My husband and I stayed here for two nights. It is a very nice hotel with great service. Two negatives are lots of steep stairs which would be no problem but for the fact that public areas are Very dimly lit. (Decor thruout is purple and black). Other negative is our shower bathtub was inside the sleeping area. The bather... More

Fantastic location on the west side of the Damrak, the Canal House is close enough to the train station (10 mins walk) and the Damrak (5 mins walk) but far enough away from the busy tourist traps of the Red Light area and Flower Market. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and there is a lovely bar in which to... More

Our room, in the basement was huge and was... More

Well of course not as nothing is perfect but we certainly struggled to find even a minor fault we could latch on to. Highly... More
