"Charming hotel with a pool"
I have stayed in this a Hotel a few times , a charming hotel very convenience to downtown area . For river cruise , restaurants and museums . I can have a quick Asian noodle meal with roast duck just a 30 second walk !! The concierge very helpful , I need a car for a meeting , I was surprised to be picked up in a MayBach , what a treat . The room is nice , not as spacious as I expected. . The best part is the pool , a rarity in such hotel location . . We had a banquet for 150 people there one evening , the service and food wonderful there .
Not a bad hotel staff are friendly and nice and hotel was in a great location! Was our first time to the dam. But we thought bring close to the road would be bad but wasn't a problem! Not 5* as staff did wonder into our rooms when we were in late in the evening which was rude and felt a bit invaded but might have just got unlucky! Otherwise great!
"Just as good as I remembered"
I last visited Amsterdam at exactly the same time 5 years previously and wondered if this hotel would be as good as I remembered. It was. Great location by the station (10 mins on train from airport) and within walking distance of everything. The hotel is fabulous with beautifully equipped rooms (Nespresso machine & free mini bar), good spa and very friendly, helpful staff. On the first night in the bar we asked for an expresso martini and our server, Alicia, produced the cocktail confessing it was her first attempt and if we didn't like it, she would not charge us. I have enjoyed cocktails in some superb bars in many countries and would put this in my top 3! Loved the twist of chocolate around the rim of the chilled cocktail glass.
"Loved this hotel, continuing love affair with Amsterdam"
Even though I've been to Amsterdam a few times this was my first stay at the Grand Amarth, one of my friends chose it and it was the right choice. Great location, literally across the road from the train station. 2mins walk from all the shops and bars without being close enough to be bothered with noise. Smoking rooms are also available. The building is outstanding just unbelievable, lovingly kept in its almost original state the architecture of the building is a must see. Lots of features from its original purpose as a customs/shipping building. All rooms were really spacious, the ceiling height alone is something to behold, the electric luxurious curtains my friend and I appreciated.... That's right curtains... Maybe it's a girl thing. Lots of wardrobe space and the bathroom also well equipped and spacious. It was a birthday trip so we'd arranged a cake for our friend it was supplied with champagne which was lovely. Staff were lovely and very friendly, nothing was too much to ask, rare in this day and age to find amazing service. They printed our return boarding cards without fuss, notified our car service when we needed it, just lovely. If you've read my other reviews you'll know that I say it as I see it and it was a great stay. Amsterdam was just as great as the last time I'd visited, we went to the Marilyn exhibition, Sara's pancake house is another find as well as all the usual haunts. I'll definitely return to this wonderful hotel and that's not just the coffee shops talking :)
"What more could you ask for'"
Stayed here for an extra night after a European River Cruise. Price was a dam sight cheaper than anything else in the city. Great service and the room was huge. FREE MINIBAR! I have now booked several of my clients into this hotel and had nothing but great feedback. Top location incredible architecture and a deep deep bath. What more could you ask for. I am definitely going back again.
