Welcome to Hotel Estheréa in Amsterdam

Imagine yourself in a truly authentic Amsterdam ambiance in this beautiful seventeenth-century building along Amsterdam’s oldest canal: the Singel. Dream away with the richly coloured interior, the crystal chandeliers, the luxurious fabrics and the expressive prints. None of the 91 rooms and two suites in our hotel are the same, each and every one of them has been lovingly designed and decorated. Hotel Estheréa will allow you to relax and it’s also the perfect starting point for discovering and exploring the city, as it’s located right in the very heart of Amsterdam. In short, the perfect stay for either a short or a long getaway in Amsterdam. Can we look forward to seeing you soon?


This boutique hotel has been run by a family for more than 80 years. Quite a few things have changed over the years. The premises started out as a guest house with 12 rooms and has now been developed into a luxury gem with 91 rooms and two suites. The building is now included on UNESCO’s world heritage list and has undergone a significant transformation. However, the one thing which has definitely remained over the course of time is a true family feeling, personal attention, service, authenticity and an eye for detail. And you don’t just see that when you enter our hotel, you will feel it too.
