The location of the Ambassade Hotel, in the heart of the canal belt that was added to the Unesco World Heritage List in 2010, is close to perfect. What more could you ask for?
When you wake up early in the morning the tranquil beauty of the canals transports you back to the seventeenth century, but the thrill of the city is only a stone’s throw away. Truly the best of both worlds; a beautiful, safe and quiet location while all major attractions are at your fingertips.
Besides, the Ambassade Hotel lies in the “Nine Streets”, one of the city’s most delightful shopping areas. These picturesque streets straddle the seventeenth-century canals from the Singel to the Prinsengracht and offer you designer shops, art galleries, gift shops and plenty of restaurants.
At just a 5-minute walk away from the Ambassade Hotel you will find the famous “Jordaan” area. Originally a working-class neighbourhood, the Jordaan has become one of the most expensive, upscale locations in the Netherlands. It is home to many art galleries, particularly for modern art, and is also dotted with speciality shops and restaurants. No other town district in the Netherlands has been as sung about, described and romanced as the Amsterdam Jordaan.
