Wonderful experience!
My daughter and I came for holiday.... just the two of us. This property is so beautiful and the staff is so attentive and friendly. I highly recommend the Sofitel in Amsterdam if you have the opportunity. So grateful. Thank you.

A place of peace in the central part of Amsterdam
Well located, clean and comfortable. We had a superior room with canal view on the first floor. The only negative was the stair up to the bathroom and entry door and closet. Have read about street noise but it wasn't an issue. Don't be afraid to try the restaurants here as they are excellent. Service throughout was exceptional. This hotel has history and is a haven in Amsterdam. Beware the bicycles everywhere!

Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, Amsterdam
The entire experience was superb- from check-in to checkout. The entire staff was extremely polite, cheerful and helpful. Dining in the restaurant was awesome. It made me feel like the food was prepared especially for me. The only complaint was not with the hotel but with maintenance/cleanliness of toilet obliquely across from the hotel in front of bar/restaurant. It wreaked of urine every single time I walked past it. I don't know if it is he city's responsibility but it needs to be addressed by the businesses in the area.
