Wonderful Place to Stay
This is a wonderful hotel. The service is excellent in almost all respects, although there was a wait to check in. To apologize, we were given a room upgrade. Very classy. Location is very good. Their Canaan tour is excellent. The food is pricey, but it sure is a great experience

Perfect spot
We have stayed here multiple times. It is a beautiful historic hotel that is very well located. It is everything you would expect of a Sofitel. The staff is very attentive and accommodating. We were upgraded to fantastic apartments that were very roomy and very nice. Breakfast is excellent. Decorations at Christmas time are fabulous. This is our go to spot to stay in Amsterdam. We heartily recommend it.

Five star everything
Fabulous hotel. Great staff and a wonderful breakfast in their restaurant. Custom eggs/omelets, sausage, bacon and a good array of cold meats, salmon, fruit, yogurts, breads and Dutch treats. We traveled with two couples and a single. We all received complementary upgrades to beautiful and very spacious suites. They delivered a fantastic chocolate mousse cake for a birthday in the group. Best location, very close to the central square and walking distance to museums. We have stayed here three times and plan to return.
