    A real 5 star experience
    What an amazing hotel! From start to finish the Sofitel Grand did not disappoint. Absolutely beautiful from the outside with never ending Christmas lights & trees, the theme continuing impressively throughout the entire hotel. The staff were fantastic & the room was absolutely gorgeous, set out over 2 floors & the comfiest bed. Breakfast was simply wonderful & we always took the opportunity to take our time and enjoy the opportunity to relax & discuss plans over breakfast.

    Very good 8.0
    A good hotel in the downtown Dam Square area.
    A great hotel to stay art but hard to return to by cab late in the evening after supper as cab driver had to final call the hotel for street access. Location is a bit to close to a noisy area at the front of the hotel. It is better to face the courtyard or the rear canal. Access is also better by foot to turn left and take the footbridge to the right through the alley and turn right on a much quieter and nice route to the Dam Square area. Excellent breakfast but surprised the Orial menu was so small in choice especially since we were at the hotel for 9 days in total.

    An Elegant Blast!
    Very expensive and very much worth it. Top notch, excellent location. Perfectly elegant and just to the right of the property is one of the best "coffee" shops in the city. Close proximity to the red light district but you'd never know it. Very safe. Splurged on the suite--wow. The "butler" service was just ok. We only saw him twice--didn't make himself that available. Food was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
