3 friends and I spent 3 nights at the Ambassade before a river cruise on the Rhine in late April. We all loved it. Wanted to stay in a place with local ambience, and could not be more pleased. The service was excellent. We arrived well before check in time on a Wednesday morning and they graciously stored our bags while we explored. The bags were in our rooms when we returned. The rooms were lovely. Large bathroom with all the amenities. Very comfortable beds. Wifi worked great throughout the hotel. Lots of personality in the twists and turns in the connecting canal houses. Breakfast is very good and in a lovely dining area. There is also a parlor on the same floor and a beautiful library on the first floor where we had hot chocolate (with a little Bailey's added) one evening. Great location. We walked all over Amsterdam. When we needed directions or a taxi, the staff was most helpful. Loved it!
- 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 57 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 Ambassade Hotel has a bar and restaurant/brasserie that specializes in the classical French kitchen. 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
