“Great location and very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We stayed here for just 1 night and i would wish that I stayed here longer. The staff was friendly and very polite. The hotel was very clean and the view from our room was the best. I would suggest that you get a canal view to get a better experience of Amsterdam. The location was also good. We just walked from the central station station. It's like a 10-15 minute walk but it's not a boring walk since you will be passing through busy streets then once you reach the canal then you're already near the hotel. If you want to try the hop on hop off then there is also a stop at the back of the hotel. There are also many restos around the area. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this excellent hotel. Beautifully decorated, courteous staff, good breakfast and a ideal location for getting to know the city. Round the corner from Dam Square, a short walk to a good selection of restaurants and not too far from the cultural delights of Museum Square.
Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again.

Having travelled to Amsterdam for the first time to celebrate my friends birthday, this beautiful hotel was central for everything and an absolute delight and a joy to stay in. The young bartender that was on while we were there from the 5th was a star! The Estherea Hotel with its wonderful ambience, comfort, good food and welcoming, very caring and highly attentive staff make it an absolute must to visit. We loved our stay and wish we had stayed longer but hope to return again later in the year.

Hotel Estherea is located very conveniently on Singel in a pair of canal side houses. From the sober facade it is hard to imagine the charm within.
The aquarium located inside the foyer tips the first time visitor to the careful management and decoration of the hotel. It is the most fascinating aquarium I've ever seen...most collected specimens are from Indonesia...watch for a while and you'll see all sorts of things moving around in there.
On our recent visit, our second, we took one of the suites on the lowest floor. The room is a jewel box...If a suite is available...take it...the few euros more will soon be forgotten....the memories; never. The standard rooms are very comfortable as well, of course.
The public spaces invite lingering over coffee, tea or something from the elegant bar.
There are other high end hotels in Amsterdam and they are good too, none are the Estherea

Room Tip: If a suite is available you should at least have a look...well worth the extra euros.

We stayed at the hotel for a weekend in February. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the train station and situated on one of the canals. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so we ventured out into Amsterdam. The weather was awful, raining continuously and very windy, however the hotel kindly provided large umbrellas. When we checked into our room on the third floor, it was quite small but very cosy and I loved the decor. However the room next to us and walls outside were having some serious DIY with a hammer drill. We called down to reception and they advised that the renovations would be a further 2 hours and offered us either a free breakfast in the morning or a room change. We opted to change room and were not disappointed.

The reception staff are lovely, the free hot chocolate is delicious and the hotel is in a brilliant location, perfect for exploring Amsterdam. I would highly recommend the hotel.....

Fantastic service, food and a special mention for the cocktails in Maria's Bar. We stayed in a beautiful canal view room on the second floor. Booked direct with the hotel to receive reduced breakfast price of 13 euro and late checkout, 2.00 pm. The champagne available at breakfast to make bucks fizz was a nice touch. The hotel is centrally located with most attractions within walking distance. Would recommend Haesje Claes restaurant near by but not d'Vijff Vlieghen, overpriced mediocre food and wine. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will return.

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a whim in January and it's got to be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. It's just beautiful! I recommend getting an executive room, we stayed in one with a gorgeous four poster bed, quirky chandelier, huge bath (fits two!).
The bar is great... very pink, but in a classy way. And the free hot chocolate is definitely amazing. We didn't try the food as we wanted to experience the city, but I can say that the cocktails are yummy.
It's also in a great location, on a canal, five minutes from all the action in the city centre.

Basically... just go there, it's great.

Room Tip: We had the blue room, it's fab
