Our family of 4 enjoyed a few nights at the Canal House which is a few minutes walk from Paul & Karens main bed & breakfast residence. It was self contained with 1 bedroom and 2 single beds in the living area. It was clean and comfortable with a good internet service. It is on the ground level with views over the canal from the living room windows. It was an easy 30 minute walk through the park into the city. The park itself is a great place to spend an afternoon with extensive play equipment for the children and a coffee shop for the adults. Cereal and milk was left for us for breakfast, along with a plentiful supply of local Gin for a night cap.

A very good place to stay! The room is nice and clean, and have good storage options for your clothes and things. In the hall outside the room is a little kitchen where you find milk, different kinds of cereals, coffe, tea and hot chocolate to make your own breakfast. There is also a fridge where you can keep drinks or food. The owner is welcoming and helpful. He gave us a lot of information about maps, the trams, parking the car with a low charge, and what to do in Amsterdam, etc. This is a B&B where we gladly would stay the next time we come to Amsterdam.

My husband, daughter and I stayed there for 6 nights and we had a wonderful experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the clean and large apartament, chocolates and the special gin that everyday delighted us. The location of the apartment was magnificent, in a quite area next to the canal with beautiful views and near the centre.My daughter enjoyed Vondelpark at 5 minutes walk from the apartment and the good restaurants near it. Without a doubt, we will repeat this B&B when we return to the beautiful Amsterdam.

This place is not only beautifully located on a lovely canal, it is central to everything. Vondelpark is a lovely walk,and in May when we were there had lots of flowers, cyclists and joggers. The room was large, clean and well thought out, with three large windows overlooking the canal. Paul was extemely helpful and a fount of knowledge. If we ever go back to Amsterdam this is where we will stay. Thanks, Paul. Ross Davidson & Christine van Rossum.

Nice & clean rooms , very comfortable and romantic. Paul & Karen are very friendly & cooperative.It was nice to spend time in this beautyful stay. Though two little deficites: 1. You need a 30 min walk to reach the center 2. the breakfast consisting of only cereals & milk is a bit short to be honest.
Dear guest and dear reader, thank you for your enthusiasm and your nice review. We would just like to respond to your comment about "deficiencies". Most guests love our location Although it is a good 20 mins walk through the beautiful Vondelpark to the city centre, its also a nice, quiet, leafy area on the canal with lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. Our breakfast is indeed simple. It was Rick Steves who has featured us in his guide book for many years, who advised us to offer this kind of simple breakfast so that we could keep our room rate at a reasonable level. There are at least 5 local places you can have a larger breakfast should you want to. Best regards Paul and Karen
