Hotel is in a good location for exploring Amsterdam - on foot or via trams. Friendly, helpful staff. The room (standard) was clean and comfortable but rather small, double bed positioned right next to the window. However OK for a short stay. The bed itself was extremely comfortable. The front rooms are on a busy road and there is some... More

The Hotel is fine, nice room if poor ventilation. Problem came when I checkout, the bill showed 2 people staying and charged for 2 breakfast, I queried this and they apologised saying they would process a refund to me credit card, but they didn't, so called and asked again, again they said they would. After several more calls, two with... More

Clean and tidy, great staff, good breakfast. Great location for everything. No lifts as histroic building so steep narrow stairs but not a problem for us. Perfect location for the museums and to getinto the City centre.

I stayed here for only one night, but had a really good night's rest as the room was clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, and the rain shower was good. Minibar was free, wifi connection was strong, toiletries and bedroom slippers were all provided. The decor in the room was nice and I had a canal view. Hotel staff... More

I had been hoping for a positive experience. The hotel has no lobby and no restroom - only in the rooms. No elevator, steep staircases you need to traipse up and down as there are no telephones in the rooms. I got the smallest possible room for 150 E a night. When I thought I had lost my key (a...

I've been meaning to write this review since I stayed at the Amsterdam Canal Hotel in Jan: time has slipt away from me but I have very fond memories of this stay. This is a beautiful hotel: other reviews mention the steep, spiral staircase as a negative and I understand that it wouldn't suit everyone. But I loved being inside... More

We had an excellent stay in this hotel. Clean room, comfy bed. The breakfast was amazing, i wish all the 3 star hotels have such a great choice for breakfast (fresh fruits, good tea and coffee, warm and soft bread, croissant). Close to the city center. I can only recommend to everyone!

We stayed 4 nights in august 2013. The hotel is quite expensive in comparison with the quality of the rooms, but has a nice breakfast place in front of a canal and it's not so far from bus stop. The design of the hotel is really nice and modern. Young guys at the reception are very kind and polite, but... More

The hotel is well positioned and all major attractions are within a 20 minute walk. Hotel is on a small canal and breakfast can be had sitting on the terrace overlooking the water. I believe the rooms to the back of the hotel overlook the canal, we were at the front overlooking the road. Worth enquiring about this when booking... More

Booked this hotel in a pinch so it's my own fault for poor planning. For my first time in Amsterdam, think I landed in a nice enough hotel that was pretty close to everything (10 min walk to Reikstag, 15 minutes to Jordaan and Anne Frank House). However, with no elevators and a room on the 4th floor -- with... More
