“great hotel in Jordaan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Jordaan is the most beautiful part of Amsterdam to me... and this hotel is right perfect in the heart of it.

5 min walk to Grey area and a crazy amazing little pizza place (wood burning oven run by two girls) is on the way. Short walk to shops and restaurants didn't have to cab anywhere except to get to Van Gogh museum.

Room was stunning. Big huge windows that looked out onto the canal. Everything was new and the bed wasn't cheap and allowed me to sleep well.

Beautiful bathroom with the best tub I've ever been in.

Smoking area in the back that could have more privacy but was still really nice...nice collection of plants and you feel like you could be chilling in your own backyard.

Staff were very friendly...especially the night doorman.

Breakfast was ok...coffee was great and they gave you free juice and the other continental standards... but you had to pay if you wanted to be eating something...

Overall great atmosphere...really nice place to sleep and chill.

Neat spot. Great rooms. Great breakfast. Awesome location in the heart of the city. Easy access to public transport or walking distance to top sites, (Anne Franck, Museum district). Only complaint are the bells of the local church:) They ring every 15 minutes...24/7. So if light sleeper, look elsewhere. Same issues for any properties in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for Court side rooms.

We enjoyed 4 nights at Canal House Hotel. We were lucky to get a 'Great' category room with a canal view, which was very nice. The room was enough space for a couple, and there was a separate bathroom. The room contained a comfy bed, leather sofa, and desk. The decor included purple velvet pillows, velvet coverlet, and velvet drapes. The bathroom had a separate soaking tub and shower surrounded by purple tile, and two sinks. There was a minibar and in-room safe, hair dryer, flat screen TV and blue ray player. The hotel provided complimentary bottled water, a
Even though the tap water is fine to drink. The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was very good and in a lovely dining room/lounge overlooking a beautiful garden. Breakfast offerings included: coffee/tea, fresh breads/rolls/croissants, Danishes, mini muffins, cheeses, sliced turkey and ham, dried apricots and prunes, fresh squeezed juices, butter/jam/peanut butter, cereals and milk (including muesli), yogurt, etc. One day they even had mini donuts. It was enough food so we did not order upgraded additional hot entrees. The hotel is located in an excellent location in the Jordaan neighborhood. It's only a few blocks from the Anne Frank house and it's close to the nine streets, Dam square, red light district, royal palace, etc. the hotel is on one of the 3 main canals. There are lots of cafés, shops, and restaurants close by. We bought a hop on-hop off canal boat pass and took it to the museums (Rijk museum, and another day to the national maritime museum). Canal House was a nice base to return to.

Small hotel in a very nice area, near Anna Franks museum, and quite good restaurants. reasonable walking or bicycle ride distance from lots of attractions. It´s a bit expensive. Staff is very helpful, breakfast was quite good. Nice garden we didn´t have the time to enjoy . my room was small but reasonable , well equipped, very comfortable bed and pillows. If I had to suggest something please eliminate the dimmer light in the toilet room. Congratulations to the staff and the owners, would love to go again.

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.

The Canal House is a small hotel consisting of several connected houses with a large garden in the rear. It is located on a quiet canal, a block or two from the Ann Frank House. It is very walkable to many restaurants, shops and most attractions. Despite its facade, the rooms are ultra-modern, and somewhat quirky and are easily accessible. My only complaints are the rooms, no matter their size, lack sitting options and are somewhat dark due to low lighting and dark decor.
The price includes an ample breakfast and the hotel also serves drinks and light meals throughout the day. The biggest plus is the staff who were always friendly, helpful and accommodating. Due to the size of the hotel, they even knew us by name. We stayed four nights and used their recommendations for dinner each night - all were top notch, and they were eager to hear our feedback to pass along to other guests.
We would highly recommend the Canal House to all.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 7 which was an "exceptional" room that was very quiet and overlooked the...

My wife and I stayed at the Canal House in Amsterdam to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We found the hotel to be an excellent boutique hotel where a considerable amount of thought has been given to the design. The hotel is very close to the centre of the city, yet the hotel and its garden in particular are a very peaceful and quiet spot to chat and enjoy a cocktail.
We would certainly recommend utilising the hotel to organise your trip to Amsterdam particularly for recommending restaurants (de Belhamel was excellent and very romantic) and a dinner cruise (we would certainly support their recommendation of a dinner cruise with company Lovers for excellent food; surroundings and good value). At every instance we found the staff to be excellent; very friendly and incredibly helpful.
The hotel is not cheap but given prices in Amsterdam as a whole and the hotel's quality, we believe it was good value.
