I have been staying at this hotel since the 1980s but I hadn't been back for many years. Coming back to this hotel did not disappoint and was like coming home. But this hotel has even improved since I was last here and that is hard to believe. First, the location is set in one of the nicest parts of the canal rings with the busy (but not overly touristic) Spuiplein just five minutes away. You can easily get here from the Central Station by walking 25 minutes or taking the Metro (to Rokin) or Tram (to Spui) and having a few blocks walk. You are also in the part of the canal rings called "The Nine Streets" that has plenty of great shops, restaurants, and bars. Upon entering the hotel exudes an air of sophistication. This privately owned hotel is served by an outstanding staff that are both professional and friendly. The hotel is considered a "literary" hotel and is well know in both the publishing and news media communities. But even more interesting is the hotel's collection of modern art from the CoBrA movement that is found in every space of the hotel. Even if you are not staying in the hotel, the art is worth visiting. Then the rooms -- to my taste the essence of old world elegance. Think of this place like a Dutch master painting. The room is fully appointed but is not meant for business, it is meant for relaxing. From the moment you enter until you leave, you feel privileged to stay at this hotel.

Hotel's Favourite
I absolutely adored my stay at the Ambassade. I had a lovely room on the canal which was the perfect place to stay. I also had a delightful lunch in the restaurant which was delicious and well priced. I’ve probably made about 50 trips to Amsterdam in the last decade, and the Ambassade is certainly the place where I would like to stay for the next 50.

It was our first trip to Amsterdam and we weren't sure what to expect. We couldn't have picked a more perfect hotel to make a first impression. The location, the staff, the room was exquisitely beautiful. We had the orange room with a canal view. The heated floors in the bathroom was a nice surprise as it was rainy and wet the first 2 days. Walk to Central Station and all around from the hotel. We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful time with personalized service at every turn. Staff knew our names after one day. Rooms were delightful with all amenities one would expect plus. Would love to come back. Restaurant and bar were delightful and the art was an added benefit. First class in every respect. Location was in a beautiful spot in the centrum, walking distance from everywhere.
