Max Brown Canal District is situated in three monumental Amsterdam canal houses with an amazing 300-year old facade, at the corner of Amsterdam’s most famous canals, the Herengracht & the Brouwersgracht. ...More The three canal houses in which Max Brown is located have seen a great amount of different owners and users over the three centuries of their existence. Now it’s time for our guests of Max Brown to call these beautiful canal houses their home away from home in Amsterdam. Less

A taxi would be around 40-45 euro (25 minutes). There is a direct train going from Schiphol to Amsterdam Central for €5 per person (15 minutes) and a 7 minute walk to the hotel.
