“Great location to see where the locals live!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Our hotel was located on this canal. It's quiet (at least the western end) and beautiful. Each building is more impressive than the last. Stroll a few blocks (at least) to savor the old beauty of Amsterdam.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

While in Amsterdam, you must do the "hop on, hop off" canal tours! A lot of fun and a great way to enjoy the canals and the history along the way

“What a lovely City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

The canals of Amsterdam are a must to be on when visiting this beautiful city. Yes the canals look great from terra firma but to fully appreciate the beautiful waterways one must be on a boat and cruise the various canals.

“Grachts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

As previously mentioned all the Canals including the jordaan is worth doing on foot. Spend the whole day traipsing around the canals taking pictures of houses, bridges and anything that takes your fancy. Plenty of places to stop for lunch and a coffee. Very enjoyable IF THE WEATHER IS NICE.
