Hotel information
Hotel Estheréa was founded during the second world war by Maria Flieger-Gruyters, mother of three daughters. She lost her husband Joseph in the war and moved to Amsterdam to earn a living. She rented a house along the canal in which she started a small inn with 12 rooms. During the years after the war she also bought neighbouring houses and expanded her inn.

Today, the Estheréa has 71 rooms spread over 6 houses (4 houses along the canal and 2 houses in the Spuistraat, all connected with each other). Unfortunately, Maria Flieger-Gruyters passed away in 1992 and one of her three daughters, Elly Esselaar-Flieger took over together with her husband Rob and her three children Jan-Willem, Caroline and Esther. Today the third generation is setting forth what Maria started more than 60 years ago.

The historical buildings are dating back to the 17th century. The comfortable rooms are renovated approximately every 5 years. In addition to the listed facilities, they are all equipped with a private bathroom and wireless internet. Our elevator reaches all rooms.

In our elegant lounge with canal view we serve complimentary coffee and tea.
We sell foreign newspapers and there is a small library with books in different languages that you can borrow during your stay. We have colouring books and pencils for our small guests as well as baby beds and a high chair in the breakfast room (all free of charge).

Travel information
How to reach us:

From the airport
At Schiphol airport, you can either take the Connexxion shuttle bus, taxi or train. The Shuttle bus leaves regularly from Schiphol and passes all the major hotels in Amsterdam. Costs: approx. Euro 12,00 per person. You can find taxi's just outside the arrival hall and this is the fastest way to reach the hotel. Costs: between Euro 35,00 and 40,00.
There is a train station right under the airport. Trains to Amsterdam Central Station depart every 20 minutes. Costs: approx. Euro 4,00 per person. Walking distance from Central Station to Hotel Estherea is 1500 m. You can take a taxi at Central Station. Costs: approx. Euro 10,00.
You can also take tram number 1,2 or 5 and you get off at stop 'Spui'. From Spui it is a 3 minute walk to the hotel.

By Car
If you bring your own car to Amsterdam, and reach the A10 (the highway that surrounds Amsterdam), take exit no. S 105 and follow the signs 'centrum'. When you reach the Singel canal, just before the Royal palace, turn right. Cross the second bridge to reach the other side of the canal and you will find us at house no. 303-309. You can park your car in front of the hotel in order to unload your luggage. We will then give you directions to either a guarded parking nearby or public parking spots on the street. Please note that you need to buy a parking ticket in all the public parking areas. You will find parking meters in the streets. If you do not pay the parking, police will put a wheel clamp on your car and this is an expensive and unpleasant experience.

At the reception we also sell parking tickets for the whole day.

Parking in Amsterdam is quite expensive. We therefore recommend that you use the Car Hotel service.They will collect and safely garage your car for a pick up fee plus a fiexx (reasonable) amount per day storage,then return it to you on your departure. On arrival our receptionist can call this service for you,however as it normally takes approximately 30 minutes to arrive we recommend that you park close to the Rembrandtplein and pay for one hours parking so your car isn't clamped while you wait for the service.It is not possible to book this service in
