From the moment we arrived until our departure we were pampered by all the hotel staff. Lovely room overlooking a canal. Wonderful choice at breakfast with everything you could possibly wish for and superb service by warm and friendly staff. We ate in the Bar which was cosy and comfortable and served a light meal from the restaurant kitchen. The hotel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of all the major museums, galleries and other places of historical interest.

Amsterdam luxury

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Mark A Business - 01/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is perfectly positioned to enjoy all of Amsterdam On a recent trip there, our second to this hotel, my wife and I were able to walk to all the places we wanted to visit. Although not cheap, the rate is very fair and we always feel special staying here. The staff are professional, courteous and friendly. Walking into the courtyard in front of our hotel after a day exploring always makes us feel that we really are staying somewhere very grand indeed.

I would like to thank you for choosing Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam again and describing your experience here on TripAdvisor. It is a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your stays in our hotel and it makes me proud of the entire team in The Grand when I read how you experienced our service. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Grand in the future and hope to see you again very soon.

Compass27369030362 Couples - 18/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

We enjoyed the view from our Deluxe Canal View Room. The bedroom, bathroom, and dressing room were large, even by US standards. All the staff members we encountered were friendly and attentive, especially the bartender in the intimate and atmospheric "Brown Bar". The beds were amazingly comfortable, and thankfully, the king mattress wasn't two mattresses pushed together. Now I understand why this hotel was highly recommended by friends and our travel agent.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us here on TripAdvisor. Your valuable feedback is much appreciated and we have shared these lovely comments with the entire team. It is our passion to provide all our guests a memorable experience and I am glad to learn that this time we managed this again because high quality service is one of our top priorities. We were also really exited to read that you enjoyed our ultimate sleeping experience with Sofitel MYBED so much and with that said, we look forward to welcoming you back to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam in the future and hope to see you again soon.

Johan V Business - 20/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

Dear guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. With kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

Richard K Couples - 04/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your most kind words on Tripadvisor. Thank you also for your continued support of Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam. We hope to welcome you back in the near future at The Grand. With kind fregards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

Terrific Hotel

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

photowagner Family - 15/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

Dear guest, What a pleasure to read your review about The Grand on Tripadvisor ! It is with great pride that I read your wonderful comments about our team, they get a lot of satisfaction from guests who show their appreciation. I have therefore shared your kind words with the entire team. I hope to welcome you back in The Grand in the near future. With kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

Wedding anniversary at De Grand

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

H9024LBrobw Couples - 10/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

Dear guest, We were thrilled to welcome you for your recent wedding anniversary and thank you so much for your kind words. I very much appreciate all your comments and I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed an impeccable experience. We are looking forward to welcome you back soon to The Grand ! With kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

What a beautiful hotel!

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

PhiladelphiaKaren Couples - 08/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

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!

Dear guest, Your kind words are very much appreciated and we would like to thank you for sharing them on TripAdvisor. We have noted your comment about the slightly dark hallways and rooms. Please rest assured that should we decide to renovate the rooms and hallways we will definitely take your remark in consideration. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam. With kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

Thank you for taking the time to write this positive feedback on Tripadvisor. It is a pleasure to read that you have enjoyed your stay with us and we do appreciate your kind words regarding our breakfast and level of service. Your feedback is very much appreciated and I will share them with the entire team. We hope to welcome you back in the near future at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam.

Hotel good, spa not good

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

eseyidli Business - 23/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

Please allow us to thank you for your stay at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, and mostly for reporting your observations here on Tripadvisor. It is a pleasure to read that you have enjoyed our facilities, room amenities and staff service. Your feedback is essential to the continuous improvement of our facilities and services and therefore I regret to read that the spa experience was not living up to your expectations.Your feedback will be discussed internally in order to improve where needed. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of.

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

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

tnyniezt Family - 13/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent stay at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam on TripAdvisor. It was such a pleasure to have you staying with us. I am thrilled that enjoyed your stay again and that you thought the bedroom and services were excellent. I regret to read however, that upon your return in Paris you discovered a scratch on the velg of your car. I understand that our Concierge department has already been in contact with you regarding this matter. I hope to welcome you back to The Grand in the near future and we thank you for your continued support. With kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

Apr 2018 stay at Sofitel The Legend in Amsterdam

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

wu e Couples - 07/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

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 !!

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave your experience on Tripadvisor. Your feedback is very much appreciated and I will share it with the entire team. Thank you also for your remark about the light in the bathroom. Should we decide to renovate our rooms in the future, we will for sure consider your comment. We hope to welcome you back in the near future! With kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager

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!

Dear guest, It is a real pleasure to read your wonderful review and your words are very encouraging for the entire team, thank you ! It fills me with great pride to read that you find the service of our team better than that of a Ritz Carlton. We hope to soon welcome you back to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam.

peterrI1623FP Couples - 28/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

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!

Dear guest, It is a pleasure to read your wonderful review and your words are very encouraging for the entire team, thank you ! Indeed, our hotel breathes history...in fact we organize a daily history tour for in-house guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam. Wiht kind regards, Remco Groenhuijzen General Manager
