This review is strictly for the "Canal House." My wife and I just returned from a stay at Eric's. We thoroughly loved it. The location is great! The property is really, really cool and unique. Beware! If you are not fit or have any mobility issues, the stairs will probably be problematic, to say the least. But, if can handle the stairs, the B&B is one of the coolest places you will ever stay. Great location! Casa Peru is a very nice restaurant located next door. Close to Anne Frank House. Amstersdam is completely accessible from this location. The bed in the unit is a little uneven and might be uncomfortable for some, but all in all we absolutely loved this place.
Tip: Addresses In Amsterdam can be a little confusing even for the local cabdrivers. If you can pin point the location on your smart phone (Look for Casa Peru Restaurant...it is right next door) , map it and show it to the driver before you head out, you can probably save a little hassle. Our driver got lost and wanted to charge us for his incompetence, even though he claimed to have lived in Amsterdam his entire life. Judging by his name and thick Indian accent, we found this unlikely. We had two cab drivers who were confounded by the address.
