“excellent short break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

just returned from a 3 day stay at the Estherea. I can honestly say that we had a fantastic stay. The hotel is kept to a very high standard. The staff are very welcoming and helpful with any requests or assistance we needed throughout our stay. the rooms are comfortable and clean. the coffee facilities are very good and available at any time in the hall next to the bar. there is a small comfortable bar. I would recommend staying at the Estherea to anyone who enjoys quality surroundings within easy reach of all of Amsterdam's sights. there are many bars and restaurants very close by in a nice area away from the bustle. We very much look forward to returning and will do so. well done Estherea and thank you for a wonderful welcoming break. see you soon.

The pictures online do not do this hotel a service, you have to see the sumptuous interiors to really appreciate the Hotel Estherea. The lobby and restaurant are places I don't usually hang around in hotels but I could happily sit and drink the complimentary coffee and nibble a pastry all day long and admire the beautiful furnishings and finishing touches. Our room was equally sumptuous and very dutch in blue and white. Lovely hotel staff made our stay even better and answered our questions without hesitation. Breakfast was expensive but good quality and plentiful. Great hotel in great location. A haven after pounding the streets of Amsterdam.

What a fabulous surprise my husband and I got as we walked through the doors into this sumptuous and richly decorated hotel. This was only surpassed by our amazing room, which was a Deluxe Double room, again most beautifully decorated. The bed was large and comfortable and the room size was more than adequate. Everything was sparkling clean and the staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous. The aquarium is a fascinating addition to lobby and Reception area. The coffee machine, and selection of teas and cakes is a nice touch and enabled us to make our own refreshments whenever we wanted. Hotel Estherea is ideally situated on the Singel Canal and is just a short walk to Dam Square, cafés, shops and restaurants as well as the Hop on Hop off bus stops. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and have been singing its praises since our return to Australia.

Just returned from a three night break staying at the Estherea. Totally lived up to my expectations. Superb breakfasts, friendly staff, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds, well designed and decorated rooms, fridge for storing the Leonidas chocolates, coffee and tea on tap 24 hours a day, good central location, very good restaurants just 2 minutes away. Ticked all the boxes and we will be back...

Have stayed here a dozen times or so, but realised i never took time to write a review (truth is i guess we make the time to write about poor experiences!)
The hotel is a beautiful, fantastic location, stylish bedrooms decor, fantastic breakfast - and wonderful staff.

A truly welcoming place that met all our needs ...and more! The staff was wonderful, at times anticipating our needs. The room was quite large for a European hotel and quiet at night. Location was ideal and the breakfast quite sufficient to get us on our way each day. We'll rebook when we return to Amsterdam!
