If you like mass tourism and standard hotel rooms, the Canal House is not for you. This is a very unique boutique hotel with a stylish, cosy design that totally matches the modern/ traditional feel of Amsterdam. The building itself is one of the old originals with creaking floors and slanted walls and many of the old furnishings found a place in the modern design. The rooms are not huge, but well planned and stocked with all that a luxury hotel should offer. Including air-conditioning. Of particular note is the beautiful and well tended garden out back with its tea pavilion that is a blissful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. The location was perfect for us in the trendy but peaceful corner of town but only a short walk (or bike ride - use the hotels' bikes) away from the main sights. The staff were great also, providing us with last minute tickets to the Anne Frank museum (saving us a 3 hour wait) and to the Rijksmuseum (saving as 2 hours' line there also) and providing wonderful tips on what to do and where to go.
Absolute clear recommendation for a romantic weekend away. We loved it.More
