Rated 9.5 in 8 reviews. 12 rooms.


Located between two gentle canals in the heart of the city, Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam boasts a rich history. Successively a convent in the 15th century, a Royal Inn in the 16th century, headquarters of the Dutch Admiralty in Holland's "Golden Age", then Town Hall and in 1966 the setting for the wedding of Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, The Grand has certainly left its mark on the history of Amsterdam.

The Canal House Suites are situated in the former official residences of famous Dutch admirals such as Michiel de Ruyter.
