I stayed in the Ambassade Hotel from the 8th to the 9th of December in room 17.
It is located beautifully right at the Herengracht. The first impression is romantic, special, a lot of atmosphere with extremely helpful and friendly staff members!
The room was lovely with special and beautifully old furniture. What I did not like: the curtains were already greyish, the heating was completely switched off upon my arrival (outside temperature was 7 degrees...) Whilst the bathroom clearly has been renovated with beautiful new tiles and mountings, the sinks and bathtub looked very used (still/again?) and a lot of the items would have loved to make the acquaintance of Cilit Bang..... Not a lot of attention went into details (cracked tiles not exchanged....)
What bothered me: there was construction work going on in the hotel ending at 4 pm, starting around 7:30/8 am with loud drilling and jack hammering. In all fairness, the hotel had informed me prior to my stay that the breakfast room could not be used due to reconstruction. But this was after I had booked at a non refundable rate and in all honesty I did not expect hat the noise would be to an extent hat even a phone call in my room was difficult.... And after a long party night I had not expected to be woken up by drilling at 7:30.....:-)
Finally: to the convenience of their guests the Ambassade hotel offers a 24 hour room service. Fabulous!!
I tried the Cesars Salad. My recommendation: don't.
All in all I think the value for money was ok, staff really nice and friendly, lovely location but probably not the choice I would recommend to my friends.
