Historical Traveller Reviews of Estherea Hotel
Best Location, Nice Hotelfrom Keith_Richards
The Hotel: I had booked a canal view room for the two of us (left the kids at home / Amsterdam is not really the place for young children on holiday)... I paid the little extra for the canal view... good move - good sized room, great view to wake up to, small bathroom, but clean. The hotel does not have a restaurant, but does have a small bar and a good breakfast room. Recently refurbished to deliver the 4-star welcome, but the room was 3-star... saying that the location was 5-star. Free Tea/Coffee/Hot-Chocolate 24/7... might not be much but makes a huge difference when staying in a hotel and keeping your costs within reason.
The Staff: Sorry to say I agree with some of the other remarks... when we arrived the guy on the desk was very cold, but not rude - not typical of Dutch people... but the girls on front of desk during the day very welcoming. The last two days saw a different guy on the desk and he was fine... I would retun to this hotel no problem, I would also recommend staying there if this is your first visit.
Location: Can't help banging this one home... have a look on a map before you arrive - you will be close to everything, have relaxing days feeling very safe day or night (this I can't say about Dam Square or the area behind it, you can feel the under-tow of exploitation and pick-pocketing).
Tip: Book popular venues, especially good local restaurants in advance (the hotel staff can do this for you) - we were fine as the end of April is still low season, but everything was pretty much booked to full capacity (not sure I would like it in the summer)OR don't worry about it and spend time in the many good bars which do just as good food. As for museums/boat trips... these were busy - not too busy, but I guess if your coming peak season then you're up against all the package tippers in their thousands.
Enough said - must get on - enjoy your trip... the Estherea is remarkable for what is a B&B!
Excellent Locationfrom katkearsley
Would go againfrom Lizh73
The staff were very friendly, particularly in view of the fact that I got a bug and was very, very ill on our first night - they were very solicitous and kept asking me if I was ok after that! Breakfast was excellent - plentiful and fresh.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, quiet and peaceful on the canalside, with lots of bars/restaurants nearby. Try 'Broodje Bert' on the corner one block up for fantastic toasties, sandwiches etc. The Indonesian restaurant one street over is very good also.
Just lovelyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel lobby and lift area was being rennovated during our visit. This disruption was minimal to guests (porters carried luggage up the stairs).
Would definately stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Amsterdam
Stay In And Spoil Yourself.. or Another! There is a supermarket just behind the hotel, grab a few of your favourite bits, you know, strawberries and chocolate sauce and spoil your other half in the hotel for a night :D
Fabulous restaurants All located on Spuistraat were three excellent restaurants: Haesje Claes (good Dutch food, try the stampot!) Kantjil & de Tijger (great Indonesian food, we had the rijsttafel for two, a 13 dish feast with a taste of many different items), and D'Vjff Vlieghen ("The Five Flies") What an experience here; 9 dining rooms all with different themes (we were in the Rembrandt Room) and delicious food. Excellent service and what an atmosphere! Cafe Luxembourg also on Spuistraat was a very nice cafe in a nice little square.
Visiting with kids Amsterdam is great for kids (ours aged 9, 7 and 4). All restaurants very welcoming, including the smartest. Easy walking distance between attractions. Many museums are free - except Nemo (11.5 euros per person). Didn't even see the red light district so don't be put off!
