“Luxurious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

My daughter and I have just returned from a two nights stay in a twin superior room overlooking the canal. Great experience. Circumnavigating the corridors and tiny steps is a challenge, thankfully daughter has a good sense of direction and for part of the way we were guided by the wafting perfume of the fresh flowers on level one. We had to use two lifts to reach level two. Bread crumbs a la Handsel and Gretel we contemplated. We loved the experience of being in the heart of the 'nine streets' which are surely the best place to shop in small boutiques - at a price. Lots of cafes with some tables on the pavements.

By the way, our room had a glorious, large bathroom with a twin overhead shower wet room - a bit lost on ma and her eldest!

As has been said before, all staff were charmingly helpful. Great art work throughout. Well stocked library if you really want to stay in. Emphasis on comfort. We did not eat in so cannot comment.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with family

Everything about The Ambassade made our stay a real pleasure. The location was perfect, the entire staff charming and always going the extra mile to ensure that your stay is a success. We look forward to a return visit.

This was our second visit to the hotel and we were not disappointed.
The staff were really helpful; wwe arrived very early having arrived from an early flight and althiiugh a room was not avbaiale they ofered us cofffee and took care of our bags, whch were placed in our room for our return.
The decor is esceleltn and the rooms and building very intersting - the hotel is a number of houses jopined together!
I would not hesitate to recoomend the hotel and would certnaly return again.

The location is ideal and it was a delight to stay here.

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.
