Having had a fantastic stay at the Estherea in Jan 08 we decided to return to the hotel for our honeymoon from the 20th Feb 09. I had e-mailed the hotel to let them know why we were visiting but despite this we were given room 412 - which has two single beds with horrible rubber mattress covers- hardly the... More

We stayed here for Valentine's Day weekend. The hotel is conveniently located. The rooms are clean and well-appointed by Amsterdam standards. The staff are friendly, professional, and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a convenient base for sightseeing and walking around in the Western Canal district.

Husband and I stayed at the Hotel Estherea on the last weekend in January. The hotel is very well appointed on the Singel Canal. There are plenty of bars (Harry's Bar for cocktails) and good restaurants (Caprese is one of them) within a five minute walk. The area where the hotel is situated seemed to us to be very safe...

Just back from this fabulous hotel to celebrate hubby's 50th birthday. They even remembered (3 months) it was his birthday by giving him an unexpected and generous gift. Everything from the room to serving breakfast was just perfect. Perfect location for Anne Frank House, Royal Palace and clothes shopping as well as short distance from recommended restaurants. Railway station isn't... More

Simply the BEST location for the canal neighborhoods, and close to all the hubub of the old town. Walking distance to Reiksmuseum and all markets. Fantastic bakeries close by. Fantastic coffee shops close by(Cofee and Tee).... More

The staff are extremely friendly and accomodating at this hotel. Our flight had been changed without notice and we arrived at the hotel 3 hours earlier than expected. We managed to check into our room prior to mid-day with no fuss, this was a first for us! The hotel is beautiful and very relaxed and is perfectly situated for exploring... More

We have been to Amsterdam before and stayed in very basic hotels so decided to go for something a bit more upmarket this time. We really liked the hotel and were lucky enough to be given one of the bigger rooms. It was clean and in really good order. We also really liked the location - its not to far... More

We stayed for three nights, and found this to be a clean, plush and comfortable hotel. We stayed in Room 512 which was on the top floor (in the roof), the room was just right for two people, not huge, but well arranged so we didn't feel 'squeezed' as you can feel so often in some places. It had a... More

We booked this hotel last minute and got a great rate. It was in a nice, central location along a canal. The rooms are very nice--spacious for Europe, with large bathrooms. The staff was very helpful, and there is free hot chocolate in the lobby at all times. It was nice to bring a cup with as we headed out... More
