      Cosy, cute, warm, quiet, luxury... perfect stay”

      After researching for weeks on end on hotels in Amsterdam I decided to book hotel Estherea after reading all the great positive reviews (and checking out the pics too).My wife and I stayed for 1 night (11/12/18) and where immediately impressed and blown away once we entered the hotel lobby area. Our heads didn’t stop spinning as there is so many beautiful things to look at. While we waiting for a max of 5mins while our room was finished getting ready (we where allowed to check in early as the availability allowed us too) we where invited to sit at the hotels free refreshments area,which is so nice and relaxing. Coffee machines, scones, beautiful ice tea etc. From the word go you notice All the little nice xtra things, filling up your coffee in a very cute hotel estherea take away coffee cup to the quality cakes and treats to tuck into..the list goes on.The room was so darn beautiful and impressive we could live there forever. Even the corridors and x2 lifts where so cosy and beautiful.

      Amazing !!”

      I recently travelled to Amsterdam and stayed at Hotel Estherea for 3 nights as a group of 8 girls. Could not fault the hotel in any respect. Everything was perfect. The staff are also fantastic and in particular Marthijn who was Guest Relations. From before we arrived he was amazing in dealing with our requests. The hotel is extremely central to everything and is spotlessly clean. The coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cakes and pastries that are served in the lobby are an added bonus! Would definitely return to hotel next time visiting Amsterdam.

      Hotel Estherea is a wonderful hotel in a great location. The staff at Estherea is amazing, and was very welcoming. Even though we arrived early, they were able to whisk us to our room right away. Breakfast is a wonderful presentation and the breakfast room is modern with the feel of Old Amsterdam. Every room is different at the hotel, and you truly feel like you are being welcomed into someone’s home with a cozy feel but every modern amenity you could want. We will be staying at Estherea again this summer and are looking forward to it.

      First time in amsterdam ”

      For our first visit to Amsterdam the hotel Estherea was an excellent base from which to explore. Everything we wanted to see in easy walking distance. The staff is very helpful and accommodating, the entire hotel is clean and comfortable. The value for the money is fine as Amsterdam is similar to many major cities that get lots of tourists i.e.expensive. Our room faced an inner window, hard to explain, but as a result we did not have a view or access to much freaks air as the inner shaft was covered with a glass roof. If we visit again I would ask for a room on the outside edges of the building.

      This hotel made our first trip to Amsterdam even more amazing. Everything about the hotel was perfect, from the friendly front desk service, the bar and staff, the rooms, tea, cookies, location, to-go room scent. It was wonderful spending an evening sitting out on the padded bench in front of the hotel room just people watching. The bar staff is so great they brought us snacks and drinks while we sat out on 'our porch'. We loved Amsterdam but this hotel just made our stay. We WILL be back and will choose none other but Estherea.

      We had quite a lengthy stay at Estherea. It is now my 'go to' hotel for that beautiful city. Our room was lush, comfortable and spotless. The bar is open 24 hours and very, very accomodating. The interiors are luscious. But, most importantly, the staff ( in particular the guest relations host Martin!!!) were beyond helpful. They/he got us tickets to sold out events, suggested delicious restaurants, arranged drivers and generally made us feel at home in Amsterdam. I give this hotel my very highest of endorsements!

      I can't recommend Hotel Estherea enough! A business acquaintance referred the hotel to us and our group of 6 had a fantastic 2 days in Amsterdam prior to boarding our riverboat cruise ship. Hotel is in a great location for dining, shopping and site seeing. But most of all, the hotel is beautifully decorated! The peacock colors and elegant but whimsical accents makes you feel like you are in a charming castle. No need to go out for breakfast, hotel buffet is plentiful and yummy. I recommend without hesitation.

Lots of nice places to eat and drink nearby. Very close to the gorgeous shopping streets of Amsterdam too. And lastly our room was so plush and ever so pretty. Staff are also so very helpful and knowledgeable. I cant sing the praises enough for this little boutique hotel! Would not stay anywhere else.

The staff are so helpful, the facilities excellent including free coffee, tea and biscuits in the lounge, , the location right in the centre of Amsterdam so we could walk everywhere, our room (deluxe) was of a very high standard with jacuzzi bath, the bed the best we have slept in at a hotel. Top tip unless you are very hungry the room service breakfast options are cheaper than the buffet in the bar.

      Quaint and Beautiful Hotel in a Superb Location”

      I love this hotel. It's small but suited our needs quite well. I traveled to Amsterdam with my 5 yr old daughter so the room was adequate. It was such a beautiful room, all blue with chandeliers and it was facing the canal. It was so picturesque and was everything I imagined what "living" by the canal felt like. The staff were extremely attentive and they had a little surprise for my daughter. This was unexpected and it made my daughter very happy. They also have unlimited tea/coffee/biscuits/chocolates by the bar (they do not have a mini bar in the room). You could enjoy it while relaxing in their nice library. The location was superb, we could easily access museums by walking or public transport. It was also a short walk/tram ride from the Amsterdam Centraal (where we caught the train to Schipol airport). You could have the breakfast at the restaurant but we chose to have Dutch Pancakes which was a short 5 min walk from the hotel. No regrets!

      My 15 year old daughter & I stayed at Hotel Estherea & absolutely loved it! The room was beautifully decorated, the bathroom very roomy (even double sinks plus a shower door that covered most of the tub so that water wasn't all over the floor after a shower). The amenities were great too....gym, water (even flavored water), coffee (lots of different types of coffee drinks), cookies, community rooms (a library, lovely lobby & sitting area) available all day for your use. Free bottled water in the rooms! And luggage storage. Very yummy breakfast (hot items too like scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage in addition to meats, cheeses, pastries etc). All in addition to being a really beautiful hotel (w/in walking distance to the 9 streets in the Jordan, Anne Frank house & countless yummy restaurants). I'd book Hotel Estherea again in a heartbeat! Great stay!

      From the minute you enter the hotel, you are met with luxury coupled with efficiency. The hotel staff were extremely welcoming, and it provided a peaceful haven after walking around Amsterdam! We booked the cheapest room, but in no way was this basic. It was very well appointed, tastefully decorated, and the bathroom was huge! The coffee machine in reception provided extremely good coffee, wouldn't have guessed it was from a machine, and there were also chocolates, sweets and cookies available. All in all, this hotel provided a wonderful base for exploring Amsterdam. It was easy to find, right on the Singel canal, and I would definately stay there again. I cannot recommend it too much! I did not try the breakfast, so therefore cannot comment, but it did look good

      The cab to the hotel was 20 min approx 50-60 Eu, which was worth the price w/ luggage. We were escorted up to get a review how the lights/power work, which was very helpful- different than the USA. We had room 217 over looking the street and it was quiet. There were several perks like flavored water, juice , chocolates, baked goods and the coffee/espresso machines. There were umbrellas to use and best of all a free smart phone! Free calls anywhere and the GPS and internet was fantastic, since our cell co had horrible Wifi service. There was also free evening chocolate bags & the drinks at the bar were VERY reasonable. We also had free breakfast including, fried , scramble and hard boil eggs, bacon,sausage, several breads products, fresh fruit, yogurt cereal and the best fresh squeezed OJ, along with cheeses and lunch meat. The walk to shopping, Red light district, and several sights were only 15 min away. The Botanical Garden and a boat ride were a must. Thank you Hotel Estherea
