Our superb downtown location is walking distance of most major landmarks, including the Van Gogh Museum, Royal Palace, Anne Franks House, and the new Hermitage Amsterdam.

We are more than happy to welcome you at The Grand. Please note that there are several ways to arrive at our hotel.

    The easiest way to come to our hotel from Schiphol Airport is by taking a taxi or a limo. The taxi drivers wait in front of the airport and will bring you to the hotel. The charge will be around € 50.

    If you prefer travelling by limo, one of our limo drivers picks you up customs at the airport with your name stated on a sign and brings you in a Mercedes S to our hotel. This is at charge of € 120.

    You could also decide on taking the train, please be informed that the train leaves from the airport and arrives at Amsterdam Central Station. From here it is only a ten minute walk or you could take a taxi.

    Taxis wait in front of Central Station and bring you to the hotel. The fare would be € 10 one way. However it is not possible to arrange a taxi for your pick-up from the station as taxi drivers do not want to make these arrangements with hotels because the chance to not find the guests at the station is too big. You could of course stop a taxi yourself in front of Central Station. For your departure from the hotel we can of course arrange a taxi for you.


    You can also choose for a limo transfer.

    One of our limo drivers picks you up at the train track with your name stated on a sign and brings you in a Mercedes S to our hotel. This is at a charge of € 67,50 per transfer.

    If you decide on walking to our hotel, The Grand is a 10 to 15 minute walk. You need to follow the main street, called Damrak, until you reach Dam square. From there, you need to take "Damstraat",

    after crossing the first bridge in that street; you need to turn right in "Oudezijds Voorburgwal". There you will see after a one minute walk the hotel on your left hand side. This walk will be about 14

    minutes in total.
