Reviewed 12 November 2013

The Estherea was our first stop on our trip to Europe this year and it was a welcome sight after our overnight flight. They even checked us into our room early. So nice to be able to freshen up before starting a new day.
The hotel is luxurious, beautiful and charming with some of the best common areas I have experienced. There are multiple rooms to sit and relax in before or after a day of sightseeing. The fact that the hotel also offers lovely sweets and refreshments (hot chocolate, coffee, tea) all day is the icing on the cake.
The rooms were also very nice and decorated in an old world design that is perfect and what you want when visiting Europe. We reserved the deluxe room with a king size bed and were very happy with the room. More spacious than most hotel rooms in Europe with a very comfortable bed and great bathroom. The only negative on the bathroom was a very weak blow dryer in the room (every room has this same low wattage dryer). But not to worry. The incredible staff (more later) supplied me with a strong blow dryer upon request. Also available upon request is an ipad that you can keep in your room for the length of your stay.
The two most important features this hotel has to offer is location and its staff.
The location of the hotel is perfect. Very close to Dam Square, the Royal Palace and the Anne Frank House, this hotel is convenient to everything and if you enjoy walking, you can walk to everything. We did. Nothing was more than a half hour walk.
The staff here is wonderful. They are kind, gracious and professional and take care of any questions you may have from the room, to restaurants, to directions. They do anything they can for you to make your stay more enjoyable.
The greatest complement I can give this hotel is that if I am in Amsterdam in the future I will not look for any other place to stay but here!

just returned from a 3 day stay at the Estherea. I can honestly say that we had a fantastic stay. The hotel is kept to a very high standard. The staff are very welcoming and helpful with any requests or assistance we needed throughout our stay. the rooms are comfortable and clean. the coffee facilities are very good and available at any time in the hall next to the bar. there is a small comfortable bar. I would recommend staying at the Estherea to anyone who enjoys quality surroundings within easy reach of all of Amsterdam's sights. there are many bars and restaurants very close by in a nice area away from the bustle. We very much look forward to returning and will do so. well done Estherea and thank you for a wonderful welcoming break. see you soon.

The pictures online do not do this hotel a service, you have to see the sumptuous interiors to really appreciate the Hotel Estherea. The lobby and restaurant are places I don't usually hang around in hotels but I could happily sit and drink the complimentary coffee and nibble a pastry all day long and admire the beautiful furnishings and finishing touches. Our room was equally sumptuous and very dutch in blue and white. Lovely hotel staff made our stay even better and answered our questions without hesitation. Breakfast was expensive but good quality and plentiful. Great hotel in great location. A haven after pounding the streets of Amsterdam.

What a fabulous surprise my husband and I got as we walked through the doors into this sumptuous and richly decorated hotel. This was only surpassed by our amazing room, which was a Deluxe Double room, again most beautifully decorated. The bed was large and comfortable and the room size was more than adequate. Everything was sparkling clean and the staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous. The aquarium is a fascinating addition to lobby and Reception area. The coffee machine, and selection of teas and cakes is a nice touch and enabled us to make our own refreshments whenever we wanted. Hotel Estherea is ideally situated on the Singel Canal and is just a short walk to Dam Square, cafés, shops and restaurants as well as the Hop on Hop off bus stops. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and have been singing its praises since our return to Australia.

Just returned from a three night break staying at the Estherea. Totally lived up to my expectations. Superb breakfasts, friendly staff, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds, well designed and decorated rooms, fridge for storing the Leonidas chocolates, coffee and tea on tap 24 hours a day, good central location, very good restaurants just 2 minutes away. Ticked all the boxes and we will be back...
