5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights, all the staff we spoke to were friendly and helpful. Booking restaurant for us were no problem. They even got us breakfast on our last after time when we mentioned on checking out that we had not relized it was complementary so had not taken advantage of that service.

My fiancé and I stayed for just the one night. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Really great interiors, everything has been designed and thought about. We especially liked the breakfast in bed!

Lovely location - picturesque and quiet . We booked in for a 2 night stay between Christmas and NY On arrival we had a very warm welcome with a small ginger cleansing drink and a cool flannel to refresh ourselves . The service for our stay could not be faulted the staff were friendly and attentive . The public areas of the hotel were well decorated with pictures and mirrors and as it was Christmas they looked particularly stunning with Christmas trees , wreaths and twinkle lights
Our room was located on the ground floor next to the kitchen which we had to walk through and it often smelt of sewage so that was not so good !! THe room itself was lovely and luxurious and cannot fault it . If we had paid another 100 quid a night might have had a room with a view !!
The breakfast was good but not alot of options and you had to pay for anything hot which considering the price of a room was abit annoying
Overall the we had a lovely time but you are paying alot for the style of the place and well for nearly 500 pounds for 2 nights I wanted perfection or at least a hot breakfast .

Room Tip: You get what you pay for . The more expensive the better the room . We paid for a better room but h...

A stylish and chic hotel which is situated near some great restaurants and cafés. It is in a good district and a very pleasant walk by the canals to the Van Gogh and the Rijks Museums. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are some good touches and attention to details, such as, a small drink and warm towel on our arrival, a DVD and complimentary bottled water in the room.
Breakfast was nicely presented with good quality produce. However, the selection was limited and I was surprised that one has to pay extra for cooked breakfast, which is unexpected for a hotel of this calibre and considering the price paid per night. We stayed for three nights and feel the black decor is oppressive.
At the bar, we asked for cocktails on our first night but was told they did not do these by the girl who served us. However, a couple of nights later, we saw some guests drinking cocktails.

We booked this break at very short notice and had high hopes of this hotel. We were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and friendly and our room was excellent. Was it a perfect stay? Well of course not as nothing is perfect but we certainly struggled to find even a minor fault we could latch on to. Highly recommended!

This was the first time we stayed at the Canal House but it will not be our last. We stayed in room 20 that is only reached by climbing some very steep stairs (don´t go down if you have had a few drinks) and it was worth the climb. It was a large, open plan space with three large windows overlooking the canal. The bathroom is open to the sleeping area (toilet is separate), which works well here and leaves the entire space open to see the canal. We enjoyed the bar area after a long day of walking around Amsterdam. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. This is a good small hotel for a romantic visit; don´t pick this hotel if you have trouble with stairs but if you can stay here do it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the canal are excellent - ask about stair or elevator access
