“Fabulous, a real joy to stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

It was such a pleasure to arrive at this hotel (we swapped from another hotel in the city, during our stay). Service was exemplary, the public rooms were beautiful (including the charming library), the central location on one of the canals was a joy and the breakfast was fresh and delicious. We stayed in one of the duplex suites, overlooking the canal. This was really special, for a very special short break.

Room Tip: Facing the canal was a delight - sunlight on rippling water reflected in your room.

Stayed for two nights, room overlooking the canal. Super comfy bed, and very quiet. Room was really lovely with original features but modern features, tastefully done. Good bathroom, monsoon shower, and nice bath and shower products that were great to use.
Other areas of the hotel were really lovely with traditional and some modern furniture put together, some nice pieces of modern art.The breakfast room, drawing room, and library were nice places to spend some time when the weather was a bit stormy.
Breakfasts were good, with a range of meats, cheeses, breads, fruits and hot breakfast, and value for money, as supply was unlimited.
Welcome was warm and very professional. Service throughout the stay was very good, staff helpful and accommodating to requests. We were even escorted to the taxi by staff holding umbrellas over us to protect us from the rain! A really nice atmosphere in the hotel.
Fantastic location, away from the crowds and noise, but within short walking distance to the main attractions. Some nice restaurants in the area too.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Amsterdam, and can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Be prepared to negotiate steps and narrow corridors, this hotel is a number of converted canal house...

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was an incredible experience. The rooms are beautiful yet extremely comfortable (a combination you can't get too often at nice places) and the food (we only had breakfast here) is out of this world. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. Would definitely go back.

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.

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
