          Great locale...


          Locale and service was great. Didn't have any problem with the front-desk staff and the location was perfect. Close enough to all the tourist spots but easy to sneak out to the Jordaan and other areas that are less touristy. Right behind the hotel is a street filled with various restaurants and cafes which are great. There are also several coffee shops in the area if that is your bag. I would rate the hotel as above average. The room was a good size (ask for a canal view room) with a decent size bathroom (tub you can actually bathe in). I would definitely return to this hotel.

          Unfriendly Staff


          Stayed here with my boyfriend. Man on reception was very unfriendly! Treated us with borderline rudeness, maybe it was because we were both wearing jeans. A smile and a welcome would not have gone astray! Room was small but clean. Good central location, but wouldn't stay again.

          Very Good Hotel


          I thought that the hotel was very good. I stayed with my sister in a double room -- two twin beds -- and it provided a nice amount of space and a very modern, large bathroom. While the room was modern, you still knew you were staying in one of the old canal houses -- which was very nice. I stayed on the street side, not the canal side. My one complaint is that it was very noisy with the windows open because of street level noise. The canal side is probably quieter.

          Charming, Convenient, Lovely Staff.


          Had two (2) rooms for five (5) people in June, 2004. (Four nights total). I was unimpressed by the dark, drab first room that my three (3) young-adult children were assigned, and within an hour, they were moved to a wonderful upstairs room with ample accommodations (including a pull-down wall bed). Our main room was decorated in crisp, clean tones of white, and featured lots of windows overlooking the gorgeous Singel Canal. (We kept the windows open at night--what a pleasant experience!) Bathrooms were small but updated and well stocked. The lobby offers free coffee and tea, 24/7. It also has an internet-connected computer at your disposal. Great central location next to Dam Square and the flower market.

          Highly recommended


          Stayed at the Estherea March 6th for one night. It was hard to find a hotel near Dam Square one week in advance, but this one filled the bill. It is very nice for the price ( pd 150Eu/nt). It is only about two-three blocks away from Dam Square on the Singel canal. The reception was very nice, we were shown to our lovely first floor room which overlooked the canal. The room was immaculate and furnished with very nice draperies, a canopy bed, antique desk and beautiful prints. I think we got the room in the brochure. The bed was super comfy, with the padded sheets I enjoy and extra pillows. There was temperature control on the heater, but no tea/coffee in the room, but it is free in the lobby all day. This is a classy and comfortable small family owned hotel. About four blocks to the right of the entrance is puccini bomboni, for the best chocolates in the world. And do yourself a favor and go to De Waal bakery on Damrak, just off Dam square. The appelflaps are the best. This is the best hotel I have stayed in in the Dam (after seven trips), largest room, largest bathroom, best view quiet street/canal. Highly recommended. Sure, you can pay more, but why?

          A bit pricey


          Nice central location for touring the city. Our room was large with a wonderful bathroom. Staff was friendly but not extraordinarly so. We were touring with 2 small children and they seemed to be a little put off by this. Breakfast was good but I would almost recommend eating at one of the pancake restaurants the city is so known for.

          Lovely hotel


          The rooms were indeed a little on the small side but still lovely. We had a nice view overlooking the canals. The staff were really friendly and the hotel is in a great location. A twenty minute walk/short taxi ride from the train station and right in the heart of Amsterdam so we were able to walk everywhere. We paid 200 euros for two nights and felt that it was well worth it. Would definitely recommend it...

          Dissapointed with hotel


          I booked a standard double room through the net for my girlfriend & I.

          I have to say the room was not great, it was very small & the walls were very thin so we were party to conversations from both adjoining rooms. The staff were friendly & this hotel is in an ideal location for Dam Square/flower market only a few minutes walk. If your going to stay here make sure you go for a bigger room although its quite pricy as is the breakfast.

          Perfect hotel, perfect location


          My husband, another couple and I stayed at the Estherea for a long weekend in November. We actually thought we had reservations at another hotel, but our travel agent "forgot" to make them, so we ended up here.

          It turned out to be the perfect, small, personalized hotel with an excellent location - 2.5 blocks from Dam Square. While on a canal cruise, we saw the hotel we were first going to stay at- boy, were we thankful for the mix up. The price was right. However, we thought the breakfast buffet, while good, was pricey. We will return.

          Friendly, and local to Dam Square


          My husband and I stayed in Hotel Estherea, for a long weekend. It was a beautiful hotel, very clean, staff were friendly without being intrusive. Very local to all sight seeing and Dam Square. On the Singel Canal a very pretty outlook.

          Today we walked and walked and walked. We started from the hotel meandering up the streets and over the canals learning more about Amsterdam which is built on wooden poles that turn as hard as cement when under water. We went to the Ann Frank House which was very moving to see where Ann Frank and her family hid for 2 years before being captured. …

Tired from waking up early to say goodbye to Sue and Terry, in addition to our luggage issues we went to bed early.

          Today we had booked a city tour that would finish with a skip the line pass to Anne Franks House. We met the tour guide at 10 and she was lovely. We were also lucky enough to be the only people on this tour so it was Private :) She took us for a walk to many of the different sights of Amsterdam telling us the history behind them. The most shocking thing we learnt is that Amsterdam was not built on already existing land but infact land that was reclaimed from the sea and built upon. ...
