“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

A great place to take a stroll or a canal boat ride. Lots of little cafes to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and the view. Don't forget to try the amazing hot chocolate at almost any cafe - with whipped cream of course. If you are lucky it will come decorated with a stroopwaffle. Enjoy the beautiful architecture of the canal homes. Many with their building date displayed on the front.

“Simply beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Our hotel room had a perfect view on the canal. We enjoyed it so much as well as the chimes from the church nearby. Just paradise...

“Beautiful and Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The canal can be enjoyed either by taking the cruises that will get you a tour of the local areas on water and you will get to see the various buildings and spots that accentuate the beauty of the canal and if not a big fan of the whole cruise idea then you can opt for a small stroll around the banks of Emperor canal and seep in on the beauty of the place. Emperor canal is one of the three major canals that give Amsterdam its glory. I loved the whole neighborhood around this canal. It is breathtaking in the night and is pretty safe in the night as well.

“Love what I see...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Whenever I got a chance to visit Amsterdam, I always try to come to this spot...not only because its famous, but also because it feels sooo Holland...the river or rather the canals, the bikes, the houses, ...don't miss it!

“Lovely walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Just nice to wander here looking at all of the houses and people watch. Some good photo opportunities and little places to stop and have coffee or lunch
