Spending the night at the Grand Hotel Alkmaar means that you are spending the night in a building with an impressive history.
This municipal monument was built by Cornelis Hendrik Peters – who was to become Government Architect and apprentice to the renowned architect Pierre Cuypers - in 1877, to house the Alkmaar post office and the ‘Land Registry Office and Office of Mortgages’.
A building with a central purpose, which was meant to symbolise the prosperity of a rising city.
The post office already moved to a different location in 1916, but to this day the elegant neo-gothic building never lost any of its original lustre. It is a building that suits the Grand Hotel Alkmaar.
History is repeating itself: with the coming and going of guests to the hotel, restaurant, and grand-café it still remains a central location in Alkmaar.
