“Highly recommendable hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Stayed here for a romantic getaway and it was absolutely perfect. The rooms are very luxurious and perfect for couples considering design. The location of the hotel is right in the heart of the city center, great for strolling around the city. Moreover all the staff members were so nice and the most hospitable persons, the manager on duty was exceptionally friendly. Overall a very pleasant experience, I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely come back!

This hotel is made up of two traditional Amsterdam canal houses which have been conjoined.
A great welcome. Hot towel and a virgin cocktail. Staff gave an incredibly warm welcome and explanation of re building, it's design, the surrounding areas and also armed us with a map.

Room was very stylish albeit a tiny bit dark. Bed was luxurious and having an open bath in the room a bit naughty but nice.

Our room faced a building and we had scaffolding so not brilliant.

The continental breakfast as amazing and served in what was formerly a restaurant with a lovely view of a private garden.

The owners own a spa range of products which are in the room and are fabulous and you can purchase them as well. They own some other hotels too so worth investigating.

Great boutique hotel. We were visiting Amsterdam for the first time and found the location ideal. The decor is trendy and chic. The staff could not be more helpful. Our contemporary rooms and bathrooms were nicely decorated. Our stay was very homely and reasonable value for a boutique hotel. We can't wait to go back !

We have been in that apartment this past weekend, and we thought this was kind of Bed and Breakfast, but actually it is private apartment. We liked it a lot.
Timea is the person in charge, and she's very kind and at disposal of clients.
The room was big, very warm and clean. No noise at all, and the location is perfect, only 12min by walking to the central station and 10 maximum to the red district and city center.
There are many cafes around and it is safe at night.
I do recommend to stay there.

We stayed for 2 nights in September from a recommendation and was perfect for a couples weekend break. The location was great, walking distance from boutiques, bars, museums and no tacky stag do's in sight - apart from the ones floating by the canal. The staff recommended hiring bikes and marked a few areas on the maps we could see. The breakfast was yummy with a huge variety of food and fresh juices. The only thing I could fault is the stairways were extremely tight and steep - I hit my head a few times.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Canal rooms. Timea was very helpful and friendly, especially as our luggage didn't arrive until the following day!! She also decorated the room for my husbands birthday. The hotel was old and comfortable. Only a 5 minute walk to central station, and close to everything. With tea and coffee making facilities, we thought it was good value for money.

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of October. The location is excellent - a short (under 10 min) walk from the train station, and yet not in a busy area, so it was nice and quiet. The lady who greeted us and showed us our room was friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The room was quite basic, but was clean and had everything we needed. The "bathroom" was very small but perfectly functional. The only change we would make was the beds - they were too "soft" - by which I mean they squashed down a lot where ever you lay on them which gave me a stiff back on the first day. We would happily stay here again. Make sure you have the right place - this review is for the "Canal House" on Brouwersgracht which is also sometimes listed (e.g. on booking.com) as "Canal Rooms". I believe there is another "Canal House" on Keizergracht. I think some of the previous reviewers have mixed the 2 places up.
