A friend and I just got back from the Canal Boutique apartments. I have been to Amsterdam many times, usually stay at the Amrath (which is very nice) but I wish I had found these apartments sooner. Great value for money, and well appointed.
We stayed in Apartment 15, on the top floor, facing the back courtyards. It was absolutely silent, my friend and I both slept like logs. It was so nice to hear church bells and feel like we were in the trees and sky of Amsterdam. Lots of windows but it felt very private.
I had the upstairs bedroom, it was lush, a perfect bed, tall ceilings, very comfortable. The bathroom was great, also upstairs, a HUGE bathtub with jacuzzi. The only problem was the water pressure was very low and made the shower practically useless, even though there was never-ending hot water. I had time, though, to forgo the shower and take long luxurious hot baths, so I guess it's a win-win!
My friend slept downstairs in the living room which was set up with comfortable beds. She was very happy too.
The senseo coffee machine in the kitchen was great, made good coffee, and they provided plenty of coffee pods.
A couple suggestions: a kitchen towel or two would not be amiss, no way to dry anything off in the very nice kitchen.
The pillows are very comfortable and soft, but they are small, so maybe a few more would be nice.
And yes, the stairs are very steep, but that is to be expected of Amsterdam houses. Roger was very helpful and hefted my luggage for me, he is strong!
All in all, I highly recommend the Canal Boutique apartments. Perfectly located (there's a great restaurant right on the corner, very cozy), high quality (the pictures on the website don't really do justice, especially to the bathroom!) and I would definitely stay again.
