“A short break...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We arrived at the the hotel for a two day break, the staff were young, helpful, and extremely polite.The hotel, although not cheap, was perfectly placed for a very short stroll in the city centre, the rooms were small but very well equipped, and very clean and warm.Breakfast was a bit pricey,18 Euros for a continental breakfast, but we couldn't be bothered to wak 100 meteres to go elsewhere, so serves us right!

The best thing we did while we were there was hire the hotel bikes, we are both in our 50's but found cycling around the city not only great fun, but also so easy, just ring your bell and everyone moves out the way!!!

We had a lovely time, the hotel was perfect and I would highly recommend it !!!

Lovely room, unfortunately my boyfriend and weren't given a double bed but two single beds put together. Perfect location, beautiful bar, beautiful hotel, I can happily recommend this place to stay. All the little details are wonderful and the l'octaine soap, shampoo shower gel is just a lovely touch. Polite and friendly staff, very professional. Would have gotten five stars if we had a double bed with a room with a better view

Room Tip: Get one with a view of the canal

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for one night only and it was the perfect ending to our 10 days Europe trip. Our stay was extremely comfortable and we really wished we could extend our stay for a few more days but sadly, we were short on time.

The staff was amazing and especially the Hotel Manager was really helpful. He upgraded us to their top suite and it was the most grand suite, I have stayed in so far. You definitely feel like royalty in there.

The location of the hotel is perfect. Hardly 10 minutes walk from the Central station and in walking distance to many local attractions. The breakfast is great value for money as well.

We are planing another trip to Europe in May and this time around, we have full plans of staying longer at this hotel and enjoy Amsterdam even more than last time. :)

Stayed for 3 nights in a deluxe room on the top floor, which was spacious and quiet and the only room with a balcony apparently. Lovely bathroom with jacuzzi bath. Each member of staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The lounge and bar areas are beautifully decorated and it was lovely to stay somewhere not going for the 'Travelodge' type of decor! The location was ideal being close to the centre if you want typical shopping and the Dam Square but also on the edge of the 9 streets in the Jordaan area if you prefer the canals and smaller independent shops and cafes.

Room Tip: Room 519 - deluxe room on the top floor was spacious and very quiet

Location, staff and breakfast are fine. Room was clean but so little and dark. In the morning it was impossible to know what is the weather like , we could not see anything. 4 stars is 1 star too much

Stayed 3 nights end of March at Hotel Estherea. The hotel staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The common rooms are beautifully decorated, and we enjoyed the generous and varied breakfast buffet (worth the price to reserve in advance) as well as drinks in the bar.

The hotel is very well situated, close to the city center but also just far enough away from all the foot traffic. We walked everywhere and especially enjoyed the relative peacefulness of the neighboring Jordaan.

We booked 2 rooms - a canal view (#314) and a family room (#319). Both were well appointed with comfortable beds and nice decor. The canal view room was very quiet at night, but our daughters said they had noise into the wee hours in their room at the back of the hotel which overlooks bars/restaurants on Spui Straat. Their room also sat directly above one of Amsterdam's coffee shops so, unless you enjoy the smell, you would want to keep your windows closed.

All-in-all, it was a lovely stay and one we would repeat in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Rooms on the Singel Canal in the front of the hotel seem much quieter.
