On our trip to Amsterdam with the kids we wanted to stay at an anti-chain hotel, one with character, that’s centrally located overlooking a canal, and that’s very friendly to children. We wanted a hotel that felt entirely Dutch. We found all these things and more at The Ambassade Hotel. I’ve stayed at some amazing hotels in my lifetime, and for me The Ambassade ranks among my top three favorites (the other two: The Balmoral in Scotland, and Waterford Castle in Ireland). The tag line at The Ambassade: ”You dream, you wake up…the dream continues.”
Yep, that about sums it up!
This gem of a hotel consists of several 17th c. houses merged together, so you really feel like even though you’re in a hotel, you are still experiencing the real Amsterdam. It’s overlooking a canal. The furnishings were amazing (see above!). This is the view out of our windows:
Thank you, Ambassade Hotel, for an amazing three days. In the words of Arnold Shwarzenegger, “I’ll be back!”
