This is an exquisite little hotel housed in several old Amsterdam canal houses on the Heerengracht, within easy walking distance of the Central Square, the RijksMuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. There is also interesting shopping in offbeat or quirky shops in the "Nine Streets" very close to it (ask at the hotel reception.) Really I cannot commend this hotel too highly. The staff were exceptional - courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are decorated with great flair, and the bathrooms are spotless. There is a beautiful reading room/library on the reception floor, and one floor up overlooking the canal is a huge, high-ceilinged drawing room for use by hotel guests, beautifully furnished with Dutch antiques and blazing with light from three sparkling chandeliers. It was exceptionally pleasant to wit there and sip a glass of wine before going out for dinner. The breakfasts (they do not serve lunch or dinner, but there is 24-hour room service) were of a very hgh calibre, and very generous. Altogether a very pleasing experience.
- 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
