From the moment our taxi pulled up to the Ambassade Hotel and reception staff immediately appeared to take in the luggage, I knew we were to be well taken care of, and the impeccable service continued in all aspects of our four day stay. Reception staff were consummate professionals, very friendly, considerate, and extremely helpful in recommendations regarding restaurants, making dinner reservations, and advising how to make the most of our stay in Amsterdam. The spacious room overlooking the canal was well-appointed with a mixture of modern and antique furnishings. The bathroom was large with all modern ammenities including a stand-alone shower, two basins, and a soaking tub. Room service was prompt and efficient in maintaining the room. All the common areas of the hotel were well-appointed, stylish, clean, and well-maintained. The breakfast room is well furnished and bright, and the breakfast was well worth the cost with a buffet of fruits, cheeses, breads, hams, cereals, and yogurt, and eggs, bacon, and omlets were cooked to order. The location of the hotel is perfect on Herengracht canal, one canal from the city center in a quiet and stylish neighborhood with all attractions of the city within easy walking distances. It is evident that all staff are very proud of their hotel deservedly so, and they make all efforts to make a guest's stay a truly memorable, delightful, and wonderful stay. Bravo!!!!! Already, we are planning our next stay at the Ambassade Hotel.
- 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
