The hotel is very well situated and the public rooms and especially the garden are a delight. Our room was a decent size and the bath/shower in the room is less intrusive than you might think. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet.Throughout our stay the staff were attentive and friendly. The problem with the room was... More

Canal House is an upscale, boutique hotel in a most perfect location within close distance to the Anne Frank House , museums, cafes, etc. The staff was friendly, extremely helpful and always available. The rooms are dimly lit ( not great for putting on makeup), but otherwise, dramatically contemporary without sacrificing old world charm. The bed ( we had a... More

This boutique hotel is absolutely amazing . It offers beautiful rooms with an interesting modern design, has a great kitchen, friendly staff members and its "hidden pearl" - the beautiful private garden, a great place for the hotel guests to relax and enjoy the weather. The hotel's location is great too - very central and convenient yet quiet.

This is a real gem. The hotel is located in a beautiful, tranquil street. The decor of the hotel is stunning with wonderful architectural details. The entire staff is superb. They are warm, hospitable,and knowledgeable I was thrilled with my choice and would give this hotel my highest recommendation.

I can't possibly explain how wonderful a hotel the Canal House is. There wasn't anything that wasn't perfection, from the greeting from Lisa we received upon arrival, our gorgeous room (we stayed in an Exceptional Room, #7 which overlooked the garden), the entire staff is welcoming and gracious, the breakfast is fantastic, and the bed was the most comfortable I've...

We enjoyed our stay here from the minute we arrived, greeted warmly by the very friendly and caring reception staff. Our accommodation was excellent. We felt the location was a major bonus as the hotel is very well located, within walking distance to most of the tourist attractions and tram stops.

Of all the hotels I've stayed in this is easily the most comfortable bed I've slept in. Of course I'll remember the beautiful richly colored accommodations and great location. However the bed, oh the bed. The lobby and breakfast area are photo worthy and in general the hotel has the dutch design one would expect. Would love to visit again.

We arrived at the Canal House very early in the morning and were surprised to find that our room was ready. We had been upgraded to a lower level room off of the garden that had once been the kitchen. The room was a perfect mix of classy elegance with a nod to its historic origin. (Think copper pots and...

We got the nice bright room with the garden view on 1st floor. It's clean and beautifull, I loved the velvet on bed. The breakfast was excellent, and I really liked the Netherland cheeses (the green one is the best). After a long day walking, I really enjoyed to watch a movie from the bath with their nice relaxing product... More

Staff very welcoming, very helpful on all counts. Bedroom second to none. Breakfast excellent. Garden beautiful, tea house super. Service excellent. Great being right on the canal and so close to the centre of Amsterdam. We had a wonderful long weekend in a very special place. Rooms dark but that is the Dutch way. Only thing I would improve is...
