“Lovely boutique hotel in lovely Amsterdam ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

This boutique hotel is absolutely amazing . It offers beautiful rooms with an interesting modern design, has a great kitchen, friendly staff members and its "hidden pearl" - the beautiful private garden, a great place for the hotel guests to relax and enjoy the weather. The hotel's location is great too - very central and convenient yet quiet.

Stayed April 2014

This is a real gem. The hotel is located in a beautiful, tranquil street. The decor of the hotel is stunning with wonderful architectural details. The entire staff is superb. They are warm, hospitable,and knowledgeable
I was thrilled with my choice and would give this hotel my highest recommendation.

Room Tip: I loved having a room overlooking the garden

I can't possibly explain how wonderful a hotel the Canal House is. There wasn't anything that wasn't perfection, from the greeting from Lisa we received upon arrival, our gorgeous room (we stayed in an Exceptional Room, #7 which overlooked the garden), the entire staff is welcoming and gracious, the breakfast is fantastic, and the bed was the most comfortable I've ever had in a hotel. The location is perfect, so picturesque right on the canal, and located to so many things. The hotel looks and makes you feel like you're staying in someone's home, it's so comfortable. Thank you Canal House for making my first trip to Amsterdam so perfect and wonderful. We will be back!

We enjoyed our stay here from the minute we arrived, greeted warmly by the very friendly and caring reception staff. Our accommodation was excellent. We felt the location was a major bonus as the hotel is very well located, within walking distance to most of the tourist attractions and tram stops.

Room Tip: We chose a room overlooking the garden

Of all the hotels I've stayed in this is easily the most comfortable bed I've slept in. Of course I'll remember the beautiful richly colored accommodations and great location. However the bed, oh the bed.

The lobby and breakfast area are photo worthy and in general the hotel has the dutch design one would expect.

Would love to visit again.

We arrived at the Canal House very early in the morning and were surprised to find that our room was ready. We had been upgraded to a lower level room off of the garden that had once been the kitchen. The room was a perfect mix of classy elegance with a nod to its historic origin. (Think copper pots and velvet, and somehow they made that combination make sense.) Since we would be leaving early the next day and we had not yet had breakfast, they allowed us to eat breakfast the morning we arrived instead of the day we were departing. The breakfast was a buffet with excellent cheese, croissants, yogurt, muesli, fresh juices, etc. For logistics, we took a cab from the train station for about ten euros and our cab to the airport (early on a Sunday morning so no traffic) was about 40 euros.

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!
