Beautiful hotel with very friendly staff

Location: Close to the Heineken Experience and museums. A beautiful walk in to see the flower market, palace and central city. Tram stops at the corner.
This was our first trip to Amsterdam and I am so glad we chose this hotel. It is a little out of the city center, but an easy walk or tram ride. From the front desk to breakfast to cleaning crew, the staff was super friendly and welcoming. They booked tour tickets right there so we didn't have to wait in line. They also helped us decide the best route to see the most sights during our limited stay. The room was small, but very nice and clean in a quiet residential portion of the city. We would definitely stay here again if we ever make it back to Amsterdam.

Hotel on a canal in Amsterdam

Sometimes you find a gem, and the Amsterdam Canal Hotel is one of them. Nice, small hotel, really overlooking a canal in the heart of Amsterdam. It fit my criteria exactly. The hotel is within 10 minutes walk to the big museums, and easily walkable to the heart of Old Town Amsterdam. But yet, it is just enough off the beaten track so as to not be overwhelmed by tourists. The hotel is in a former house. The rooms were expertly fitted with the latest comforts; nice bed, nice shower, and facilities. It is very quiet at night, at least on the canal side. The staff are convivial and eager to please. The breakfast was more than sufficient. One caution, it is not an accessible hotel. There are narrow, steep steps to all levels. Charming in its own way, but not for wheelchairs and canes (and they tell you this when you register).

pretty place in nice area

Pros: The staff was amazing. Lots of attention to details
Cons: drain in the bathroom was slow. and hooks for hanging clothes would be nice due to liminted space.
Location: Close to museums, trams, hop on hop off buses and canal boats proved to be the best location in Amsterdam.
I booked on line and therefore was blind as to the real hotel. This wonderful little hotel is tucked away from hustle and bustle but on a canal. I was surprised that a fabulous breakfast was included in the price
