Ten elegant canal-side houses in the centre of Amsterdam. Over the years, the Ambassade Hotel has expanded considerably. Starting with just one canal-side building in 1953, it now has 54 hotel rooms distributed among 10 of these buildings. Eight of these canal-side homes are on the “Herengracht” canal, while two others are located on the “Singel” canal.

Art & Literature
“Cobra stole my heart… and, as always with the big loves of your life, it came like a bolt out of the blue. Suddenly, my breath was taken away by the sight of all these amazing things: the colours, the freedom, the playfulness, the unconventional, the experiment, the intuitive. … I hardly knew where to look next. It wat overwhelming – all those hundreds of artworks in countless variations. Oil paintings, work on paper, sculptures of all types and sizes that dripped with passion… in forty years they had lost none of their power, on the contrary. I stood there rooted to the spot and I got goose pimples all over.” – Wouter Schopman, owner
