2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
The Ambassade Hotel offers the ultimate base for you to explore the magical atmosphere of Amsterdam’s canals. Discover the charm and character of this unique boutique hotel in the heart of a wonderful city. The Ambassade Hotel is an authentic Amsterdam family-run hotel, located in fifteen 17th-century canal houses on the Herengracht canal and the Singel canal. It offers 55 stylish rooms and suites, each of them uniquely decorated in a perfect combination of classic and modern. The location is truly ideal, amidst the Amsterdam canal belt and in the intimate shopping area 'De Negen Straatjes' (Nine Streets). The Ambassade Hotel is just a stone's throw away from Dam square and all the famous museums, shopping streets, and other main attractions. Ask our staff for the ‘Ambassade city bikes and explore the surroundings as the local Amsterdammers do. On the 1st floor, you will find ‘Brasserie Ambassade’ - beautifully decorated with artworks, large chandeliers, and with magnificent views over the canal. Here you can enjoy exquisite French cuisine dishes, but with a modern twist. During your stay, discover the unique collection of over 800 CoBrA artworks that can be admired in all public areas as well as in each hotel room. Speaking of art; from 2022 guests can visit the new ‘Ambassade Art Gallery’, where various art exhibitions take place throughout the year. The hotel's ‘Library Bar’ is not only the place for a cocktail but is also a literary delight. Here you will find more than 5,000 books, each signed by famous authors who stayed at the Ambassade Hotel. At ‘Samsara Books & Art’, the hotel’s art- and bookstore around the corner, you will find books, gifts, and unique souvenirs. Ask for the unique ‘Art & Culture’ tours and packages, including a tour around the Art & Literature inside the hotel. Looking for a place to unwind? For hotel guests, special rates apply for relaxing float sessions at ‘Koan Float’, the wellness center of the Ambassade Hotel. Koan Float also offers fourteen types of professional massages. The hotel also features a private gym focusing on holistic health: the ‘Ambassade Gym’. Hotel guests can enjoy training sessions with a personal trainer, or reserve the gym for an invigorating private fitness session. Team Ambassade is looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you!

We loved the Ambassade hotel, ideal location and very friendly staff. Very comfortable rooms. Appreciated to borrow umbrellas during raining days. We arrived very early in the morning and they kindly arranged for early check-in. Ideal location too, walking distance to all museums. We had drinks at the Hoxton, nearby as the atmosphere was a bit more trendy with our young adults.. However, we wish to have tried the restaurant at the Ambassade. The food looks fantastic. (Hoxton food was below average)

Hotel's Favorite
After a fabulous concert of “superheroes’ film theme music in our Royal Concerthall we had a bicycle tour in Amsterdam by night . And arrived at the Herengracht in Amsterdam , we were very warm welcomed at the hotel and they gave us a lovely room under the room with a view on the canal . With the lovely music in my ear I had a good sleep . a cool breeze , gave some smell of the green trees in front of our window , in which you good sit and dream away with spectacular view. After a good sleep we had a very nice breakfast in the Restaurant full of the art of the COBRA artist from around the world. All the servants are very warm and friendly and most guest came back again and were recognized. it tells a lot about the fine vibes of the Hotel . They have had very much famous writers and all the books first edition and signed are there to see at the bar.. We had a good informative tour of the art collection of the hotel , it’s incredible ! What a special and hidden gem of Amsterdam , and I can tell by experience that taking a Float at Koan Float the neighbors is something which make you fly in Amsterdam and on Holiday .

We enjoyed top notch, professional and warm, friendly service at the Ambassade. The structure itself is an exquisite selection of old canal houses, lovingly restored and creatively converted into hotel space. Our room was absolutely charming with a canal view that reminded us where we were. The public spaces- the Library, Brasserie and Lobby - are welcoming and fun. The collection of art throughout the hotel and the book collection in the library are memorable and a mark of distinction. Drinks in the Library and breakfast in the Brasserie rank at the top of any hotel experience. We certainly will stay in this premier hotel again on our next visit to Amsterdam.

The hotel could not be better situated for tourists, in the best part of Amsterdam and within easy walking distance of the most interesting sites. My wife had never been to Amsterdam and was enchanted by the hotel. The service is as good as any I have encountered, anywhere in the world, in particular the reception staff who are attentive and very helpful.

Our second visit to the Ambassade Hotel after 3 years. Pleasantly surprised that after the pandemic, our experience was as good if not better than our first time. The staff is friendly, helpful and cheerful. Our room on the third floor was reasonably spacious and had a great view of the canal. The rooms are all different and you have wind your way through hallways and short stairs (there is an elevator) but not surprising since the hotel is composed of several different buildings, all connected. Ambassade is not an inexpensive place to stay, but it's well located to walk and explore Amsterdam's nicest streets, canals, shops and restaurants. The staff helped us with restaurant choices and reservations (even one night for a group of 6 of us for a great Rifstaffel dinner). We love the lounge/library/bar for an evening drink or afternoon coffee.
