We were frequent visitors to The Canal House many years ago when the hotel was under the original ownership. We decided to return this year to celebrate a special anniversary. It was a real joy. The new owners have refurbished the hotel with exquisite taste while retaining all the original charm. The service was excellent, the staff very helpful. Despite... More

I can't say enough nice things about this hotel. It is the "real" Amsterdam: friendly Dutch family-owned, on the prettiest canal in the city, and the real canal-house experience. We had a room on the top floor which was very warm (there is no air conditioning) but we opened the windows and were just find. The bathroom was right down... More

Apartment information is inaccurate as it mentions that only 1 flight of stairs when in actual, it's 2 flights. it is crucial to describe with precision on stairs as some of your occupants may well have health issues that causes them to either not be able to climb or carry luggage for so many stairs. The staircases in the Canal... More

My wife and I (mid 30's) stayed at the Prinsengracht Canal house at the beginning of August 2007, and were overall quite happy. The area is very quiet and seemingly safe residential area out of any main tourist zone, so you have the feeling of being with local Amsterdamers. Fabulous cafes, Michelin recommended restaurants, bars and a couple of superb... More

We stayed in the Prinsengracht canal house. The house in general isn't at all as pretty as it looks on the website. Our second set of keys didn't work on the outside door, the dishwasher didn't work and a door next to the bed on the top floor bedroom wouldn't close properly and had a sheer drop of about two...

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
