Majestic and well appointed hotel, strategic position in the centre of Amsterdam. Friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately, the bed in the room was so soft and feathered that it sank and therefore did not allow a pleasant rest ... It gave me back pain. Such an uncomfortable bed frustrates everything else. Tasteless breakfast, not adequate for a 5 star. A real shame...

This hotel embodies the level of quality of a five star hotel! From the moment we showed up till the time we left, we were treated fabulously! The staff are the best! Smiles and conversation no matter what time of day or how many times you walk by. Our bags were delivered and we were escorted to our room. The breakfast was amazing every morning. We had an issue with our dinner but the staff were eager to rectify the problem. We were so impressed with how we were treated there. Do not pass up an opportunity to stay here. You will not be disappointed.

The location was terrific, right in the center of the city. The building was just that - grand! The rooms were great - very comfortable pillows, high quality comforter and towels. Staff were also exceptionally friendly and service-oriented, with great English skills, from reception, to housekeeping to breakfast servers. The maitre'd was fantastically friendly and bubbly and remembered who was who. They seemed short of staff for breakfast but that didn't prevent them from providing exceptional attention. The breakfast was exceptional - they had a menu from where every guest could order custom items and you could see the chefs present the food in artistic ways. In addition, they had all the usual food selection - cold cuts, breads, spreads, veggies, fruits, etc. Coffee was delivered in special silver pots; they brought you juices and water as well. Reception staff were equally very helpful and accommodating. I will book here again the next time!

As a hotelier myself, I am probably more picky than the average guest and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel. We stayed in a Superior room which had a lovely canal view, perfectly appointed with full-size Balmain bath products, fluffy robes, and comfortable beds with crisp white linens. The location is absolutely where you want to be especially as a first-time visitor. Emmy Stoel who is the general manager at this hotel deserves high praise for leading a team who delivers impeccable, professional, and friendly service, from the doormen to the front desk to the restaurant servers. Thanks to all of you for making our stay perfect in every way.

We stayed at this lovely hotel for the second time. Our experience was just as wonderful on this visit. The hotel is beautiful and within walking distance of museums and the Central Train Station. The staff is superb. They are very friendly and accommodating! We required significant assistance in scheduling Covid tests and translating and printing the results; the staff was so helpful.

This is an exceptional luxury hotel. My father and I stayed 4 nights as a base for the Dutch Grand Prix and could not have been more impressed. The hotel building itself is beautiful and oozes history and class. The staff were all complete professionals who made our stay an absolute delight.

What an amazing hotel. The experience started when we arrived and had valley parking in front of the hotel, followed by lovely front desk staff who where very kind. They gave us an upgrade and late check out due to our wedding day, which made the already special day even more special. The next day we had breakfast which was one of the best hotel breakfast I’ve had (and I’ve seen a lot of nice hotels). Finished up in the Spa which was nice, clean and quiet. Definitely coming back any time soon.
