I’ve booked this hotel and planned on proposing to my girlfriend during our stay. I contacted the hotel a few days in advance to let them know about my plans. Filippo from the Guest Relations reached out to me and helped me plan everything, from getting roses and rose paddles to peeping the room while we’re out discovering the city. It was a huge success! I can highly recommend this Hotel to anyone. The staff is incredible nice and helpful, the Suits are spacious and nicely decorated. We will be back for sure!

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.

We are regular guests in Amsterdam and since a few years we always stay in the Grand. In our view, the best hotel in Amsterdam and one of the best in the world. Great rooms and upgrades, fantastic beds, great breakfast and superb service by all staff. Especially Niels and his concierge service are world class. The Flying Dutchman bar by Denis is always a true pleasure to be in, so is the beautiful tranquil garden and restaurant Bridges. Also, the spa and swimming pool, albeit not big, are great. Finally, its location is superb: centrally in the „hustle and bustle“ of Amsterdam and walking distance to all major sights, activities and museums.

We had a six-night stay in this beautiful hotel located in the historic centre of Amsterdam, and received the very best service from the highly-committed team there, many of whom have been at the hotel for many years and clearly care deeply about it. This truly is the best hotel in Amsterdam. After such a good experience, I would normally want to name and thank the brilliant and caring individual people who looked after us, and I will separately write directly to the hotel to do this. But at this current time, it seems more important to stress how very well the hotel has reacted to the coronavirus crisis. The hygiene and social-distancing regimes that have been put in place are excellent and were scrupulously observed by all members of staff. I can genuinely say that during my stay I felt completely safe, and would urge anyone concerned about visiting a hotel at this time to put their misgivings aside and visit The Grand. This level of safety has been achieved without diminishing in any way the luxury feel of the hotel. For example, guests can now book a slot in the hotel's famous spa for their sole use, before and after which it is completely deep-cleaned by a team of cleaners. The social-distancing regime, though observed completely by all staff, did not prevent everyone being welcoming, warm and helpful at all times. We enjoyed a marvellous and much-needed holiday, and I would urge anyone who has some worries about having a holiday or business trip during these corona times to stay at this hotel.

We have stayed for one night at The Grand Hotel in Amsterdam. It was amazing! Very friendly personell and check-in went quickly. The room was very spacious and especially the bed was wonderful. I normally do not sleep well in hotels, but this one was perfect. The hotel is situated in a historic building and you can get a tour of the building and its history. It is also very nice to know that the Hotel takes COVID19 very seriously and has taken all kind of measures to ensure our comfort and safety. For us, this was very important.
