HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We booked through American Express for several days over the King's Day festivities. We were given a beautiful room facing the canal. The room was somewhat small compared to US standards, but very comfortable, with quiet HVAC and excellent bedding. Service at the hotel was top notch, and we took full advantage of the free breakfast that came with the...

The staff at this hotel was most helpful. I needed distilled water for a particular medication and it was found for me. The concierge was most helpful in finding places of interest. Although the restaurant was fully booked a meal was provided for us in the library.

We arrived a good 6 hours before checkin. Turning off a busy street, you drive into a serene courtyard filled with flowering rhododendrons and a beautiful fountain. Smiling doormen greet you, and escort you inside. The two receptionists at checkin were immaculate in presentation, and greeted us with warmth and attention. Despite us being so incredibly early, they were able...

We loved everything about The Grand. The employees were welcoming, helpful, friendly and efficient. The hotel itself is beautiful, especially the lobbies, the courtyard and the gardens. Our room, with its cabal view, was the perfect marriage of modern features and traditional comfort. And the bed.....it was soooo comfortable. Like sleeping on a cloud. We loved breakfast each morning and...

Some friends and I spent 3 days in Amsterdam and the Sofitel Legend was a brilliant location. We were not too far from many of the things we wanted to see and were able to walk to most. The hotel was comfortable and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return and recommend.

Location, location, location .... but not only ... from the grand entrance to the kindness of the staff, the breakfast or the homy rooms, all elements are gathered to ensure a great stay in Amsterdam with all key landmarks withing a walking distance. Local and historic from the outside, classic with a twist inside, truly enjoyed The Grand

I went to Amsterdam for a business conference and the hotel was the conference venue, as well as my accommodation. The concierge was great and the food delicious. My room was spacious, bright and clean and very tall which made it feel like loft. The staff was helpful. There were some cracked tiles in the bathroom, which was a bit...

We spent a long time looking for the right hotel in which to celebrate our wedding anniversary before deciding on the Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam. The search for the right place proved well worthwhile. We arrived in Amstedam from Schipol Airport via direct train to Central Station. Although it would have been easy to take a taxi we chose...

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
