Fodor's Review

Friday's book market on nearby Spui Square lends a literary ambience to these 10 connected, stylishly decorated 17th- and 18th-century houses, where Howard Norman set part of his novel The Museum Guard and many well-known writers are regulars. Two lounges, functioning as a breakfast room and a library, are elegantly decorated with Oriental rugs, chandeliers, clocks, paintings, and antiques. The canalside rooms are spacious, with large floor-to-ceiling windows, while those at the rear are quieter but smaller and darker; attic rooms have beamed ceilings. Service is attentive and friendly.

Somewhat dissappointed

I stayed here a few years ago. The room they gave me was in the basement and felt like it. The furnishings looked like they came out of the sixties. The bathroom was of good size and the main parts of the hotel were very nice. I would stay at the Canal House next time I go to Amsterdam.

Perfect location

Such nice help at the concierge. A bit noisy since the windows had to stay open but a great location and a great value. Rooms were very comfortable and clean.

Charm Personified...Amsterdam with a View

Loved the atmosphere of this hotel, from the wonderful collection of books by writers who have stayed here to the delightful breakfasts served each day. Our room overlooked the Singel Canal on the top floor and we truly enjoyed having tea served in the afternoon. The staff was great and obtained a great car and driver for us to go north to visit Hoorn and Edam and the enclosing dike. A true home away from home.
