We had a wonderful stay in the Amsterdam Canal Hotel. It took us a while to find as the directions that we were sent were a bit vague but we got there in the end! We had a room on the ground floor but still had a beautiful view of the canal. Our room was a little small but we... More

Excellent hotel, with a great location. Everything is in walking distance, and if you don't want to walk there is several tram stops right by. The room was really big and the bed super comfortable and huge! With coffee/tea and minibar included. Only downside to the room was the bathroom, and the frosted glass. And the water pressure in the... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel during our short vacation in Amsterdam and the hotel being an old hotel in a heritage part of the country makes it very convenient for other activities. First, as the name implies it is along the canal so the mood is always romantic or at least refreshing for those who love the... More

Our experience of the Amsterdam Canal Hotel began when my daughter and I got lost on our way to the hotel, and when we called, instead of giving us directions, and front desk clerk cheerfully came to meet us and carried our luggage to the hotel! :-) Since it was dark and we were tired, this was such a welcome...

My partner and I stayed at the Amsterdam Canal hotel over the Easter long weekend. The hotel is located in great location about a 10 minute stroll from Rembrandt Square. We stayed on the top floor, which was 3 flights of stairs but this was no problem. (They did mentioned that they're going to install a lift). Breakfast was a... More

My partner and i have just returned from a 5 night stay at this gorgeous hidden gem. We paid to stay in a superior room with a canal view and we were not disappointed. Decor of the room was really smart and trendy and bathroom was amazing with a jacuzzi bath! The view from our room was outstanding and looked... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room on 1st floor with lovely view of canal. The room was only small but nothing to complain about as we spent most of our time out. Bathroom was separate and not behind a frosted glass door as other reviews have stated. It was absolutely spotless and the bed was so comfy. Free mini bar... More

Wow, a really good hotel for a descent rate. It's not a huge international chain hotel, but it's a nice and personal hotel with very helpful staff, relatively large rooms with great beds, cool decorations and even a nespresso machine. Then there is also a great breakfast -what else do you need for a excellent city stay? I will stay... More
