“stylish place in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

Wonderful modern hotel in a great location overlooking the canal, ideal for exploring Amsterdam. The hotel had been recently renovated when we stayed for a couple of days, and the designer decor is modern and luxurious. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Great place for a romantic treat.

A surprise from my husband ....so I was a bit apprehensive about his solo choice of hotel, but lo and behold was very pleasantly surprised. Canal House was a superb choice, our room looked onto the canal which was a treat. Food was excellent and we found the staff friendly and accommodating without getting too over the top. It has lots of personal touches like the photos and music which is very trendy, decoration is also top class. We cycled all over the city, and Amsterdam is so full of things to do and see that I´m sure we will be back at Canal House soon.

We just had diner there last night, and enjoyed it so much that it deserves a review.
At the moment one of the best restaurants in Amsterdam in its price range.

Service is very professional, and attentive.

There is a la carte but we took a 3 course menu for 36,- euro. For quality of the food, a gift.

After haven the biggest amuse I ever had (almost like a starter), we had two starters: one a scottish lobster, and second a sea bass. The main course was dutch lamb with white asparagus. It all was perfectly cooked.

I will come back soon and let my friends taste the quality of the food.
Since the place is quite new not a lot of people know about it yet. It won't take before the do!

We initially booked this hotel because of its ratings in TripAdvisor and as a Small Luxury Hotel of the World site. It was not a luxurious but was small and was a hotel. Upon arriving at 730 pm we were greeted at reception after carrying our own bags up the front stairs with an indifferent receptionist. After 10 minutes looking for our confirmed reservation we were required to 1) carry our bags up two flights of stairs, 2) pull our bags through the dinning room and KITCHEN!, and three when presented with our room told little about its operation or amenities.
The room was small and dark. There was construction in the back garden throughout our first day. Most concerning is that the hotel seems to cater to young guests who return late in the evening or early morning to continue their evening activities in what can only be described as dorm like sound proofing. Many guests while were there complained.
Breakfast consisted of a small buffet breakfast with eggs cooked upon request. In most cases little fruit and no cereal was provided as part of the buffet although this was part of the hotel's selling point.
In short I cannot recommend this hotel for its service, its accommodations, or its breakfast. We left after two nights for a true five star hotel. This should be rated as a two star hotel at best!

We were extremely pleased with the Canal House. The staff was friendly and attentive and our room was beautiful, comfortable and very well-appointed. The location was perfect - close to most attractions, great restaurants and most importantly - it was quiet! Compared to other hotels in Amsterdam I considered this to be a great deal as the room was newly renovated and breakfast was included in the rate. I will definitely stay here again!

Fabulously stylish hotel, only just re-opened after a major renovation. In a great location along one of the major canals, Keizersgracht, walking distance from the centre of the city, the main railway station (about 15 mins) and, most importantly, loads of great cafes, restaurants and lovely shops. Room was perfect, even though we went for the cheapest one called 'good'. Bed was soooo lovely, great bathroom. Everything spotless. When the garden is open in a few weeks it will be even better. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and we had none of those grudging 'okay's that you get in other hotels, including our late check out request. They really made us feel wanted and not a bit of a nuisance, as some other hotels do. A really lovely place, with fabulous staff. Defintely number 1 in Amsterdam.
