History

Hotel Estherea owes its existence to Maria Flieger-Gruyters. After losing her husband early in the Second World War, she moved with her three daughters from Helmond to Amsterdam in 1942, where she rented an old canal side house. She converted the house into a guesthouse named after her three daughters Esther, Elly and Ria.
Huize Estherea, as the establishment was called, survived the war and by the 1950's Maria had become a talented hotelier. Several neighbouring houses were bought as the guesthouse expanded. As well as tourists and business travellers, they included many artists and musicians.

Together with her second husband, Maria converted the 4 canal side houses into a single hotel. The name was changed to hotel Estherea, ready for the growth in tourism that awaited the city of Amsterdam.
Maria passed away in 1991 and her daughter Elly Flieger took over the family business. The third generation is currently running the hotel. The 12 rooms with which the establishment began are now unrecognisable, but personal care and service are just as important as they were 70 years ago.
