Our Library Bar houses an impressive collection of 5000 books all signed by authors who have stayed at the Ambassade Hotel. The Ambassade Hotel thanks Dutch publishing houses for this wonderful collection, as they very often accommodate their authors at the Ambassade Hotel when they visit the Netherlands. Many famous authors have stayed at the Ambassade Hotel including Umberto Eco, Jonathan Safran Foer, Isabelle Allende, Zadie Smith, Mario Vargas Llosa and famous chefs such as René Redzepi and Antonio Carluccio.
Alongside this unique collection of signed books by international authors, the Library Bar also houses the Ambassade Hotel’s guest books. The guest books are not solely written by authors who have stayed at the Ambassade Hotel, they also contain dedications from many other famous hotel guests including musicians, actors, painters, philosophers, architects and politicians.
