Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam
Ranked #75 of 371 Hotels in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2009

The Grand Hotel Amrath is visually astounding. It is an old shipping terminal converted
into a hotel and they've tried to keep as many original features as possible. To be
honest, when entering the first time I was a bit worried as it's not immediately obvious
that this is a 5 star hotel in 100 year old furnishings. But once you meet the staff and
get to your room you'll realise just how great this place is.

There is a great spa and pool in the basement for relaxing and getting away from the Amsterdam madness.

Word of warning - you WILL get lost getting back to your room inside the hotel! But that's part of the fun here. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and quiet and the location is in one of the best possible locations. Book it!

The hotel is perfectly located just near the central station with cafés and restaurants nearby. The staff is very helpfull and welcoming. Our room was cleaned twice a day and the mini bar re-filled every day (free minibar!).

Smoking rooms are available.

When we arrived we were told that we had booked a deluxe room, i.e. the lowest quality that this 5* has. I informed them that I had in fact booked "run of the house" with expedia, which meant i was to receive the best room in the hotel available at the time of check in. The manager was called in and after thinking for a moment asked that we follow him. We were escorted to a massive suite with 8 rooms. It was incredible. Bed amongst the most comfortable I have slept in. Aside from this the staff were very pleasant and the hotel restaurant served excellent food.

Overall a very satisfied customer.

This is a great hotel in a very central location of Amsterdam. Being near to the train station is perfect for taking the train to and from the airport, as well as being near all of the public transportation. Interestingly, the think that I liked most was the free minibar. It was nice to be able to take a soda or a water without paying 5 euros. Great hotel and one that I would definitely stay in next time.

Beautiful hotel in a great location just 2 blocks from the red light district. Best hotel in the area. Beautiful pool and spa. The food in the bar was wonderful. Beautiful place to walk around also. One of the best things about this hotel is the free minibar that is restocked daily!! Enough alcohol for 2 people!

My husband and I stayed in Amsterdam during Easter week. We chose the Amrath based on the mainly excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We wanted a really nice hotel, centrally located, with a swimming pool. The Amrath met all these requirements. We arrived from the U.S. in the morning, about 9 a.m. We were taken care of immediately. We were offered a room on the canal side but were told it wouldn't be available until later in the afternoon, so we opted instead for a room facing the front of the hotel. We were on the top floor, and noise was not a problem at all, either from the street or from the corridor. In fact, this hotel was the quietest we have ever stayed in. We never heard any noise whatsoever from the hallways.

Any problems we had were immediately taken care of. On Easter Sunday, for example, the room hadn't been cleaned when we returned at 5 p.m. We called to let them know, and the maid came up in about ten minutes, whereupon we went down to the pool and relaxed for about an hour or so. When we returned to the room, it had been cleaned.

I'm writing this letter now, because I'm shocked at the negative reviews of this hotel. We loved the expresso coffee maker, the free mini bar, the pool and spa, and unlimited towels. The hotel is across the road from the Central Station and all the trams begin and end there, making it very easy to get around and find your way back later.

We loved Amsterdam, and if we ever return, we would definitely stay at the Amrath.

We ended up booking this hotel on hotwire the night before our trip. I was so nervous as I have had bad hotwire experiences. 5 Star for $126 a night. WOW! We were so thrilled with the results! This hotel was great! The room was very sexy with 18 foot ceiling, an incredible bed, awesome bathroom with a bath big enough for two and...a FREE minibar! After a late night in Amsterdam we could not wait to get back to the room!!!!

The only problem...and someone else had mentioned this in their review...you can hear through the doors. So in the morning, I was disturbed numerous times by the sound of the housekeeping staff chatting and cleaning. It was very annoying.

But for $126 and such a fabulous room...I could not bring myself to complain to the management! The free minibar kept me satisfied!
