Want to stay at hotels with amazing canal views? This post shares the top-rated hotels with canal views in Amsterdam, and my experience of staying at a canal hotel.

Where Is The Best Area To Find Hotels With Canal Views?

You should stay at Canal Belt Area.

It is on the west side of the Amsterdam city center, around 10 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station.

Since the Amsterdam canal is a world heritage and is protected by the local government, there are limited spots for hotel rooms. It is best to book your room early.

Is it worth staying at A Hotel With A Canal View?

The best part of staying at a canal room is that you have private canal view and can wake up to this amazing view. This is like a dream!

It is not cheap staying at a canal hotel, but is it worth it?

The answer is: yes! It is an experience I will never forget!

My partner and I stayed at The Times Hotel Amsterdam, right next to the famous Herengracht, and can say: yes, for sure.

In addition, you can visit my favorite Amsterdam cozy cafes with great atmosphere and views for breakfast or brunch.

Remember: you will probably visit this place once, or you can’t tell if you will ever return.

If you love the Amsterdam canal, book the room with a private canal view since I can guarantee that you will immerse in the Amsterdam canal vibe and not regret your decision.

Pros of staying at A Canal Hotel

Shops, tourist attractions, restaurants, and bars are within walking distance. You can also rent a bike and explore the Canal Belt District.

In addition, it’s relatively quiet, not like the Amsterdam Centrum area. You can enjoy the Amsterdam canal vibe but avoid the busy tourists, and it is quiet after eleven o’clock.

Cons of booking A canal room

It’s great to stay at a historical building; you get to experience the interior style of a renowned Amsterdam house; the only drawback is that the isolation could be better.

While staying in this area, the guests in the next room woke us up once or twice. However, my partner and I are deep sleepers, so we could fall asleep again quickly.

If you are a light sleeper, please do not stay here; look for places close to Museumplein , or choose Hotel2Stay in Sloterdijk or Inntel Hotel in Zaandam.

Another disadvantage is that the food in the area is quite expensive, so you can grab some cheap food if you’d like to spend less money on food.

Best & Affordable Canal House hotels With An Amazing View

I highly recommend The Times Hotel; its price and value are fantastic.

My partner and I stayed there in December; check my The Times Hotel Amsterdam review.

‘t hotel also has a reasonable price and value, but it’s with 17th-century interior style; some people love it, but some don’t.

Of course, there are more good hotels in the area, and you can find the complete list below.

Everyone can find the best place to stay in the Amsterdam Canal Area. If you want a less costly hotel (prices from EUR 100), please check the affordable Canal Belt hotels Amsterdam section.
