“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Unbelievable place and location! Beautiful decor throughout, huge bathroom with twin sinks, steam shower, bath and underfloor heating. It even has one of those beds that electronically raises your head or feet - great for reading,.
It's right on the canal in the nicest bit of Amsterdam - Jordaan. Stones through from some great restaurants and bars, and just far enough away from the rough parts (I'm too old for coffee shops these days....)

I can't recommend this place enough.

Absolutely stunning accommodation:) large, bright, excellent location! we really couldn't have gotten better! adjustable beds, champagne on arrival, fully equipped kitchen. within a few minutes walk from Anne Frank house. trams very close and canal boats can be boarded just across the bridge. would definitely recommend this accommodation to any couple looking a romantic break.

Absolutely gorgeous apartment . If you have ever stayed in Amsterdam in one of the Canal hotels such as The Toren then you will know that the rooms can be tiny. The Royal Canal Suite is huge by comparison and it's eclectic decor is lovely. Bright, romantic with an electrically adjustable bed, heated flooring in the bathroom, a bath and a shower along with complimentary snacks, prosecco and beer, you can't get better. A short walk from Anne Franks house and walking distance to the centre for the fit (if not the number 13 tram)and the little shops in the Jordaan district are great, it's a must. The only drawback are the stairs up to the first floor are a bit steep, but well worth the climb! Lovely owner Ria lives opposite so any worries you can get in touch immediately.

Michel and Ria were lovely hosts for this wonderful apartment, so much nicer than beng in an impersonal hotel room. Everything you could need is provided, coffee machine, bottle of Prosecco on arrival, biscuits and chocolates. Fabulous room hung with Michele's original art, luxurious bathroom with shower/steam cubicle and huge bath. Lots of space, and a little balcony to watch canal life over.

This suite is perfectly located in the heart of Jordaan district. With the canal view, quiet surroundings and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, you could hardly think of better location within walking distance to most of Amsterdam key attractions.
The suite itself is spacious and luxury equipped.
I highly recommend this place, it was one of the best I've stayed in.
