Canal House

Canal House Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Canal House Hotel is a sumptuous 23-room boutique hotel towering above a canal in Amsterdam's Canal Ring district. The lovely brick front suggests something more traditional, but the interior is flashy and fashionable. Swanky rooms are among Amsterdam's most luxurious, and are decked out with rich purple fabrics and dark woods. More modest travelers might have an issue with the open layouts of some room types, though parts of the bathroom are enclosed. Throughout, bathrooms feature gorgeous tiling and modern basin sinks; many have soaking tubs as well as walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads. The Great Room, an upscale lounge and dining space, gives guests access to books and games, and the hotel itself is only minutes away from canal tours, shopping, and local eateries.

Hotel Pulitzer, a Luxury Collection Hotel

Hotel Pulitzer, a Luxury Collection Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Hotel Pulitzer is a charming luxury property in the Canal Loop of Amsterdam. The hotel is made up of a block of 25 restored 17th and 18th century canal houses and is full of historic details. All rooms are unique with warm design touches such as exposed brick walls and wood floors. Most rooms are flooded with natural light, and some have canal views; those that don't overlook the hotel's garden. One drawback is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi in rooms, but it's free in the lobby and the small business center. The hotel has a grill restaurant, bar, wine salon, espresso bar, and 24-hour room service. In the warmer months, lunch and dinner can be eaten in the hotel's garden. There is also an art gallery and fitness center on-site. Besides having a location in one of the most picturesque areas of Amsterdam, the hotel is also within easy walking distance of popular sights such as Dam Square, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Red Light District. But guests can also choose to see the city from the hotel's boat, which is the very same vessel Winston Churchill chose to tour Amsterdam in 1946.

The Toren

The Toren Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This romantic boutique hotel near the Anne Frank House has historical significance: It was once used as a safe house in WWII. The Toren family bought the property in 1968 and expanded it over time to include additional accommodations along the Keizersgracht canal. Today there are 38 rooms and suites ranging from smaller standard size, to more spacious deluxe size with Jacuzzi tubs and views of the garden or canal. For special occasions, guests can book one of the deluxe suites, bridal suites, or the "Garden Cottage," all which have double Jacuzzi tubs. Though each room is unique, they are decorated with the same sophisticated Toren touch combining rich hues, chandeliers, and ceiling paintings. Some have their own private terrace -- a nice perk for summer evening cocktails. For everyone else, there is a cozy bar on-site, and the hotel is affiliated with Christophe -- an acclaimed restaurant around the corner that delivers directly to guest rooms.

Ambassade Hotel

Ambassade Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Ambassade Hotel's lovely brick front is as inviting as its location in the picturesque (and convenient) Canal Ring neighorhood, across from a boat-lined canal. The hotel is tasteful and tidy, made up in classic Louis XV/XVI decor, though no area is the same in layout or appearance. The refined lobby features a shoeshine machine and umbrella collection for inclement weather. Rooms offer lovely views of the canal and cobblestone street and are adorned with rich furnishings, intricate mirrors, and carved furniture. Each room is different, and some charming suites have beamed, vaulted ceilings. The 58-room hotel features several amenities, including a Koan Float (which involves floating in saltwater in a stimuli-free capsule) and massage facilities. The breakfast room is classy with modern artwork (the hotel boasts an impressive art collection), and the lovely tables are topped with bright yellow calla lilies. Guests have access to a cozy library and computer room, and business associates can make use of the conference room, though it's in another building, as well as secreterial services and audio-visual equipment.

The Dylan Amsterdam

The Dylan Amsterdam Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Dylan is a stylish, upscale boutique centrally located in the Canal Ring. The 41 rooms are split into six different styles, ranging from lofts with cathedral ceilings to all-white rooms to Asian-inspired spaces. All rooms have high-end amenities including Bose sound systems, stocked minibars, and Zenology toiletries. A cozy lounge, two bars, a brasserie, and a lovely courtyard with heat lamps are all draws, but the real highlight here is the Michelin-star Vinkeles restaurant, which serves contemporary French cuisine in an exclusive space with just a handful of tables. While some rooms are quite small and rates are high year-round, the hotel does offer free Wi-Fi and some rooms have beautiful views overlooking the canals.

