“17th Century waterfront hotel in the heart of Amsterdam's central canal district. A clever conversion of 10 canal houses, rooms are Louis XVI in style, filled with traditional antiques and complemented with modern art. There's fine dining at Brasserie Ambassade and drinks in the library. A city gem.”

Hotel Review

A strikingly elegant restoration of ten 17th-century merchants’ houses overlooking the Herengracht, with particularly fine views of the canal through the large windows of the graceful salon and high-ceilinged breakfast room. The comfortable bedrooms, furnished with antiques, are popular with writers, whose works are showcased in the hotel’s own library. Guests are well cared for by a remarkably attentive staff.
