For lovers of history, hopeful romantics, and jet-setting travelers alike, a visit to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam is an absolute must.

Formerly the town hall, the hotel holds the last Mayor's old office - now a suite baring his name.
Step across the threshold of a building whose past is riddled with stories of intrigue, romance, and mystery. Originally the site of two convents - St. Cecily's Convent at the northern part of the property and St. Katherine's Convent to the south – this address came into being in the 15th century, when women vastly outnumbered men and Amsterdam was a city of monasteries and convents, a place where God’s graces gave way to hearts in search of holiness.

Your head will spin as you contemplate the trials and tribulations secreted away in the walls that now contain this majestic hotel. So prepare yourself… or let your thoughts strike a more upbeat note and simply enjoy being surrounded by a heady sense of history ensconced in present day luxury.

177 rooms – including 52 suites – grace the interiors of Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam. Celebrated authors, actors, ambassadors and heads of state have been welcomed here since 1578. Some suites bear the names of visitors from the past: the Willem van Oranje, and Willem de Vijfde Suites, and the Maria de Medici Suite.

Experience Amsterdam like never before and become a part of history yourself at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam.

Just perfect

I've stayed in many Amsterdam hotels, but this one is the best. Great location in quiet place but straigt in the city center (2 minutes from the Dam square). Spacious rooms with nice design, amazing beds and Hermes toiletteries. Thanks to KiwiCollection we were upgraded to the suite with canal view. There is also a very nice spa zone with swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam, and also very big list of different treatments. Great breakfast (they can cook everything you want) and super complaisant staff. Highly recommended
