“Best hotel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This boutique hotel is the best. The beautiful, large room was perfect.We stayed five nights and would definitely return if visiting Amsterdam again. The hotel staff is knowledgeable, helpful with great recommendations fo restaurants and city travels. Grea location within a 4 minute walk to the Dam Square and about a 10 minute walk to the main streets. Take tram 9 to the Jewish Historical Museum and Tram 5 to the Rijks and Van Gogh Museum. We walked it but if you are tired don't hesitate to hop on the tram. Quiet neighborhood at night and wonderful restaurants around the corner from the hotel.

We stayed just one night but the room was clean and very well priced. We rented their scooter and drove all over the city!! It sure beats walking and even that didn't cost too much! The staff was friendly and we would definitely stay here again.

My Husband and I stayed in this hotel for our honeymoon. We wanted to find a place that was luxurious, romantic, and unique -- Hotel Estherea is exactly that! Every corner of the hotel is just beautiful. Our room was luxurious, spacious, comfortable, and clean. The staff was charming and helpful. The complimentary coffee was a delightful bonus. I can't comment on breakfast, as we opted to go out to eat in the mornings. The location is also a dream, not in the center of touristy madness. We absolutely loved our stay here and didn't want to leave! I highly recommend this hotel to couples looking for a romantic getaway.

I stayed in this lovely, old world (with all modern amenities) hotel for three days. We got a canal view room overlooking the quiet neighborhood which was centrally located--we walked to the flower market, Dam Square, and Rembrandt's house. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a quiet bar, library and sitting room. I will stay here again, without question, if I take another trip to Amsterdam!

Hotel Estherea is the perfect hotel to explore Amsterdam. Centrally located with comfortable rooms, this hotel provides personal touches such as a coffee machine in the lobby with 6 different
coffee options,bakery treats,a Koi pond, adequate fitness center and a charming little bar area. The lobby staff were extremely helpful with directions and making dinner reservations at local restaurants. I would definitely stay here again!

I LOVE this hotel. Beautiful, great location, friendly staff. It's perfect...please don't ever change! The rooms are small but beautifull decorated. The lobby is intimate, casual and very cozy, especially on those cold Amsterdam nights.

Room Tip: Splurge and get a room facing the canal. It may cost a bit more but everytime you look out the wind...

We booked this hotel for a stopover on the way to the UK and it was an excellent choice. The location is wonderful. The hotel has an unusual continental feel that is full of character and so different from the business hotel chains. Little touches like the magnificent aquarium in the lobby, the lovely public spaces and the complimentary tea and coffee machine all contribute to the atmosphere. The staff are especially friendly and helpful. The location is very central but a world away from the tacky tourist areas. The only downside is that our room was rather small, but it was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. At first glance this hotel looks expensive, but the comfort, location and atmosphere make the price worthwhile.
If you are coming from the main station take a taxi rather than walking, the walk is further than it looks on the map and the taxi is not expensive.
