A masterful blend of contemporary luxury and rich, storied history has earned Sofitel Amsterdam the Grand a very special rank among Amsterdam hotels. Centrally located amid the convents and monasteries of centuries past, the hotel's historic energy and lavish reputation as a 16th century royal guest house sets it apart from other nice hotels in Amsterdam.

Now widely accepted as one of the best hotels in Amsterdam, this building offers a splendid array of amenities and an elegant sanctuary in the busy streets of the city center. The accommodations are irrefutably high-end, including unmatched personal service that ranges from morning newspaper delivery to personal butler service. From the suites to the meeting rooms to the courtyards, exclusivity and privacy are emphasized. In turn, this venue is a fantastic choice for business travel, a romantic getaway or simply a welcome alternative to the loud, carnivalesque character of this bustling urban center.
