Just returned from Amsterdam and a week-long stay at the Canal house. Great location in the gorgeous Jordan/Canal Rings neighborhood, on the Keizergracht canal. This is a quieter and very different world form the old city center/red light bustle & grit, yet it is walking distance to that and pretty much everywhere you want to visit. Also very close to some of the Amsterdam’s best restaurants and cafes. Hotel is a converted typical Dutch/Amsterdam canal building which gives it an authentic feel. This is a small boutique hotel. Hotel common areas are very design centric and surprisingly chic. Feel is modern European, updated and fresh, but with respect for the old, nicely done, though If you are like me you will find the front sitting room feels too "late night club" which is a bit incongruous during the daytime . Breakfast room is beautiful. Continental breakfast served was very good. Marvelous coffee! Great start to the day. Garden is an unexpected treat; large, quiet, absolutely lovely and barely utilized. After a long day of walking and doing, a quiet drink in the garden with the birds chirping is a memorable and simple pleasure. The room we stayed in was called an "exceptional " room. I didn't see other rooms, but can confirm our room was, in fact, exceptional. It felt spacious (for an urban hotel), clean and newly done, with sunny windows overlooking the canal. We really liked the visual design, fun, sexy, dark walls and floors with brightly colored fabrics, bedding and accents. The layout of the room was unusual, but worked very well. It’s an open format with the sinks and tub in the room, the shower was a darkened glass enclosure visible from the room. No, you don't want to share this room with the mother-in-law and the kids. Yes, you do want to be here with your spouse or significant other. The hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating. Concierge work was excellent. Special thank you to concierge staff and in particular one concierge named "Inge" for spending time to figure out some special activities for us far and beyond what we hoped for.

There are some things a visitor should be aware of before they book here. Firstly while the interior retrofit is charming, the stairs to many rooms (including ours) are really steep. While this is quite common in Amsterdam, if you are not physically fit or have vertigo make sure you get a room accessible by elevator (I am not kidding!). Because this is a smaller hotel occasionally the staff can get a bit overwhelmed and you may have to patiently wait for a bag to be brought upstairs or to speak to the concierge about dinner reservations. Hotel does not have some common amenties (like a fitness room).

We enjoyed our stay here and recommend it highly!

Some Amsterdam activities highlights: Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank museum, bike trip in the countryside, walking the Jordan & Browersgracht neighborhoods, shopping the nine streets, outdoor drinks at T’Smalle, dinner at Vinkles, dinner at Assagi, day trip to Delft…..

Room Tip: Canal view room was excellent but suspect that garden view room is excellent too (and probably a bit quiter too)

Just got back from 3 nights at the Canal House. We had booked a better room, but at check in we we're offered an upgrade to an exceptional room.So we Stayed in room 12 with a view over the canal. Room was chic and sexy with a walk in rain shower and super comfortable bed. Besides being centrally located, our favorite part of the hotel were the staff. They were all genuine and keen to help us book a cab, or dinner, or print some things, or serve Coronas. You can walk to dinner every night and not be disappointed.

Some points of critique would be: a fairly average breakfast (good coffee though), no lively bar scene at hotel bar/ lots of fruit flies around the back of the hotel bar made it not so nice to hang around there. Best to book directly with the hotel as they will give the best rates.

We booked the Canal House because it's on the list of the 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World'. I had some bad experiences with the SLHW already and therefore I was kind of skeptical. But the small hotel in the trend (if not the trendiest) part of A-Dam came to be a very nice experience.
Staff was really friendly, rooms (we had the 'good room') was small but modern, clean, well decorated, nice amenities, and quite (!) although there was 'Gay Pride' outside.

Breakfast was good, plus point for the freshly squeezed fruit juices.The garden is a wonderful little oasis, you must have a drink their as well as at their bar, which is also stylish and a romantic at the same time.

The location is just perfect: not in the middle of the tourist traps (around the Dam) but also not secluded, we hired a bike and off we went to the museums, shops, bars, etc... the best way to discover the town. The Jordaan is a very nice area to stay, with charming cafes, restaurants, galleries, shops.

I would recommend the hotel to couples but NOT families.

Located in the Jordaan, Canal House is just a wonderful little hotel. The Jordaan is incredibly peaceful and picturesque, yet within walking distance of the action closer to the center of the city.

Four things stood out at Canal House:
1) The Room. Yes, it is a little cozy, but so well appointed and with THE most comfortable bed either of has ever slept in! The room looks exactly the way it is pictured on their website (which is not always the case!) The room includes a nice little mini bar (which we used more than we should have....) and an assortment of proprietary shampoos/lotions that were very nice.

2) The garden. What an oasis! We wished we had carved out a little time for an evening drink here, it really is a beautiful, peaceful spot.

3) The Dining Room. The room itself is charming, warm and inviting, and overlooks the aforementioned garden. We were at first a little disappointed that the breakfast is continental style, but the quality of the cheeses and breads is so good that we ended up loving it.

4) The staff....friendly, cheerful and helpful, without being overbearing or snotty.

We would not hesitate to stay here again if we were to come back to Amsterdam.

I would NOT pick this hotel for families traveling with children, it's much more of a couple's place....but then again, I don't think I'd choose Amsterdam as a family vacation spot, just not enough stuff for the kiddies to do IMHO.

Room Tip: We did not have a view of Canal or Garden, and were still quite content, but I imagine one of these would be even nicer.
