“Dutch Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

This is a beautiful small hotel on the Singel Canal in central Amsterdam, and very reasonably priced compared to other highly rated hotels in the city (also picked as the "Best Hotel Value" by Frommers). The rooms were very well appointed-typical size for European hotels--also very quiet even on the street side. The staff was very helpful with directions and restauraunt recommendations (and there are a number of good restaurants in short walking distance). They have a cozy bar that is open 24 hours. Most of the major museums are within a reasonable walking distance or short cab ride. If you book your room directly with the hotel on their website, you get free internet in your room and late checkout time. Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED--would defintely stay there again

Room Tip: Canal facing rooms have a nice view and are quiet

Flew Easy Jet - Luton to Amsterdam - great experience, signed up to easy boarding and seat reservation - well worth the money, no hassle.

Stayed at Estherea Hotel - absolutely wonderful, lovely rooms, great staff, wide choice for breakfast which although not included was well worth it. Hotel is very well situated, easy for getting round Amsterdam.

Hotel recommended Restaurant Haesje Claes just round the corner - Dutch style - magnificent and good value for money. Consider booking as very popular.

Room Tip: Pay for a superior room - if you book direct you get free wi fi. Extra for canal view at €45+ a nigh...

Stayed here for three nights last week. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were good and when we asked for above to a canal room it was arranged and they moved our belongings for us. Because we booked direct with the hotel we got breakfast for €13. Good choice at breakfast with hot and cold buffet. In addition there was always coffee and cookies available in the foyer. The only comment I would make is that the bath towels were a bit thin and small, they could do with being replaced. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

This hotel was even better than the photos. Much larger reception area, great lounge and seating for reading etc. Bar is just beautiful with great service 24/7!

Breakfast was prepaid and certainly worth it. Loads to choose from and open from 7 till 11 every morning. Free tea and coffee all day plus cookies and candies put out at night beside the lobby.

This is the third time I've stayed , it's a lovely hotel, very comfortable. Bathroom was huge with separate shower cubicle and separate wc.

Only quibble is for this price might have expected a bath robe to be included.

The breakfasts have improved a lot. I remember being disappointed the first time I stayed but were pretty good this time.

This is a great boutique hotel with wonderful staff that will always go out of their way to accommodate any request. Good location and walking distance to just about everything. Great breakfasts and while the rooms are small, like many European hotels, they are tasteful and the Hotel ambience is special. Only minor "quack" is they need to upgrade their towels and linens. Getting a bit thin for this quality of hotel. Would be happy to go back and recommend to others.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Estherea and had a wonderful time, enjoying the hotel and the nearby sights, museums etc. Friends told us about this hotel and we are very grateful to them as it was lovely.....our room, 214, was very pretty, overlooking the canal and totally comfortable albeit a bit small. We know this is typical of European boutique hotels so we didn't mind that at all. Breakfasts were really delicious and well worth the money; if you pre-arrange to have breakfasts, there is a discount offered that makes it more attractive. Staff couldn't have been nicer, friendlier or more helpful, making reservations for our dinners and for our return van ride to the airport. We used Conexxion both ways and thought that was the easiest, most efficient way to get to and from; if you buy a round trip ticket, again, there is a nice discount. While at the hotel, we ate at Luden which was very good, 5 Flies which we thought was overpriced and very over rated (although the interior is historic and interesting, the food is ordinary), and our favorite, Lucius, where we had great seafood and excellent service. All are within a block or two of the hotel. We walked everywhere.....the museums, Anne Frank House, Dam Square etc......just watch out for the bicycles! They don't always watch out for pedestrians, and they often fly right by you at rather high speeds.
We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: #214 is lovely, overlooking the canal. If a light sleeper, just know they begin working on the brid...
