Stayed at Grand Amrath, Amsterdam for a long weekend in mid-July. Very well placed for finding the hot tourist spots. Let me just say at outset - the negative reviews for this hotel are misplaced. It's a wonderful old building with lots of original features from it's shipping house days (including the ticket office on 2nd floor) so if you are used to/expect modern/contemporary then it's not for you. Truly beautiful. We stayed in a superior deluxe room (upgraded from basic at €30 per night and well worth it) which was HUGE with electronically controlled curtains and a canal view. Separate WC and the shower cubicle was big and very, very clean. Robes were provided as was free minibar and free wifi which was a huge plus. Staff were very friendly and helpful, bar stocked an excellent Chablis Premier Cru and the one night we ate there the food was very, very good. Restaurant wasn't open although we couldn't quite understand why and we only had breakfast once (American buffet) but thought the €25 rate was good value as you could quite happily have eaten for a couple of hours. Spent a couple of hours on our last morning in the spa. Pool area extremely clean - had 3 sauna cabins and a steam room. Would have liked to have sampled a treatment but didn't think ahead! Overall would recommend this hotel and we would definitely return.
