Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam
Ranked #75 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2014

This is an amazing building, an old shipping office on many floors just a short walk from Central Station. It has a paternoster lift, now disused. The rooms are large and high-ceilinged. Ours had remote controlled curtains. Very comfortable beds. Lovely bathroom with two basins, a bath and a separate shower, free mini bar, wonderful pool, sauna and hot tub. On the downside, the room was hot and we could not work out how to cool it down. Not sure it merits a 5 star, but compared to many other hotels in Amsterdam it is a gem.

The good points:
Huge clean and comfortable room with high ceilings (I do get the impression that every room will be very different in this eclectic building).
Free mini-bar.
The room was quiet and sleep quality was excellent (my biggest gripe with more modern hotels)
Free wi-fi with good speed/signal strength.
Fantastic location just 5 mins walk from Central Station.
Friendly staff.
Historic building with interesting interiors/exteriors.

The bad points:
House keeping missed our room one day so we called down to reception and asked for the room to be cleaned. They did a shoddy half finished job.
No shower curtain.
Parts of the hotel just felt scruffy and need of an update.

Overall it exceeded my expectations.

Its a grand experience. The staff is very pleasant and service-minded. Rooms are cleand and luxuriouse.
If you ever travel to Amsterdam, this is the hotel! The price is ok compared to other hotels in this range.
The hotel is 2 minute walk from the main train station of Amsterdam.

This was our second stay at the Amrath - we decided to make a return visit as we had enjoyed it so much last year. Highlights were still the art deco surroundings and the fantastic spa. It was also very quiet for a city centre hotel. One complaint I do have is the bed, which was supposed to be double sized but was actually 2 single beds pushed together and 2 single duvets. Not ideal for the romantic getaway we had planned! This is why I am giving a 4 star rating and not 5 star....also there was not as much variety in the mini bar this year, although it was included in the price, which I haven't come across before.

I had written a very good review about the Amrath last year. I have been there again 3 times since and each time was less good than before. First of all: the service. A very small room for the reception, most for the time one person, very slow, had to wait 30 minutes once in order to be able to check in. We got once 2 single beds. We asked to change room which was not possible so we were promised "right away" a mattress to cover the gap between the beds, but we are still waiting for it... The free mini bar is poorer each time we go also. As far as the hotel itself is concerned, it stinks more and more. The carpets in the halls, especially at level -1 and next to the pool itself there is a smell. The cleanliness is also doubtful: when I went beginning of Jan, there was a chewing gum next to the stream of the pool...when I went back 2 weeks later, the chewing gum was till there!!! The breakfast is also not great: everything is cold (eggs, sausages...) and the pastries (doughnut etc) are dry. Disappointing in such a wonderful place and in a 5 star hotel!

Hotel facilities were great, short walk from Centraal Station and centrally located. Staff were very friendly, room was large and had a free mini bar. Glass door for the bathroom was a bit strange but overall excellent hotel.

Impressive architecture, quirky Art Deco interiors and very nicely appointed rooms. I took a junior suite as I like space to work and a comfy chair whilst traveling and I was not disappointed. Incredibly comfortable bed, a window that actually opens and a reasonably well stocked minibar included in the room tariff made for a pleasant couple of days at a very acceptable price. The staff were mostly friendly and professional. The only let down was that room service forgot to bring my early breakfast order on my last morning which made for a bit of a grumpy ride to the airport (but I can't blame the hotel staff for my being a moody old soul when I haven't eaten)!
