We had a bad experience at the Hotel Arena in Amsterdam and last minute found Canal House. We were so happy to move to the Canal House which was so much cleaner and nicer than Hotel Arena. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean and the beds were a little soft, but overall we had a good stay. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. The room included breakfast which was very good. Excellent location of the hotel, walkable to many restaurants and shops.
