Hotel Estherea was everything it promised to be.
The location was simply great. Nothing was too far away, we could walk everywhere. For places like Vondelpark you could rent a bike and have a great ride all the way. The area of the hotel itself was very charming - there was a tiny lane connecting the hotel road (Singel) to Spuistraat, which lead to a great deal of activity, restaurants and shops. Close to the hotel, on the corner of the tiny lane, was a breakfast place. On the other side we found a reasonable taxi service, which took us to the airport at a cheaper rate on the way out.
The hotel was beautiful and elegant inside, with large chandeliers and boutique wall paper all around. And even though our room was a bit small, and we didn't get the canal view room that we had booked, it was still quite nice. The size of the bathroom was quite decent. It had two sinks, and a separate shower and bath tub and high quality toiletries were provided. Tea and coffee were available at all times in the area beyond the lobby, complete with to-go cups! Great if you want to grab a cup of tea and sit outside on the benches, looking at the canal and watching people go by. The breakfast buffet was also quite decent and comfortable.
I would highly recommend this hotel to people who want to be able to walk everywhere and yet enjoy some beauty and comfort. The only tiny regret I have is that we did not get a canal view room, even though that was the one we had booked. Next time, perhaps.
