Walking from Amsterdam Centraal station was easy and took 10-15 minutes at a relaxed pace. The hotel is, as it name suggests, situated right alongside the canal and during our two night stay (over a weekend in a canal facing room) we found it to be quiet and peaceful. It's location is very convenient for sightseeing - out of the...

We stayed 3 nights arriving late on a Friday. The staff were very helpful from start to finish. The breakfast is excellent and we really enjoyed it. The bar is nice but we only drank there once because it was expensive for 2 cocktails, but that was the only thing we didn't like. We were on the top floor facing...

I choose this hotel because I like the quirkiness of staying a hotel where they have combined several traditional Dutch houses into a hotel . As a consequence , the rooms were smallish but fully updated with a very nice modern bathroom . The staff was very accommodating , but the best part was that there was a lovely garden...

Location good, staff most helpful and friendly, good breakfast, room was very nice and clean. Had everything one needs, but AC did not work and it was very hot. We had a desert cooler instead. It made quite a noise and was not effective. We still loved the hotel!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we found our room very quiet and comfortable. We rented the hotel's bikes for 24 hours which was great fun and helped us get to see all of the city and feel like locals. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Amsterdam.

Stayed in a Garden View room. Employees were very nice and helpful in getting dinner reservations. The room was in all black except for sheets and sink and toilet. It was very difficult to find how to adjust the lights throughout the room. I would rate the room only as OK. I personally would have booked a more well known...

One of the reasons we planned a trip to Amsterdam was that we remembered how much we had enjoyed staying at Canal House a few years ago. This time, we stayed six nights on a trip that included our two adult daughters. The only thing that exceeds this hotel's artful, charming ambiance, generous and delicious breakfast, good room amenities, peaceful,...

Really enjoyed the Canal House. The location is incredible right in Jordaan, the rooms are interesting and unique, and the staff is wonderful. Totally recommend this place as a little bit different and unique. If you're not a couple, check with staff on bathroom arrangements -- a bit unconventional... And, LOVE it!
