The Ambassade Hotel is an authentic Amsterdam family-run hotel. It is situated in fifteen 17thcentury 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 guests24-hour room service, and the front desk is staffed 24/7.

Koan Float is located at the Herengracht – just a few doors away from the hotel.


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.

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.

    Lovely hotel in the middle of the city

    Very private and quiet.

    'Double' bed was not perfect (gap in between) but was better the second night after we raised the subject.

    Charming cosy hotel overlooking the canal.

    Good location, walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants. Nicely decorated room with view of the canal. Staff helpful and attentive. Liked the fresh flowers as you enter the hotel and lobby. Charming hotel with a cosy feel to it.

    I really enjoied my stay in the Ambassade hotel Amsterdam

    When I arrieved my room was not ready and I was proposed a better room for the same fee. The room was really nice, big and recently renovated. The hotel is located in the city center, very close to all Amsterdam attractions. I really enjoied my stay there.

    Great location.

    The staff on reception were wonderful. Made our day trips so much easier as they gave us very useful maps and information. They were very helpful and courteous.

    We were in a junior suite and it was noisy because of people on the streets.

    Best location in Town

    Great location!!! Super comfortable bed, private room access for privacy. Would definitely stay there again!

    Before 1am it's a bit noisy if you are on the canal (street) side.

    Romance is alive and well and living in Amsterdam

    LADY magazine in the UK listed this hotel as one of the top ten romantic hotels in Europe and having stayed there, I can honestly say this is the impression my wife and I were left with. Simply put, this is a fabulous hotel.

    The only minus point is that we had to leave at the end of our stay!

    Great hotel

    We arrived at the airport and took the train into the Central Station then the tram. The Ambassade is close to the tram stop, on a canal and was the perfect location for our night in the city. The staff were very friendly and the room was lovely. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Perfect hotel for a getaway in Amsterdam

    Located on a canal in a beautiful district in the city with most attractions and restaurants within easy walking distance. Staff was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and helpful.

    A lovely stay in one of the best locations in amsterdam.

    great location, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely as well as delicious.

    We had a lovely view from room 49. Hotels could invest in a new hair dryer and bath towels.

    Beautiful historic hotel on Amsterdam's canals

    Great location, friendly and knowledgeable staff, free wireless internet in room, rooms with beautiful high ceilings.

    Triple room (bed + removable cot) was a bit too small, making it difficult to find places for our luggage.


    Families with older children augustus 2010

    nice hotel, parking problems can be solved

    very helpful and friendly staff

    parking in this area is a problem. Car-parks nearby takes 48 or 49€ /24h and 4 or 4,50/h. Car.parks at the outskirt of the town are much chaeper 15€/24h but it is not comfortable with luggage and children in the bus and on foot. Best alternative: the offer from the hotel : your car is taken from the hotel and brought back for 30€/24h and 2€/h we made good expience with this arrangement.

    Great staff in a charming hotel.

    The staff is wonderful. Everyone we dealt with was courteous and helpful. The hotel itself is charming and the rooms well appointed.

    Because of its historical character, it would be difficult to manage for people with disabilities.

    Peacfull stay with the help of the very friendly staff.

    So friendly staff, so concerned about their customer's satisfaction, clean and well furnished rooms, free WiFi 24/7, plus free internet at business center.

    No resturant at the hotel, and you have to leave the room keys at the recieption.

    A really happy stay

    Excellent and helpful service from all the people we met. We loved the suite and the wonderful view over the canal. The enormous bed was the most comfortable we've ever slept in.

    Being English we would have liked to have been able to make our own tea in our room - but it's a small point!
