Canal House is an excellent small, elegant hotel, in a great location in the canal district of Amsterdam. The hotel only has 30 rooms or so and has a nice intimate feel. The location is very good as it's in the heart of the quiet canal district and within walking distance of many attractions , restaurants , bars etc .... More

We spent three nights here as a special birthday and anniversary treat. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough to help without being overbearing. They recommend three excellent restaurants to eat near the hotel. Our room was very luxurious with the most comfortable bed and gorgeous bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious with a continental breakfast included along... More

Fantastic stay, very romantic and wouldn't change a thing about it. Staff were helpful with booking all our excursions, rooms were clean and the food is amazing. Dark rooms, but this was great for a lie in. The mulled wine in the hotel bar was a right touch, very romantic all round experience. To Do...Anne Frank, Van Gogh, Rijkmuseum, Black... More

This place was amazing. It blended old Amsterdam style with modern luxury. The appointments in the room were perfect. Sheets and towels were exceptional quality and the lotions and soaps were in large 12 oz bottles, rather than tiny sample size. The hotel provided bath oils, lotions, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and both liquid and bar hand soap. These products... More

The staff was Very accomadating, upgraded our room to "exceptional" and we got what we wanted, a canal view, nice big bedroom, well laid out, big tub and shower, comfortable bed, nice down pillows and comforter. Rooms are a bit dark, in fact the whole color vibe is dark, but that didn't really bother us. The one thing you have... More

A lovely hotel,in a beautiful location. Perfectly located for restaurants, walking to museums and galleries and Sunday markets. Pre-arrival support including booking of restaurants was excellent. What they failed to say was that air conditioning in the hotel had broken down. Our small bedroom (described as one of their Great Rooms) had one area taken up by a large and... More

We wanted to find an Amsterdam hotel that was centrally located but in a quiet neighborhood. Canal House was perfect! Our room faced out on the canal and we awoke each morning to a beautiful view over the canal followed by a lovely breakfast. Our room was great and the staff at the hotel was fabulous!

Everything is dark here, apart from the flowers and the greenery in the garden. I ended up tripping over things. The hotel is lovely but somehow the darkness does not go with the ambience of restored old Dutch canal houses. The main recepción has black walls while the ceiling retains its original coloured decorating in a white setting. Rooms are... More

Our friend who lives in Amsterdam booked us this hotel. What a nice surprise! After 3 weeks in Paris and Belgium we arrived and my only complaint is that we didn't get to spend more time here. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Love the bathrobes and turn down services. We feel very special here.
