Den Bosch, The Netherlands3 contributions
We had an unforgettable stay at The Grand with our kids. Everything had been thought of and nothing was too much. Our room was spacious and had a beautiful view over the canals. The friendliness of the skilled staff was striking. We felt extremely welcome, while in these difficult Corona times it is really an extra challenge to meet all expectations. The weather was favorable to us, so we were lucky enough to have lunch outside on the terrace in the sun. What a joy! It was also amazing how the extensive breakfast and our delicious dinner were brought to our room on time, neatly presented and at the right temperature by extremely friendly service. Thanks to the passionate tour, we gained more insight into the rich history of the beautiful building in which the hotel is located. And how nice that Amsterdam can be discovered within walking distance from the hotel. Our stay has flown by and we will definitely come back here. Finally, a tip, this hotel has a fantastic SPA, which we all enjoyed together.

As soon as corona lockdown was lifted, I booked the Sofitel Legend for a city break to Amsterdam... and had a fantastic couple of days there. Clearly the corona-related precautions were obvious from the outset: staff all in masks, keeping their distance respectfully, and hand sanitizers everywhere. But the hotel managed to introduce these and other measures in a way that felt very natural, not obtrusive, and did not diminish the feeling of luxury and relaxation of being there. I had a great, spacious suite overlooking the canal that I was very happy with. A wonderfully restful sleep was followed by a visit to the Spa for an incredible 2hour massage! And of course I spent many hours in the amazing garden terrace while I was there... thoroughly recommended.

It was a wonderful experience. We wanted a nice Easter dinner and a nice break from sitting at home. The Grand offered exactly that. The staff was very nice and professional. They gave us tour of the historic parts of the hotel building. And we got big room upgrade. The four course meal from Bridges was also amazing. As well as the grand breakfast. We also got a early check in and late check out. Lovely stay. Highly recommended.

Staying in the Grand is the most perfect place to be in Amsterdam. First of all the staff with the excellent service! All over the place friendly staffing, from reception, doormen, housekeeping, kitchen, restaurant and the managers we spoke! The guest is always the top priority, which is very good! We stayed in a lovely and very large room with a very nice view over the canals. The location of this hotel is so perfect, by foot you can go to all the lovely spots of Amsterdam. Of course in a normal period it is top, but now in this Covid period it is so good because all is in walking distance. The food we ordered in our room was perfect too, both evening as breakfast were fresh and several choices. Again, brought to the room with a smile! We are looking forward to our next stay here!
