“Good value for money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

One of the best hotels I've stayed in through Europe and it has a feel of being authentic to the location. Well appointed rooms, each in a different style. Friendly and helpful staff. Interesting artwork through the hotel. It is away from the noisy central Amsterdam which we appreciated and meant we could sleep. Still it is within easy walking distance to everything. I would stay there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Very good location for an Amsterdam weekend - in the quiet 9 street area, and withing walking distance from everywhere. Service was attentive, helpful and friendly, even when busy. The hotel is created by the joining of 11 interconnected buildings. We had a nice canal view, but it did not fully compensate for street noises filtering in through the closed windows and the heating system's sluggishness. Breakfast was great - both in verity and service. All in all a good place to stay over a weekend.

The Ambassade Hotel is perfectly located on the Herengracht canal. This hotel offers its guests, both for private or on a business trip, a discrete and impeccable service in a very homely, clean and cosy atmosphere. The front office staffs are very knowledgeable and happy to give advice on anything from shopping and eating to cultural experiences together with making the necessary booking arrangements. The guest rooms are nicely decorated in a classic modern way together with spacious bathrooms of the latest standards. Both the breakfast in the dining room and the one ordered through room service is of the same high standards and represents good value for the money. The beds are very comfortable.
To the art interested guest the Ambassade Hotel offers an extra dimension with its impressive collection of works of some of the CoBrA artists, representing the European Avant- Guard movement between the years 1948-1951. Walking the hotel corridors, dining room, library and launches offers the interested viewer a CoBrA art experience almost at the same level as the CoBrA museum in Amstelveen will offer its visitors.
If you are looking for “the place” to stay while in Amsterdam, avoiding the crowds and instead enjoying true good service in an elegant environment with beautiful CoBrA works on the walls the Ambassade is your place.

This is a great hotel in a great location. The staff are very attentive and eager to help. The location is very central to explore the centre of Amsterdam. It is located on a canal which adds to its charm.

A smallish and charming hotel over loking a quit canal in the nine streets arera of the city worth visiting for shopping , charm and charactor. Also not far from Dam Square ( the main Sq ) but away from the sleezy side attracting the younger groups loing to be entertained.

Had a short city break in Amsterdam. Ambassade was a great place to stay. Close to the centre, at the a canal. Ideal place to stay when to want to explore the city. Enjoyed the breakfast at the hotel. A combination of a buffet and a la carte, in a beautify room with a view of the canal.

We stayed at the Ambassade Hotel for three nights for a long weekend. Overall the stay was good although is over priced. We booked a superior delux room which was beautiful, but noisy as near to the road and footpath. The service and cleanliness is very good, very fast room service and good attitude from the staff. It is a shame that for the price we paid that you cannot make your own coffee in the room! Location of the hotel is reasonable for shoppers, boat trips and central area. Would we stay again at the Ambassade? Yes but only if we get a better deal...
