Grand Hotel Amstelveen

Reviewed February 3, 2014

I've spent there 2 weeks for business purpose (in 2010), and it was quite good, but there were some things that made it just an average hotel for me. Amstelveen is quite far from Amsterdam, and it was a lot of time to get into the city. Taxi is expensive and there are allways traffic jams in the morning and evening. Metro is far and slow. The hotel is really good, I got the biggest room I've ever been in. There was even a huge terrace for the room. The hotel is well equipped with everything, but only the breakfast was served in the main buillding. The restaurant and all was outside, about 5 mins of walk from there. The area is very calm, which is a good possibility for a running. (I did it and really liked.)

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the corridors has a big terrace. Running to the Amstel river is a good sports a...

I just stayed in this hotel for business purpose close to the Amstelveen office zone. I expected some basic and standard service from a 4 stars hotel : good Internet connection, nice english breakfast (usual well served in The Netherlands), good classic restaurant or room service - in a few words, nothing special considering a 4 stars hotel.
Results :
1. terrible Internet connection : most likely a single poor ADSL shared by all guests, I was even not able to download some PDF.
2. Breakfast : less than basic, forget the beans and sausages, avoid the overburned eggs and the non-fresh orange juice.... and not before 7.15 during business days ! Not even a toaster is available.
3. Dinner : No restaurant inside and no room service : the nearest restaurant close to the hotel (200m) is the TgeregT which is very expensive for microwave cooking meals.
I don't know who delivers this hotel ranking and based on which criteria but definitively the Grand Hotel Amstelveen is just a small 3 stars hotel compared to other hotels in the surroundings.

Last but not least, there was a very large wet sport on the carpet's room near the heater... and it was even not possible to swap for another room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backyard.

We stayed in this hotel as it was within walking distance of family who live in Amstelveen. Friendly staff, big clean rooms but dated. Tea and coffee making faciliies but with paper cups and no milk. Plastic glasses in bathrooms. Beds comfortable. On noisy road. Very little within walking distance. No restaurant on site although one around the corner. Vending machine available for snacks, crisps etc. No room service. Breakfast OK only, nothing special. Unable to get anything on our last day as we had to leave at 07.20 and not serving. Would not even allow coffee/toast.
Would not recommend for a visit to Amsterdam as is too far out, about 45 mins on train Better choices for tourists closer in. OK for business travellers in area.

This is a seriously posh hotel, very large bedrooms with separate bathroom - shower and toilet. Hotel has nice little bar and gymnasium. Bad bits no evening dinners and hotel is not on outskirts of a town so completely on its own. Their is a separate restaurant on the site bit pricey but nice food, if going to dine get hotel to book table. Really excellent bus x 2 service to Central Station Amsterdam about every 15 mins ask at reception for print out of timetable. Bus stand has a digital readout of bus times and times down as buses get closer. The system must use GSP and is really accurate. Cost 4 euros to central Amsterdam, poss return tickets are available? All in all really worth a look if visiting Amsterdam.

Nice hotel with good price-value balance. Friendly staff. Rooms are spacious. Breakfast buffet is good. Hotel close to the airport means alos noise of airplanes flying on and off. Car parking is not secured. WIFI available. Small but cosy bar with possibility to eat a small meal. Nice restaurant with quality food in the backyard at walking distance of 150 m.

Stayed here with a large group on a recent congress. The staff really do make this place. It is a bit out the back and beyond but compared to staying in the centre the rooms are huge! Separate toilet, shower, bath, etc. cleaned well on a daily basis without fail. The restaurant only serves breakfast but next door is a lovely restaurant, tennis club and bowling alley. Good transport links. Breakfast had many options.. Not so sure myself on the pre prepared omelettes but they will do fresh food if you ask.

Good business hotel that is very convenient to the nearby business locations. The staff is a real delight and more then made up for the well worn room. Great service all around.

Many excellent food options nearby, including a short walk into a quaint city center. Would recommend avoiding the famous Aan De Poel and they are very rude.
