one of the more expensive hotels in Central Amsterdam, but well worth the money. Book well in advance to get good deals.

Fantastic location!

After a previous stay at the Krasnapolsky, I was not going to return, but I decided to give it another go and I am glad I did. On this visit it was very hard to fault the hotel form the check in to the rooms to the concierge to checking out were all excellent. My only issue was with the chef on the Monday morning at breakfast, whom I believe could have been a little friendlier towards the customers, but the dining room staff were brilliant. My overall experience of my return visit was 100% better and I will return to the Krasnapolsky for IBC 2014 if I am to travel.

I stayed at Krasnapolsky for 3 days, due to business activities. The place is one of the best hotels I ever been to, quiet, clean, very rich breakfast and in the middle of Amsterdam Center. I really enjoyed breakfasts, because you have a cook (or two) ready to serve you in the best way. The breakfast salon is huge, liberty stilish and I felt very good.
I can't say anything about the price, since my company paid for me.

I came to Amsterdam on a last minute 5day trip with work and the Krasnapolsky was my hotel of choice, I absolutely loved it!! the Staff were absolutely brilliant and couldnt be any more helpful. It's in an ideal location and close to all the shops and amenities.

I loved my stay in Amsterdam, and the hotel really made the stay worthwhile for me, would DEF recommend !

Hotel location is great, you can walk to almost every attraction. The night life next to the hotel is great. There are many restaurants near by to enjoy. But the internet at the hotel is just horrible!!

This was our first trip to the Netherlands, and we were pleasantly surprised by the people of Amsterdam. They're gracious, polite and helpful. Thank goodness we took the advice of our friends who recommended the Krasnapolsky, it was a fabulous experience. The hotel was bright, clean and updated. The staff was awesome. They saw to our every need with courtesy and professionalism. Love it!
