“What can I say that hasn't already been said......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

This hotel would have to be one of the best I have stayed in and I am particularly fussy about accommodation. We were so lucky to secure their only apartment which was very large, had its own entrance, separate from the hotel and was beautifully decorated. Right from the start when we started emailing them to make the booking to the final checkout everything went smoothly. The staff are certainly an asset to the hotel and make the overall experience a joy. The location on the Herengracht is amazing and we had the most wonderful view of the canal. We didn't actually have breakfast there but we did have room service twice, the food was always really hot, and was delicious. We have relatives in the Netherlands and they were amazed by the size and quality of our accommodation. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you everyone at the Ambassade we had a wonderful time and would love to return again someday.

I stayed for 2 nights in November for a conference I was attending at the RAI. The hotel has a great boutique feel to it and the rooms whilst on the small side provide a good sized desk to work from and well equipped bathrooms. The wifi was very hit and miss so connecting a tablet, smartphone etc is not always successful. There are cables in each room for connecting laptops but even then I found the Internet was slow the majority of the time.

Breakfast was fantastic, fresh breads and pastries served at your table with a great continental buffet selection. Hot items are available to order from the staff and the service was very quick.

I didn't have any time for sightseeing but did walk to the restaurant recommended by the staff on the first night and found a very nice street with plenty of bars and restaurants to suit every taste.

I'd stay again for a leisure trip but the lack of wifi and slow internet really puts me off for business.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from lifts and main stairwells.

I live in Amsterdam and in the process of moving apartments so I stayed at the Ambassade for a few nights and for two reasons, the first is that my Mother stays here when she visits and second its the best hotel in the city, its close to central, its on the Herengracht which is one of the main and nicest canals in Amsterdam. The hotel is within the '9 streets' where you can spend sometime looking at the assortment of shops and many places to eat and drink. The Ambassade is spotlessly clean, the breakfast is fantastic, the staff are very helpful and very professional, the rooms are excellent and the rates are good considering where the hotel is positioned.

If you are on a short or long visit to this wonderful city, then the Ambassade is perfect.

My family stayed here for two nights recently and I have to say it rates as one of the best, if not the best hotel, I have stayed in. The staff were so helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were tastefully decorated and clean and spotless. Our room over looked the canal and was located in a central position in the city. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Amsterdam.

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!

Room Tip: Ask for a canal view

This was at least our fourth stay in this hotel and once again we were extremely happy with the room, the beautiful location and the professional staff. Our room was tastefully furnished, spotless and extremely comfortable. The location of the hotel is very attractive by the canal, and the staff are so polite, helpful and accommodating in every way. We love it for a few days relaxation and travelling around the area.

The hotel is located perfectly and the stuff is amazingly friendly.
Rooms are bit small, but that's typical Amsterdam with its small narrow townhouses.
We loved our stay and can recommend this hotel absolutely !!
