Amazing welcome by the doormen. We loved the drinks and the atmosphere in the Cigar Lounge. Unfortunately, we have been disappointed with the service which is not representative of Sofitel Standards and this type of structure's elegance and french "Art de vivre". Indeed, the cigar lounge manager (we guess as the other waitresses were younger) was unnatentive, the service was...

Never before have I been so impressed by a European hotel. If there were a 6 star class then the Sofitel should have it. The moment you arrive the lobby has an absolutely beautiful smell. The staff are brilliant and give you all their attention when you are with them, (it's a shame I need to even put this but...

This hotel is sooooo cute. The layout of the rooms with the stairs and complimentary hermes toilettries just makes it better. The rooms are also super clean. They also have turn down service. The hotel employees are really nice and speaks very well and helpful in booking museums or boat tours. I will definitely book another sofitel hotel again!

We managed a last minute trip to Amsterdam for a long weekend and we're fortunate enough to end up in the Grand. Lovely hotel, walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us, even fracked us down with last minute tickets for the Anne Frank house when we had forgotten to...

After a long flight the warm greeting by name as you walk into the hotel sets the tone for another stay. The short walk from Centraaal Station is pleasant and helps adjust to the time. The butler service included with the junior suite is a welcome help. Arriving at 0700 is was pleasantly surprised that my room was ready. As...

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.
