Reviewed yesterday NEW

So different from the usual big chains, this is a one-off, made up of several (5?) canal-side houses that have been joined together over the years. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are full of character and well equipped, if a bit overcrowded with furniture. The owner has a very interesting art collection, displayed all around...

Now, I have stayed in a few places. Some were high end, some were not quite but the service was superb and therefore I was satisfied. This is the case of me writing not because I merely want to review another hotel but because I have something to say. The Ambassade offers a lot more than just pleasant room to...

Unfortunately we found a big bunch of hair in the bathroom, we asked for cleaning service and the response was that no hair was found, when we came back the hair was still on the floor, which makes me think they don't even bothered on going up my room. I had to manage myself and clean... Gross... Leaving behind this...

Dear Sir, Madam, We are sorry to read your message. As you can see from other reviews the Ambassade Hotel always achieves the best possible level of service.

Ambassade is not an ordinary hotel: Rather, when one embarks upon a visit at this canal-side hotel, one is invited into a unique environment full of interesting art, wonderful books and hosts intent upon making your stay comfortable and enchanting. My husband and I spent a week at the Ambassade, which allowed us ample time to get to know its...

We stayed here for three days, first time visiting Amsterdam. I highly recommend this hotel. The staff is very service minded, I don't think they know what the word "no" means. If there's anything they can do for you,they will. Beautiful,clean rooms, a very nice bar, and Ambassade Brasserie serves great food. I give it my best recommendations.

I stayed at the Ambassade Hotel March 12, 2017 until March 18, 2017. This is a very fine hotel. I have been fortunate to stay at many of the most highly rated hotels in Amsterdam, as well as at similarly rated hotels worldwide. The Ambassade is a beautiful hotel, in a great location, run by highly professional staff. The room...

We stayed for three nights. Super location right in the scenic centre. Our room was quite large and well furnished although it was at the back and had no view. We missed tea or coffee making facilities. Downstairs, the hotel was very comfortable with a nice bar and quiet lounge. We ate in the Brasserie which was excellent. The staff...

This is a beautiful boutique hotel situated within walking distance to everything (but not in a particularly noisy/busy area). The staff is phenomenal - very kind, patient, and helpful.

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
