We stayed for two nights on our honeymoon in the Estherea, we opted for a canal view room which was well worth the extra.
They gave us an absolutely beautiful room with a four poster bed and a gift pack to congratulate us!
The free coffee/hot chocolate 24 hours is great and there are really comfy sofa's and seats with books to read and you feel really welcomed there.
The foyer is beautiful too.
Location is fantastic, really easy to potter around and are some brilliant european cafes/bars really near by.
Price was really reasonable too.
If you are going for a romantic weekend in Amsterdam, or wanting to do the city (rather than take in the dope cafes and seedier end of town - although admittedly we did go for a walk round that area!)
then this is definitely the place to say.
Highly recommend, it made our honeymoon!
(We also avoided breakfast there due to price and found a lovely place 4 doors down that was really nice and much cheaper).

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for five nights. She is a bit of a bathroom snob and is wary of European bathrooms. In this case, the bathroom met her standards: large tub, plenty of room, large sink bowl. We also appreciated the 24 hour coffee in the lobby. The staff was very attentive and their command of English was excellent. The bed was comforatble and spacious.
It is also in a good location, near a lot of things but not too busy. As was the case with another traveler, we were occasionally disturbed by a bit of nighttime noise outside our window, but it was nothing extraordinary. Amsterdam is, after all, a big city.

My husband teenage daughter and myself arrived at this beautiful hotel on a cold snowy day and were greeted by a friendly member of staff who advised us that there was free tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the lounge all day to warm ourselves up. we were then shown our room by a member of staff and shown where everything was and our to use the safe. The only draw back was that there were not many drawers in the room but this did not matter for only two nights. My daughter was on a folding bed and did not worry. The room was large and warm and the bathroom lovely. There were two sinks but I would advice anyone that is fussy to take their own shampoo. I had read a previous reviewer and packed some. As well as the hot drinks there were biscuits and sweets around the hotel and very much appreciated after the cold wet walks.

The hotel recommends several restaurants and we tried one two minutes walk at the back of the hotel it was Dutch and the food delicious we also tried an Italian that they recommended and the food was also very good.

The breakfast although expensive at 14 euros was delicious and set us up for the day and gave us the chance to try Dutch cheeses and some of their jams.

Our room was warm and we even managed to watch English television enjoyable on a very cold night

We read many reviews on this site before booking and the Estherea Hotel really does deserve its high rating. We booked a standard room, which we did find quite small but we weren't intending to spend much time there so wasn't an issue. What was a problem were the decorators that started work next door at 7am, we mentioned this to reception and they offered us an alternative room (bigger and better view) immediately, no fuss or hassle. The hotel staff were all friendly and the hotel has a nice relaxed atmosphere, which was always a pleasure to return to after a hard day touring Amsterdam. The location is perfect and very central to all museums and restaurants, would highly recommend the Estherea and will definitely return again ourselves.

I went to Amsterdam for the first time with my spouse last weekend. We stayed at the Estheria for 2 nights in a deluxe room (room #114).

At first we were very satisfied by the hotel because it is beautiful, our room was large, clean, well decorated, and had a nice view on the canal, and the staff made a good impression on us.

The first problem arose on the first night: our room was on the first floor and we were disturbed around 1a.m by a group of people talking loudly right under our windows, probably waiting for some friends on the doorstep of the hotel. Apparently, nothing special has been done for (external)noise insulation. However it only last 15 minutes and thus was a minor problem. Note that we could not hear any noise coming from other rooms.

The second problem was of much greater importance. We asked for a non-smoking room, as usual, because we are, though french, very sensitive (negatively) to cigarette smoke. The room was indeed non-smoking, and nobody had smoked in our room, but the room in front of ours (room #115) was a smoking room. And the guests in room #115, in their right, were unfortunately smoking a lot. Our room was invaded by smoke all night and we had to sleep with an open window in spite of the outside temperature (I would say around -5 °C). At the reception, after checking the corridor, they admitted that there was indeed a lot of smoke but could not do anything because room #115 was a smoking room and the hotel was full (so that they could not give us another room).

We thus spent a terrible second night in that hotel.

We however appreciated the breakfast (non smoking area). Note that it is not included in the room price (extra 14 EUR per person).

Note also that the hotel has no restaurant but that there are plenty right next to it.

I did not ask for any discount (not my style, at least with my wife standing next to me :C), but when I checked out, they did not ask me whether I had enjoyed my stay, they did not apologize, and did not offer any kind of compensation.

Apart from that, Amsterdam is a beautiful city and we had a wonderful time wandering in its streets and visiting a few of its museums.

Management response:Responded February 6, 2006

We would like to express our astonishment for the rating given by this guest. While reading it, we thought it to be a very good review, with good scores on all the things we offer.
we found only 2 things that were disturbing, of which one was - as the guests says - of minor importance.
So in fact the only reason why our hotel was given only 1 point, is the fact that their neighbour was smoking in his/her room. The guest did complain about this and according to our records, we did offer them an alternative room (#515). But as this was a room with no canal view, the guest chose to stay in his canal view room with the window open at -5 degrees.
