Great hotel in fabulous location, right in the middle of the most beautiful area in Amsterdam, close to many restaurants, cafes and shopping, and within walking distance to pretty much everywhere. Rooms are very nice and comfortable, and breakfast is great. Can't wait to come back.

The Ambassade hotel is ideally located in the center of Amsterdam, next to the canals, in one of the historical buildings. The rooms are cost and comfortable, with nice amenities (Bulgari soaps and shower gels, complimentary apples and water...). The French restaurant is also very good. The only problem of the hotel is that it comprises 2 buildings and getting... More

We spent two nights in a canal view room after a tandem bicycle river cruise. The location of the hotel was perfect for us. Every attraction that we wanted to visit was within walking distance and to return to the hotel on the quiet canal after a day in the the crowds in Amsterdam was a true blessing. Our room... More

Good afternoon, Madam, It is great reading you enjoyed your time at the Ambassade Hotel. And also reading we were able to help with tickets to the Anne Frank House, this is not always easy since the museum is usually booked long in advance and only rarely releases last-minute tickets. Please do visit again soon, that would be wonderful. Eelco... 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
