We first stayed at the Estherea for three nights in July, after a decade-long hiatus. It was the first Amsterdam hotel we ever stayed in. We have stayed elsewhere on the half dozen trips we have made since that inaugural visit a decade ago, not because we were disappointed by the first visit, but because it always seems to be booked. And no wonder, it has undergone some serious renovation since our fist visit and entered the world of luxury boutique hotels. That said, the staff are courteous, welcoming, and not at all pretentious--which distinguishes the Estherea from other hotels. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, quiet, and air-conditioned (which given the heat wave, was a god send). The hotel is ideally located, the surrounding neighborhood offers all kinds of dining options, and it is a 15 minute walk from central station. We will never stay elsewhere.
