This is an older hotel, but they have done a wonderful job maintaining the property. We booked through American Express travel and were upgraded by the kind staff to a Canal House Suite, which was enormous and came with butler service. My husband loved the Toto toilet with all its fun features. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant every morning, which was absolutely excellent. Raspberry smoothie was to die for. The staff were all wonderful.

Lovely Hotel

We had a wonderful three night stay. Service in the hotel is amazing. The concierge was very helpful with booking tours and restaurants. The hotel has a beautiful entry courtyard and also another beautiful courtyard where we ate a couple of times. The food in the hotel is really good and service is amazing. Love the maitre d in the mornings. He has the best personality. Breakfast was delicious with everything you could possibly want. Our room had a beautiful canal view and was very quiet. We loved the bathroom, it was a long narrow space but really well thought out. The only negative is that the area to the right of the hotel is really filthy.

This is a top notch hotel. The rooms are light, bright and well equipped and maintained. Our bed was comfortable. The staff were pleasant, efficient and faultlessly helpful. The location is central, but just outside the main tourist area so that there was no noise even when that central area was packed. There are two quality restaurants available in-house, as well as bars, a lounge and a spa (with pool). If you go there, expect to have a wonderful stay.

Thank you very much for this wonderful review regarding your most recent stay at Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam. It is truly a pleasure to read that you have enjoyed your trip to Amsterdam so much and that the hotel and its service provided by our colleagues exceeded your expectations. We would be more than pleased to welcome you back again soon during your next trip to Amsterdam.

Aburel TripAdvisor review

The place is historic, well maintained and offers good service. It is very well located not far from Dam, with lots of things nearby. Great style in rooms, small but very efficient and well appointed. very nice and comprehensive breakfast with great canal views and super coffee. Try to visit also the nice room hosting the city hall where royals got married amongst others. Great inner courtyard and amazing bar area.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review regarding your most recent stay at our hotel. It is truly a pleasure to read that you have enjoyed your visit in our historic hotel. It would be a true pleasure to welcome you back again during your next trip to Amsterdam.

When I turned up they had my arrival date wrong & it turned out they had overcharged me for an extra night - now refunded . The next day my room wasn’t cleaned till I asked for it late in the day. Housekeeping had thought I was checking out that day…no free water in the room but only expensive water in the minibar although at checkout I was refunded for this . A tiny room and a very small gym.But friendly staff…
