“Loved It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

This hotel was perfectly located against a beautiful canal. Splurge for a canal view room, it's worth it. The lobby is charming, with an amazing fish tank, a cozy/trendy little bar and some nice sitting areas. There are free coffee drinks in the lobby and cookies in the afternoon. The staff was very professional and friendly and quite helpful. The rooms were large and elegant, each one decorated differently. I will definitely return.

We accompanied a group of 20 Canadians to Amsterdam . We chose to stay at the beautiful Hotel Estherea set along the Singel Canal in the centre of Amsterdam, only 300 metres from the popular Royal Palace at Dam Square. We could not have chosen a better hotel. The luxurious hotel offers all the amenities that one would want including free WIFI, a sumptuous and extensive buffet breakfast, 24 hour tea, coffee, cold drinks and pastries.
With everything being "top notch", add to this one of the most friendly and cordial staff that we have ever seen. From the moment we arrived and met Suzie and the other incredible staff at the front desk, we were treated royally by everyone. The whole staff is superb . Congratulations!

We were very pleased with our stay at Hotel Estherea. The hotel décor is beautiful and the staff super nice and accommodating. We had a canal room (212) which was on the small side but nicely appointed. The bathroom was small as well but I managed just fine... I also got a wonderful tour of the other rooms of the hotel and think I'd opt for one of the newer rooms with a separate shower next time! We didn't spend all that much time in the room so I'd rather have a larger room/bathroom than a view of the canal. 24 hr coffe/tea in lobby was a nice touch, especially for my coffee drinking husband! And the buffet breakfast was delicious! Definitely worth the small extra price. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely stay here again!

The decor and facilities are excellent. Nice touches included the availability of tea, coffee, pastries and refreshing cold drinks all day. Beautiful marine aquarium in the lounge area made it a lovely place to sit and rest after a busy day. It made our stay in Amsterdam particularly enjoyable. It would definitely be our hotel of choice again.

Stayed at the lovely Hotel Estherea this past April, and I (and my family) absolutely adored this hotel! Charming doesn't begin to describe it, the staff couldn't have been friendlier, and the rooms are impeccably decorated, each with its own unique motif (the only caveat here is that like most European hotels, the rooms are on the small side). The hotel was spotless, the common areas were beautiful, and the free hot drinks and cookies/cake added a nice touch. All this with a really good location, close to everything but still manages to be quiet and peaceful. Don't look anywhere else, this is the best if you are looking for a well-situated, delightful and well appointed hotel in Amsterdam.

Flauless stay. The hotel is very clean both in the common areas and the rooms. Very good food and a big variety of it. Excellent service and very welcoming staff. The hotel is at a very central location and an easy reach to all the main attractions.
