We had a bad experience at the Hotel Arena in Amsterdam and last minute found Canal House. We were so happy to move to the Canal House which was so much cleaner and nicer than Hotel Arena. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean and the beds were a little soft, but overall we had a good stay. The staff... More

The Canal House is a small hotel consisting of several connected houses with a large garden in the rear. It is located on a quiet canal, a block or two from the Ann Frank House. It is very walkable to many restaurants, shops and most attractions. Despite its facade, the rooms are ultra-modern, and somewhat quirky and are easily accessible.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Canal House in Amsterdam to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We found the hotel to be an excellent boutique hotel where a considerable amount of thought has been given to the design. The hotel is very close to the centre of the city, yet the hotel and its garden in particular are a very... More

We arrived at the hotel in bright sunshine and had to rapidly adjust our eyes to the black walls and ceilings in the bar/ reception which really were impressive Free cocktails ( sadly non alcoholic) on arrival was a nice touch. The walk from central station took 15 mins but helped us familiarise ourselves with the surroundings. The hotel was... More

My boyfriend has been to Amsterdam before, and stayed at a larger hotel establishment, whereas I wanted to stay in a more boutique style hotel. Canal House was fantastic! Thoughtfully and beautifully designed, we loved every single detail. We stayed in the Great Room #5 facing the canal, and it was gorgeous. There's some street noise that comes through if... More

This hotel is in a very picturesque part of Amsterdam - the Keizergracht - and perfectly situated for seeing the main sites of the city. We enjoyed the quirkiness of the plush and rather decadent interiors. The decor is a kind of goth/glam (think black and gold) with many of the original house's features preserved. The breakfast room was particularly... More

Canal House was perfectly located for us, near all transportation and services, as well as Anne Frank House and Westertoren. The garden was lovely after a hard day's museum-going. Peaceful outdoor space is such a refresher in the summer and we certainly enjoyed our Aperol Spritzes! Rooms were cramped, but well appointed. The layout of the hotel is a puzzle:... More

Mary and I had a very nice three nights at the Canal House. It's well located within a couple of blocks of the light rail and a short walk from the main square or the RDL. All of the people we dealt with were helpful and polite. The rooms were nicely appointed, great duvet covers on the comfortable bed. We... More

I stayed here with my mother in May 2012, and we had the most wonderful experience. A beautifully-designed space, artful in all ways. Perfectly situated for walking, dining, and shopping. With excellent staff-- really. Just wonderful.
