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!
