The Canal House is wonderful!!! Perfect location for exploring the city and in my opinion in the nicest part of town. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms are small but not pokey. They are immaculate and nicely furnished with all the necessities. The minibar was well stocked and very reasonably priced for a city hotel. The bathroom was great... More

This boutique hotel is amazing - great decor, really different, and very quirky. We loved the narrow stairways and the historic building with modern furnishings. The toiletries they provided were of superb quality, as was everything really. We also had a fabulous view of the canal and the location was great, within walking distance to all main attractions in Amsterdam.... More

The location was great, the hotel is lovely, very quaint, but we were not told the air conditioning is not working for the remainder of the 2016 summer! There was no compensation. Beware as the temperatures are rising.

I have just returned from a visit to Canal House with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is beautifully designed, the room we had was simply beautiful. The staff were excellent and so knowledgable; nothing was too much trouble! The continental breakfast was delicious with freshly baked breads and pastries and fresh pressed juices. The only downside... More

Ideal location, on a beautiful canal in funky Jordaan, with endlessly helpful staff, beautifully designed, just a totally gorgeous stay. We had a canal facing room and whilst appreciating the view, it is noisy at night. The garden facing rear rooms are probably much quieter.

As a weekly visitor to Amsterdam, this is absolutely my favourite home from home location. Canal House is a wonderful mix of quirky charm and comfort - set in the middle of Amsterdam - and the staff are the kindest and most helpful ever.

This hotel is ideally located. It is walking distance from the Anne Frank house, local shopping and in the canal. Everyone at the hotel is so nice and speaks English well.

Can you find a cheaper place to stay in Amsterdam? Sure you can! But most of them will not be as comfortably or stylish as Canal House. This antique house on the Amsterdam canals (hence the name) has been lovingly renovated to house roughly twenty luxurious rooms, a small lounge and a spacious breakfast room.
