We recently spent one night at the Hotel Estherea. The location on the Singel canal is perfect for a stroll around the centre of the city. Easy walk to lots of restaurants and shopping. Our room was very clean and beautifully decorated with a huge bathroom and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Very courteous and efficient front desk staff. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We enjoyed our stay so much. Beautiful lobby and room. We tried the breakfast buffet one morning and it was superb. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Also, its in a wonderful location! Would highly recommend.

For our first 4 night visit to Amsterdam we wisely chose this fabulous hotel. The orange suite was truly amazing and highly recommended. All members of the staff were friendly and very helpful. Location is very convenient.

I have been to Amsterdam many times but this was my first time staying at Hotel Estherea.
We would definately stay again. Our room was lovely with a canal view. The tea, coffe and hot chocolate machine in the lobby (all free) was a nice touch.
The bathroom doors were a bit odd, thought completely private i felt on show.
My favourite feature of the hotel was the fact that it had 2 mopeds for hire which we hired the entire time we were there.
The location is excellent and i found the hotel decor to be very traditional and just what we wanted.

Room Tip: It's worth paying extra for a canal view.

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful hotel. Location is great, walking distance to most attractions, on a quiet area of the signel. Based on TA recommendations we booked a canal room, we got a beautiful room with large windows facing the signel canal and a lot of light. The room was very clean, spacious enough, with a wide comfortable bed , 2 couches and a desk. (We were in room 310, I must say that according to the floor plan it seems that some of the rooms might be smaller.) Bathroom was small but the bath products are all of l'occitane- what can be better?
In the lobby there are hot and cold drinks for free all day, it's fun to go out to the cold with a cup of hot chocolate in your hands…
They even have umbrella's you can borrow in the lobby- this was a life saver on the rainy days!
In general, we loved the hotel and definitely recommend it!

We stayed 5 nights at Hotel Estherea in May 2014. We chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, having never been to Amsterdam. We were very pleased with our choice. I liked the hotel's location along the SIngel canal and found it to be very conveniently located for the typical tourist attractions. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. I was particularly happy that they had our room available about 45 min. after we checked in at 9 AM -- so nice after a long day of travel!

The rooms were beautifully appointed and very comfortable. I have read complaints that the rooms were too small, but ours was one of the smaller rooms and the size was consistent with what one finds in any large city. My husband was disappointed that ours did not have a canal view, but our interior room was EXTREMELY quiet even during the day. I slept like a rock and would choose an interior room again without question. The bed was very comfortable. The only thing I felt the room lacked was a set of bathrobes.

We loved the salt water fish tank in the lobby. It was the most well-done we'd ever seen. We also loved the coffee and treats which were gratis in the lobby much of the day. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Consider asking for a quieter, interior room.
