The hotel Estherea and the staff are wonderful. The prices are a bit steep but worth it if you want a luxurious stay in the heart of Amsterdam. The hotel is close to the Dam square, the Spui, restaurants, Kalverstraat shopping area, the Flowermarket and the peaceful Jordaan area. You can get to the busy and seedy areas easily but Estherea is removed from that scene located on the lovely Singel...the original canal circling the city dating from the 14th century. We took a canal view room and had no trouble with noise and blackout curtains ensure a good sleep. The view onto the canal was great too!
We did have difficulty parking the car we brought into town since the parking meters would not accept our various credit cards for processing. A nice hotel staff member named Steve tried several parking machines with us and in the end offered us to park in a hotel garage a street over at a rate even cheaper than the street parking. Amsterdam is not a great city for cars.
The hotel itself is beautiful but old of course so the elevator is small and the stairs a bit steep. But the decor is elegant and sophisticated, and the staff is gracious and very helpful. I've previously stayed at the Hotel Europe and the Ambassade in A'dam and the Estherea is in the same league. Highly recommended.
