Stayed for business but forgot that this hotel offers all to forget about your "duties". Very nice hotel building, attentive staff all around the hotel and best food ever. So, do business and experience leisure and of course pleasure at this great hotel! Well done.

The Grand is truly an experience. The staff was was most helpful. It rained almost the entire time we were there and the doormen were always ready with an umbrella. The front desk was helpful, and with one exception the concierge was great. One nice man at the concierge desk packaged a large mailing for me and sent it home....

Truly an oasis of calm and elegance amidst the bohemian central city. Extraordinary service...or maybe as expected for the dear price. Outer facing room was a bit noisy from the street below during the Netherlands world cup victory. How's this for service...I broke a shoe lace just before a big meeting. The concierge had a small supply of new laces...

We stayed one night at the hotel as part of our Tauck river cruise as it is their "official" hotel in Amsterdam at present.

The Grand is so tucked in on one of the very old streets along the canal that you wouldn't know it is there... and our driver couldn't find it with GPS. It is nice and clean, has nice amenities and the location is perfect for heading out on foot to see the old part of the city. I would caution...

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.
