We have just returned from a 4 night stay in this lovely hotel. We know the city well and think that this area is quite the loveliest - near to everything but quiet and picturesque. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from a tram stop so it's easy to get around by tram as well as on foot. There are lots of good places to eat very near including The Pancake Bakery on Prinsengracht. Should I ever knowingly have to choose the place for my last meal, this is the place!!!
Canal House is the real thing - steep windy stairs. (If you have any mobility problems do ring before booking to discuss your requirements. Seriously, the stairs were nearly vertical, spiral and narrow. We felt like mountaineers hauling ourselves up them - yes the Pancake Bakery visits did not help but even Edmund Hillary may have been challenged! The very kind receptionist carried our bags up.)
Our room was perfect. Dark but that is the style.The beds were so comfortable and the goose down duvet perfect. (I even sneaked a look at the label to see the manufacturer!) We so liked having an open plan bathroom but do make sure you know your travelling partner.
Breakfast was nicely presented and a good choice. Eggs were boiled to order and the coffee was great - lovely cappucino or whatever you wanted. For the room price I would have expected some hot items e.g. bacon and fried eggs.
The receptionists were all very helpful (very efficient booking e mail confirmations etc) as were the dining room staff.
All in all this was a fantastic holiday. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Canal House.
