“Lovely hotel in a beautiful city”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Myself and my husband stayed in Amsterdam for 3 nights at this hotel and we loved it! The location is perfect; easy to get to from the train station (5 minute walk), quiet location but easy walking distance to all main attractions. The staff were lovely and very accomodating, allowing us to leave the bags there when we arrived before check-in and after we had checked out (flights were very early on arrival and late on depature). Room was very clean and staff came in the morning to clean it and then knocked on later in the day in case you needed anything else (fresh towels, etc). Didn't have the breakfast so we couldn't comment on it. Seemed a bit pricey at 25euros, especially when there are cafes around that are much cheaper. However, the spa facilities were free and were very clean and well-kept. And there was also a complementary mini bar which is restocked daily - a nice added bonus! All in all, a beautiful building with nice canal views, nice staff and in an excellent location. We certainly recommend it and would stay here again!

This is our second stay at the Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam over the last three years. The twice daily restocked mini bar, excellent concierge, and room service all make this hotel truly top notch. The architecture is uniquely beautiful, and you could really spend an entire day just exploring the hotel. Do not miss the wellness center; the steam room and saunas (there are three) can't be beat. Be sure to take advantage of the concierge; we had them twice arrange drivers for us at a price much lower than what we would have paid on our own, and we had excellent adventures both of those days.

The rooms themselves are wild and extremely comfortable. The beds are so comfortable that it is sometimes difficult to get over jet lag because all you want to do is sleep. The pillows are the largest and fluffiest I've ever experienced, and I'm hoping to buy some for my bed at home. The rooms are quite spacious by European standards and come equipped with a trouser press, robes, slippers, a wide range of high quality toiletries, mini bar, nespresso machine with tea and coffee, and some popcorn. The windows are gigantic, so be sure to get a city view. The wallpaper is wild, and the curtains are remote controlled.

The location can't be beat. It is right across the street from Central Station, so getting there from the airport is a mere 6 euro train ride, and excursions to all over the city are very easy and inexpensive. It's also within a five minute walk of the red light district, meaning you're far enough to not have noise problems, but close enough to be a bit of a tourist yourself. There are also several excellent restaurants just a few blocks away, and it's right in the heart of all of the coffee and smart shops.

Be sure to try the breakfast buffet for only 19.50 euro, or the french breakfast in the cafe for only 13.50!

Room Tip: The windows are huge, so paying a little extra for the city view is certainly worth it.

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights through Easytobook which was the surprise hotel, and the price was about 30% lower than the cheapest rate we could find on the internet. We were very surprised with the good value for money we got. We arrived 13h00 and one room was already available. The other one was ready half an hour later, which was great as check in is normally only from 14h00. The minibar was free and was filled up the next morning, and there was a good selection of drinks in it. We didn;t have breakfast at the hotel as we found the breakfast room too dark and the price was quite steep. We went opposite of the hotel to the top floor of the library, where there is a La Place located. The view is stunning and the food was good and very cheap.
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom spacious. Nice toiletries (Rituals).
The room had a Nespresso Machine which was a nice added bonus. Our rooms were located at the back side of the hotel, which overlooks the canals.
The hotel is a 10-minute walk of the train station.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the canal side; the rooms on the front are located right next to the main road (Pr...

1st time in Amsterdam and picked this hotel based on other TA reviews. It certainly lived up to the 5 star expectations and we couldn't fault the level of service, room, food, location & helpfulness of staff.
We stayed for 3 nights mid July and found the hotel to be within walking distance of the train station and all the attractions we planned to visit. Our room had apparently been upgraded on check in and we were absolutely delighted with the room we had. It was huge compared to other hotel rooms we have stayed in and it was fantastic to have so much space (and I so like my space when prepping for an evening out).
Major + point was the mini bar which was restocked daily and included both soft & alcoholic drinks.
Power shower & jacuzzi bath both excellent and comp toiletries very nice and refreshingly citrusy.
Only thing I'd do differently next time would be to have breakfast out of the hotel as is was rather expensive at 25 euros pp. Ok if you have a healthy appetite that early in the day but not value for money if you have a light breakfast.

We stayed at the AmrAth for 1 night in Amsterdam! It was a surprise for my hubby's birthday and i was so glad i chose this hotel. Great location! Wonderful service - complimentary cake and card on informing them that it was his birthday, they were so helpful in meeting all our needs/requests. Our room was perfect - comfy bed, lots of space with a bath tub & shower! Great SPA too. Complimentary mini bar was the icing on the cake!! The only negative would be the poor payout of the reception. Highly recommend this hotel!

My partner and I had three nights in this splendid hotel situated right in the centre of Amsterdam. 5 minutes from the central station and in walking distance of all the best of amsterdamn. The staff were friendly and efficient. The hotel was very well appointed and clean. Excellent facilities. We will definitely be returning next year. I cannot recommend this hotel more highly.

This is the third time I have stayed at this wonderful Hotel, and I would never stay at anywhere else in Amsterdam.
From the time you arrive to the time you leave you are made to feel really welcome.
From the reception to the bell Station and the bar everyone is so nice.
Thank you all again for a great stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a room on the lower ground floor
