"2nd stay, still excellent"
I'm not sure how we ended up in this fabulous suite but thank you to the Grand Hotel Amrath again for a wonderful stay at your lovely lovely hotel. It was our wedding anniversary and we were given room 235, which had a four poster bed, a massive bathroom with double sinks, huge bath and spa shower and a separate office/sitting room, complete with 2 large sofas, a huge writing desk and tv. The hotel kindly left us a half bottle of bubbles in an ice bucket and a very sweet note of congratulations. As we always tell people, it's not everyone's cup of tea but we love this beautiful building with it's lavish art, marble work and stained glass windows, it's really quirky. The beds and bedding are first class and the service is second to none. We love this place for it's close proximity to Centraal station and all that goes with Amsterdam. As this hotel lies to the east of the station it's a quieter location and if you're room is located road side it's lovely to look out onto the floating Chinese restaurant and all it's lights. Although it's a little expensive for us we think it's worth it and if you book flights and hotel through Expedia it works out a little cheaper. This visit we found they took a small deposit against our credit card for breakages so keep this in mind when you go. For us it's the Grand Hotel Amrath all the way. Thank you for such a wonderful stay, I hope we can return again in the not too distant future.
We just arrived home last night after spending 4 nights at this grand hotel! We loved it. Staff was friendly and helpful. Views were awesome. Location is perfect for either walking trips around Amsterdam or taking the train for day trips. The hotel is beautiful and although others commented on the "dark" decor- we thought it was perfect and fit the hotel's majestic feel. Our rooms were clean when we arrived and cleaned each day. Mini fridge was re-stocked daily. Robes were left in the room for use- we used them to go to the sauna down stairs. We were not able to take advantage of the breakfast or restaurant- this was the only small issue we encountered at this hotel- eating breakfast for a quick trip out the door is what we like to do but it was too expensive for a family of four to eat here each day. We did find great breakfast and restaurant places within walking distance of the hotel which was fun to do as well. I would stay here again and would recommend my family/friends to stay here as well. Peter the door man is super! Hi Peter!
"Beautiful old hotel with a stunning view!"
We stayed this hotel for five nights. Not too far from Amsterdam Central station (walking distance). We always book a hotel with a nice view and nice bathtub.The room is small and not inexpensive, but tall ceiling and tall windows help. The bathtub is big! Their refrigerator bar in the room is free! All you can drink! Breakfast buffet has many choices. They bake the best croissant! Make sure to request for the canal view room. You can see the beautiful view in the morning and amazing sunset in the evening!
"Disappointing for a 5 star property"
I am somewhat surprised by the rave reviews of this Hotel. I've stayed at 3 other 5 star Hotels in Amsterdam, and this place felt somewhat lacking in several areas. The initial standard room that we booked only had a shower (in a separate room to the WC), and we were awoken in the middle of the night to rodents crawling around underneath the floorboards near the window. To the Hotel's credit, they upgraded us to a better room when I notified them the following morning, however I still felt very wary of mice or rats for the remainder of our stay. The location of the Hotel is very convenient, very close to the Central Station and Dam Square, additionally the swimming pool/sauna/steam room are very nice for relaxation after a day of wandering around Amsterdam. The Reception and corridors of the hotel are somewhat dark and depressing, I couldn't help but be reminded of the Addams Family Castle during my stay there. Breakfast was OK, but again I expected more from a hotel with 5 star status - there was no egg chef to be seen and the cheese/cold meats section was very limited. I will look to other properties for future stays in this wonderful City.
"A Great Week at the Amrath Hotel"
What an amazing place, built in the 1930's in Art Deco style this fabulous hotel has the perfect location being across the road from Centraal Station and is within easy walking distance from all the delights of central Amsterdam Has a good sized gym, a spa and heated indoor pool The lifts are the only problem being few and far between and hidden deep in the hotel
