We stayed in an Exceptional room with Canal views from three large window. The staff is super friendly and helpful and seem to really want to help you have a wonderful trip. The breakfasts are nice but pretty standard with pastries, breads, granola, fruits, meats and cheeses. The hotel has no kitchen. Our room was very comfortable and spacious for Amsterdam. As American's we found it odd that the bath and shower were part of the living space, but we adjusted. The only real drawback was all the steep stairs to walk up to get to our room. This was taxing after a day of walking around the city. The location is convenient to most of the areas you would want to get to in the city. The tram is a few minute walk.

Very nice stay. I would go back,

Room Tip: Exceptional Room was very nice and spacious with a wonderful canal view.

We just stayed one night on our way to Africa. Arrived very tired after a long flight. The rooms are nice and quiet for sleeping and the curtains are quite heavy which kept out the sunshine. We had a "better room" but there was no view except that of another wall. I didn't mind too much because we were only there one night, but wouldn't have loved looking at it for several days. The inside of the hotel is a little bit of a maze and we easily got confused in the hallways. The outdoor courtyard is really lovely and quite unique for Amsterdam. Would be nice to sit and enjoy a glass of wine out there. We enjoyed the breakfast of cold cuts, cheeses, yogurts, croissants, etc. which is included in your room rate. The location is really good, in Jordaan district and close to some nice spots to eat or have a drink along the canals. We walked to the hotel from the train station and it was totally manageable, about a 15 minute walk. Wifi was included in the rate and worked fine. The staff were friendly, and offered us a cool drink when we arrived, showed us our room, and brought up the luggage. I loved the bathtub, one of the nicest ever. The price was not that cheap, but this is Amsterdam after all. Overall a nice stay. If I stayed again for a few days, I would definitely request a room with a better view.

This hotel is in a very picturesque part of Amsterdam - the Keizergracht - and perfectly situated for seeing the main sites of the city. We enjoyed the quirkiness of the plush and rather decadent interiors. The decor is a kind of goth/glam (think black and gold) with many of the original house's features preserved. The breakfast room was particularly attractive. We chose a "great" room looking over the back which had a lovely view of the garden and mature trees. It had two sinks in the middle of the room and the bath/shower was not separate which might pose a problem to those who prefer more intimacy.... The staff were all charming and helpful - we thought it was a great hotel, if a little pricey.

Room Tip: If you don't want noise, request a garden view room.

Canal House is perfectly located. Everything to see is a short walk or tram ride. The staff are amazing-early AM coffees in the dining room before it opened for breakfast-to making reservations, buying tickets to museums, and dispensing excellent advice.
Very friendly and gracious at all times. We spent four nights here and will stay here again.

Room Tip: We had a canal view. I would recommend paying the price for the view. We were very pleased that our room was available at 8:30 AM after our nighttime flight to Amsterdam.

This is a small (23 rooms) hotel, with a great location in the middle of Amsterdam, in a fantastic setting that allows for a small backyard garden. The setting also is the reason because is so confuse inside and with a lot of steep stairs.
The staff is nice and friendly but the first flaw was the lack of WiFi during the 5 days i stayed there. Not only the lack of WiFi but the inability of fixing an apparently server problem. And i don't like the first answer they gave to me that "the WiFi is down and now is Saturday and no one works during the weekend at the computer company" (No staff on call???)
The room was very good although i had stayed in a medium size one and not in the smaller ones. I liked a lot the bathroom and the bed. The toiletries were very good also and the blu ray player with some free movies to see was a nice touch.
The breakfast was the second major flaw because, although is composed of fresh products the variety was lacking and with no hot options people get tired after the first two or three days, The breakfast room was superb and with a nice view to the garden.
I dont like also the fact that my credit card was charged a caution and that i had to ask to cancel it in the end of my stay.
And i never have stayed in a city hotel that closes is doors at midnight...
Overall a nice hotel with everything to be a great small boutique hotel, but misses some important things.
