Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff in this great hotel. Rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. Free tea and coffee (and lovely cakes!) in the lounge were much appreciated by tired travellers. Really convenient for all the major attractions, but in a lovely quiet location. Restaurant recommendations very helpful. I booked a canal view room which was... More

Delightful hotel, with a superb location. The room was a little small, but v. cleverly designed in order to make best use of the space. The staff could not have been more helpful, to the extent of printing a train timetable out for me for a journey I needed to make the following day.

This was our first time in Amsterdam and my wife and I were celebrating our 50th birthdays. We were hoping to find a hotel in a quiet area where we could relax in between sightseeing but also be near to the centre so not too far to travel. The Hotel Estherea met the requirements perfectly. A reasonably sized family run... More

We are a group of 11ladies and have just returned from a weekend in Amsterdam. We chose the Hotel Estherea by the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel is beautiful and the tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cookies available 24hrs in the lobby was a real bonus. The location is excellent, very quiet picturesque canalside location but only...

We booked this hotel for two nights after reading reviews from several sites. The hotel certainly lives up to the positive comments. The rooms, although our room was a little dated in decor, are clean and comfortable. It was large enough for a coffee table and two chairs and had a canal view. The staff were friendly and gave an...
