“A GREAT FIND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had planned this trip to Amsterdam rather last minute and to be honest, booked this hotel because it offered the best price for a 5* hotel only 3 days prior to traveling. The reviews we read were somewhat mixed, but this hotel turned out to be a gem that I would return to without hesitation! We arrived at the hotel from Schiphol airport quite early in the morning and were advised that they might not be able to offer us a room until the afternoon, so we checked our bags in with the bellman and went out for some breakfast. Upon returning to the hotel only about 2 hours later (1000) to inquire on the status of an available room, we were told that our room was ready!

The hotel itself is of fantastic "art deco" design and was formerly used as a cargo/shipping center. The hotel, through it's renovation was able to keep much of the charm and many of the unique features from it's past. Upon entering the room, I noticed the high ceilings and comfortable design, very inviting! The bathroom was well appointed and had a luxurious feel. The only downside to the bathroom was that the door was glass, with only the middle section of glass frosted so a view from the room wasn't possible. The bathroom situation is not conducive for families, at least not in the king room. On the upside, the minibar in all of the rooms in this hotel is free of charge, INCLUDING wine/beer and spirits and is replenished once daily! I've never stayed at a hotel where this service is offered free of charge and found this to be a pleasant surprise!

The hotel also offers a very nice fitness/pool and spa area with whirlpool tub and a saline pool which proved to be a relaxing oasis after a day of walking and touring around!

Aside from the hotel itself, the location was fantastic, offering access to the central train station with only a 5 minute walk or so.

All in all, this hotel turned out to be a great find! Value for the money spent was great and the location, amenities and service made the entire package worthwhile!

Just back from a 3 night stay. Lovely rooms although we have to be moved as we had booked a twin room and were given a double. Both rooms were spacious and quiet. Free mini bar and the Nespresso machine were a bonus. We had the French breakfast in the bar which was huge and kept us going all day!. The spa was fab, not huge but it was never very busy and a pleasure to use. The only downsides were the wait to check in/out there always seemed to be a queue there and there is no relaxing lounge with sofa's and arm chairs or at least we never found one. Make sure you go up to the 3rd floor and check out the windows.

Room Tip: 2nd & 3rd floor rooms are very quiet.

Have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed.Former commercial property turned hotel which overlooks a former dock an the new Library it offers the visitor comfort and good service.Like to have a room on the upper floors and this was provided with a good view looking out from the city.Cuisine is good here but one has a lot of good quality restaurants nearby.Excellent choice for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are recommended for the vistas they offer

If you're tired of carbon copy hotels where you feel you could be anywhere in the world try the Grand Hotel Amrath in Amsterdam. We had a double room with a high ceiling on 2 levels that had a complimentary mini bar. For once I didn't feel like I was staying in a sauna and the maze of corridors only added to the charm of the stay. It's just a few metres from the station and breakfast is well worth a try at least once during your stay.

Me and my lass stayed at the amrath recently and I can totally recommend this hotel. Breakfast was very good, staff very polite and friendly, rooms clean and luxurious, location is very good, bed comfy, sturdy and quiet!
The complimentary mini bar is a very good idea as I'm often amazed at the cost of drinks in hotels. I think it would be a good idea for the majority of hotels to follow this. I imagine the cost of this service is recouped in repeat business.
We will definitely be going back to Amsterdam and we will definitely be staying here when we do

Just completed an 8-night stay at the Amrath during a very busy trade fair, IBC. Had a group of 6 to look after and staff were beyond great. The concierges were all friendly and helpful and when my many boxes got lost, they helped me get them out of Amsterdam customs.

The breakfast was fantastic and the gal Cristen who runs the shipping department deserves a promotion! I had to leave in a big hurry and she actually packed up my boxes had them sent to me. this hotel's service is the best I have come across in a very long time. Our group used to stay at the Grand Sofitel but left last year when it turned into "just another chain". the Amrath is a really cool hotel with free wifi and free mini-bar. I give it 6 plus stars, the staff there really rocks!

My only wish was that the gym was a little better, as the weight room was spare and the equipment a little tired, but all the walking in Amsterdam, you don't really need a good gym.
