We only stayed in the Ambassade one night, but it was the most luxurious of our trip. The staff of this boutique hotel on a quiet canal was very friendly and helpful. They recommended some great restaurants and were very knowledgeable about where to go to get a last minute canal boat ride. From looking at the map, and having never been to Amsterdam, I thought this location might be far from the town center. Rather it was an incredibly close walk to just about everywhere. Amsterdam is much smaller than I expected. I'm glad we ended up in a quiet spot too, since the vibrancy of the city was fun to visit, but wasn't something I'd want to sleep near. And lastly, about sleep. The bed at this hotel was out of this world. We will definitely return there when looking for another luxury get away.
- 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
