« Excellent - one of the best Sofitels in Europe »

Room space and design are outstanding. Personnel is extremely friendly and helpful. Bridges restaurant is much better than Sofitel average. Sofitel has always been a top experience for us. So we have been big fans for many years.

This was our third return to this wonderful hotel -- the rooms, and particularly the beds, are comfortable and Bridges Restaurant serves gourmet cuisine. The location makes getting anywhere in Amsterdam (or The Netherlands, for that matter) easy.

« Terrific Hotel »

This might be the greatest hotel I've ever stayed in. Sofitel properties, in general, are excellent and I've stayed in numerous Sofitels. Amsterdam, however, is that much better. Excellent staff, butlers available is so desired and the food is very good. Very comfortable bed. My only slight against this property is it's on the border of the red light district and the smell of pot is pretty obvious when you hit the street. Love this place and will return.

« Wedding anniversary at De Grand »

We enjoyed out stay at De Grand enornously. De Grand is one of the best hotels of Amsterdam and perfectly located in the old city center. It is probably not the cheapest, but the service was immaculate, the attention to detail phenomenal and the staff provided US with the hospitality one can wish for without overexaggerating.

« What a beautiful hotel! »

The exterior is gorgeous, with its lovely courtyard and uniformed attendants. The lobby is stunning also, and the outdoor terrace restaurant is so welcoming. The staff are so friendly and well-trained. It is a pleasure to stay there! My only slightly negative comment is that the rooms and hallways to the rooms are very dark. The rooms could use a little update in the décor. But it was a beautiful hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer!

« Hotel good, spa not good »

Hotel facilities, room amenities, location, staff - all are good. Spa is nice but not managed properly - sauna takes 30-40 mins to warm up and never reaches the right temp. Sauna is too small. Steam room did not work. But when it works - it does not smell nice. that is why i did not use it this time and the previous time I stayed in this hotel. the pool is nice. My massage got delayed 20 mins and they knew this in advance but nobody bothered to call me. Overall it is a very good hotel, but for the price I would expect a luxury level and better managed spa centre.

« Hi. Bedroom and services was just excellent. Only one big thing, when we let our car, it got some big scratches on velg. »

We’re having 5 night stays to celebrate hubby’s birthday. We passed many special anniversaries when we stayed in this hotel. And as our stay was always well passed here, without hesitation we let our car in their parking station. Unless, when we got back in paris, we found big scratch on the velg. As my hubby is really love his car, it becomes a deep disappointment. However, it can be happened everywhere. But as long as we travelled from paris-belgium-germany-amsterdam-paris on that short holiday , never had any accident. Thank you.

« Apr 2018 stay at Sofitel The Legend in Amsterdam »

Definitely a grand hotel. Well located in the old town of Amsterdam and within walking distance to the tourist sites in the old town. The cost was on the high end especially during the tulip season. Our bathroom definitely need more light or change to lighter colored wall tiles. All other amenities are top notch !!

« Wonderful, personal experience »

The service at the Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam was of the highest quality. The personal involvement of the staff was better than that of a Ritz Carlton. They were helpful, friendly, and always had a warm greeting. One staff member even stopped us on the street, many blocks from the hotel, just to say hello!

« quiet and luxury »

We are very content with our five day stay in The Grand Sofitel. The service is excellent, with abundance of personnel, always polite, friendly, helpful and experienced. We asked for the council chamber and were spontaneously offered a private tour through the building, which is gorgeous. The atmosphere/'vibe' in the hotel, restaurants and bar is very pleasant. The concierge helped us a number of times with suggestions and advice on public transportation. Our room viewed on the inner court and we had absolute quietness, which is important for us. Also from within the building there were hardly any sounds. All in all an excellent experience - we will be back!

We went privatly for one night to the Grand in Amsterdam and had a splendid stay in this fabulous hotel. Superb service and warmth approaches you as soon as you enter the main entrance. We were lucky to be upgraded to a senior suite and it was fantastic. We had something to celebrate and I can tell you that this is the spot to do that. Emile & Wendy November '17

Spent a great three days, filled with luxurious treatments, food and surroundings in this lovely, historic hotel. A very personal approach, with an incredibly high standard that is shared between all staff members. The inside hotel tour is recommended, opening a world of historic events that took place there.

« Very disappointing »

I have stayed in Sofitel hotels around the world over the last few months and was really looking forward to the stay in Amsterdam. The hotel is beautiful and the reception/public areas are every nice. The problem was noise. Our bedroom was located above the loading bay on a side street (Sint Agnietenstraat). On Saturday morning at 530am we were woken up by a truck pulling up and then by 2 hours of unloading. The noise was incredible. We asked at the front desk whether the same thing would happen the next morning and were assured that they would look into it and get back to us but there was no follow up. At 530am on Sunday morning the same thing happened. Being tired and jet lagged and looking forward to sleeping in on the weekend of an anniversary trip this noise ruined the holiday. I'm also sad to say that the bar service was haphazard and the lunch in the Bistro was very underwhelming. The vegetarian curry was inedible -- a watery, flavourless mess -- and the fish and chips soggy and unremarkable in every way. It is very hard to believe that the food we ate came from the same kitchen as a Michelin star restaurant. Moreover the ambience was ruined while someone ran a vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes through the bar and restaurant area. A few other minor complaints -- the shower flooded the bathroom floor every time no matter what precautions we took and the gym/change room areas were very small and not well serviced/maintained. We so wanted to love this hotel, as we do the Sofitel St James in London, but the experience was very disappointing. Management should be upfront about the potential for noise in some rooms and should at least be responsive to concerns raised.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with us. Happy to read that the beauty of our property was so convenient for you. We regret to learn that you have experienced noise coming from the streets. May I suggest that we also have rooms with a lovely view on our secluded garden, these rooms are more quiet most of the time. We will definitely locate you to one of these rooms if you decide to return to the hotel. We sincerely regret that the price-quality did not meet your expectations in our ‘Le Petit Bistro’ during lunch. We will share these comments with our Food & Beverage Manager and of course as well with our Chef de Cuisine to prevent this from happening again in the near future. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam again to prove ourselves a better host. Sincerely, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager
