Public areas


In 2015 all the public areas of the Ambassade Hotel were renovated by the renowned Spanish architects “Cruz y Ortiz”. The public areas provide a good impression of the style of the Ambassade Hotel: a splendid blend of the historic and the contemporary combined with modern art from the Cobra-movement and works of the Amsterdam Impressionism.

The Lobby

As you enter the Ambassade Hotel you will find yourself in the hotel lobby, with it’s stylish modern reception area combined with an eighteenth-century ball leg table and beautiful furniture known as “Retour d’Égypte” from the same period. The lobby also has several showcases with sculptures and ceramics from Cobra artists and works by sculptress Ans Hey. An extensive range of international newspapers and magazines is available as well.

The Library Bar

The Library Bar contains a unique collection of more than 4000 signed books by foreign and Dutch authors who have all stayed at the Ambassade Hotel. Here you can also view copies of our famous guest books, containing hand-written comments from renowned artists, authors and celebrities from all over the world.

Internet Office

Past the reception you will find an internet office with facilities that are available free of charge to our hotel guests. This space enables guests to deal with business matters, quickly check their email, print out documents or simply surf the internet using our high-speed internet connections.

The Cobra Lounge

The Library Bar is adjoined by the Cobra Lounge. It is ideal for a boardroom setting for a group of 6 to 12 guests. The Cobra Lounge is perfect for an undisturbed meeting, for interviews, or presentations. Private dining is also possible in the Cobra Lounge.

This room is named after the Cobra movement (1948-1951). Alongside the Cobra artworks and part of our book collection, you will also find a special display case that holds the 18 Ambassade Hotel guestbooks. Over the years these guestbooks are filled with unique dedications from the many famous authors, musicians, artists, architects and philosophers who stayed in the hotel.

The Small Lounge

The small lounge also overlooks the Herengracht and is situated next to the lift. This room particularly lends itself to getting on with some work, for a quiet read or for a get-together. The lounge has a stunning collection of works on paper from the real Cobra period 1948-1951.
