The staff are simply awesome! Loved the mattress and bathroom amenities! The location is quiet perfect. The view is fine. The food (breakfast only) is great. No room service, but who cares :) I simply fill in love with the place. Btw they have an espresso machine in the room.

We stayed for four nights in a rear facing standard room. The room was like a cruise liner cabin; small, cosy and with large port hole like windows that gave us lovely intimate views of a very quiet section of the canal system. We initially had a problem opening a window but the incredibly helpful young staff quickly sorted this...

We had stayed there before and loved it so much we booked two rooms (there were four of us) for four days. Because we had stayed previously, our travel agent rang to book a particular room, first floor (my partner has recently had knee surgery) balcony with magnificent canal view. Unfortunately the room was double booked, something that we learned...

I made this reservation well in advance for the Deluxe Canal Room for 6 nights. When I arrived, I said I didn't mind walking up stairs, as long as I had a quiet room. I was shown to Room #4 which is directly behind the reception desk. While the room was nicely decorated, I could see a problem right away:...

Beautiful building, rooms well laid out with quirks. Nice bathroom and accessories. We were on the ground floor to the garden and were awoken early each morning as the dining room was above us with wooden floors so very noisy. Limited food options or recommedations when arriving late. We have stayed in many five star hotels and for the cost...

I've been here just one night and it was a business trip. At the beginning I thought that was not the right hotel for business trip, I saw it more for couples but at the end I enjoyed. The room is very nice and the guy at the reception is perfect! The location is also not far from the main...

I went to this hotel for 3 nights the 18 September and I was extremely disappointed, and this for several reasons: - we book the hotel in June, and they gave us the worst room they have (the 11th) on the street with a window you can't perfectly closed. I let you imagine the noise when you see the location...

We spent 3 nights in Amsterdam in November 2014. Booked ahead and were very happy with our choice. We had a room on the top floor, which was large and beautifully decorated. Unfortunately both myself and the fella need a window open to sleep well, which isn't a good idea with a road facing bedroom, but really the road/tram noise...

The Amsterdam Canal Hotel is absolutely adorable. It is in a great neighborhood and offered lovely views of the canals. The room was decorated well and I would describe it as delightfully European. Nice new clean bathrooms. The king bed was two twins put together but was still very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was good and their was outdoor...
