“Stunningly beautiful nautical-themed nouveau hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

I lucked out and got an excellent price on a Superior room at Grand Hotel Amrath and am so glad I decided to stay there. I happen to love art nouveau design and this is one of the most beautiful nouveau buildings I've ever seen. As a former shipping house, it is full of amazing nautical-themed art nouveau stained glass and sculpture. Every detail of the place is amazing. The rooms, further, are spacious, with at least 20 foot ceilings, enormous windows, and fresh, modern bathrooms. The cherry on top is the free minibar and nespresso coffee maker. This hotel made me wish I had a week in Amsterdam rather than just a day. My only complaint is that breakfast (which looked somewhat meager) is not included. But that's a small price to pay for such stunning surrounds. Yes, the combo of the carpet and wallpaper was a little jarring, but the place is a 15 - 20 minute walk from almost all major tourist sights, so that's a small price to pay. Can't wait to go back as soon as I have the chance.

Visiting this hotel is worth it for the sake of the building alone: beautiful!! I didn't get a room with a view to the canals as I had asked (the hotel was full and this wasn't possible), however the room I got was gigantic and with all the comfort one would expect. The free minibar was a nice detail. This is an elegant, stylish place full of history, close to the Central Station, and you can walk everywhere. I didn't have time for the spa, which is supposed to be very good. Next time.

Very good location close to central station and to the centre of Amsterdam. The free mini bar which is stocked daily is a really nice addition. The only downside we found was the rooms were very warm, we tried having the thermostat on as low as possible but still too warm. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Excellent hotel at walking distance from everything-5 minutes from the Central station,10 minutes from the shopping streets and department stores,15 minutes from a very nice zoo,30 minutes from the museum quarter,5 minutes from the red light district,etc.
The hotel is located in a historic landmark building dating back to the 1913 but the equipment is modern including here coffee machines, lcd tv, WiFi.The rooms are equipped with large safety boxes,you can easily put a big laptop inside.
There's a well equipped wellness center with a swimming pool and a jacuzzi.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.
The staff is very friendly.
Negative moments-the shower cabin is open,so after taking a shower the floor of the bathroom is all covered with water.And -but this is probably my personal problem-the bed mattress is too soft.But this is a matter of taste ...and personal health.

Room Tip: rooms with canal view

A unique art deco style hotel which was earlier a shipping house. Room was very spacious overlooking a beautiful canal with large windows that could be opened. A free minibar with a great selection of drinks which was re-stocked daily. Just a few minutes walk away from the action of central Amsterdam but in a quiet and peaceful area. Also just a short walk to Centraal Station. Would definitely stay again!

Came to Amsterdam for a long weekend Fri-Mon, spent 3 nights at the Amrath which was really
worth the money. Staff were very nice and helpful. The facilities in the room were excellent and there was a small gym. There wasn't much equipment and it was a bit old but did the job for me and my partner. Had a lovely lunch in the restaurant on Sunday and again the staff were very good. It has lovely ornate decoration in foyer and rooms with a superb main staircase (check out the skylight on top floor). Had a lovely stay in Amsterdam and the hotel really helped - lovely!! Very close to train station and other attractions. Many thanks to all of the staff

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd floor were lovely and quiet. could also view the fantastic skylight on the main stairca...

We stayed for two nights in a deluxe room wich was very spacious and nice. The free minibar is a nice touch that you don't get many other places. The close proximity to the central station is a definate plus. A five minute walk, an the hotel is easy to spot with its grand architecture.

The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of towels. Plus also for the spa and the breakfast buffet.
