I stayed at the Hotel Estherea for 3 nights in late July 2013. The hotel is perfectly located (2 blocks from Dam Square) right on Singel Canal. The room was large and the bed was ultra comfortable. There is a little bar which is extremely cute and reminded me of La Cage aux Folles. The cleaning stuff is very efficient and there is free coffee and free minted water all day as well as free cookies and candies.
So why do I only give 4 stars? The reason is simple. This is an expensive hotel (close to $350 per night) but the little things are missing. The front office staff is professional but not warm or very friendly. I needed to rent a car and they did not lift a finger. They pointed me to the computer and told me to use the net. I expected much more services from an European boutique hotel as I experienced in other European cities.
