I had stayed at Ambassade a few years ago upon the recommendation of a friend - and I loved it so much that I knew one day I'd return with my husband - and I did, last month.
I could only afford one night here, it's extremely expensive (my visa bill came in at $500 for one night - I think my rate was 295 euros + taxes), and we had a double room, canal view - but I'm glad we splurged because there's something about staying on the canal and especially on the Herengracht Canal - it's a lovely area for walking (well, all of AMS is good for walking), and we walked to a little restaurant where we were able to eat canal-side (it rained much of the week we were in Amsterdam).
The rooms are lovely and in the process of being re-done; breakfast is superb - my husband went to the restaurant and I enjoyed room-service while I sat by the open window and watched people cycling by. The cons of being so close to the street and to the water is the noise at night - but we were fine, there wasn't too much noise the night we were there.
While yes it's a labyrinth, it's charming and up and down and all over the place. I just love this hotel but I'm afraid I'll likely not ever be able to afford to go back.
Oh, one small thing - it seems that they try to encourage people to do a float-thing - a stress/spa thing - last time I was there they seemed to push it a bit, too. I chose not to do it - must be a money-maker, says the cynic in me.
Overall though, would definitely recommend. Rated 4 instead of 5 just because of the cost.
