2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Ambassade Hotel offers the ultimate base for you to explore the magical atmosphere of Amsterdam’s canals. Discover the charm and character of this unique boutique hotel in the heart of a wonderful city. The Ambassade Hotel is an authentic Amsterdam family-run hotel, located in fifteen 17th-century canal houses on the Herengracht canal and the Singel canal. It offers 55 stylish rooms and suites, each of them uniquely decorated in a perfect combination of classic and modern. The location is truly ideal, amidst the Amsterdam canal belt and in the intimate shopping area 'De Negen Straatjes' (Nine Streets). The Ambassade Hotel is just a stone's throw away from Dam square and all the famous museums, shopping streets, and other main attractions. Ask our staff for the ‘Ambassade city bikes and explore the surroundings as the local Amsterdammers do. On the 1st floor, you will find ‘Restaurant Ambassade’ - beautifully decorated with artworks, large chandeliers, and with magnificent views over the canal. Here you can enjoy exquisite international cuisine dishes, made with local, artisan ingredients. During your stay, discover the unique collection of over 800 CoBrA artworks that can be admired in all public areas as well as in each hotel room. The hotel's ‘Library Bar’ is not only the place for a cocktail but is also a literary delight. Here you will find more than 5,000 books, each signed by famous authors who stayed at the Ambassade Hotel upon invitation of their publishers. At ‘Samsara Books & Art’, the hotel’s art- and bookstore around the corner, you will find books, gifts, and unique souvenirs. Ask for the unique ‘Art & Culture’ tours and packages, including a tour around the Art & Literature inside the hotel. Looking for a place to unwind? For hotel guests, special rates apply for relaxing float sessions at ‘Koan Float’, the wellness center of the Ambassade Hotel. Koan Float also offers fourteen types of professional massages. The staff of the Ambassade Hotel is looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you!

I recently returned from a five-night stay at the Ambassade, and I highly recommend the hotel. The Staff - both at the front desk and in the restaurant- were warm, friendly and helpful. Our triple room was spacious and very clean, and we had a lovely view of the canal. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was delicious, and the Library Bar was a great place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. The hotel location was perfect for walking around the city. I will definitely stay again when I return to Amsterdam.

Great location at the heart of the canals ring and nine streets and walking distance from Centraal train station .Clever restoration and conversion of typical historic gabled houses. Well appointed, comfortable rooms and good use of space. Hotel staff are really friendly, courteous and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and they will book tickets for you. Excellent bar in library serving great draft beers and wines by the glass. Try the Bitterballen for a tasty, filling snack with your drink. Brasserie expensive so did not eat there but there are plenty of options nearby. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Gorgeous hotel nestled along the canals of Amsterdam, a ten- to fifteen- minute walk to all of our excursions. The hotel was soup to nuts accommodating, from the way they whisked us in from the rain, handling all of our luggage to booking tickets and cabs and even managed to find a location based on a picture I was carrying. All day, every day, the staff was friendly and informative. Room along the canal is ideal, between the heated bathroom floors and cool breezes, we were in heaven. Room service super quick, and mini bar of snacks much needed for middle of the night low blood sugars. I could spend all day admiring the art and books and play the games in the library bar. Grabbed a fancy French lunch in the hotel on the first day, and it was impressive. Everything about this hotel is luxurious, without any pomp and circumstance.

Thank you for making my birthday stay at your lovely hotel so special. Your reception team made us feel really welcome & our room with canal view was perfect & quiet. Your gift on my birthday was a very thoughtful touch. We ate in your restaurant on our first evening & enjoyed it so much ( because of the quality of food & service), that we chose to eat there again on our last night. If we return to Amsterdam there’s nowhere else we’d rather stay than at the Ambassade.

Thoroughly enjoyed our short break in this fabulous hotel. Our room was full of character and welcoming with super comfy large bed and a great bathroom. The staff were all so friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The buffet breakfast was delicious as were the eggs/crepes cooked to order. Hotel is nicely located in a lovely neighbourhood with most attractions a casual stroll away. Perfect!

We were planning a 4-day stay in Amsterdam, wanted a decent hotel and the Ambassade Hotel came up several times in reviews. We booked directly with the hotel, a simple, straightforward process and received some useful, informative emails as the date of our visit approached. We were not disappointed. The hotel is excellent - friendly, helpful staff, a lovely, charming and comfortable room (we opted for canal view) and a great location in the middle of the '9 streets' (well, strictly on one edge but then, the area is just 3x3 streets and 4 canals). We did not use the restaurant, preferring to try local restaurants, but we had breakfast in the dining room and again it was excellent. Primarily 'continental' (cheeses, meats, fruits, breads) with some cooked options (mostly eggs), again helpful and friendly staff who seemed almost offended when I went to re-fill my coffee cup on my own rather than ask one of them to do it! We used the bar a couple of times for a beer or cups of tea and as above, friendly and helpful and the prices, for a hotel bar, were very reasonable (and I particularly liked the special beer on tap). We would definitely use the hotel again.
