My partner and I were just at the Canal House for six nights back on November 19th and had an amazing time! We enjoyed our stay, the hotel is fantastic, the rooms are cozy and very well designed. We stayed there at three different rooms because we were coming in and out and every single room was amazing and we...

I arrived on the Friday at 11am, the room wasn't available yet (which I understand as it's a small hotel and was completely booked). I came back at around 2:30pm and was shown to my room (number 3) which was in the same style as the rooms seen in the pictures on the website. Good size, nice bathroom with shower...

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 ....

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...

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...

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.

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...
