We have felt very well taken care of and thus could have a complete relaxed get away. The first night we had dinner at Bridges, a wonderful experience. The (temporary) Grand Beach the next day was a nice alternative for having dinner and relaxing outside. The celebration of my birthday in the morning was a feast. Despite the fact that there weren't many guests around, the staff made great effort to make our stay unforgettable.

Dear Mr K., Ms G., It is wonderful to read that you had such a pleasant time in our hotel. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this most encouraging feedback! It is also highly satisfying to read that you benefited from our location within Amsterdam's historic heart and that you so enjoyed your dinner in Bridges. I shall be sharing your kind words with the entire team, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Emmy Stoel General Manager

David G. Couples - 08/09/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Front of House staff are excellent, and are clearly a credit to Zsa Zsa Zanolie, who went out of her way to ensure that our holiday went perfectly. This was so appreciated by us. Niels Essink and his Concierge Team deserve special mention. They are essential to the continuing success of the hotel, and are one of the reasons why our stay was better than stays we have enjoyed in other luxury hotels. Guests will return to hotels which have an outstanding concierge team. The welcome that we received was warm and much-appreciated, particularly from the Head Butler, Mauricio de Aguiar Silva. Breakfast service was excellent, and it was great to see Lilian and Luca again, who were so welcoming. Breakfast is a very difficult meal to serve well, but this team has got it very well organized indeed. We also really enjoyed having a drink at the bar with the very knowledgeable and expert bartender, Dennis. But to single out individuals does not give a true picture. All of the staff with whom we had contact were friendly, correct and welcoming, and are the reason that we will return to this hotel.

Dear Mr and Mrs G., I hope this finds you well. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to our survey. It is very satisfying to read that you were (once again) so delighted with your stay: as usual I shall make sure to pass on your praise to Zsa Zsa, Niels, Dennis and everyone else who contributed to making your stay so enjoyable. Particularly at this moment in time, we truly appreciate your loyalty to our hotel and your kind words. I hope that we will welcome you back soon to your ''home away from home''. In the meantime, please receive my warm regards and wholehearted thanks. Sincerely, Emmy Stoel General Manager

This was an epic stay, it started with an upgrade to a suite and the warm welcome back to The Grand. The staff was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The welcome drinks in the suite, the lunch in the restaurant and the pre dinner drinks in the bar again were of a high standard. Being able to use the pool (private) was great as well. After a superb breakfast we got a tour of the hotel and checked out looking forward to our next stay!

Despite the current situation due to Covid-19, the hotel continues to provide highest quality accommodation and services, with staff making the extra efforts to make guests feel safe and comfortable.

Camilla Couples - 10/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

From the moment we arrived it was the most amazing experience. Started with the complimentary drink! It was my birthday and we were given a room upgrade. The room was lovely and had some little sweets and a personal note. As soon as we got in the room, the staff brought us a cake. We also booked into the spa, which we had to ourselves due to corona measures. We hired bikes and the concierge explained everything to us clearly. We also dined at the new outdoor beach club which was lovely. All in all, one of the best holidays i have ever had with a huge part of that being the hotel and the service.

Dear Ms M., What a heart-warming review. Thank you very much for taking the time to write it. Furthermore, it is great to read that we were able to make your special occasion even more special -that was our mission, after all. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.
