Extraordinary stuff was too expensive

Great view of the square and queen's castle. Nice staff and rooms. Beautiful banquet hall and dining room. 2 coffe's at the resturaunt were 14 Euros. It came with chocolates and cookies but I just wanted a place to buy 2 cups of coffee. Instant was available free in the room so we enjoyed that a bit but we found a place around the courner in the crowded city to get a nice cup. The buffets were too expensive. We couldn't afford it. We found a nice sub shop and a nice place in the city close by. The alley that separates the 2 areas of the hotel is traveled by those commuting from the red light district so we didn't feel safe going from the main building to the next, but we felt like if we waited till the coast was clear that we were okay. So good and bad to it but it was a nice trip.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The train station is about 10 minutes walk or less than 5 on a tram that is cheap. The train gets you to the airport for 4.5 Euro each. the taxi is 40 Euro and a shuttle is 12 Euro's per person so that's a big savings.

Amsterdam Get -Away

Excellent Location to catch tram or can walk to many sites (i.e., Ann Frank House, Red Light District, Flower Garden) Staff very eager to please and make your stay positive. Great grocery and wine store behind Palace. Museums are a short tram ride away. Argentine steak restaurants are within walking distance and french fries with mayonnaise are a must try.

Much better than the reviews suggested

I was really worried about staying at this hotel after I read the reviews. I'm happy to report though that I had a great experience here!! I had a reservation for a standard-twin bed smoking room. At check-in I asked if it would be possible to have a room with a bigger bed. The front desk clerk checked and I was given a spacious room with a king size bed, no problem. My room was in the main building on the 4th floor. My next worry was a stinky room, which was not the case at all. It smelled very pleasant. There was a window that I could open (which had a sliver of a view of the dam) and along with the airconditioning system I was able to air out the effects of my smoking. The bathroom was old and outdated but clean. I ate the breakfast buffet in the wintergarten one time. The selection and quality of the offerings were great, however as it was not included in my room rate I had to pay for it. The price was outrageous, and I would have had to drink the champagne to get my money's worth. The location of this hotel is unbeatable!!! I found that using the trams very convenient for getting close to the attractions and to save on steps. Be sure to have comfortable walking shoes.

We like to walk and many museums, canals, cafes, as well as the railroad station were very nearby. However, after experiencing Queeen's Day, we would not go back to Amsterdam on that holiday! The mobs prevented shopping and sight-seeing!!

Great Hotel and Perfect Location

We went for a long weekend. Our plan was to have a romantic getaway, walk everywhere, and see as much as we could see in three days. The location of the hotel was only a few blocks from Central Station and walking distance to everywhere. The two restaurants in the hotel were very good, and the bar was a cozy place to have drinks before or after dinner. The service was good. We would stay there again.

Amsterdam's finest

The Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky is the grand jewel of all the Amsterdam Hotels. Location is on Dame Square across from the Royal Palace. It is walking distance from the Floating Flower Market, Shopping, Museums, Red Light District, Central Station and the cannel tours. The restaurants in the hotel are all 5 star. The finest dining and atmosphere in all of Amsterdam. The rooms are spacious, clean, and air conditioned. Great hotel, great rooms, great restaurants, great location, all make for a great recommendation. I couldn't find one thing I would change or find anything that I was not satisfied with.
