Travellers' Choice
Located in the heart of the city, Hotel Estherea is housed in a row of historic buildings on the major canal. Behind the 17th century façade, guests find a warm welcome in comfortable surroundings. With its woolen carpets, crystal chandeliers and sumptuous furniture, the hotel is an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the bustling city.The Estherea first opened its doors in the 1940s. this family business is currently run by the third generation. Although the hotel’s comforts and facilities have been brought up to date over the past sixty years, the concept of personal service and attention remains unchanged. All 92 rooms have been recently renovated and are all accessible by elevator. Each room has its own unique character: a wonderful place to unwind a day of exploring the city.

This is a beautiful, old world style hotel with 5 star service. Unique, flower filled bar, several lounge areas, comfort of a kitty cat who doesn't mind being pet and all the staff are incredibly personable and helpful. Our room was impeccable.

Pretty hotel but reeked of weed and sulfur. Cat was cute. Reception were amazingly rude. I asked for an umbrella and a very rude reception lady said “are there none there?” then pointed to the corner. I did not know where they were. That is why I asked. Overpriced. Bad staff. Go elsewhere.

We stayed here for a week, and it was absolutely the most perfect location. It was a maximum 20 minute walk to anywhere in the city, whether the museum district, the Anne Frank house, or Central Station. Very safe and tons of restaurants and shopping nearby, including the Nine Streets district. But maybe the best part was the interior decoration of the hotel, which was absolutely beautiful. They really gave thought to every detail, from the lobby to the rooms. My only minor criticisms are that: the room we stayed in, which was a double room with a Canal view, did not have adequate space to store your clothing; and the breakfast seemed a little expensive, and so we wound up eating breakfast away from the hotel each morning. I will definitely stay here again on my return trip to Amsterdam.

Stayed at the Hotel Estheréa for a friend’s 50th birthday weekend. This hotel is amazing, the first thing you notice as you step inside, the scent and the huge chandelier. Staff are always pleasant and a special thank you to “Joanne” who booked us in. The rooms in this hotel are amazing, but we were upgraded by mistake. The hotel bar is really nice, the drinks are expensive but Amsterdam is to be fair. I would definitely recommend this hotel

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. The canal room is 100% worth the extra cost and also the room itself was decorated like a 10 star hotel. The resident brown cat was amazing, the snacks were so good, every corner of the hotel was beautiful. Amazing location never once took transportation, just walked everywhere.

Yep I postponed my flight for a day. The hotel is incredibly beautiful both in the public areas and rooms. 6 star beautiful (it's a 4). The owner obviously loves flowers reflected in the public areas (stunning chandeliers too) and floral room decoration. Each room is different to the other in colour and decoration Best hotel I've stayed in Amsterdam and I've been around 35 times, staying in around.30 hotels. And I've stayed in the 5 star Pulitzer and 717 plus a few dubious 5 stars of which Estherea was light years ahead. Lovely view of of the Singel from my room for two thirds of the price of a no view room less beautiful room in the Pulitzer for example. Bar food was limited but great and interesting write up how it started as a 12 guest house after WW2 and still in the same family I think. . Excellent check in/check out by the lovely reception staff. Only downside was the lack of attention by the very polite but non chatty bar staff. Gave up after waiting 20 minutes for a coffee after checkout and issue with waiting time couple of times before. But my hotel of choice in Amsterdam now. And if you don't believe me read the Daily Telegraph review online, scored a 9/10 same as the Ritz, London for a fraction of the price.

Disappointing experience at Hotel Estheria in Amsterdam. One particular incident that stood out was the unfriendly behavior displayed by the staff in the lobby area. I received one of the greatest humiliations by one of their employees in the reception hall. He addressed me with a very poor treatment, yelling at me because I had the cat, which is hanging around the hotel, in my arms. This employee should have come up to me and politely asked me what I had to say and not that in front of the rest of the guests and my own family he yelled at me saying to let go of the cat and more rude things. An unfortunate situación of shame and humillation. A cat that spends the day among the guests, climbing on the couches and allowing to be petted, behaved rudely. Also, I have to add that both, my husband and me, are veterinarians and we deal with pets every day. I had simply taken the cat in my arms, nothing else. If you don't want that cat be taken, then you came to me and tell me respectfully and not shouting like their employee did, without a simple "please" or "could you", but giving an order me, yelling at me in a very bad way with a lot of witnesses. Additionally, the attitude of the breakfast hostess towards guests was disappointing, only 45 minutes for breakfast. In conclusion, the incidents of unfriendliness and unprofessional behavior exhibited by the staff members at Hotel Estheria greatly impacted our overall impression of the establishment. I hope that management takes note of these issues and implements necessary improvements to ensure that all guests are treated with respect and courtesy during their stay. Breakfast was good but the service was appalling: no morning greeting, only “do you have a reservation?” No smile, no warm welcome, unfriendly at the minimum. You are limited in how much time you can take for breakfast and they literally police you.

Wow. This beautiful place has it all. We spent three nights here on our way to Africa. Our first time in The Netherlands and with only a short time we needed location to be good. It was perfect! You are walking distance to everything you need. Anne Frank, the Rijksmuseum all the shopping, canals, restaurants in every price range, everything in easy walking distance. The hotel itself is spectacular, I could have sat there all day and treated my eyes to incredible beauty. We were told by the staff that every year the owner takes on a project, changing up decor, updating this, improving that and it shows. This hotel exudes the charm of a well loved building. Breakfast was good, lots of choice. Our room, I believe a “classic” with a canal view was huge, well appointed, super comfy. The staff were cheerful, friendly and always available. Would say so if there was anything that needed improving…..there just wasn’t. If you are looking for a hotel for a few days layover ( or longer) in Amsterdam that puts you in the heart of the city you should check this one out, it won’t disappoint. Started our adventure in fine style!

Disappointing experience at Hotel Estheria in Amsterdam. During my recent stay at the hotel, I encountered some concerning issues that I feel compelled to share. One particular incident that stood out was the unfriendly behavior displayed by the staff in the lobby area. My companions and I were enjoying a game of table games in the library section, which was a bit chilly. In an attempt to make ourselves more comfortable, we decided to close the door. However, we were taken aback when the staff members intervened not once, but twice, to reopen the door without providing any explanation. This left us feeling confused and uncomfortable. Additionally, the attitude of the breakfast hostess towards guests was disappointing. We observed her rudely insisting that guests vacate their tables precisely after 45 minutes, which made for a rushed and unpleasant dining experience. This lack of hospitality and flexibility was truly disheartening and not in line with the welcoming atmosphere one expects from a hotel. In conclusion, the incidents of unfriendliness and unprofessional behavior exhibited by the staff members at Hotel Estheria greatly impacted our overall impression of the establishment. I hope that management takes note of these issues and implements necessary improvements to ensure that all guests are treated with respect and courtesy during their stay.
