I sometimes wonder in which hotel I would stay if I was a tourist visiting Amsterdam. I actually have one on top of my wishlist: The Dylan. When I heard about the Canal House, which will open this November, I instantly had to hotels on my list. In addition to the prestigious L’Hotel in Paris and the renowned country house hotel and spa Cowley Manor in the English Cotswolds, in early November 2010, proprietors Peter and Jessica Frankopan will open Canal House in Amsterdam. This luxury boutique hotel boasts 23 rooms and has been built in 3 authentic Canal Houses on Keizersgracht.
It is the contrast between the authentic features of the 17th century canal-side townhouses and the modern design created by Concrete Architects and the Curious Hotel Group that make this hotel so unique. The rooms are available in five categories: Good, Better, Great, Exceptional and Best. Every room is different and equipped with the latest technology.
I really love the characteristic Dutch features mixed with modern design. It makes me want to play tourist asap.
