This wa our first stay at Ambassade but it was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

A little confusing but... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and can't say enough about the service and our overall experience. The room was a bit small but very well appointed. The service throughout our stay was wonderful..from the front desk, the bar and the restaurant. Everyone gave us great recommendations for restaurants, shopping and exploring. They even were able to get us... More

July 3 & 4 2016 Our third visit to Amsterdam and we wanted to be situated in the Heart of the city, close to major sights and areas. The Ambassade is a wonderful choice for not only the location but also its inherent class and beauty. Between two canals Herengracht and Singel, we had a beautiful view of the latter... More

We enjoyed two delightful nights at the Ambassade Hotel prior to our cruise in August. The rooms are unique and beautiful, and the location is perfect for touring Amsterdam.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful staff at the Ambassade Hotel. Each and every person went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The hotel is charming, located on a quiet street on the lovely Herengracht Canal. It's close enough to walk to all of the sights but away from the hustle and bustle. The... More

The hotel is wonderful, on all counts. The location is quiet, yet convenient to nearly every place you'd like to go. The nearby restaurants are wonderful too (Broodje Bert for breakfast, Dante for great Italian, to name a couple). William (Willem?) was an incredibly nice guy - we could not believe how he managed to be butler, waiter, porter and... More

Beautiful. On a canal. Exemplary service. I suppose if I had to find something negative - if you are a very light sleeper and you are on the second floor and you sleep with the windows open then people in the street merely talking might wake you. You could always run the air conditioner which works well. If you have... More

This beautiful hotel is in the centre of Amsterdam but benefiting from the quieter side of Herengrcht. The old canal houses have been lovingly restored and offer a traditional luxury which many places have moved away for the more minimalist look. However, you will still have the eclectic feel as the place is the envy of any one with a... More

Dear Sir, Madam, Thank you very much for these wonderful words. The owner of the hotel used to know one of the CoBrA-members and received a few paintings from him. Later, he decided to purchase more of this gentleman's work during auctions and sales and also works of other members of the famous CoBrA-movement. The Ambassade's collection now rivals the... More

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 57 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 Ambassade Hotel has a bar and restaurant/brasserie called 'Brasserie Ambassade' that specialises in the classical French kitchen. 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 colourful fabrics and in all rooms and public areas you will find original paintings by artists from the famous CoBrA movement. ... more   less
