My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Grand Hotel Amrath, Amsterdam - it is great and we both really enjoyed staying there.
The hotel is fantastic, the staff are very helpful, the rooms are clean and spacious and the location is superb. It is very unusual for me to be so complimentary about a hotel as I usually find something to complain about......... but on this occasion I couldn't! I am still in shock that the mini bar in the hotel room is re-filled every day - free of charge!
The location is superb it is easy to access the main sites and attractions and the hotel is only 7-10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Train station - get the train from the airport its really easy and the taxi's are very expensive; 45 euro by taxi each way 8 euro return train ticket (per person)..
Don't be put off by the outside of the hotel building, when you first arrive I was a bit worried as it is rather gothic looking from the outside but inside it is really really nice.
Only thing to be aware of - it is a 5* and you do pay 5* prices in the hotel bar, but then my husband and I found eating and drinking in Amsterdam expensive.
If you want a good meal while you are there I can certainly reccommend the Me Naam Naam Thai resturant and the Aneka Rasa Indonesian resturant - both serve excellent food and drink the service is fantastic!
