Before I came to Amsterdam I had read about Canal House and knew I wanted to stay an evening there. A boutique luxury property among the canal houses, located close to the Anne Frank House and walking distance to nearly everything.
About the Hotel:
The hotel offers 23 rooms of modern luxury. Throughout the hotel, colors of black and purple reign and a touch of baroque decor glistens in each room. The hotel offers open spaces to gather, a bar, dining, a garden to relax, and the friendliest staff.
A delicious free continental plus style breakfast comes with your stay offering fresh juices, pastries, yogurt, coffee, and other delicious options.
From the moment I arrived, the staff was attentive and very helpful. I arrived early in the morning from the states, and luckily my room was being cleaned already. I waited about 40 minutes in the peaceful garden and then got to my room. Before I even stepped into my room, I was overly impressed with the staffs eagerness to help me get acclimated to the city, answer any questions I had and even entertain me while I waited.
About the room:
I stayed in an exceptional room category during my visit. Located on the first floor with a walk out to the garden and a patio. Equipped with a king size bed, work station, TV, beautifully tiled tub/shower combo, dual vessel sinks, artistic touches, Green and Spring bath products (which are amazing by the way AND you can even purchase some to go), a coffee and tea station with options, and a mini bar with local favorites.
I can’t decide what my favorite part of the room was, but its a tie between the gorgeous bathroom or laying in bed looking at the garden.
- Book in advance. Since the hotel doesn’t have hundreds of rooms, they will sell out.
- The airport is only about 20 minutes away via taxi.
- The hotel is centrally located – you can get just about anywhere in 20 minutes or less walking.
- The garden is a quiet garden. While you don’t have to be absolutely silent, you should keep it down for other users who are enjoying the space.
- Definitely get a coffee or two at breakfast – it is strong and flavorful
- The staff does speak English – which is very helpful for U.S and Canadian visitors
Overall, I loved the hotel and wish I had more time there. This hotel has been one of my favorite stays in all of Europe.
I was hosted by Canal House, but as always, opinions are my own.
Beautiful photos and looks like a great place to stay! I’m planning on going to Amsterdam for the first time next year, will definitely look at this place as an accommodation option.
You will love it! Stay tuned because I will put out some more information on Amsterdam soon ❤️
This hotel looks wonderful! Not sure when I’ll make it back to Amsterdam, but when I do I’m keeping your blog in mind!
That’s greats hear! ? Let me know how your trip goes when you do go
I really love that they have that quiet garden. So nice to have a place to relax and de-stress.
