“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We got the nice bright room with the garden view on 1st floor.
It's clean and beautifull, I loved the velvet on bed.
The breakfast was excellent, and I really liked the Netherland cheeses (the green one is the best).
After a long day walking, I really enjoyed to watch a movie from the bath with their nice relaxing product + room service!
This place is perfectly located for us: Shopping, nice restaurants, Tuschinski cinema, Bouddhist center, Stedelijk Museum, Farmer's Market on Noordermarkt and other Amsterdam Markets, etc..
I will come back!

Staff very welcoming, very helpful on all counts. Bedroom second to none. Breakfast excellent. Garden beautiful, tea house super. Service excellent. Great being right on the canal and so close to the centre of Amsterdam. We had a wonderful long weekend in a very special place. Rooms dark but that is the Dutch way. Only thing I would improve is better lighting in the bathroom, not ideal for make up! Also no socket near a mirror so difficult to dry your hair in view of a mirror. We managed fine so obviously not vital!

Room Tip: We opted for a canal view and we're glad we did. Garden is beautiful too though.

My wife and I flew into Amsterdam on Sunday 5/4 and stayed at the Canal House for three nights. Our large room on the second floor (#12) overlooked the canal through large windows which opened wide. The room was very nice but the service was even better. The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. A special thanks to Owen, who was very patient and helpful in answering our questions and giving us tips. Stairs to our second floor room were narrow and curved, but a 68 year old such as myself had no trouble with them.

Behind the tall Dutch facade is a super-contemporary interior, albeit with some of the original architecture left intact. Fun and snappy, albeit with fashionably challenging lighting. Loved the big secluded garden. Loved being able to walk straight out onto the prettiest Amsterdam canals even more.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. It is a very nice hotel with great service. Two negatives are lots of steep stairs which would be no problem but for the fact that public areas are Very dimly lit. (Decor thruout is purple and black). Other negative is our shower bathtub was inside the sleeping area. The bather has no separation from the bed area so don't go unless you are either very well acquainted with your travel companion or one of you wants to go to the lobby while the other gets ready!

Fantastic location on the west side of the Damrak, the Canal House is close enough to the train station (10 mins walk) and the Damrak (5 mins walk) but far enough away from the busy tourist traps of the Red Light area and Flower Market.

Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and there is a lovely bar in which to enjoy a pre dinner drink. Breakfast is plentiful and the rooms were spacious and of good quality given the complexity of fitting so much into what is a traditional canal side building.
