The TA reviews are spot on. The three best things about this hotel are the service, the neighborhood and the breakfast. This boutique hotel is a bit less expensive than its competitors in the Jordan so even though it is pricy, it represents a solid value. Most of the tourist sites are within easy walking distance. Lots of terrific restaurants.... More

The Canal House is beautiful, located in a perfect spot, it is clean, the breakfast is very good and the people is great. What else needs to be added? (Still 50 characters to fill). Well, from Mexico, thanks to all the staff!

I really wish I had more than five stars to give because this hotel totally deserves it. I don't have a single complaint about it! Everything was perfect! The hotel itself is wonderful! Located right on one of the canals its beautiful, quiet, and quaint. The interior is a masterpiece. They have blended together both old and new in order... More

We just spent a few days at the Canal House and it was a great experience. The location is perfect for all sightseeings in Amsterdam. It is literally a 5 minutes walk to Anne Frank House if you want to get there early to wait in line. If you want to skip the line all together, purchase your tickets online... More

The decor of this hotel is dark and dramatic, but interesting and very well done. The staff were great, we appreciated their friendly helpful service. Our only visit to the dining room (which is also beautifully done) was to eat a hasty buffet continental breakfast which was adequate but nothing special. Our room on the first floor could be accessed... More

We have just spent 4 fantastic days in Amsterdam celebrating a significant birthday. Menno on reception was both friendly and informative when we checked in and took time to explain the layout of the hotel as we were on different floors and also the facilities in each room. All of the staff proved equally friendly and helpful and were always... More

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
