Great location for the hotel near the centre. You can hire bikes from the hotel as well which is very useful. However the wifi is good but doesn't reach the top floor. Breakfast is simple but decent as are the rooms which can get a bit hot as they only have one fan.

Where to start.. Location wise it was perfect! Just off the first Amsterdam Canal. And far enough away from all the youts getting high for the first time. Receptionist was a weed connoisseur and knew the best places to smoke round town. Even told us where Oceans 11 was filmed. Stairs.. Bit too steep for our liking. But that's probably... More

We went to Amsterdam to visit the new Rijks (we had not been there since they had renovated the museum. We picked this hotel because of its location -- on a canal and a very short walk to the trolly lines from Central Station and to the Museums. The staff was excellent in advising us of restaurants close by, etc.... More

When we got to the hotel we had to wait over an hour as the receptionist (basil faulty) was dealing with customers. Little did we know the queue consisted of people getting their money back or changing rooms. After all the palava we went to our room. Oh boy !! We had to walk up four very long flights of... More

This is a quaint little hotel right next to the flower market. It is within walking distance to most major sites and museums. The hotel itself is old, but very well kept. Our room was large by European standards with a bigger than normal bathroom. Breakfast was very good - fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal, assorted pastries, cheese and... More

It's worth because of the price and location, just to sleep and have breakfast. Comfortable bed and temperature but bathroom was not nice, ugly and dirty carpet. Narrow corridors. Breakfast was enough, there's a guy refilling bacon, eggs and toasts, there're also juices.

Great location, 10 minutes walking from every Amsterdam sights. Friendly staff, good value for money. Excelent breakfast, good fruits, good bacon, good bread and bakery. There's a car parking service really cheap, when compared with Amsterdam car parking: the staff drive the car outside the city. Very confortable, because I was touring with rent a car from Belgium, had a... More

I paid 400€ for 3 nights in a double room in hotel agora. The location unarguably is superb, the rest of the hotel deserves not more than the two stars it holds. Rooms are really torn down and very basic. Breakfast too, staff is there to work the computer, but not to say hello or goodbye. Would prbly either get... More

We had booked the hotel online for 2 nights with a room that overlooked the canal..but due to online mishaps the room was double booked for a night. The gentleman who attended to us was very kind giving us another room which included a discount for the inconvenience. This hotel is situated in a great location but is not posh!... 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.
