    From the moment we arrived at the Sofitel Amsterdam I knew the stay would be special. On check in we were offered a complimentary upgrade to a suite with canal views. The staff were outstanding particularly those on the front desk.The location is fantastic, minutes walk from shops, bars and restaurants. The building itself is beautiful and this was reflected in the high standard of our room. I cannot fault any aspect of our stay and would highly recommend this hotel. It is everything a 5 star hotel should be.

    There was nothing that I didn't like about this hotel.

    From the minute we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The staff were all amazing and the refurbished style fo the hotel is very chic. This really is a top quality hotel, right in the heart of Amsterdam. It's quite expensive, but you get what you pay for. For us, as special treat location, but worth every penny (or Euro). We love it and will return

    I must say the hotel was extermly "Grand", great location for shopping & if it takes your fancy the fantastic Ladies of the Night on display (I say Ladies as I was amazed that it was not all grandmothers but in fact their granddaughters)..... The location is within 10 minute walking distance of the central railway station & 15 - 20 minutes from the airport by taxi (taxi around 57 euros from the airport). There are lots of little cafe`s to suit all tastes & a happy vibe all around from the buzz of locals & tourists alike. The hotel spa is a must, start the way you mean to continue & relax...It`s the Amsterdam way of life... Enjoy....

    I am still thinking but cannot find any fault, great place...

    Superb

    Service was excellent from the reception to the concierge including the porters and the chambermaids. We were graciously and fortunately upgraded to a suite without having to request for it. Our connecting rooms were luxurious,clean and well-decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the provision of turn down service with nightly pralines and Evian water was a welcome and thoughtful touch. The bathroom was likewise well-laid out with high quality ammenities. The spa and the fitness center with pool and sauna was well-maintained and. We will come back to this hotel.

    Our stay at Sofitel Amsterdam The Grand was very satisfactory and it was one of the best hotels we stayed in during our 18-day European trip. The only drawback during our stay is that the breakfast was very expensive at 30+ euros per head considering that it does not have a varied and extensive breakfast buffet spread..

    I like the atmosphere of the hotel, the little garden out side. Between all hotelsin Amsterdam we had to chose from that was the newest and trendiest

    That it's close to a coffee shop that serves marijuana, wish the streets were cleaner like the hotel . Our room is fine (my sister and I) but my parents had to change their room 2 times because it was too small
