Expert review of Ambassade Hotel

Impeccably elegant and civilised canalfront hotel favoured by literary types.

Close to Amsterdam's publishing houses, the long-established Ambassade has put up many authors over the years. But it's also a great choice for anyone wanting a classy yet unflashy base in the city centre.

Location: 

Spread over ten 17th-century canal houses along prime stretches of the Herengracht and Singel waterways.

Bedrooms: 

The 59 rooms dotted throughout the property successfully combine the old with the more modern in the form of antiques and chandeliers, and modern art. They come in all shapes and sizes, with the most atmospheric being attic spaces up under the gables.
