“Feels like Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Great value, great charm and comfort in the old the City. The staff are great and very open to assisting. I have stayed there for several years on trips and will return. The location is walking distance from the Central Station sitting elegantly on the Singel Canal. Just a quick walk to the flower market, the Anne Frank house and to Dam Square. Not to mention, Broodje Bert is a great breakfast/lunch spot on the corner.

We were really delighted with the hotel. As soon as we arrived I was struck by the lovely atmosphere, fab decor and delicate scented undertones of cut flowers, orchids and spring bulbs and straight away I had a real sense of being in Amsterdam. Our room was very comfortable, small, but this must be indicative of the wonderful architecture and clever use of space in the traditional tall canal side residences. Very comfortable bed, excellent en suite with lovely L'Occitane products, a further sensory experience. We preferred the offering of teas and coffee in the main reception area on ground floor when we could sit and enjoy the variety of rooms there, in the library, the bar etc as the decoration and comfort were so well appointed and it all seemed much more civilised to the UHT individual pots with instant coffee sachets in bedroom. I loved and appreciated the attention to detail with flowers and plants being abundantly refreshed and also enjoyed the quirky table arrangements. The location was perfect for us to navigate ourselves around the city centre and the joy of being able to walk around, going to and from our hotel made for a perfectly relaxing time. Near attractions, shops, restaurants and bars. Loved it and will return. Nearly forgot to mention the unobtrusive and excellent customer service from every member of staff we encountered. Thanks Hotel Estherea ❤️

My wife and I spent a few nights at Hotel Estherea in February, and we could not have been more pleased. Everything about the hotel was lovely, and the staff was a joy to work with. The location is terrific: we were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. We've already recommended the hotel to friends. And if you can be there next Valentine's Day, you're in for a treat.

Wonderful in all ways, just what we needed for our wedding anniversary treat. Breakfast was delicious with lots too choose, this canal area is ideal for walking and talking and eating and drinking. A charming hotel, beautifully decorated and to top it all we had the best margaritas ever (and we try them whenever we are away) - the staff were very helpful - we will definitely return - love amsterdam!

Lovely hotel, lovely staff and perfect location. We stayed for 4 nights monday to friday and found the hotel great. We had an early morning flight so arrived before ofgical check in bu lt was given our room keys and shown up straight away as a bit of a confussion with hotel staff over payment. Room was beautifuly decorated and the bed was heavenly!! Good size room and bath room. Breakfast was a greay start to the day with everything that you might want included including procecco. The whole hotel was beautiful even the toilets. Great location to visit the different places in amsterdam with trams not to far away for the further visits. Only problem we occured was work that was going on both outside the hotel on the canal and inside the hotel redecorating whixh caused a little noise during the day. If i were to return to amsterdam i would be coming back to this hotel!!

We had stayed here some time back and we always said we would return! Loved all the changes and the expansion. We picked a room with a jetted tub, it was very relaxing after a long day of museums and walking. Wonderful location, Maria's Bar was very convenient and all the staff were great! If we come back to Amsterdam, it will be Hotel Estherea again!

Went here for Valentine's weekend and were simply amazed by everything. Hotel staff were polite and friendly. We arrived early morning before the room was ready and they kindly took our luggage and advised the room would be ready around 3pm. We decided to put the time to good use and visit the Anne Frank museum (go early to avoid huge queues).
Everything is a short walk or tram ride away. The hotel staff told us we could grab a 3-day tram ticket for 16 Euros back from the GVB building (back near the main train station). We got some but ended up walking almost everywhere anyway.
We returned to the hotel at about 2pm and the room was ready. Room was lovely and clean. Felt cosy but not small. 4-poster bed, small chandelier and all the usual chair and dressing table. The decor was fantactic, like a modern, classic, chic finish that we both really liked and it was perfect for romance for Valentines. We felt the room was a little hot for our liking so went and spoke to reception. They advised the the aircon was off for the entire hotel as it was the cold season, however they kindly activated it singularly for our room so we were able to change the temp.
This was really a lovely hotel. My first visit to Dam, not my last, and I don't think I'll be able to stay anywhere else other than Estherea!
