Fantastic stay at the Ambassade. I would definitely return again. The location was best, close to everything going on but actually quiet and away from the crowds on a busy Sail 2015 weekend. Service was excellent.

Excellent!”
We loved the Ambassade Hotel! Booking was very easy, and friendly. We requested a queen bed with a canal view. While requests were not guaranteed, our room was lovely. Large, with actually a Queen bed and a twin. AND, a canal view! The staff was welcoming and friendly. We were given touring suggestions including a canal cruise which was lovely. The bathroom was spacious by European standards, and the amenities were very nice. The lobby and public areas were comfortable and interesting including art and a literary collection. We did not take advantage of a discount at the restaurant, but it looked very nice, and the menu was good. I would definitely recommend the Ambassade hotel!

Good location, great value, clean, friendly helpful staff , spacious comfy room”
I had no idea where to book , I was already in the city , only visiting Amsterdam purely to chill out at coffee shops . Since there is plenty around I just used Googled somewhere near to me and picked a "middle of the road" price but was a little anxious that it wouldn't be very nice. I couldn't of been more wrong. Great location, plenty shops , coffee shops, restaurants , sites and a lovely park all within ten mins walk, some on your doorstep too. Great room very clean , spacious and super comfortable bed. Will definitely return.

Beautiful hotel on Herengracht canal with a publishing connection ”
We really enjoyed our stay at the Ambassade in February 2016. Not only is the location very central - right on the Herengracht canal - but the hotel itself is lovely and well-appointed. The hotel is actually two old houses joined together, and has a history of being where famous authors stay when they come to Amsterdam. So, the hotel's little library is filled with autographed copies of books by authors from all over the world. The rooms are nice but for my taste the furnishings are a little too much brocade and dark velvet for me. However, the bed was quite comfortable and I did enjoy the Bulgari soaps & shampoos. I know Amsterdam is an expensive city, but I've stayed in comparable luxury hotels and I'm not sure that the price-point for the Ambassade is worth it for what you get. However, if you want a nice and quietly luxurious hotel in the center of town and have the money to spend, this is a great option.

New Year stay”
The service was impeccable and equivalent to a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was thumbs up all the way. Unfortunately we stayed during the New Year period which was not pleasant as the fire works were going off until 1am. I think that these are heritage buildings hence they cannot have double glazed windows. We can even hear conversations from passers by. However, despite all these issues, I would still come again.

Wonderful place to stay”
Clean, charming, lovely helpful staff. Filled with stunning visual art from the Post WW2 "Cobra" school, everywhere you look. Game room with chess and backgammon and a bar placed in rooms lined with the signed books by thousands of writers who stay there. The hotel owns 10 canal houses along the block on Herengraght, one of the main canals downtown. Near soho-like boutiques, galleries, cheese shops, cool restaurants, the flower market. Our room was up a short stoop from the sidewalk with very good king-sized bed, big bathroom with both tub and separate shower and two sinks, and great view of the canal. Hotel also owns a massage center down the block. Restaurant looked very nice, but more upscale than we wanted. The whole place is understated elegance.

Room temperature”
Everything about this hotel was excellent with the exception of one very important thing: the temperature of the room. The windows were large and draughty and when we arrived it was cold. The radiator was under the window and the curtains covered it completely when drawn. We therefore had the choice of having the curtains closed, with little effect from the heating, or of having the curtains open which meant everone could see in to the room. The radiator valve was difficult to regulate which meant the room was either far too warm or very cold. This is largely due to the draughts from the windows which had frames which didn't fit well. We understand that double-glazing is not an option due to the heritage status of the neighbourhood but in this case much more effective draughtproofing is required.

Great place in Amsterdam ”
Centrally located, I found this hotel had rooms considerably larger than most hotels in Europe. The hotel, like many consists of several old building forming an unusual "rabbit warren" however very easy to navigate through, all areas were very clean, it has a fabulous bar and the attendant was excellent. The restaurant was excellent, service was well above my expectations, meals were well presented and the variety was good.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a vacation ending in Amsterdam/. We decided that we wanted it to be special and we picked The Ambassade for the location and asked for a canal view room. We child not have asked for more. Our room was beautiful. The view as anticipated was superb, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was great, and we dined one night in their restaurant and the food, well, terrific. Staff was attentive and so polecat and the location could not be beat. We hope to go again and would not hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ambassade Hotel. This is a very cute and quaint older building, but the rooms are up to date, clean and well functioning. The staff was very helpful with tourist recommendations. The breakfast spread is very impressive, especially if you like cheese and champagne. Amsterdam is a great city and I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

although the rooms can be a little small(normal for amsterdam), everything about this place was great. the service was amazing. rooms clean and comfortable and all the attractions were only a short walk from the hotel. being right on the canal in the centre of amsterdam in a boutique hotel with the koan float (their dayspa feature next door) is the ideal trip to amsterdam.
