Couldn't as for more.

Amsterdam is rememberable on its own. When you stay in an esablishment like this it adds more memory. Amsterdam doesn't have the nicest hotels if you are middle class like us. We have been there 3 times and never have experienced a hotel experience such as this. They leave you alone they understand you are in AMSTERDAM MAN!! They give you the best service whether you are dirtbags like us or if your the many musicians staying there at the time (Cypress Hill, Blink 182, and Limp Bizkit).

Don't judge the Sofitel for their prices. They get paid and they dont care if you eat elsewhere. Within a quater mile radius, there is EVERYTHING FROM SHOPPING SMOKING AND AWESOME FOOD.

Sofitel Grand

Breakfast buffet great food, poor service and expensive. Service in general just a little off what is expected at this level.

Vacation with 18 year old daughter

This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Amsterdam. It is a very clean upscale hotel with great service.

Money stolen from room!

My girlfriend had $300.00 cash (US Dollars) stolen from the room. We suspect the maids took it, but have no proof. My girlfriend didn't put it in the safe, and left it hidden in her suitcase. She went to the police station in Amsterdam to report it stolen (escorted by hotel security staff) The hotel is not responsible, but it just makes you really 'nervous'. I will admit the security staff did a great job, and knew exactly who was in and out of the room, and even knew what time the safe was open and closed. As a courtesy, The hotel 'comp'd' us a lunch at the Bridges restaurant, and it was easily worth $100 Euro's and was excellent. This was my 2nd stay at The Grand Sofitel, and I have stayed at the Convent, the former/older Sofitel as well. They are going through a renovation, and the indoor pool was not open. The Superior Room was too small for 2 people, so I forked out the $100 euro per night additional for the upgraded suite style room with a desk. ADVICE ON ROOM CHOICE: Ask for the 2nd or 3rd floor ONLY, with a canal view. If you stay on the 5th floor, you will not be able to see the canal from the window. You will only see the roof lines, and miss the beautiful character of Amsterdam. TRIVIA: Michael Jackson stayed at this hotel, when he was in Amsterdam.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Find Warmosstraat street, and go one block past to Kalverstr. for some great local shopping. Stay away from the Magna Plaza building behind the Royal Palace. Most of the shops are going out of business. It was waste of time.
