I recently stayed at the Ambassade hotel with my 3 college age children. We picked the hotel because of many good reviews and because of it's location. It is in a nice area of town, one block off a main shopping street but a classic canal zone neighborhood. The hotel consists of series of linked row houses that have been... More

Loved this hotel to it's perfect location to the service of the staff to the amenities in the rooms. The hotel is VERY quiet. We had a room facing the canal/street and the neighborhood is so quiet, noise was never a problem. Need anything? Ask the front desk and they will take care of it from tickets to the museums...

Spent a two night mini-break in this hotel and can endorse other reviewers' comments. Service is excellent and just the right level of helpfulness, friendly but not overbearing. Staff are very knowledgeable and referred us to two very good restaurants: Luden for a cosy basic meal, and Zuid Zeeland for something more upscale; provided us with tickets for van Gogh... More

Compared to a large chain hotel, this was awesome. Great location, quiet at night, fabulous staff who all speak immaculate English, wonderful canal views. Fantastic breakfast (no lunch or dinner here, like many boutique European hotels), big and comfortable rooms, nothing too much trouble for the staff. Ok, it is quite expensive, but worth it in my opinion. If I... More

One of the main reasons we chose this hotel was because it seemed to be so perfectly located for what we wanted to do during our four days in Amsterdam. The Herengracht is absolutely beautiful..........and this hotel is actually a series of gorgeous 17th century houses looking right onto the canal. One of the special treats for us was to... More

We had a wonderful room overlooking the canal, where we immediately felt at home. Comfortable and charming, you could be living in Amsterdam. Very quiet, far from Dam Square and crowds. No city noise at night, just the very occasional car passing. And yet, it was not far from anything. The historic part of Amsterdam is big enough to be... More

This was my second stay at the Ambassade and am sure I will return. The location can't be beat. Had a canal front room and felt like I was a local living a very charmed life. Wonderful breakfast room and very attentive staff that goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. Great recommendations for restaurants... More

This is a four star hotel located in the city-centre overlooking the Heerengracht. Despite its central location it is very quiet at night even on the ground floor where we took one of the junior suites. This was imaginatively designed as a sort of mini-maisonette with sleeping area upstairs. The whole set up was spotlessly clean and the service was... More

We spent 5 nights at the Ambassade. From the minute we checked in, the service was outstanding. They meet us at the front door and immediately took charge of our large and heavy luggage. We were quickly checked in and escorted up to our room. The canal view was lovely, but it did get a little noisy on the weekends... More
