Yes, water is an amphoteric compound because it can both accept and donate a H atom.

Yes, water is amphoteric because it can act as both a base and acid (depending on what it is initially reacting with). When acting as a base, it will accept a proton to produce H3O+; when acting as an acid, it will donate a proton to produce OH-.
