Very glad we chose this hotel. Each of the three rooms we booked was lovely, comfortable and nicely furnished. Having seen their sister's palatial room (with it's own doorbell) our sons weren't very pleased to have a twin with no canal view, but that was what I'd booked. The staff were charming and helpful and all spoke impeccable English.
Breakfast was a little expensive, although there was a lot of choice. However, there are plenty of bakeries and cafes in the area where one could eat for less if required. We were slightly concerned about the lack of restaurant in the hotel but it's a five minute walk to some very nice eateries, notably a delightful old building whose name translates as 'The Five Flies'.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel. As it occupies a row of canal side houses, if you're lucky you get to stay in an entirely separate building from your kids!
- 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
