Hotel Sofitel Legend The Grand is no ordinary hotel; it indeed is a historic site of Amsterdam. Originally, there were two convents here – St. Cecily’s and St. Katherine’s. The hotel was built on this very site and the structures of these ancient convents are still very much visible like the tiny tower on the rooftop of the hotel which was a part of St. Cecily’s Convent.
You can choose from the wide variety of rooms and suites available here which give you different levels of luxury. These lavishly furnished accommodations come with every possible amenity that you can think of. For instance, the Imperial Suites boast of a steam room, freestanding bathtub and butler service throughout the day.
The hotel has daily private tours of the hotel itself and can arrange royal breakfast and private dinners for you with much sophistication. You could explore the historic part of the city of Amsterdam in a horse driven carriage too.
