This is a four star hotel located in the city-centre overlooking the Heerengracht. Despite its central location it is very quiet at night even on the ground floor where we took one of the junior suites. This was imaginatively designed as a sort of mini-maisonette with sleeping area upstairs. The whole set up was spotlessly clean and the service was excellent, unobtrusive but infallibly there when needed. City map was given out unasked but there was thankfully no desperate effort to sell us any extras such as excursions or museum bookings. However, the Reception is happy to do that if asked and they do get a reduction on some events. The hotel provides free internet access and its business centre too is free of charge. The one slight minus point is the breakfast. which is certainly plentiful but rather dull for the price (17 euros 50 per person). There is a lounge with reasonably priced alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and full room service facilities. All rooms have a mini-bar which is rather expensive. However, as the hotel is near several bars and restaurants, one does not need to be dependent on its eating and drinking facilities. The nearest historical site is Anne Frank's house and St. Francis church both within easy walking distance.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Over the years, the Ambassade Hotel has expanded considerably. Starting with just one canal-side building in 1953, it now has 58 hotel rooms distributed among 10 of these buildings. Eight of these canal-side homes are on the "Herengracht" canal, while two others are located on the "Singel" canal. Other buildings are in use by the Ambassade Hotel too, but for other purposes: a few houses further along the Herengracht is the hotel's Float & Massage Centre known as Koan Float and 150 meters further along the Singel canal you will find the hotel's conference room. Except for the building at 335 Herengracht, all the canal-side buildings are physically interconnected. So as not to unnecessarily damage the original character of these canal-side homes, small sets of stairs and landings can be found at various places in the halls and in some of the rooms themselves to bridge the differences in floor elevations between the buildings. Over the years, two lifts have been installed, making all rooms easily accessible. The canal houses have been carefully restored to maintain their authentic character and all rooms and suites have been stylishly furnished and decorated. The furnishings are predominantly Louis XV/XVI style with the use of colorful fabrics and in all rooms and public areas you will find original paintings by artists from the famous Cobra movement. ... more less
