We stayed 1 night with the family and were lucky to have received an upgrade for the room. It was a wonderful experience for us and an epic one for the kids. Hotel, room and service were magnificent. We felt a bit like Kevin in the Plaza in NY. Spoiled.

Thank you very much, our staff will no doubt take great pride in reading them. We certainly hope to welcome you back to Amsterdam, and wish you all the best in the meantime.

I had a excellent night, helped by the butler service and the sofitel bed. I made the hotel tour which is interesting to understand the history of the walls. Bar has a good selection of drinks, don't hesitate to ask the barman to discover new things. My only regret is due to my flight delay, I didn't have time to enjoy the restaurant.

From the moment we arrived until our departure we were pampered by all the hotel staff. Lovely room overlooking a canal. Wonderful choice at breakfast with everything you could possibly wish for and superb service by warm and friendly staff. We ate in the Bar which was cosy and comfortable and served a light meal from the restaurant kitchen. The hotel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of all the major museums, galleries and other places of historical interest.
