Amstel Canal Guest House
Ranked #163 of 341 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 July 2009

The Amstel Canal is situated in a great location overlooking the canal. Close to bars, restuarants, shops.The trip was with 5 friends for a 40th birthday celebration and the guest house for perfect for such an occasion, we had both rooms one on the ground floor and one on the first floor with superb views of the canal. The rooms are decorated to an excellent standard and are maintained and cleaned to a very high standard. The guest house has an excellent feel to in and creates a relaxing environment. The kitchen is well stocked with fresh products for breakfast and if you want a bite to eat for lunch.

The hospitality of the owner Ken was first class who made you feel welcome and at home, nothing was too much trouble and he was only to glad to offer advise if asked on where to eat and visit.

Ken truly made our visit memorable and played a huge part in all the party having a fabulous time. Will definately visit again.

Would certainly recommend The Amstel Canal to others.

Ken , our host could not have been more friendly and welcoming , despite our late arrival. 3 of us (mother and sister) stayed in the large ground floor room. There is a larger beautifully decorate double bedroom with plasma tv, couch and table. Then a single bed with a couch in a large adjoining room. This can be separated by sliding doors. The space is large, bright and welcoming.
Ken could not have done more – even sneaking down to the kitchen to endure the heat was on there for when we got up! He had even left a bottle of wine and fruit out for us on our second night.
Breakfast was plentiful and lovely coffee. The location is great for all the usual tourist attractions, but the area around the accommodation also has lovely restaurant, cafes and bars.
We spent half our time talking about how great the accommodation was, and really didn’t want to leave. This is the type of place and experience you hope your online booking will turn out to be.

we had the most wonderful stay at the amstel. it is far more than just an appartment, it is owned by the lovely ken who made us feel so welcome. He has will give you advice on where to go if you ask him and cleans the appartment every day to an amazing standard. When I told him it was my thirtieth he put a lovely bottle of red wine and cookies in the room, and whilst we were there we had two fresh bunches of flowers. The kitchen is very well stcoked with food for breakfast, but plese remember it is an appartment not a hotel it is make your own breakfast and the shower room is along the corridor not attached to your room. The appartment has the most gorgeuos views over the amstal canal, and is in a great location. It is withing walking distatnce from everywhere and epsecially close to the rembrant area . .. The room really is amazing we stayed in the appartment for two he also has one on the lower floor which is bigger. You really must stay here fo the price no where else could compare.
