I stayed with my mum in the Grand Hotel Amrath for 3 nights. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!!
The beds and feather duvets are so comfortable (which is great after walking round Amsterdam all day!) with 3 pillows to choose from.
Mini-bar re-stocked every day which was very useful and contained red&white wine, X2 diet&normal coke, X2 sprite, X2 still&fizzy water, tonic water, chocolate bar, plus vodka/gin/wisky minis. We could also use the fridge for our own food/drink as it is fairly big.
The wardrobe is quite small and the hanging area is not long enough for full-length dresses or even long skirts.
The hotel is maze-like but lots of signs so you don't get too lost!
The staff were so helpful with our questions about the attractions in Amsterdam and checked opening times etc. for us. In the room they also supply a pop-up map to take with you, which was invaluable to us as it shows were the hotel is in comparison to everything else! The hotel location is close to the central train station (about 2 mins walk) which is were all the trams can be caught from; and the Dam square is about 7 mins walking distance away - and probably about the same time if you wait and catch a tram.
If you have time - I would strongly advise to take an hour train journey (costs about 17 euros return) to the Hauge (Haag) to visit the Mauritshuis - This is the BEST gallery I have been to, and it is so much quieter than the Galleries in Amsterdam. It holds works such as Vermeer's - 'Girl with the pearl earring' and 'Delft Landscape' ; plus Rembrant's - 'self portrait' (believed to be his last before his death)
