We stayed 4 nights in October 2012. This was the first hotel I browsed on the web and I had such a good impression then that I booked it right away. My instinct prooved me right!
The hotel is luxurious, and grand in every way. Our deluxe room was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, with a king bed, large sofa, and little table in addition to the desk. The bathroom was ample and impeccable. We did not have a canal view, but all the better because our corner room was quiet and far from the elevator.
Staff always greeted us with a smile and was very helpful. They had taken note of my email making reference to our wedding aniversary and had left us a lovely gift in our room upon arrival. Thanks for such nice token!
We enjoyed having coffee/tea (there is a 24/7 complimentary coffee/tea machine in the lobby) every night while observing the fantastic acquarium in the lobby. Everything is of superb quality, tidy and clean.
Location is excellent: facing Singel Canal -a guarantee of quietness - but having everything around the corner on Spuistraat - restaurants, bars, coffeeshops. Shopping area is about 3 or 4 blocks away.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, but instead had a coffe and croisant at Café Hoppe, a top 10, a couple of blocks away.
Amsterdam is great for walking (or riding!). Watch out for intense bike traffic when crossing the street! We enjoyed the museums and the canals - a cruise is a must.
We also hopped on a train and visited The Hague, which is only 50 minutes away. It is a beautiful city, quieter than Amsterdam.
Overall, our stay in Netherlands was amazing! I'd love to come back and definitely would choose Estherea over and over again.
