We had a room overlooking the canal which was very nice. Staff very friendly and breakfast was great !! The hotel is about 15mins via tram to central which is handy... More

I stayed at this hotel during an unexpected layover in Amsterdam. Due to visa issues, I was not able to board my scheduled flight.

It is centrally located to the places we wanted to go. The room is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is so delicious and the canal cruise is very informative. Most of all, the people are very friendly and helpful!

Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. Location was central but away from the noisy center. Room very stylish and bed was super comfortable. Would recommend booking a room on the canal side, cause tram was a bit noisy on street side where we were. Great breakfast (pancakes were really delicious). Free canal boat trip with complimentary drinks... More

We just stayed here for one night on a stopover between France and Turkey. The hotel is in a really nice location, close to the museums and only about 10 minutes by tram from Amsterdam Central Station. The tram stop (Frederiksplein) is less than a minute's walk away. Our room and bathroom were really clean and comfortable and the staff... More

While we were sadly only in Amsterdam for one night, the Canal Hotel was a wonderful stay for us. We loved our room on the top floor of the second building, facing the Canal. We had a great sleep on the Swedish bed, and the rest of the room was beautiful. Beyond the room, the staff was very helpful in... More

Having booked through an agent, we emailed direct to see if we could upgrade to a canal view with balcony. This was speedily done and we just paid the extra on check in.

The location is perfect for walking or taking the tram or bus. The museum square is only a 12 minute walk and the Palace is a 20 minute walk.
