Modern, clean, clearly an Amsterdam boutique hotel.
I'm one of those weird people who wants to be in the middle of the city with a quiet room, Times Square and sleep till 10. Based upon previous reviews on Trip Advisor, I was concerned about street noise. So, I contacted the hotel and asked them if they could assure me a quiet room and they sure did.
Enjoy walking Amsterdam. The streets are so quaint and the stores and restaurants inviting. The people are happy and pretty and polite and friendly. This hotel requires walking, which is delightful. It is not at the museums and it is night at the Dam Square. It's in between, surrounded by Amsterdam and the canals.
The breakfasts are adequate but the price is hotel-okay.

Room Tip: Quiet faces the rear. The show, the canal view, will be louder. These are limited.

We thank you for your kind appreciative words and are glad to read you enjoyed the Ambassade Hotel and the quiet yet central location.
Indeed, the renovation of the hotel lobby has been completed with a new entry and more space to welcome our guests.
Also new are the displays of artwork all over the lobby.
Hope to have the pleasure of seeing you back soon.

The hotel staff was superb. Their welcoming attitude makes you feel like coming home. The location could not have been more perfect: right in the centre of Amsterdam, but still on an secluded part of the canal belt, so not too much noise from the streets. And the hotel and its rooms are truly beautiful. You can really see that little extra effort that has been put into its design and the management in general. Highly recommendable if you want to add this special touch to your visit to Amsterdam.

I choosed this hotel for a special occasion, a surprise trip to Amsterdam with the best hotel in terms of quality, price and location.

I did the right choice.


Quality; Perfect room, nice beds, good service, good minibar (free water).
Roomservice is recommended, especially if you have a canal view- room!

Probably the most romantic and nicest area in Amsterdam.

Price; You get what you pay for.

Location; 5min away from shopping at the 9 streets and Kalverstraat. 5 min away from the Flower Market. 10min away from Anne Franks House. 10min away from the Royal Palace. 15 min away from Rijksmuseum and 15min away from Red Light. We never took the tram or taxi during our stay (expect from and to Schiphol). Many restaurants and bars in the area, Lot of people and bikes, watch your back for bikes when walking during the day/weekends.

Room Tip: Canal view and top floor.

The hotel is placed right in the middle of everything:the Royal Palace,flower market, central Station are all few minutes walk away.It is a very old building which was renovated into a an unique hotel. The breakfast is sensational,the restaurant only offer but the room service is extensive and available 24 hours.Not really needed as the area is full of restaurants,bars and brasseries.The best rooms are the superb junior suites some at the street level from where you can see the water just few meters outside the windows.The reception sells transportation tickets,tours and they call a cab at any time with a 2-3 minutes maximum waiting time.It is on the expensive side but it has a fantastic personality and it will make a dreamy vacation for any occasion

Room Tip: Junior suite at the street level

The staff at the Ambassade were lovely from the second we arrived, suggesting a great steak restaurant for dinner our first night, and chatting to us about our plans for our time in Amsterdam. The hotel could not be in a better location for exploring. Our room was very cute and extremely clean, although annoyingly only accessible via a complicated route with very narrow spiral staircases.

I am not going to contradict any of the accolades given to this fine hotel. Its approach of mixing classic and modern completely appeals to us. My wife and I and our two teenage daughters stayed there last week for a couple of nights. I had booked classic rooms - the entry level, given that we needed two rooms - but don't ask me what they were like, as the hotel upgraded us all to superior/deluxe rooms, both canal-facing! The pictures on the site tell the story, showing the classic decor of the bedrooms. I was suitably impressed in our room (53) when I opened what would once have been a cupboard door to access what I was expecting to be a cupboard-like bathroom only to find a deep, well-proprtioned room that could accommodate a twin sink, modern-style bath and separate rainfall shower cubicle.

It is the service levels that I suspect elevate the hotel even more than the quality of its accommodation, whether that is in person or by email. The hotel reception is just about to be refurbished (we missed it by a week!), and there are plans to install a bar too, so that should improve the offering even more. No restaurant, though a cold buffet and cooked breakfast - with ongoing coffee and tea refills! - is available in an attractive 1st floor room, adjoining the impressive lounge.

Just do not forget though that the hotel is an assembly of canal-side houses from the 17th century, so do not necessarily expect completely modern levels of sound-proofing; but then surely part of the attraction of staying in the old "9 Streets" area is to get some experience of the sights and sounds of life there! Needless to say, the location for wandering to key areas of interest is excellent, and part of the fun is simply walking along the canals.

Heartily recommended.

Room Tip: I can recommend room 53, which we stayed in, with a large bathroom. It is the colour purple, if that...
