Other hotels in Amsterdam may manage to parallel the beauty of Hotel Estherea, but to surpass it would be a feat. What it gives up in size it makes up in opulence. It's like living in a late 19th-century bourgeois mansion, recently redecorated. The hotel was very hard to want to leave even just to explore the city, and I confess that on two of my five evenings I just stayed in. I wasn't the only one. The stunning rooms off of the lobby were peppered with guests, reading, using one of the free computers, contently chatting and enjoying a brandy. The hotel is central enough to be a few minutes' walk from the crazier parts of town (red light district, coffee houses, the Dam), but makes for a perfect refuge on the quiet, graceful Singel canal. They are always delicious snacks out for the guests; a copious breakfast and wireless internet are also offered. The staff are young, friendly and eager to help. A week after I checked out they helped me with a small, Amsterdam-related problem that had nothing to do with the hotel! The maid service is impeccable. Stay here and it is likely to be one your most memorable hotel experiences.
