At a Glance

The family-run Estheréa, a small four-star on the Singel canal, is a great alternative for price-conscious travelers who still want to wake up with that iconic Amsterdam canal view.

Indagare Loves

  • Reasonably priced rooms
  • Friendly and efficient service
  • Family rooms for guests traveling with children


The Estheréa's 93 rooms are modest in size but immaculate and feature pretty touches like bright wallpaper and reproduction antique furnishings. Bathrooms are snug (some showers remind of those on boats). Some rooms have more than one bed, ideal for families or friends traveling together. Service is personal as well as efficient (not always a given at family-run places), and afternoon tea and homemade cookies are set up daily in the somewhat dim lobby, which has plush couches and chaises. If you want the same view that you would get at the Dylan or Hotel Pulitzer for a fraction of the price, book a top-floor canal room. The hotel has few amenities but does have a small gym (although exploring the city on foot or bike is the best way to get exercise in Amsterdam).

Who Should Stay

Families or travelers who are happy to trade five-star amenities for a budget-friendly canal-side hotel.
