Good Hotel Guide Review
A long-time Guide favourite, ‘it has to be one of our favourite hotels in Europe’, this hotel is spread among ten 17th-century gabled houses on two of the city”s finest canals (Herengracht and Singel). One returning visitor this year told us: ‘I forgot to endorse your listing of the Ambassade which we have just returned from. We must have stayed there intermittently for 25 years or more – nothing ever changes, and it is a small miracle that it stays just as good as ever – one of the best city hotels.’ Its beautiful location is quiet and peaceful, yet within walking distance of Amsterdam”s major attractions. The canal houses have been carefully restored to maintain their authentic character and all rooms and suites have been stylishly furnished and decorated. Each room has its own unique character and specific charm. The “super-efficient, friendly” staff offer a “seamless service” (regular guests” preferences recorded; umbrellas, bicycle hire and city maps provided). The Ambassade Hotel has an extensive modern art collection with the avant-garde Cobra movement as its focal point. Public rooms have tall windows, crystal chandeliers, clocks and paintings. “The sitting room is charming.” The newly renovated library/bar showcases a collection of more then 4,000 books, all first editions signed by authors who have stayed at the Ambassade Hotel (Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie, Umberto Eco, etc). There is a unique float and massage centre “Koan Float” nearby. Other features include 24 hour room service, tasteful lounges where guests can relax as well as a 17th century style meeting hall. Breakfast (7 until 11 am; 11.30 at weekends) in the beautiful breakfast room is lavish. Many good restaurants nearby, but from summer 2015 the hotel will open its own restaurant, a French brasserie run by chef Erik Zonjee.
