2021 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.

Hotel's Favourite
I absolutely adored my stay at the Ambassade. I had a lovely room on the canal which was the perfect place to stay. I also had a delightful lunch in the restaurant which was delicious and well priced. I’ve probably made about 50 trips to Amsterdam in the last decade, and the Ambassade is certainly the place where I would like to stay for the next 50.

We switched to this hotel at the last minute in order to have an in house restaurant during the lock down. What an excellent move! The service at the front desk was exceptional. They assisted us with everything from carrying our bags, booking our tours, daily Covid testing and booking transportation from the airport and to our cruise ship. Everything went seamlessly, I highly recommend the restaurant. Since we could not get a Covid test for our first night in Amsterdam we ate at the hotel. All restaurants were required to close by 5pm. They saw to it that we were served quickly in order to enjoy our dinner prior to the curfew. Great service as well. It's excellent, central location right on the canal made walking about the city easier. Everything one could want was nearby.