Acostar Hotel Amsterdam

Acostar Hotel Amsterdam Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Located in the Leidseplein area of Amsterdam -- a main tourist area that ultimately leads to Dam Square -- Acostar Hotel is a basic, affordable place that lacks amenities (including an elevator) despite being big on charm. Its stone front facade is aided by the quaint cobblestone street it sits on, and guests can rent bikes to visit the bevy of nearby shops, cafes, and art galleries. The lobby is a great indicator of the size of the rooms, which are smaller than those of a typical American college dorm. Each features a different relaxing color scheme, colorful artwork, and antique- or plastic-looking chairs that are more decorative than functional. Room decor varies by floor, with each espousing a different style and vibe; No two rooms are completely alike. The bathrooms are nice and contemporary with pretty iridescent tiles; some feature shower/tub combos while other have single shower stalls (these aren't closed off, which allows water to travel all over the bathroom). Free Wi-Fi is a nice perk, but overall this 30-room hotel might be best suited for a younger crowd looking for a cute but basic place to crash.

Hotel V Frederiksplein

Hotel V Frederiksplein Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This mid-range hotel is located on the outer edge of the popular Canal Ring neighborhood, just north of De Pijp. The 48 rooms are housed in four 19th-century buildings on a busy street; the charming buildings have lots of historic character, while the interior has a more eclectic and contemporary atmosphere. The lobby/lounge area has funky sculptural pieces (see the bronze bulldog and deer vases), books, magazines, and a cool 360-degree open fireplace. The front desk, as well as the business center, both feature two Apple iMac computers, and business travelers might appreciate the private meeting room. The rooms are modern with comfy bedding, flat-screen TVs, and cozy leather arm chairs, but they're quite small and lack sufficient storage space. Each has a calming monochromatic color palette, but the bare floors can make the space feel cold. Clean bathrooms are on the small side, but they have rainfall shower heads and pretty stone tiles. Some finishes throughout the hotel, such as jet-black walls, have scratches and nicks and could do with repainting.

Ibis Amsterdam Centre

Ibis Amsterdam Centre Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Ibis Amsterdam Centre is adjacent to the city's Centraal Station, and has prime access to trains, trams, and buses, making it a convenient choice for those stopping by for a quick layover. Although the building itself feels more industrial, the lobby is fresh, stylish, and inviting; it even has a food station with a coffeemaker and snacks. The hotel also features a contemporary lounge -- Bar Rendez-vous -- as well as a quaint breakfast buffet. Stairways offer great views of the train station through expansive glass windows, and a glass bridge connects the two buildings that house the 363 guest rooms. The rooms are simple, clean, and functional, but lack basic amenities such as coffeemakers and mini-fridges. Beds are comfy with fluffy white bedding, but they do, unfortunately, take up the majority of the rooms' space. Rooms are quite small, and triple rooms seem like they'd hardly accommodate that many people and luggage. Noise from the trains could also be a downside for light sleepers.

Hotel Mercure Amsterdam Arthur Frommer

Hotel Mercure Amsterdam Arthur Frommer Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Although part of a chain, Hotel Mercure Amsterdam Arthur Frommer feels more like a boutique hotel thanks to its location in a series of old buildings on the outer edge of the Canal Ring neighborhood. Refurbished in April 2008, the hotel has 93 contemporary rooms, a bar, a breakfast room, and a limited number of private parking spaces available for a fee. Sure, it lacks certain amenities of a big hotel -- such as a full restaurant, meeting facilities, or fitness center -- but the boutique feel is definitely present. Communal areas include modern fixtures that coexist with the property's historical charm. Rooms are decorated in a few different color schemes and contain flat-screen TVs and minibars, though no coffeemakers or tubs. Guests who want a peaceful setting will find this hotel ideal -- far enough away from the main tourist drag and yet still close enough to Canal Ring shops, restaurants, and bars.
