“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed 6 nights here. It was a very good choice for my mother, as the upper floors are accessible by elevator and the location meant there were lots of restaurants nearby. The staff is exceptional, from front desk to housekeepers. Rooms and public spaces are beautiful and comfortable.

Hotel Estherea is one of the best hotels we’ve ever stayed. For someone like me who traveling a lot this is “loaded” statement, but it is true. There is nothing even remotely negative we can say about this hotel. It sounds unbelievable, isn’t it, but I’d really suggest: if in Amsterdam – stay in this “gem”. Even if this is a bit over your budget – just indulge yourself with its classical luxury. You won’t regret.
Perfect location – hotel situated on canal side
Our room was overlooking canal and it was so beautiful to open the window.
The room, the lobby, the library (yes, they have a library!) and other common areas are decorated absolutely splendidly - gorgeous crystal chandeliers, elegant upholstery, beautiful accessories.
There is area in the lobby were guests could get free refreshing drinks, tea, coffee, cookies, candies – 24/7.
Room is relatively small, but so cozy and elegant! Very clean everywhere.
Hotel provides toiletries from famous and quite expensive French brand “L’Occitane”.
Service is impeccable!
We stayed there only 2 nights, I wish we have more time to enjoy this outstanding hotel.
If there will be 10 starts rating I’d definitely give all 10 starts.

The Hotel Estherea was all I had hoped it would be. Excellent attentive service, beautiful decor, perfect location, delicious breakfast and snacks. Our room overlooked the canal, which was very pretty. i felt like I was living in a fairy tale!

Hotel Estherea is a beautiful gem of a hotel located directly on the Singel Canal. You are staying in a mansion not an impersonal chain hotel. It is within walking distance of almost any place you would need to go in Amsterdam. I booked a room with the full bath, the room was gorgeous, and romantic. We could have spent extra for a room overlooking the canal, but didn't think it necessary. We also prebooked the breakfast, so we paid 13Euros instead of 18Euros. The breakfast was amazing and well worth it, and a great way to start the day. There were some options for a prepaid breakfast also, but with the room type we selected breakfast included wasn't an option. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bar is cute, and the lobby inviting.

Upon check-in they give you an IPad to use with free wifi. There are also two desk top pcs in the lobby along with a printer to print out your boarding passes.

Within easy walking distance is many restaurants on Spui Square, there are restaurants along the Singel Canal, 2 blocks walk to Dam Square. We also walked to the Anne Frank House, around 20 minute walk, and also to the Van Gough Museum 40 minute walk.

We visited the Hotel Estherea from July 13-17, and loved every second of our visit there. The hotel is immaculate and beautifully, classically decorated. Wherever you turn there are lovely and unique touches, beautiful vases, and unusual accessories. We were told by one of the front desk employees that the owner of the hotel (it's been in the same family since it opened) travels around the world to find the special pieces that make the hotel so beautiful.Our room overlooked the canal, and it was fun watching the boats going by right outside of the window day and night. We really enjoyed the free coffee and cookies and pastries available 24/7, as well as big jars filled with candies and treats, all much appreciated after a long day of sightseeing. Another nice touch was that we were given an ipad to use during our stay, and not only did it contain information about the hotel, but lots of information a tourist in Amsterdam might need. The buffet breakfast was sumptuous and delicious. The bathroom contained nice L'Occitane products. The location was wonderful and within walking distance of the museums, shopping, and restaurants, and right near Dam Square. The front desk staff were gracious and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Amsterdam, and I hope to come back one day. It was perfect.

Room Tip: We were in Room 112 and overlooked the canal. Some people find those rooms to be noisy, but we had n...

For more than 35 years I have wanted to return to Amsterdam and on July 4, 2014 we did. This time I had one requirement- to open my window and look upon a canal. After an exhaustive search we came upon the Hotel Estherea! I didn't think it would be possible- but they EXCEEDED my expectations. Canal side, beautiful, accommodating, comfortable, conveniently located, delicious... But the best part was the staff, the summer intern who welcomed us so warmly, the bartender who (except on his night off- Sunday) was the delight of the evening, everyone made our stay even better than our highest expectations.

We plan to return next August

Room Tip: Any room would be great, depending on budget and size requirements.

We have spent three nights in Hotel Estherea Amsterdam. This is a beautiful and confortable hotel in the center of the city. It faces onto a lovely canal. Services are very good and the breakfast is delicious.
