Canal Rooms Amsterdam is located in a monumental, 18th century building along the picturesque Brewers Canal. There is free Wi-Fi here. You can stay in a studio or room, each with a private bathroom. There are also coffee and tea facilities, a refrigerator and microwave in each accommodation. The studio has a fully-equipped kitchenette. The Jordaan district offers a number of small shops, galleries, cafés and restaurants. Each Saturday, there is an organic food market right across the street. Canal House is located an 8-minute walk from the Anne Frank House. Both Amsterdam Central Station and Dam Square are a 15-minute walk away and offer various tram connections to other parts of the city, including the Museumplein.
Lovely room, really clean. Staff really kind allowing us to check out when we wanted on our last day as they had no other guests arriving. Definately recommend!!
Only the location.
When you arrive at your hotel in Amsterdam after a long journey you are surprised that you are required to pay in full with cash up front for the full cost of your stay even before they give you the key. Despite what you think of what is offered, you have little choice with your luggage on the sidewalk and you are too tired to find another place. We loved Amsterdam but our experience was significantly diminished by this accommodation.
Canal House was excellent. Private residence of a family. Gives you the impression of local lfe in Amsterdam. House right on the canal with beautiful outlook. Excellent location and probably could not be better. 2 blocks from central train station and main city. 2 blocks from Anne Frank house. Supermarket and bakery one block away. Cafes and restaurants one block away. Small kitchen for cooking very good. Washing machine in bathroom very handy. Owner very nice and obliging. Really has everything we could ask for at a reasonable price. Would stay here again without hesitation.
No lift, so luggage movement upstairs was difficult. Very steep stairway, so guests with disabilities or poor gait would have difficulty. No hair dryer in room. Need a clothes horse or similar to allow clothes to dry after washing.
Excellent, excellent location and the immediate area is very quiet. Close to the city centre and The Jordaan district. Other sights are easily acessible via the Stop-and-Go bus which passes the hotel. The nearby Belhamel Restaurant makes an excellent lunch. As a self-catering apartment, the facilities are good and the double room was spacious and comfortable. We had a room facing the rear of the hotel and overlooked a neat garden, although some guests might prefer a view of the Canal. We could come and go as we pleased. The room was furnished with a table, 2 single beds, a stove, dish washbasin and had an en-suite toilet and shower. The room and decor is basic but definitely not shabby as a previous review stated.
No credit card facilities although this is clearly stated on the Apaprtment page. No Receipt for the cash payment. Some guests might not like the steep stairs but this was no problem for us.
Friendliness and helpfulness
had private entrance, great location
This is an apartment directly let by the charming owner, in a canal house in a residential district close (5 min) to Amsterdam station. Shops and restaurants are nearby and this is not a 'tourist' district, unlike the tacky places around Rembrandtplein. It's reasonably furnished and the bathroom is new and very clean.
It was an apartment
would have liked it to be more welcoming with information on the city and a vase of flowers & some pictures would make it appealing
Very good location. The owner has been friendly.
I didn't like the owner asked me to pay at check in.
I like the fact it was not an impersonal hotel chain. The owner was very friendly and laid back.
I thought the rate was high considering there was no breakfast or maps. I think it would have been really easy for the owner to make you feel like you were paying a hotel price for the personal touch, by adding some local information, or a little vase of flowers from the garden, or some tv pages...
