After several extensions and renovations, the most recent of which took place in 2007, the hotel has been finetuned into a tasteful hotel featuring modern, comfortable facilities. Crystal chandeliers, an aquarium and sumptious fabrics all amass to a feeling of well-being.

    The room was very small and overlooked another room.

    “My tip: Request a room away from the stairs and elevator”

    Great hotel, great staff and great service

    The hotel is very well situated on the side of a canal and close to all the local attractions. Nothing is too much for the staff, and the hotel lobby, bar, restaurant and public areas are all very tastefully decorated.

    Our stay was too short Wish we d stayed longer (

    “My tip: Very cosy and romantic place with great staff Will definitely come back ”

    Wonderful well located hotel.

    Beautiful hotel located on the Singel canal. Front desk was always helpful. Coffee, hot chocolate, pastries and candy were available around the clock. Our room was nicely decorated with a huge bathroom. Sitting areas were welcoming and the bar was lots of fun.

    Since our room overlooked the canal and we had our windows opened, it could be noisy but we knew that could be the case. A canal view room is wonderful.

    Charming, safe hotel to stay.

    Staff is extremely helpful. Each guest gets an iPad to use free of charge. Location perfect to get around city. Hotel is very clean and charming. Breakfast food excellent. Great coffee/hot chocolate machine in lobby. Cookies in the afternoon for snack. Felt very safe and comfortable area on ground floor to sit.

    Computer in lobby which has only printing options very outdated. Needs to be upgraded.

    “My tip: Dam square is well within walking distance. Tour office and restaurants are there. Great food on the fifth floor of department store there. ”

    un enchantement!

    Very good hotel,with excellent location; the hotel is very calm and I appreciated the kindness of the personal.

    The price of the breakfast is too high for somebody who does not eat much in the morning.

    “My tip: Restaurant " the five flees" which is 5minutes of the hotel”

    It was a lovely stay - fabulous hotel, beautifully decorated and the nicest staff.

    A Gem of a Hotel

    Attentive staff , excellent service. The ambience of the hotel was welcoming and all areas exceptionally well decorated and maintained. The buffet breakfast was very extensive catering for all dietary tastes and refreshed regularly . The standard of the food / beverages was of a high quality.

    The back lift always had a slight odour - damp rising from cellar? Due to a noise problem (other guest , not the hotel) we changed rooms and the second de-luxe room was slightly smaller but this information was stated on the website - rooms vary due to the nature of the building. Very minor quibbles, overall very satisfied.

    “My tip: Restaurant Haesje Claes , Spuistraat 273-5. Only 3 mins around the corner from the Estherea with a wide-ranging menu, reasonably priced , great service.”

    Jewel on the Canal

    Great friendly staff, excellent decor and a quiet central location with amenities nearby. The desk staff was courteous and helpful with local knowledge questions. I will definitely be back!


    Families with older children juli 2012

    Old world comfort and elegance.

    The lounge/bar is really comfortable, and staff are very welcoming. I like the two computers in the lobby with free internet access as an alternative to the paid wifi in the rooms. Rooms are small by international standards, but very comfortable in a grand style. Extremely clean.

    “My tip: Ask for a top floor room if you want a lot of natural light.”

    A sweet Dutch treat.

    We were so happy with our experience at The Hotel Estherea that we wrote the owners/managers a letter of appreciation. It offered the finest Dutch hospitality with many little touches in decor and cuisine. My husband felt that we were living in a picture perfect post card setting. We have already recommended the hotel to others and plan to visit again.

    “My tip: The central location of the hotel makes it within easy walking distance of most tourist sites and public transportation. There were many medium priced restaurants in the neighborhood.”

    Hotel was very clean and the staff was most helpful with any of our needs. Time and again they went out of their way to help whenever we wanted. The location is super and our canal facing room was beautiful. May is a good time to come to this magic city.

    No 24/7 room service along with do dinner service. The breakfast was Ok at best.

    “My tip: Bring you're own drinks for evening”

    Wonderful stay - great location - good value in Amsterdam

    Thank you for a most enjoyable stay! We found your staff to be very welcoming and helpful. The bed was very very comfortable and I loved the outside window panel that provided a peek into the community of Amsterdam passing by. Thanks!

    When we book a double bed we expect one, cannot stand the idea of twin beds pushed together.
