The Hotel Estheréa is a beautiful, charming, comfortable and well-situated boutique hotel on the Singel canal. When we arrived earlier than expected at 6 in the morning, we were greeted warmly by the hotel staff and treated to hot chocolate and coffee while our room was prepared. Throughout the day, guests can relax in cozy and quiet lounges on the ground floor where newspapers in several languages and two computers are available for free as are numerous hot drinks, cookies and croissants. The lovely dining room serves a buffet breakfast only. The selection is very good, and the food is delicious. The bar area is also available for a less pricey continental breakfast. Our room 1404 looking out over the canal was beautifully and luxuriously decorated, the bed and duvet were very comfortable and the bathroom was large, with two sinks and a combined shower and tub. Note that the first room we were shown had a tiny bathroom. Since we were staying 9 nights, we asked for a room with a larger bath and were promptly given one with no problem. All areas of the hotel are immaculate and easily accessible by elevator except for the exercise room and common toilet areas which are one level below and reachable only by a slightly winding staircase of about 8 steps. The hotel staff were unfailingly polite and helpful. When asked, the staff will call you a taxi which almost always arrives in less than 5 minutes. The only negatives of this hotel are some of its rooms with bathrooms that are extremely small and the somewhat unsightly construction in process on a canal bridge near the hotel which some people might also find a little noisy. All in all, we could not have enjoyed our stay more at this lovely and reasonably priced hotel and would not think of staying any place else in Amsterdam.
