“A taste of the golden era”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

When we arrived at the hotel, we were initially told that they did not expect us until the following day. After they sorted out their mistake, the rest of our stay had been very enjoyable. The breakfast was very good. They also gave us a free breakfast as compensation. The hotel was very clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. A room with canal view was worth the money. Location was good in that restaurants and many city attractions were closeby. It was a pleasure to stay in such a magnificent period building.

Exactly what we had hoped for when booking a few nights away in Amsterdam. Especially grateful for the upgrade to a deluxe with jacuzzi bath. We also really enjoyed the complimentary coffee, tea and delicious cakes on return after a busy day walking. The staff were all very friendly and keen to help. We will be recommending this hotel to friends and family.

A truly excellent example of what a boutique hotel should be. Great character, helpful staff, great bar and a very comfortable room. A small tip - If you are staying the weekend, the dining room is quite small so don't arrive down for breakfast 15 minutes before the catering service ends or you'll end up queuing for your buffet breakfast. Don't despair. If this happens to you, slip around the corner to Le Pain Quotidien for an outstanding brunch.

Room Tip: If space is important to you, it's worth asking for (or paying more for) a larger room, as the r...

The Orange Suite was very nice, successfully mixing old with new. The generous layout provides a relaxing atmosphere and compensates for the ground level location. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Amsterdam near one of the Trachten.

I chose the Estherea for a brief visit to Amsterdam to see the Rembrandts in the newly reopened rijksmuseum. My choice was made entirely on the basis of the reviews on trip advisor. What a great find!! The hotel is perfectly located with many attractions and great restaurants in easy walking distance. A short walk from the Dam Square and shopping, easy tram access and lovely views from both sides. My room 417 on the Spuistraat side was beautiful. A canopy bed, beautiful big bathroom with great light, a huge tub and a robe and towels that were thick and luxurious. A safe in the closet was free and all the amenities wanted were available. Wifi worked well. The view out my window was lovely and with the windows open there was a bit of lively street noise but no problem at all with windows closed. I chose to have breakfast at the hotel for convenience sake bit was ample and tasty. If you have time there are plenty of places to eat within a few meters of the hotel. I had dinner at Lucius a seafood restaurant around the corner from the hotel bit was superb! Make a reservation as it got very crowded even on a Monday night. The second night I ate at the Five Flies restaurant. I thought it overpriced and not nearly as good as I had expected based on its reputation. It was just OK. Lots of other restaurants all around and a vibrant cafe scene.

The hotel is immaculate. Lovely lobby with bar, library, comfortable sitting room and coffee and snacks at all hours.

The hotel staff is warm, welcoming, and always helpful. Just a great front desk.

In every way this is a terrific hotel. If you are in Amsterdam you couldn't do better.

I used to stay at the Pulitzer but always found it a bit cold. I won't go back there after having been at the Estherea.
