Great location. Very cheerful staff . Clean, comfy bed, good breakfast. One thing, suggest signs on the doors leading to the bedrooms at nighttime to remind guests to be quiet and respect those who might be trying to sleep!

Where do I poo????
Hôtel and staff very good but the room was not. I booked an en suite room but there was no toilet. This was completely unacceptable.

Fair 4,0
Cute lobby but rooms expensive and terrible.
While this hotel had a nice lobby and was in a good location, my almost $300 room was in the basement with a window that looked out into a garbage alley. The room was also under the stairs and next to the bar which was unbelievably noisy, plus the room itself was small and starkly furnished.

This was our 2nd stay here. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The hotel is really well designed. The rooms are small but somehow they’ve managed to fit everything you need into a well designed space. Really easy walk from the train station. We’ll be back.

Exceeded expectations!
Was dubious as the description on here doesn’t do it justice. Was expecting basic but got a nice surprise! Canal view room 404 was amazingly spacious with an amazing shower. Couldn’t fault the service and the breakfast was lovely. Absolutely no complaints from a frequent traveller.

Our go-to place in Amsterdam
Max Brown Canal will be our go-to hotel when in Amsterdam. A very warm, hospitable place in a super location. Nice cozy bar area and good solid breakfast. The most helpful staff one could ask for . Only downer is very steep, narrow stairs for carrying luggage (no elevator). They serve their very own pizza and host small music groups!

Lovey hotel and surrounding area
I sent my parents on holiday here and they, not being in the flush of youth, really liked the hotel and the staff but there were too many steps for their liking. The access to the hotel was a little difficult for them. However, area around the hotel is excellent and very convenient for the canal and bus tours as well as the railway station.
