        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.

        Sanctuary”

        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 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!

        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.

        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.

        Unique and beautiful stay in Amsterdam”

        This hotel is a gorgeous property made of several row houses overlooking one of Amsterdam’s best canals. The rooms are plush, well furnished, with lovely views. The minibar is stocked with reasonable prices. Washcloths are provided, as well as a safe and hair dryer. Please note that although an elevator lift is available, it is likely you will have some stairs to your room unless you work it out with staff ahead of time. They do not have an ice machine but readily bring ice upon request. Even though the room was on the canal, and we were there during a festival, the room was quiet, thanks largely to an effective AC unit so the windows could be shut. They will help you book a set-price taxi to and from the airport. Our only issue was the bottom sheet did not fit on the bed, and I did not expect to have to sleep partly on the mattress because the sheet was not sufficient.

        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.

        For those who appreciate fine food and excellent service”

        This is a modern yet traditional hotel. It spreads across about 6 medieval homes, modernized but maintaining traditional décor. Modern, yet luxurious in traditional décor. Better yet, the food is excellent. Breakfast is a buffet PLUS you may order specific items if you wish. The evening meal has a short menu, but every item is thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented by a truly excellent staff, helpful, courteous, and inobtrusive. This was actually my second stay at the hotel. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
