If only the best will do, look no further than Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam. This five-star hotel is luxurious from the word go. It’s housed in a time-stamped building, which started life as a monastery and lodgings for royal visitors, before becoming Amsterdam’s City Hall for hundreds of years. The interiors are as grand as you might expect. Think marble floors, lofty ceilings and huge courtyards. It’s not tired and old fashioned at all – contemporary touches have been added over the years to keep up with the times.
Rooms here offer a cosy solace away from the buzz of the city. They’re spacious, dressed in a palette of neutral tones with splashes of colour and texture, like a blue velvet armchair or an exposed brick feature wall. They all come with a flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, and a private bathroom with a walk-in rain shower, complimentary Hermès toiletries, and a hairdryer. You’ve also got the choice of city, courtyard or canal views – what a treat!
You’ll find the Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam in the heart of town, on the outskirts of the Red Light district. This puts you between two pretty, bridge-lined canals, and just a five minute walk from Dam Square. The Nine Streets shopping district and the museum square are both within a 15-minute stroll, too. The hotel’s also got plenty to offer onsite, if you don’t fancy heading out. There are no fewer than four restaurants to pick from, and you’ll also find a spa with an indoor pool and a gym.
