My husband and I stayed for four nights in a lovely, spacious room overlooking the Herengracht canal. Though along the canal/street side, it was quiet. The staff, especially the young lady on the evening shift was delightful and helpful. They made restaurant bookings even before our arrival, and got our museum tickets so we won't have to queue at the Rijksmuseum. Our two sons were staying in a houseboat on Prinsengracht nearby but they joined us for breakfast at Ambassade one morning. The breakfast selection was excellent. There was a cold buffet with meat cuts, smoked trout and salmon, etc, and a sampling of special cheeses. They also cooked poached eggs and mini pancakes for us upon request. I do have issues with the following: 1) The shower stall design was such that water seeped from under the door and one had to be so careful stepping out because the outside of the shower stall becomes wet and slick. Also some of the caulking around the tub was a bit discolored and tired-looking; 2) The lack of a coffee/hot water appliance for making coffee or tea in-house. Sure, Ambassade room service delivered a beautiful hot tea tray with some cookies to our room when we ordered it via room service but for a price dearer than if I had just brewed it myself in-room. The hotel itself is exquisite. It is refined. I especially love the library. The modern art in the building is a perfect way to mix the centuries-old Amsterdam style with the contemporary. The Ambassade has a perfect location in Amsterdam. Except for my pet peeve of lack of hot tea making in-room (available in Japanese lodgings), this is an excellent hotel.
