A beautiful castle like hotel. Superb central location. Very clean and staff is helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend it. We were there for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. Cute garden is the middle of it where you can enjoy drinks on a sunny day. Their breakfast is delicious and very generous.

Hotel's Favourite
The SOFITEL THE GRAND in Amsterdam is a true legend. Everything is sublime. Beautiful courtyard, out of sight and quiet. During the summer season, the restaurant also offers terrace dining in a private courtyard. Two restaurants: one gourmet, the other simpler. Attractive whisky bar. The lobby is spacious and pleasant. Rooms are large, well-appointed and very well soundproofed. The "plus" is also the very conscientious staff, present but discreet, offering personalized service. There is a swimming pool. The hotel is right in the center of Amsterdam, just a few minutes from the train station.

Sofitel Legend The Grand is located in a beautiful building with a great history, right in the famous canal district in Amsterdam. It's a beautiful hotel, offering all luxury and comfort that can be expected from a five star hotel. Normally we never have dinner in hotels, but this time we made an exception to try out restaurant Bridges where we had a truly memorable dinner with fantastic wines. We sincerely loved the place and their staff is so attentive and kind.

We had a great time at The Grand, The hotel staff is simply amazing, the service during our dinner provided by Dennis from Oriole made it simply perfect, the same Compliments to Joshoa from Bridges restaurant, both are very professional, yet funny and have a wide knowledge about the menu as well as the wine. We had also the chance to meet the F&B manager Mr. Okkerse that was walking around making sure both restaurants are properly function, no doubt we will be back. I would say, keep on the spirit as well as the high level of service and food quality.

4+ but no 5 star quality Booked a suit that was definitely not up to the standard. Bed and furniture a bit dated. You could expect more of a 5 star residence today. If you compare it to other top 5 star hotels. Location is very good. Friendly staff. Lacks also amenities.

Some of the best service received in Amsterdam. We booked the hotel last minute as our previous hotel was severely under par. At the grand they went above and beyond making sure our stay was memorable. The staff were accommodating and attentive. The bed is one of the best sleeps I’ve had in a while. The location is fantastic as the hotel is right in the middle of everything but just far enough to avoid the crowds. Best place to stay as a tourist in Amsterdam.

Amazing location with all city reachable by walk and fantastic service in this wonderful Sofitel. Just below red district, close to all bars and restaurant between the city center canals. We advise the prestige suite with canal view. Evening cocktail at Flying Dutch Bar is a must...

Such an amazing experience, the hotel is ideally located in Amsterdam, you can walk to most points of interest. From check in to check out the experience is unique and they make you feel special. The building, and historical one, gives so much charm. All perfect, we probably visit Sofitel much more often

This is one of the most amazing hotels I've stayed in! We booked it last minute as we had to move from a grotty hotel. PHILLIPO, at the checkin desk was extremely helpful and kind. I was a bit upset about the previous hotel and he sussed out the situation immediately and made us feel at ease. A complementary tea served by Josephine, was very welcome. She too was helpful and kind. The room was exceptional, the location superb and it changed our first impressions of Amsterdam. The breakfast offered a wide range of food and was served by helpful, pleasant staff. It is a short walk to the station. I can't thank Phillipo enough. I hope his manager's recognise the skills he has in dealing with residents in a professional, caring manner. His ability to assess a situation and provide solutions in a empathetic way were outstanding. Thank you!
