We were originally booked at another hotel for our seven night stay in mid-May. But due to construction in the adjoining building, the hotel requested that we cancel as they were sure our stay with them would be less than perfect. They suggested the Estherea. An upgrade in price for us for sure, but we are so glad we splurged. We loved our stay. The only rooms the Estherea originally had available were non canal-view, but when we checked in, a canal-view room was available. We looked at our choice of rooms and the canal-view was a no brainer, though it was yet another upgrade. No doubt the most expensive hotel stay we've ever had (nearly $2500 for the seven nights) but we have such great memories and feelings about the Estherea. Room 110 if I recall. We found it very spacious. King size bed. Nice bathroom, small fridge, desk and sitting area, but the absolute winner was the three large windows that overlooked the Singel. Gorgeous. We had breakfast at the hotel just once as the 16E p/p price was a bit much. Several very good breakfast eateries and bakeries are nearby. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate and treats are available in the lobby 24/7. Lobby is beautiful with dark wood furniture, large, comfortable rose-colored chairs and sofas, and a stunning chandelier. There is also a bar with small sitting area. The lobby also has a huge fresh-water fish tank with an aquarium assortment of amazingly colored fish. Mesmerizing. Staff, especially Daan (double a) at the front desk, could not have been more helpful and friendly. We'll probably rent an apartment on our next Amsterdam trip. But if we don't, we will definitely stay at the Estherea again. No doubt!
