#2 of 419 in Amsterdam
2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Ambassade Hotel is an authentic Amsterdam family-run hotel. It is situated in fifteen 17th-century canal houses on the Herengracht- and Singel canal, amidst the Amsterdam canal district. The central location of the Ambassade Hotel offers you the ideal base to explore the wonderful atmosphere of the Amsterdam canals. Enjoy the charm and comfort of a unique boutique hotel, in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The Ambassade Hotel offers 55 elegant rooms and suites, all uniquely decorated with a mix of modern and classic interior. Colourful fabrics are stylishly combined with artworks from the famous CoBrA art movement. The Ambassade Hotel owns a large collection more than 800 CoBrA artworks, and a number of works of Amsterdam Impressionists, which can be admired both in the hotel rooms and in all public areas. The public areas were renovated a few years ago by famous Spanish architectural firm Cruz y Ortiz, known for their much-praised renovation of the Rijksmuseum. Each room has free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, a television, seating area and a desk. We offer our guests 24-hour room service, and the front desk is staffed 24/7. On the 1st floor you will find Brasserie Ambassade, where the kitchen is run by chef Tom van Buuren and his team. In this remarkable Brasserie - decorated with numerous works of art, large chandeliers and with a stunning view over the canal – we invite you to enjoy dishes inspired by French cuisine, but with a modern twist. For our hotel guests, special rates are applied to unique floating sessions at ‘Koan Float’, the wellness centre of the Ambassade Hotel. Also, the wellness centre offers 14 different massage types. Koan Float is located at the Herengracht – just a few doors away from the hotel. In the Library Bar you will find an extensive collection of more than 5.000 books, all signed by famous authors during their stay at the Ambassade Hotel. In the adjacent Library Lounge you can enjoy a drink, play a game of chess, or have a small meeting. The Ambassade Hotel is located in ‘The Nine Streets', one of Amsterdam's best known and charming shopping areas. For example, visit our books- & art store 'Samsara Books & Art', located just around the corner. Dam square and the Royal Palace are located within 500 metres from the hotel. Famous shopping streets, the popular neighbourhood ‘de Jordaan’, and art galleries are all located practically around the corner. The Anne Frank House and other well-known museums are also just a short walk away. Or, you could ride one of our stylish Ambassade rental bicycles.

We enjoyed a 4-night stay in a luxurious canal-view room (#53) in May 2022. We were drawn to the art collection in all the public spaces, and the signed first editions from writers who have stayed here (find your favorite author!). The bar is a great place to relax; be sure to try the genever, a Dutch spirit akin to gin. We only had breakfast at the Brasserie, but the food and service were excellent. Front desk staff are unfailingly helpful. Highly recommend!

The great reviews this hotel received are spot on. We had an enjoyable 4 night stay in Amsterdam (our first) and really loved this hotel. The breakfast buffet is wonderful, the location is perfect and our room overlooking the canal (room 74) was exceptional. The 2 things I will remember fondly are the library bar, please try the Spanish coffee, and the amazing staff that helped with this trip us every step of the way. And although everyone was great, Wim is by far the best. Thank you Ambassade Hotel for a lovely time in beautiful Amsterdam. We can't wait to return. Anthony and Jacqueline Follo, United States

Stayed 4 nights, May 10 to 14. Excellent location (walk everywhere but not in the middle of any chaos), excellent service by all (with special shout-outs to Wilhelm and both bartenders, expert drinks), excellent breakfast (great way to start each day), excellent art (stunningly amazing), excellent drinks and bar, just an excellent time. Definitely would stay again. Loved every aspect of our stay. We stayed in room 83.

We had an excellent experience at the Ambassade hotel. the rooms are small (it's Amsterdam so I think that's usual ) but very clean. The staff is courteous and helpful. I particularly want to mention William. He was so nice and so helpful and it felt like he just wanted us to enjoy Amsterdam. Everyone was very nice but he was even a little more. My only comment would be that while the linens are so luxurious the beds themselves seem a little old and the mattress I slept on was very saggy . But otherwise, towels were clean and plentiful, rooms were clean .

Unique writer’s hotel, great service, wonderful cuisine, kind staff. The hotel areas were filled with a superb art collection. There was a massive collection of signed books encased in glass. The staff bent over backwards. Very enjoyable.
