Myself and my husband have just spent to days at the Canal House but wish we could have had more. We will definitely return.

We had the most amazing experience staying at the Canal House! We stayed in the very best room, this was the end of vacation and we wanted to just relax and be pampered. The room was to die for! The room was huge, gorgeous and sexy! It was on the top floor over looking the canal and beautiful Amsterdam canal...

Great hotel in a super location. Room was excellent, dark and deep purple velvet feeling. Really friendly and efficient staff, cleaning lady ran after me as we left to give me my watch that I had accidently left in the room. Good breakfast. Watch out for the stairs to the upper floors, good exercise but take you're climbing boots.

After several visits to the city, I chose to try this on the basis of its TA rating. It is perfect. By a canal in the Jordaan district, it's an architectural gem...the decor is fantastic, and makes every photo look like a Rembrandt. Breakfast is massive; coffee is perfect. There are super restaurants in stumbling distance (try de Luyte and...

I stayed just one night at Canal House but wish I could have stayed longer. The room was beautiful, with lots of space and everything you'd need for a relaxing stay. The location was perfect - very central but just outside of the hustle and bustle with a beautiful view over the canal. It very close to the Anne Frank...

Canal housed is a small hotel located within walking distance of all the main tourist locations. We were in an upgraded room which was very spacious. The hotel has a luxurious feel with the high ceilings and elegant decor. Nice and quiet as well.

spent 2 nights here, and found the place to be wonderful. Old canal house, with recent renovation. Excellent breakfast and very nice rooms. Location was great: 1 block from Ann Frank, and 10 minute walk to the Dam Square. I had the 'better' room, which was not large, but very comfortable. One thing: old Canal houses have narrow staircases. Watch...
