“Luxury stay in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

The Sofitel Legend, The Grand Amsterdam is a beautifull hotel in a fantastic location and offers great bars and a fantastic michelin star restuarant. All of which we sampled, along with the Spa and louges. We had a junior suite for my wife birthday weekend and we were not disappointed, the room was a good size and was decorated beautifully. The staff as always in the Netherlands were very friendly and welcoming. Concierge were invaluable and got us bookings at restuarants and clubs. secon time at sofitel hotel, it is one of the best hotel chains around right now.

This is a Fantastic hotel, from the moment you drive through the arch it begins, it is very well decorated, clean, staff are excellent, the food in Bridges restaurant is very good as it should be having just won a star (I believe). The location is fantastic no matter what you go to Amsterdam for!
The rooms are very good, mini bar is well stocked but quite expensive, Hermes toiletries are a nice touch! But for me the best thing about the hotels are the beds, oh my god they are so comfortable I did not want to get up in the morning!!! The meeting rooms are good as well. All in all a great experience! Well done Sofitel

Thank your for taking the time to share your experiences at The Grand.
Indeed, our restaurant Bridges, Inspired by Ron Blaauw, was recently awarded a Michelin star, which makes us all very proud !
This legendary location, once the canteen of the City Hall, is now a place where gourmands can enjoy the art of cooking by Executive Chef Joris Bijdendijk.

I hope that on your next visit to Amsterdam we will be able to welcome you back in The Grand AND in our restaurant Bridges, Inspired by Ron Blaauw.

It is a different experience in staying in The Grand Amsterdam. The location is very convenient, the staff very professional and the ambience is very relax and welcoming. We stay there anytime we go to Amsterdam since 1999 either for business or pleasure. The staff's personal touch complements our trips and we feel at home anytime we stay there. If you stay in a junior suite or a suite you are being looked after and pampered by a group of professional butlers such as Domingo, head of butler department. Highly recommended if you plan to stay there for a nice weekend. And if you stay there from June to September you will love to have your dinner in the Garden's Restaurant.

Room Tip: If you book a little bit early you can get a good deal. Luxury rooms and junior suites are good valu...

This might be a short review but I don't need many words to describe the Sofitel Amsterdam: the building is beautiful, the staff is very nice and friendly, the bar is excellent and the rooms are amazing. From a location perspective it's located centrally and you can reach all important destinations comfortable by feet. For me it's the best hotel in Amsterdam.
