In an old European city, you want a hotel that at least captures a hint of Henry James. The Estherea, with its old-fashioned and pleasantly ornate lobby and public rooms, does this (without sacrificing modern comforts like a high-tech coffee machine mixing free capuccinos and lattes and a very reasonable WiFi policy). My room was great, with the option of...

A gorgeous Hotel right in the centre of Amsterdam, few minutes to shops, Anne Frank House, Dam Square and overlooking the canal. Just loved this place as it was a wonderful refuge from a busy day. The free coffee and tea were very welcome at all times of the day. Definitely recommend this hotel and we will be back.

I stayed at the Hotel Estherea for 3 nights in late July 2013. The hotel is perfectly located (2 blocks from Dam Square) right on Singel Canal. The room was large and the bed was ultra comfortable. There is a little bar which is extremely cute and reminded me of La Cage aux Folles. The cleaning stuff is very efficient...

We loved this hotel and already recommended it to friends. You will get more than what you've bargained for here, we booked a room with a canal view and what a view it was.. The attention to detail is definitely a huge focus and a big plus.

We stayed for two nights at the end of May and had an amazing time!!!! LOVED your saltwater aquarium (I'm into saltwater tanks, so I was super excited to see this!). The junior suite was fabulous and we also stayed in a canal view our first night. I normally don't use hotel bath products, but the quality and smell of...

Just returned this afternoon to the USA from a 3 day stay at the Hotel Estherea after a 12 day med. cruise. This was our first time to Amsterdam and in the initial hotel search,it was a bit daunting at all the options. We finally chose this hotel as we tend to like smaller boutique hotels. This place was perfect...

After reading other reviews, we knew this wasn't going to be your average hotel and it would be more on the luxurious side. Overall, we are very glad we chose this hotel and would recommend to others. Pros: (1) Really great location that is quiet, safe, and close to what you want to see.... walking around Nine Little Streets, Jordaan,...

We spent 3 days here before starting a cruise. It was a great location - we walked to all the main attractions and museums. It is very close to the Dam, and about a 15 minute walk to Central Station. The hotel was clean, nice decor, helpful staff, good breakfast, and it was smoke free and had Air Conditioning!

The location is excellent, very central and easy to access the sights; though the canal bridge nearest to the hotel is currently being reconstructed. The rooms are on the small side for the price but very comfortable with a decent bathroom. Note: many of the rooms have windows opening onto small internal alcoves so the room is effectively sealed from...

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
