This is a great play to stay because ..... the location right over Lijnsbaansgracht canal is superb and our room had three quirky hexagonal windows overlooking the waters with the classic scene of bridges and bikes - there was even a window at the head of the bed so we could wake up and enjoy the view from the pillow....

Stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of my time in this beautiful hotel. Ok, the stairs are a bit of a pain but the hotel has far more positives than negatives (and is deserving if 5star review). Complimentary drinks and snacks in minibar, very comfortable mattress, less than 5 minutes walk from tram 4 stop, gorgeous buffet... More

We stayed at the The Amsterdam Canal Residence Hotel for 6 days and enjoyed every moment. The hotel is situated in an authentic historic building and the view of the canal from our bedroom window was spectacular. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful and the delicious breakfast was a great start to the day. Highly recommended :)

I'm really lucky I found this place for four nights in Amsterdam. Having been to Amsterdam several times, I wanted something away from the center, but easy walking distance. This fit the bill on the canal ring. From Centraal Station, you can take a tram. It's easy to get tickets at GVB to the left of the station. Several trams... More

We had a lovely welcome from the friendly staff. It is a nice conversion of a classic Amsterdam house. But be warned this means narrow rooms and very steep winding staircases. There is no lift.

We appeal to a broad spectrum of urban travelers, without reducing everything to the lowest common denominator. ... more   less
