My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Grand Hotel on the recommendation of two separate friends. Unfortunately we weren't able to get a room overlooking the canal, but the side-room we were offered was compact but very comfortable. Service was extremely friendly and helpful and breakfasts were OK - not much choice but we're not into elaborate b/f anyway so it suited us fine. The lobby was stunning - think Moroccan riad - a courtyard filled with palms, yukkas and a tasteful selection of modern paintings and sculptures, with comfy sofas and chairs - perfect for our needs: we'd gone to work on a music/poetry project and the staff were happy for us to plug into the courtyard sockets and sit around all afternoon ordering teas and cake. The hotel is centrally located and has its own (paid) car park though we parked at the top of the hill next to the entrance to avoid the fee.
My only 2 small complaints are the slight smell of drainage that lingered in our bathroom for the time we were there, and the fact the only muesli at breakfast had chocolate bits in (other breakfast cereals even sweeter). Otherwise we got a good deal on the rooms - a 2-day 'Escapade' deal X 2 which included breakfast for 95 euros/night instead of 130 euros/night with breakfast extra. We didn't eat in the restaurant but on two nights I ordered their chestnut mousse thing in the courtyard was to die for.
