Ambassade Hotel

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

One of Amsterdam’s classiest traditional canal-front hotels, this heritage beauty has 56 guest rooms spread over 10 interconnected 17th-century gabled houses.

Many rooms have canal views, and are up in the eaves of the buildings amid a forest of beams. Chandeliers and antiques set the tone in the restful and elegant parquet-floored lounge and breakfast room.

The Ambassade is a favourite with writers: its library contains thousands of books signed by authors who have stayed at one time or another. If you like a heritage stay – this is a good choice.

It’s located on beautiful Herengracht, one of the city’s nicest and most atmospheric canals. It’s an ideal base to explore the city – close to all of the main attractions.
