“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Truly enjoyed the hotel. Apparently if you book for 3 nights you receive free canal cruise tickets -we found this out after spending $40. When asked for a credit towards our room the hotel responded "you need to ask for the free gift we don't just give it out". So mind reading is not my forte but overall a charming lovely hotel with a great breakfast. TIP make your reservation directly with hotel-breakfast is 5 euros cheaper this way

When booking from Australia we looked on the internet for a hotel that would provide us with an authentic Dutch experience while in Amsterdam. We were absolutely delighted with the Estherea Hotel. It gave us just the experience we were hoping for. Apart from the very attractive, welcoming, cosy atmosphere in the hotel the location was excellent and staff were friendly and helpful. It was tulip time while we were there and we delighted in the buckets of fresh tulips that hung from the balcony railings while we were there.

Stayed 3 nights, had a great experience. Very comfortable room and common areas. Great coffee machine. Excellent breakfast. Location makes it walkable to Dam Square, Jordaan district, Anne Frank house, flower market. Central station a little further but we walked it. Close to tram to Museum district. Wonderful room (with whirlpool tub), amenities, and staff. Bought tickets for Rijksmuseum there, had no wait at the museum itself. I have only one complaint, I wish the staff knew more about the Tours that they sell. They told us the wrong time to meet our tour, and we nearly missed it (a canal cruise).

Very special and nice hotel with a good location. Excellent personalized service. Unique decoration of the lobby and common rooms with great flower arrangements. Nice comfortable bedding. The self-service area with coffee and tea and some bakery was an excellent extra.

Delightful 5-story inn located in attached late 1600's renovated buildings with elevators on the Singel canal. Charming room and quiet block, yet walking distance to everything you could want. Staff is excellent and helpful. A smart value. We'll be back!

I booked two rooms at the Hotel Estherea based upon the reviews from other members of Trip Advisor. My family and I were not disappointed. The rooms are very well appointed, the service is excellent, the lobby is warm and inviting and the hotel bar is cozy and friendly. The hotel is situated in a great location for walking this beautiful city. When I return to Amsterdam I plan to stay here again.

We loved Amsterdam and this hotel was a big part of the experience.
We were able to walk or ride bikes everywhere we went.
Staff was lovely, rooms pretty- old world- and quiet.
We had a room overlooking a canal. What fun!
The complimentary breakfast was just OK and kind of hectic but that is my only complaint.
