“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We arrived early at 9:30am after a grueling 16 hours trip. Receptionist allowed us to check in right the way so we could get much needed rest. Service from all staff was incredible. Free mini-bar was definitely a big bonus, refilled daily with soft drinks, juices, water, wine, various liquor, bag of peanut and chocolate bar. Expresso machine for free coffee and tea. Location is quiet and central, minutes walk to train station and Dam Square. Free WiFi in room. Did not have time to check out the Spa which has a swimming pool and sauna. Will definitely return for future trips.

Room Tip: My single room in the basement was much bigger than the single room that my friend stayed in upstair...

wi-fi very efficient...we had a room where the toilet was separate from the shower/sink--which we grew to love! fantastic, easy location...lovely staff...grab a water bottle & apple every morning in the lobby on your way out to face the day. lucky to have a view of the canal, but also lucky to have the best black-out curtains ever (for the jet-lagged among us)...and beds that were so comfortable it was ridiculous.

Room Tip: ask for one on the canal!

Stayed as a couple late 2012. Loved this hotel. Like a grand old lady from the past, the moment we stepped into the foyer it felt like we had stepped back in time but in a nice way, absolutely beautiful and full of character.

Service was excellent and friendly. Location perfect, comfortable walking distance to Central station, red light district and main shopping areas. Bus stop for the hop-on hop-off bus just outside the front door.

We had a deluxe room facing the road but the noise was minimal, the windows must be insulated. Room was enormous with very high ceilings making it feel even more spacious. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable we'd ever had in any hotel. The FREE mini bar and expresso machine were replenished daily and the free wifi was very good speed. The breakfast was also very good.

Highly recommend this hotel and would stay again, perhaps asking for a higher floor with a canal view for a different experience.

We stayed for 3 nights in early March and loved the place. Minor gripes only. When we arrived at midday we were surprised that our room was ready, which was a good start, so we dumped the bags. The concierge helped us find local amenities and attractions, and sorted everything on a map for us. We also got helped with bags, which was a complaint of someone else on here that they didn't.
The free mini bar is a boon, taking drinks with us for the day out.
WiFi in the room helped enormously finding attractions, opening times etc.
The bathroom was good, and the bath lovely and deep. Minor gripe here was the shower screen was woefully inadequate and pee'd water all over the place, no matter how well you positioned the screen of shower head. But there were plenty of towels to mop everything up! The toiletries you get are excellent too, and well replenished every day. We asked for a quiet room, and it certainly was. Too warm too - which is not a complaint as opening a window isn't exactly difficult! Nice views towards a canal, but not directly over one, which was fine.
Breakfast was excellent, but would prove a bit pricey had it not been included in the room rate. However the quality of the breakfast was stunning and so varied. Even Prosecco available to make a buck's fizz!
The spa facilities are excellent in the basement. The pool with its swim-against-jet, and the very hot sauna. The steam room wasn't very steamy, but there was a kid in and out all the time, so it didn't really have a chance! Great facility - very clean and serviceable. Great showers available. Hot tub nice and hot too.
Superbly located near to the station and the RLD, so nothing is more than a half hour walk at all, even to the Jordaan. We would recommend this place again, and if the deal was right, would stay again too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road (Prins Henrikkade).

We travelled to Holland last summer with our 2 young children in tow. While in Amsterdam stayed at the Grand Hotel Amrath. The rooms were large, clean, comfortable and well provisioned. The staff was courteous and helpful. The hotel is centrally located. The quality of food at their resteraunt was excellent. We would certainly recommend a stay at this hotel while in Amsterdam.

I spent 3 nights with my wife in this hotel recently. The hotel is centrally located, 5 minute walk from the central station and amenities are on the high-end. Breakfast is excellent and WI-FI very efficient (although it took them more than 12 hours to repair it after a failure). When we entered our room (#212) for the first time, we were welcomed by a bad sewage odor coming out from the bathroom. We reported the problem to the front desk and when we returned to our room, the bad odor was overridden by a strong deodorant fragrance. However, it was a bad and temporary solution. Not something you expect from a 5-star hotel.

Room Tip: Beware of room 212
