The Library ‘Or’ is located in the beautiful lobby of The Grand, directly at the entrance of the hotel.
The Library ‘Or’ has a rich collection of books about local culture, architecture and French “savoir-faire”. This library, graced by a beautiful, eye-catching lamp with precious gold leaf inlay, is the ideal place to become acquainted with art and culture, and to relax in peaceful surroundings.
The Library ‘Or’ was designed by interior designer Sybille de Margerie, who drew inspiration from the colours of typically Dutch elements, such as the dark-grey street stones known as ‘klinkers’ and the deep, rich colours of the Amsterdam flower market. Dotted around the library are comfortable sofas and deep armchairs, where one can relax or partake in The Grand Afternoon Tea.
