We stayed 5 nights in two different canal view superior rooms and have nothing but good to say about the hotel, the service, the location and the thoughtful arrangement of each of the rooms we were in. The location is perfect on the canal rings, a couple blocks to Spui square (a good place to catch trams among other things),...

Lovely boutique hotel with tremendous service by people who really care! Beautiful canal view from our room and a large room for a European hotel. The public rooms and bar are exquisitely decorated and have a wonderful art collection. When we had difficulty with our airline reservation, Femke at the front desk was fantastic in resolving our issues! When we...

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional. I had a room overlooking the canal, beautifully furnished. Heavy luggage can be awkward in the hallways. Location could not be better. Favorite hotel in Amsterdam, highly recommend it.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in September. Location was brilliant and we were able to walk just about everywhere. Very narrow cobble stone road in front of the hotel so its a bit of a quick get out and get in if you get there in a taxi. The hotel has one secured parking spot located about a...

It is great reading you enjoyed the Ambassade Hotel, sorry it was only one night. It would be really nice seeing you back for a longer stay, maybe in springtime? With best regards from Amsterdam, Eelclo Douma, Ambassade Hotel

We spent 3 nights in Amsterdam, asked for and were given a room with a canal view. The room used space imaginatively, giving a cathedral-like quality via high roof and twinkling chandelier which caught the street light and gave a starlight effect on the ceiling. Graceful decor, helpful staff, good food; will come again.

This hotel definitely enhanced my stay in Amsterdam. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean, spacious, wonderful views of the canal, and in a central location. The dining was REALLY good.. Would definitely stay again

A Charming hotel with friendly staff, an intellectual atmosphere and a fantastic restaurant. We do recommend you to sit down for a drink or a game of chess in the library bar. It's location in the heart of the city doesn't hurt either.

We travelled to five countries and this was our favorite hotel. From the outside, it appears as one building, but about five different buildings have been connected together, providing quaint hallways, zigs and zags to our room. The room was beautifully and tastefully decorated--a welcome place to crash after the end of a busy day. We spent time in the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Over the years, the Ambassade Hotel has expanded considerably. Starting with just one canal-side building in 1953, it now has 57 hotel rooms distributed among 10 of these buildings. Eight of these canal-side homes are on the "Herengracht" canal, while two others are located on the "Singel" canal. Other buildings are in use by the Ambassade Hotel too, but for other purposes: a few houses further along the Herengracht is the hotel's Float & Massage Centre known as Koan Float and 150 meters further along the Singel canal you will find the hotel's conference room. Except for the building at 335 Herengracht, all the canal-side buildings are physically interconnected. So as not to unnecessarily damage the original character of these canal-side homes, small sets of stairs and landings can be found at various places in the halls and in some of the rooms themselves to bridge the differences in floor elevations between the buildings. Over the years, two lifts have been installed, making all rooms easily accessible. The Ambassade Hotel has a bar and restaurant/brasserie called 'Brasserie Ambassade' that specialises in the classical French kitchen. The canal houses have been carefully restored to maintain their authentic character and all rooms and suites have been stylishly furnished and decorated. The furnishings are predominantly Louis XV/XVI style with the use of colourful fabrics and in all rooms and public areas you will find original paintings by artists from the famous CoBrA movement. ... more   less
