I would say that this hotel ranks slightly above average. The rooms were fine - small, a bit worn, yet charming with the way it was painted and the moulding on the walls and doors. The biggest issue was that there was no air conditioning - which really got to be a problem when it reached 30 degrees (85F) and we were on the 4th floor. I remember reading that on previous TripAdvisor posts, but I didn't think it would be a problem because I assumed Amsterdam wouldn't be that hot in June. Because it was so warm, the windows were open, which made it very noisy, even though we were overlooking the back of the building. The front desk staff was ok - polite but not necessarily friendly. However, the bellman who brought up our bags was very friendly.

The best part of the hotel was probably the location. On the Singel canal, it was a peaceful neighborhood, but it wasn't too far at all from Dam Square or Leidseplein.

Someone in an earlier post mentioned Broodje Bert, just south of the hotel. I have to put in a good word too - especially for the Goat Cheese, Honey, and Walnut sandwich. One of the tastiest treats I had on my entire 3-week European vacation!

Stayed in the hotel 3 days ago. We typically stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and resorts and while not being picky, we know when the place is decent, fake or a rip off with a storefront. We really liked this hotel for it's location, staff and ambience. The place is not really that small but retains the boutique hotel atmosphere. Stayed on the 5th floor, top floor attic- like room (# 514) facing a canal. The room was not large but functional and charming with large bath, safe, and mini bar. Complimentary coffee, tea, cocoa, fruit and snacks next to the lobby. Quiet canal street location in great neighborhood, only 2 blocks (5 min. walk) from the ground zero of Amsterdam, 10 minute walk (average pace) to Red Light District. The street in the back has plenty of good restaurants. We tried 2 restaurants recommended by the hotel in their room booklet and liked them both. Massage can be arranged by the hotel. The bell boy even carried a massage table for the lady that showed up. Front desk was very helpful. Just friendly people all around. The bottom line: very reasonable for the price. Beware of some Chinese and Middle Eastern/North African restaurants in the area which serve substandard food for inflated prices... with a smile, of course. Stick to what is recommended by the hotel or just use common sense by picking a place that is busy (not only with beer drinkers) and appears to have a professional setup. There are a lot of tourists in the area and bad restaurants don't really care about repeat business. Anyway, next time in Amsterdam we don't have to look for another place to stay.

Stayed at the Estherea in mid-March, when the weather was chilly, but the welcome very warm from the friendly staff. My Fiance and I got an upgrade ( without asking!) to a very comfortable room with balcony and Four-Poster bed - like the complimentary coffee and waffles that were available on return from our many easy walks to the sights of Amsterdam, this was very much appreciated when the temperature did not go above zero!
Situated on the Singel canal, it proved a great base from which to walk to must sees like the Floating Flower Market (about 400 metres away), Anne Frank Museum (about 1km).
The area near the Hotel had plenty of good quality restaurants, such as the D"Vijf Vliegen, where we dined on contemporary European Cuisine in a Canal House dating back to the 1640s!
We booked this hotel on the strength of the Tripadvisor reviews, and were not disappointed - fell in love with Amsterdam and the Esthera, and are looking forward to returning in mid-July - should be a lot warmer than March!

We spent a wonderful 3 days at this Hotel of which I highly recommend. If you arrive by train at Central Station you will not need to take anymore transport if you are staying at the beautiful Estherea as it is only a 15 minute walk from the station, 5minute walk from Dam Square and within 5-15 minute walk from the main attractions of the city i.e. Anne Frank house, Van Gogh museum etc. The Hotel is truly beautiful, with wonderful staff who always have a smile and friendly welcome for you. The complimentary tea, coffee and very tasty hot chocolate is a godsend when you come in with aching feet from all that sightseeing and shopping you have just done! Just pour yourself a drink and relax in the sumptuous reception area before going up to your room which was rather smaller than I expected, but immaculate which is important to me as I am VERY fussy!! The bathrooms are spotless too. There is also a good sized TV with plenty of choice of channels for everyone, last year in Tenerife all we got was News24!! And there is also a safe. Breakfasts are plentiful and very tasty with an excellent choice for everyone, English and continental, you serve yourself and can eat as much as you want. Our view over the canal was wonderful. It is in a lovely quiet backwater, you can hardly believe that you are only a 5 minute walk from the bustling shops, museums, cafes, bars and resaurants. Absolutely highly recommended for all.

Have just returned from our European holiday, and am more and more convinced about the advantages of staying at family run hotels.
The beautiful Estherea hotel is a family run hotel on the quiet Singel canal in the heart of amsteredam. The main shopping and nightlife areas i.e. Dam square, Leidseplein etc. are a few steps away and one can never imagine that the hustle and bustle is so close to this tranquil and pretty neighbourhood.
The hotel itself is classy and elegant, and the beautiful reception and bar area with its rich furnishing and beautiful furniture resembles an upper class country home, warm and inviting. The stunning aquarium in the reception area which my daughter fell in love with, is lovingly tended too by the owner himself.
We were met at the door by the friendliest porter in the world (he helps at the bar too), and he pretty much set the tone for the rest of the staff who were extremely corteous and helpful.
The room was bright airy and plain lovely, with great use of space and very rich tapestry. The beds were very comfortable and the linen of good quality. The bathroom, although slightly small, had all one required , fluffy fresh towels and complimentry toilettries of good quality. Needless to say, everything was very clean.
The complimentry coffee, tea and hot chocolate facility (all day long} near the reception, alongwith fresh fruit and cakes was very welcome as we would pop in and out of the hotel with our shopping bags. A nice touch indeed !!
Definately recommend this hotel and would absolutely stay here again when i re-visit Amsterdam.
