“Enchanting centrally located gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Stayed for 2 nights as a couple. Unexpectedly ugraded on arrival to an enormous suite. All staff were very friendly and welcoming and their helpfulness was unstinting throughout our stay. Hotel used IPads as compediums which was an interesting innovation. The hotel lobby and bar area are very uniquely decorated and give a very cosy feeling. The location is very central and the hotel recommendations on restaurants for dinner was very much appreciated.

We wanted a Central hotel for a one night stay before boarding our cruise ship and choose Hotel Estherea. From the moment the friendly and helpful staff checked us in it has been absolutely wonderful. Everything about this hotel is top rate. Their attention to detail, the sumptuous decor, the comfort of the rooms - what more praise can I give. Definitely among a couple of the best hotels worldwide we've ever stayed in.

While this hotel has been fully renovated in the dutch tradition, we found both of our two rooms very small. The hotel is well located and staff were helpful. They have all you will need in terms of push bikes or scooters and a nice bar and breakfast area. It was the size of the rooms that was the problem, tiniest of any we came across.

Room Tip: Worth asking whether the rooms are all the same size or not.

Just got back from a three night stay at this hotel and it was excellent. Every thing about this hotel is good.There are a lot of hotels that are cheaper than this one but you get what you pay for and it is worth the extra money.close to all the tourist attractions.Room very clean bed very comfy staff were friendly.I can find faults with most hotels but not here.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the front are more expensive but are worth it for the view.

This hotel made our stay. We had several rooms and I really enjoyed our lovely room overlooking the Singel Canal. Even though the street was below, it was very quiet. The room was well appointed, although the bathroom was a bit small. The lobby had a charming little bar and there are little complimentary treats in the lobby for guests. I frequently enjoyed the expresso machine.The breakfast room is quaint and the food is good. The front desk staff were attentive and friendly. Every dinner recommendation was excellent. Everything is within walking distance. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the canal.

I've just got back from this hotel, stayed for three nights. This hotel is in a nice location in a lovely area of Amsterdam but within walking distance to most of the sites. Good transport links with the tram network. It's about a 20 minute walk from the train station but a tram would take 5 mins. There are lots of restaurants, bars and cafés nearby.
The hotel it's self is beautifully decorated, the rooms and bathrooms are lovely. The free hot and cold drinks in the lobby with sweet treats too was a big bonus. The staff were very friendly, although we did sit at the bar for quite a while and no one came to serve us one evening.
We stayed in a standard room which was still lovely. High quality toiletries were provided. The shower was separate to the toilet and basin, the shower itself very good. The bed was amazing.
I honestly have no complaints.

We had a really positive experience at Hotel Estherea recently. The hotel itself is in a great location, just off of one of the canals in the heart of the city. It's probably an 8 minute walk from the train station and it's within a very short walk of many great restaurants, not to mention very close to the Anne Frank house. As far as the hotel goes, it is really beautiful. The decor is a bit over the top, but I did appreciate that. It's very old-style swanky and glamorous. I could see how some may not enjoy the decor, though. The lobby is really open and there is a fun bar that seemed to be open quite a lot. The hotel serves breakfast and the bar offers a few snacks, but they don't do a dinner service. A couple fun perks about the hotel are that they have a free coffee machine down in the lobby for you to get your espresso jolt any time you need one, and they also loan you an iPad to use during your stay. Pretty neat! Our room was very cozy and comfortable. The bathrooms were very strange, but kept us amused. We felt like we were taking a shower in a closet - truly, I think we were, and then there was another "closet" with the toilet and sink. Gotta make use of the space somehow! The closet shower was VERY nice - it had heated tile floors and was very large with really nice shampoos and soaps. We appreciated the kind, sincere service we received at the hotel, as well.
