We loved this hotel. It's located on the canal in a very central part of Amsterdam. The room was very lovely and the bed was extremely comfortable. We especially loved sitting in the small lounge near the lobby to have a drink or cappuccino in the evenings. The only consideration is that, because of its location along the canal in...

Firstly, the hotel: take a taxi from the train station - it's a long walk! The hotel is absolutely beautiful, immaculate, spotlessly clean, with wonderful staff - very helpful, fluent English (thank goodness) and charming. There is a wonderful bar area with a library (many first editions, signed by the authors - apparently this is the go-to hotel for authors),...

The hotel common areas are beautiful. Very sophisticated decor and atmosphere and excellent service. Everyone is very polite yet friendly and helpful. The library/bar is a wonderful place to have some tea or wine at the end of the day before dinner time. We had breakfast at the hotel's restaurant every day. It was delicious with a good selection of...

Everything perfect: service, bar, room. The place is filled with oustanding artworks (the owner is an important collector of the CoBrA group). Ideal hotel if you are looking for an elegant, quiet place. The brasserie is also really good.

Stayed 2 nights as sole parent with 2 children (15 and 12) in a 3 person room (#54 see pic). We were in a garret in the attic with one bed in a separate ante room. Beds were super comfy, we had a view of the canal from bed via small low level windows. All staff were exceptionally friendly and...

Lovely hotel in a beautiful, quiet and central location. Exceptional front desk service. Very comfortable and clean rooms. A friend has stayed here three times and recommended it to us - I now know why.

We got lucky with location and hotel choice on our first visit to Amsterdam. The Ambassade location is perfect for exploring this beautiful city as most areas were so accessible from here on foot. The Hotel staff were all so pleasant and helpful and we were upgraded for free to an apartment around the corner. Very happy with the overall...

This hotel ticked every box for me. The location is idyllic. You are close to everything and next to the canals on a street that looks like its from a story book. The interior of the hotel is sophisticated and relaxed. The room we had was a generous size although the double bed was just two single beds next to...

Excellent hotel at a excellent location. The price overall is not bad for the friendly service and very comfortable clean rooms. The staff really caters to their customers. The breakfast which is an extra cost is also very, very good. Will not be disappointed.

Absolutely great hotel and very good pricing. Couldn't see the hotel from the sidewalk when walking to it, but when arriving it was very welcoming and great staff. Didn't stay long so I wasn't able to use all their facility's but we got a great room on the top floor.

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
