Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam
Beautiful, Wonderful Amrath
We stayed for 3 nights in early July 2007. It was beautiful, wonderful and awe-inspiring. Everything about this hotel is nearly perfect. The restoration is breathtaking (10 years in the making from what I understand, and still not complete throughout the entire hotel). The service is impeccable. Every time we called with a request, somebody was there at our door literally within seconds. The location is perfect. Waterfront city centre yet quiet, and just a 5-10 minute walk from everything (Central Station, Damrak/ Dam Square, Red Light, etc.)
They seemed to be offering introductory rates, so I imagine these will increase substantially as the hotel's name becomes established. If you are going to Amsterdam soon and want a memorable experience, I recommend you do yourself a favor and stay at the Amrath.
Schönes, wundervolles Amrath
Wir verbrachten hier Anfang Juli 2007 drei Nächte. Es war schön, wundervoll und ehrfurchterregend. Dieses Hotel ist in jeder Hinsicht fast perfekt. Die Restauration ist atemberaubend (es wurde 10 Jahre lang gearbeitet, wenn ich es richtig verstanden habe, und das Hotel ist immer noch nicht ganz fertig). Der Service ist tadellos. Immer wenn wir mit einer Bitte anriefen, kam jemand buchstäblich in Sekundenschnelle zu unserer Zimmertür.
Die Lage ist ideal. Im Stadtzentrum am Wasser, trotzdem ruhig und alles ist nur 5-10 Gehminuten entfernt (der Hauptbahnhof, Damrak/ Dam Platz, das Rotlichtviertel usw.).
Die Preise schienen Einführungspreise zu sein, sodass ich mir vorstellen kann, dass sie erheblich steigen werden, sobald sich das Hotel einen Namen gemacht hat. Falls Sie bald nach Amsterdam reisen und ein unvergessliches Erlebnis haben wollen, dann empfehle ich Ihnen, sich selbst einen Gefallen zu tun und im Amrath zu übernachten.
What an experience!
This hotel was recently opened (2 weeks ago) and they are still working out the bugs BUT, it is a beautiful space and the service was tremendous!
It is an old shipping building, a warehouse i think. Full of unique touches like stone carving, stained glass, and iron --stunning! The room was extremely well-appointed with coffees and teas, mini-bar was all complimentary (probably not for long); the bathroom is marble and granite with a huge tub, luxurious towels and Prada toiletries. Speaking of working out the bugs -the new trouser press had no plug attached and the coffeemaker didn't quite fit but those are small issues for a traveler like me.
Doorman service was exemplary. The restaurant service was spotty due to a crowd - and we came to understand that the owner was dining there that night. Their specialty is seafood.
The bar was fun with quite a diverse crowd.
Drawback - no parking or waiting area for cabs.
Once they get the kinks out, this place will be quite the draw!
Even though this hotel has only been opened for a few weeks, the rooms and public areas are furnished to extremely high standards. The bedroom facilities and quality of fixtures are fantastic. The free minibar and wireless LAN is a nice bonus. There is still some rennovation going, notably on the front of the building and the leisure centre, but overall this is a superb hotel. The only negative I have is on the service. They are still working out issues here and it is obvious. They are also very understaffed in the bar and restaurant. Overall I think that one the initial teetheing problems are overcome, this will be an outstanding place to stay.
Great new hotel, superb building
Due to circumstances I had to book a hotel in the city where I live and heard about this new hotel. The location is great, close to Central Station and tourist places like Chinatown and Red Light District. Although the hotel is still doing some renovations, the building is one of the most beautiful buildings I ever saw. A lot of stained glass (on the top floor) and marble, all in a kind of Art Deco style, incredible! Staff was friendly and helpful. It is a truly great new 5 star hotel in Amsterdam, which I can recommend to everyone.
An historical overnight stay
When you are looking for an amazing experience in Amsterdam and willing to pay for history and culture smoothly mixed with luxure and comfort, you should absolutely schedule a weekend in the Amrath Amsterdam.
Last week I booked 2 rooms for a relaxing weekend in Amsterdam with my girlfriend and her parents. We were overwhelmed by this luxurious hotel situated in a fantastic historical building. Though you can feel that they are in a try-out period and practising around a little at some issues (check-in and signing), they absolutely give you the feeling that you are an important guest for them and that they are more than willing to learn from your comments.
We more than enjoyed dinner (timing and taste are great) in a fantastic ambiance. And appreciated the overwhelming service (especially in the hotel bar). Both rooms, though quite different, were in one word "perfect" and it might be only minnor details on which they should pay attention (rooms-equipment was not totally complete yet).
We experienced our overnight stay as historical and it was not only the building which gave us this feeling!
Un hotel nuevo estupendo, en un edificio magnífico
Debido a las circunstancias tuve que reservar un hotel en la ciudad donde vivo y oí acerca de este hotel nuevo. La ubicación es genial, cerca de la estación central y de lugares turísticos, como Chinatown y el Barrio Rojo. Aunque en el hotel siguen haciendo algunas reformas, el edificio es uno de los más hermosos que he visto. Mucho vidrio de color (en la última planta) y mármol, todo en una especie de estilo Art Decó, ¡increíble! El personal era amable y servicial. Es un hotel nuevo de cinco estrellas realmente estupendo en Ámsterdam que le puedo recomendar a todo el mundo.
Tolles, neues Hotel, prächtiges Gebäude
Aufgrund besonderer Umstände musste ich ein Hotel in der Stadt buchen, in der ich lebe und ich hatte von diesem neuen Hotel gehört. Die Lage ist spitze, nahe dem Hauptbahnhof und Touristenattraktionen wie Chinatown und dem Rotlichtviertel.
Auch wenn das Hotel immer noch etwas renoviert wird, ist das Gebäude eins der schönsten, die ich je gesehen habe. Viel Buntglas (im obersten Stockwerk) und Marmor, alles in einer Art Jugendstil, unglaublich! Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es ist echt ein tolles, neues 5-Sterne-Hotel in Amsterdam, das ich jedem empfehlen kann.
No Pool Gym Etc Till December 2007!
My friend and I booked in for 2 nights for 400 € only to find all the "wellness" facilities are not complete. On the trip advisor website there is no mention of this minor detail! On the hotel website there is nothing but a very overlookable mention to the fact at the end of the wellness section. An apology was given at the hotel but no discount.
Bad show for a newly opened "5 star" hotel. Till december it should officially be listed as a "3 star".
