“Neat hotel, wonderful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Interior room in one of their adjoining properties. Well appointed comfortable room with working a/c--n.b. room was two small rooms with bedroom upstairs via steel circular staircase and bathroom downstairs. Bathroom was a bit musty--probably water leakage from shower.

Location is fabulous--walking distance to everything. Bike rentals available. Hotel main public rooms are lovely. Would highly recommend hotel for upscale leisure travel where stairs are not an issue.

We have just spent several days in this hotel, we found Derek, Linda and Josh on the front desk very efficient,helpful and kind. They have made our stay ever so fantastic with their knowledge of the city and places of interest.
We found the hotel in a walking distance to every part of the city
The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was very good and pleasant.
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed at the Ambassade for the second time and it was a wonderful as the first time. Surely this must be one of the best hotels in Amsterdam, if not the best. The location in the heart of the city cannot be beat, nor can the service of the staff members who are very kind and extremely helpful. The building and rooms are just charming. This time I had a lovely room on the top floor overlooking the canal. I was concerned that it might be a little noisy at night but the windows and curtains were pretty good about blocking sound from outside. This hotel is one of the reasons I enjoy coming to visit Amsterdam.

There were five of us...we had two rooms. Room 28 was located overlooking the canal and very comfortable. Room 26 was a good family room...one king bed and twin beds located in a small room off to the side. This room (#26) is located in the back of the hotel (no view) but very quiet and comfortable. We could walk to everything!

Room Tip: There was no parking on site, but the hotel did reserve a space in a garage that was not too far fro...

Wonderful hotel. Great location. Beautiful boutique hotel with lovely decor. Our room was on the 4th floor and overlooked the canal. Everyone was friendly and helpful. It was my birthday on the day we checked in and in the two minutes it took for us to go from registration to the dining room, the host was informed and wished me a happy birthday. Good start to the day. Walking distance to just about everywhere. Just watch out for the cyclists.

This boutique hotel is terrific...gracious and welcoming staff, perfect location, wonderful views, excellent breakfast...simply everything, but it is not inexpensive. Others have noted that some rooms have accessibility issue. This is true, but we've stayed here many times and because of some disability that I have, have recently been noting this when reserving, and we've always been made very comfortable. This is a wonderful hotel that I can recommend heartily.

Excellent stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful in booking travel needs. The room was spacious but could use a bit of pickup. It is a bit of maze to get to you room. The location is excellent for this very walkable city. The breakfast was very generous in choices and service was very good.

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
