Fair 4,0
Our room was very hot and we were unable to open windows and there was no air conditioner. The black and purple decor made it depressing.

Ok but pricy, some other drawbacks
Gave Canal House a try given its myriad positive reviews and figured that I’d try a new location as a regular visitor to Amsterdam (20+ visits over the past 10 years). While nicely appointed and the staff was very friendly, it was candidly overpriced for what it is and had some drawbacks. While the location is quite bucolic as it’s situated on a major canal, it’s not particularly conveniently located, which I was willing to accept when I booked (usually stay at Breitner House which is on the East side and wonderful). More disappointing was the noise from the bar across the canal, which was made worse by my first floor canal view room. Oddly, after my first night there, I awoke to a mild sewage smell in my room, which I can only assume was emanating from the street-level drainage system. Overall, I wanted to like Canal House more but don’t think I’d stay there again.

What You Need To Know About the Canal House
This hotel was absolutely a great location. However, if you have health issues, the steps might be overwhelming. They had an elevator but it wasn't readily accessible. We went during a heat wave, so the absence of air conditioning made us extremely uncomfortable. The tub and shower were located right in the bedroom, with a "curtain" made out of fiberglass and no other curtain for privacy. This feature might prove awkward for some situations. The staff was incredibly attentive for anything we asked of them. The complimentary breakfast did not include hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate), but the choices for breakfast were more than adequate. The room included a fully stocked refrigerator and snack options....a little pricey. All in all, our stay there was fun and memorable!

Great place, incredible service. Alex is a star!
Could not more highly recommend a hotel. It is more expensive than others in the area, but for good reason.
