We were absolutely delighted with our stay at the Ambassade. We had a canal view room on the second floor and arrived on my 60h birthday to find a small box of lovely Belgian chocolates and a sweet note from the staff. The accommodations were simply lovely with a beautifully appointed room. The bathroom was generous and very well designed...

This is my 4th or 5th stay at Ambassade. I keep returning because the service is outstanding and the location is right in the heart of the most beautiful part of Amsterdam. Also, I am an author, and my book, along with 4,000 other books written by guests of the hotel, is in their newly renovated library. This visit, we...

My visit to this hotel started with the small issue: a few days before arrival they e-mailed to me asking for my arrival info, and offered airport transfer (very expensive, instead just take a train and walk from the station - about 20 min). They knew when I was arriving. So, when I arrived at 1:20 PM, I was told...

I just recently stayed at the Ambassade Hotel for a family vacation in Amsterdam. It was by far the best hotel experience I have ever had. Linda, Larz, and Yost at the front desk were always super friendly and ready to help with anything we needed. Every restaurant recommendation they made was amazing. I also have to say the included...

When you plan to travel to Amsterdam, please get a quote from this hotel. The personnel are friendly and competent. The location is terrific. The restaurant is special. The breakfast is worth every Euro. The rooms are unique, and you may want to view your assigned room before you sign in for it. It may involve stairs. The bartenders and...

Returned for a second stay because I absolutely loved this hotel the first time around. Did not even look for other choices. The location is superb for walking far and wide to all sites, catching a canal boat, eating, shopping. I love everything about the hotel common areas and each bedroom (canal view). The service is just so genuinely generous...

Due to time limitations we spent only one day at the Ambassade Hotel. It is a really fine place to stay. It is beautifully appointed, well-located, and the staff members were consistently professional and very helpful. Note also that the price was very reasonable. We stayed in a first floor room with a canal view. The room was beautifully decorated...

This small hotel set in several historic, exceptionally restored houses along the canal brings together all the elements needed to enjoy and wonderful stay in Amsterdam. It is located in a quiet location in easy walking distance to most of what you will want to see in the city center. As others have mentioned, the staff was exceptional. They were...

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
