Grand Hotel Downtown
Ranked #126 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed October 3, 2012

My overall experience in this hotel I have to say that it was a good experience (I have stayed in a double room).
Positive points:
- location - at +/- 50 metres there is an GVB stop (public transportation with connections to all the good places to visit - i recommend the purchase of a daily pass to walk freely through the city)
- quiet place - the surroundings are quiet
- neerby some good coffee shops - if you don't choose to take the breakfast in the hotel, you will find in this street some places were you can eat some good chocolate croissant and more lovely things
- free mini bar - with a coca-cola, a fanta, two orange juices and two snacks (i don't known if this is restocked during the stay or if it's an once time only as I haven't tried)
- bathroom with hot floor

Negative points:
- in our room we could ear some things that was passing in the next room
- there was no tv in the room - maybe because it was a very recent hotel
- the space in the room - although it's enough as you probably won't spend to much time in the room and the bed it's quite good, for long stays you could have little space to put your luggage
- space in the shower - it could be a little larger, although it's enough to take a shower

Very good location, beautiful new building, quiet place, with tram stations, restaurants, cafes, Vondelpark, and museums at walking distance. The staff was kind and helpful but seemed embarrassed as the hotel was not ready at all. As it has just started, in the coming weeks the services and amenities will surely be improved. The day we checked out there already was internet signal in our room! The little restaurant will be lovely when ready. Free mini bar was also nice as also tea bags and water boiler in the room.
On arrival we were told we should have received an e-mail offering a 15% discount because the TV was missing. The double room offered was really tiny, without windows. It was on the ground floor, at the corner of the building and had two glass walls, through which, despite the film on them, we could be seen from the outside if we leave the curtains opened. There was no luggage rack or place to put the luggage, not even inside the wardrobe otherwise we couldn‘t open the room door. Three hangers only, no telephone or internet. Definitely the room was not ready to receive guests. As we were supposed to stay for 8 nights we told the staff we decided to look for another hotel. They then offered us an upgrade to stay in a comfortable penthouse, which was also not ready, but the size and roof top view were really nice. Not having bath tub is OK, but I missed a handheld shower bidet. Free minibar (a bottle of water, one can of coke and one of Fanta, two sweets) was nice and never replenished though. Coffee machine and better quality toiletries (shampoo, hair conditioning, soap, and moisturizing lotion) would improve the in-room amenities

Room Tip: Better not choose a room with translucid glass walls on the ground floor.
