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

We had dinner in the brasserie one night and can recommend it: lovely food in lovely surroundings and, again, helpful staff happy to chat and... 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

My wife and recently stayed here to visit Amsterdam prior to a Norwegian cruise. We had booked this hotel based on previous TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed.. Upon arrival, the hotel staff appeared from nowhere to bring in the bags from the taxis. We had arrived early as we had an overnight flight from Canada and the room was... More

Enjoyed 3 nights here along the canal. Comfortable, sumptuous bedding. Lots of eateries in the neighborhood, but no noise issues. If walking, be prepared for an adventure until you get used to Amsterdam's layout. Inside the Ambassade, the labyrinth of passageways to get to your room is not for those challenged by stairs and turns. My room had everything I... More

A friend raved about the Hotel Ambassade so, when making my own plans to visit Amsterdam, I only considered this hotel. And I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is actually a series of interconnected canal houses on the Gentleman's Canal in the Western Canal ring, just a 10 minute walk to the Anne Frank house, and a 2 minute walk to... More

All the staff went out of their way to accommodate a couple of tired travelers who had lost luggage.The room was large, quiet, and comfortable. We could not have asked for more.The location was close to city center and a wonderful area to walk around in.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.

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
