Over the course of the last 2 months we have been guests in all levels and types of accommodations. We felt that our one night in The Amsterdam Canal Hotel was deserving of special mention for its combination of location, price, staff, and amenities.
The Amsterdam Canal Hotel is a charming boutique hotel located on an outer canal ring of the old city. It is just a 10 minute walk from the Rijksmuseum, and 20 minute walk from the Amsterdam Central Train Station. It is also conveniently located near a number of the city’s tram lines.
We found the price to be quite reasonable when we booked the room online, but we were not prepared for the surprising amenities included at no additional cost: In room Mini-bar with complimentary beverages, in room coffee and tea service, a bar and lounge that opens onto a deck aside the canal (the beer, wine, and soft drinks are complimentary!), and a remarkable breakfast bar that includes eggs and pancakes cooked to order, again at no additional cost.
The staff was friendly and most helpful. Our only “regret” is that our schedule did not allow for additional time at this wonderful little hotel.
Peace Everyone. Pete
PS. The three crosses that appear in the hotel’s logo are the crosses of St. Andrew and not a reference to the “Red Light District” which is not close to the hotel. The mark of the Three Crosses of St. Andrews is the official coat of arms for Amsterdam.
