I've been staying at this hotel on and off since 1989 - it is a great combination of old world charm with all the modern facilities one requires. Great library / bar area, great breakfast room - many international newspapers each day. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff to help you with.
Not particularly expensive, yet it is five star all the way - I can totally recommend.
No designer had a hand in creating the unique ambience of the Ambassade Hotel. It just grew, from one 17th century canalside …More
Great location. Very clean; everyone helpful and nice, but this was not four star accommodation. I would stay again, the price was reasonable and everything was fine. No one would be sorry they stayed here.
We came for a 'girly' break and stayed here for a Monday-to-Friday trip: junior suite, with robes, slippers, comfortable 'sitting' area, canal view, etc. Couldn't have picked a better place as it's wonderfully positioned, close to shops, cafes and restaurants but without being noisy or scuzzy. Breakfasts were good, the room clean and well services and staff lovely. Will definitely stay here again and bring the husbands, and will recommend to others!
We booked this room at short notice - very good location, nice rooms and helpful staff. Only downside was we felt the room could have been cleaner - dirty coffee table and no toilet roll - but other than that it was very good
"Excellent Hotel, Close to the Center of Amsterdam"
Reception and food service and housekeeping are particularly good
Specific events include a boat tour of the canals offered by the hotel with full bar.
What a beautiful way to see the city!
The Concierge desk is able to provide excellent options on how to travel to and from the hotel.
I will most definitely return.
The hotel was very nice - slightly out of the centre which was a shame.
The hotel staff were mainly nice, especially the two gentleman, one which checked us in and one which sorted out our taxi for the following morning, very chatty and friendly.
The lady who checked us out wasn't as efficient or friendly, I know nobody likes working on a Sunday but still.
Our room was on the lowest floor which was fine, it was very spacious and clean, very quiet considering it was at street level, the bad was massive and very comfortable bar the pillows which seems a really daft thing to say but they were too big for our heads and this made it uncomfortable.
The bathroom was perfect, everything you could want and a massive bath!! :)
The classic Amsterdam image of stately canals, the Canal Loop is principally the Herengracht and Keizersgracht, lined with gracious tall 17th and 18th-century houses. Some of these are now museums, most notably the eccentric Kattenkabinet. The Amstel is a more down-to-earth waterway, lined with houseboats and famous for its classic much–photographed Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge). The floating Flower Market is also a much-loved canal feature.
