“A grand five-star hotel located in the heart of the city. Despite being set in a 17th -century building, interiors are modern and stylish. Spacious rooms and suites have plenty of light, retro furniture, and most have bathtubs. With fine dining, a spa, and butler service - this is luxury defined.”

Hotel Review

The best bet amongst Amsterdam’s clutch of traditional luxury hotels, if more glacial than characterful, The Grand benefitted from a complete refurbishment in 2010. It has a rich history, having been both headquarters of the Dutch Admiralty during the ‘Golden Age’ and city hall. With The 177 luxury rooms, 52 of which are suites, the hotel now combines the latest technology with traditional detailing. Unsurprisingly, you can expect a charge to use the wireless internet. The ‘Bridges’ restaurant serves fresh fish and organic vegetables and chef Aurélien Poirot, prepares his dishes with a French touch. The hotel also features a tranquil inner garden, gymnasium, indoor heated pool, hot tub, sauna and massage therapists.

Sofitel Legend Amsterdam the Grand

A place of elegance and repose in the heart of town, housed in an erstwhile Admiralty building (dating from the 17th century) and one-time City Hall (in the 1930s), with a calm contemporary design touch. There's an excellent restaurant and beautiful garden courtyard. Staff are relaxed, gracious and quietly efficient.
