We stayed for 3 nights prior to leaving on a river cruise. The accommodations were perfect for us (2 couples). However, the stairs are steep, but they are part of the charm of staying in an authentic canal house. Loes was a gracious host and prepared a lovely traditional dutch breakfast for us each morning. The location was great and... More

We booked the Canal Room (view of the canal) and this was confirmed well in advance of our intended visit. After lugging up our 20kg suitcases up the very narrow two flights of stairs we were shown our rooms - with more narrow stairs from the living room up to the bedroom AND no view of the canal. When we... More

Stayed for 2 nites in this B&B. Hosts Tony and Loes are friendly and welcoming. Nice and simple country breakfasts were personally prepared by Loes. Initially, I was apprehensive about booking the back house. The photos of the front house with canal views looks nicer. However, it turned out that the back house is also nice and charming. Double bed... More

The owners of this tastefully updated and decorated B&B, Ton and Loes, are gracious hosts who make your stay very comfortable and accommodating The building is a late 17th Century Golden Age mansion on a quiet canal, 10 minute walk to the Centraal rail terminal, and easy 5 minute walk to the main tram lines. Excellent restaurants and pubs nearby.... More

May is a great time to see Amsterdam and this is an excellent place to feel like a local. It was one of the homes built in the 1500s and renovated over the centuries. The owner Tony is very hospitable and speaks English, like most people in Amsterdam. The only warning is that you must be able to go up... More

As a massive fan of 'independent' hotels I spent some time browsing the Internet for the perfect place to stay during my trip to Amsterdam. And I'm very glad I did. I'm almost reluctant to write this review in case this fabulous little gem becomes over-popular and loses some of its charm and character. We stayed in the canal room... More

We had everything on our side when we went to Amsterdam last week - the weather was on its best behaviour and the B&B was perfect. We loved looking out at the canal from our window and watching it change as the day wore on. It was really special to see it at dusk and in the early morning as... More

The B&B is a hidden gem - located perfectly and the place and service is more than you can expect. We would definitely stay again. It is close to much - the central station is only a few minutes away and there are loads of small restaurants and bars around.

What good can be said that hasn't already been said about this property? We arrived by train to Amsterdam Central, and walked to Herengracht 21. It was a pleasant walk of 10-15 minutes with lots of sights on the way. The location is right on the canal, in a quiet and pictoresque area. We stayed in the Canal Room, which... More

The good reviews and pictures are accurate! We stayed here with another couple post River Cruise...cab was 20E from the ship. Very walkable to most locations. The neighborhood is great for wandering...try to see the "green market" on Saturday morning. Good selection of restaurants within easy walking distances and Loews will have some great suggestions for you. She was so... More

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
