We've just returned back from a two night stay at the guest house, and as pretty as the view was from the window, I do believe you can get better for your money. We stayed in the canal view room, which was nice and roomy, but we had a few issues. The mattress was awful. We arrived late on the...

Although slightly tricky to find due to the parallel canals, the location is central and quiet - a great combination. The canal view room is huge, has a gorgeous view and is quirkily and beautifully decorated. Having a proper espresso machine is fantastic. The bathroom is down the hall, so not very convenient, but it's a good shower. The TV...

We enjoyed our stay in the Family room at Amstel Canal Guest House tremendously. Ken was extremely kind and helpful. The guest house is located in a very quiet area with just pedestrians and bicycles, no cars. Within walking distance to almost everything. The family room was really spacious for our family of four. Ken suggested to contact him directly...

We stayed in November 2012. We decided to splurge on the deluxe room as it was a special occasion for us, and we don't regret it one bit! It was a super sized room with an amazing view. The bathroom was across the hall, which was unusual but didn't annoy us. Breakfast was simple but enough, though for the price...

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
