I have stayed in several Sofitels before and they have not disappointed. The Legend The Grand Amsterdam is even a cut above other Sofitels. The hotel is in the old Amsterdam city hall, the location is very central for all the main areas of central Amsterdam. It is in a very busy tourist part of Amsterdam (just down from the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017

The Grand Hotel is located right in the middle of Amsterdam, in a building steeped in history, as it used to be Amsterdam's City Hall. Upon arrival to the hotel, we were instantly impressed with the building, as we wandered through the majestic courtyard. The receptionist was very friendly, and the treatment I got as an Accor platinum member was...

This hotel is situated in close proximity to Dam square and in the Red Light district, however, all the chaos and craziness seems to slip away when you enter through into the courtyard. Driving there can be a little tricky, so use the GPS. The valets were super, the reception staff were really great. They saw that we were not...

Grand Sofitel Amsterdam. I've travelled to Amsterdam a dozen+ times. This is by far the most elegant and best located luxury hotel - depending of course on your needs. This is not a "party" hotel or have loud, late bar patrons, but when it comes to luxury and a top notch staff - there is no equal. It is conveniently...

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at the Grand. What an excellent and delightful hotel!!

The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring and enjoying this...

Peaceful, hidden hotel in the city. We had two rooms different types and they were both great. Staff were very helpful and kind. It was such a relief to check in here as we had left another hotel in Amsterdam that was terrible losing a lot of money in the process but it was so worth it. Will stay here...

Fantastic hotel in the centre 5 mins from Dam square. I know why they call it a Michelin star restaurant now. Because everything tasted of rubber. Left some bits in my room and emailed the hotel to forward these on, with no reply from them.

This place is amazing. I was treated a king, the food was great. The room was very modern for the location and building. The location is the best in the city. I was a block from the dam square and a block from the red Light district.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
