Ambassade Hotel

Rated 9.2 in 901 reviews. 56 rooms.


The privately owned Ambassade Hotel has an extraordinary charm, style and individuality. But most important of all is that the Ambassade Hotel will really make you feel at home.

The Ambassade Hotel is an authentic Amsterdam family-run hotel. It is situated in fifteen
historic 17th-century canal houses on the Herengracht- and the Singel-Canals, in the centre
of 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 56 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 muchpraised 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.
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. It 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.
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.
The Ambassade Hotel is located in ‘The Nine Streets', one of Amsterdam's best known and
charming shopping areas. 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 wellknown museums are also just a short walk away. Or, you could ride one of our stylish
Ambassade rental bicycles.
This is our guests' favorite part of Amsterdam, according to independent reviews.
Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.8 for a two-person trip.
We speak your language!
Ambassade Hotel has been welcoming guests since Mar 18, 2010.
