I recently stayed here for a few nights with elderly parents. Apart from the great location, fabulous rooms and decor, and sumptuous breakfast, what makes Ambassade stand in a league of it's own is the quality of service from the staff. Enquires for directions to the local post office were met with an offer by the reception staff to package and post the items on my behalf, without any surcharge. When we mentioned we were headed to the Van Gogh museum, the same staff sold us tickets (again without any surcharge) then and there, telling us we would avoid lengthy queues at the museum: we walked straight past about 200 people and straight in as a result! These were many other instances of genuinely friendly and wonderful service.
The rooms were a delight, definitely ask for canal views. If the full breakfast is too much (it was for us), there are any number of cafes along the canals for a coffee and pastry in the morning. The receptionist did say we could ask for a half breakfast, although the breakfast staff, while providing it, did indicate this was not normally done.
This is definitely going to be my regular hotel for weekends in Amsterdam!
