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.
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!! :)
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
The location of this hotel is ideal as you can easily walk to the Museums, Central Station or Amsterdam's famous flea market. Be sure to get a room with a terrace to offset the small room size. The staff are charming and attentive. The king sized bed with lovely bedding was a treat.
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!
My friend and I stayed 2 nights before continuing through Europe, but truly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are small and the stairs are hilariously steep (expected in Amsterdam), but we really enjoyed our stay!
Nice hotel and staff. Hotel is in excellent area and has very nice exterior but looks dated inside. The inside whilst showing large local paintings and Arte Decor is very clean but has a rather tired outlook.
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.
