Francois was a very generous host: With assistance, with recommendations, and breakfast with fresh bread every day was a great way to wake up. We'd always end up with a extra croissant or yogurt to put in our bag for later. The room was immaculate every day, very romantic, and we loved the location. We were in Amsterdam for King's Day, and as it turned out, we were in the center of all the activity. Still, it wasn't too much to sleep through, or take breaks from, as our room in the back of the house was quiet. If you'd like to stay in one of the most romantic, authentic parts of the city, and be away from the tourist center, this is a great spot for you. And be sure to walk at night...you may be the only ones on the canal!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Housed within the fine walls of a listed historical 17th century canal house on one of Amsterdam's most picturesque canals in the heart of the city - the Prinsengracht - part of the UNESCO World Heritage, The Posthoorn Bed and Breakfast features three charming rooms which offer guests four-star luxury whilst staying in the Jordaan district. The Canal View Room, Patio Room and Hidden Church Room ooze opulent and stylish character within the pleasant atmosphere of this contemporary bed and breakfast flawlessly disguised in the old-fashioned exterior of this canal house. The history behind this interesting building dates back to 1578, during which time Catholics were refused to visit their churches so several hidden churches were built in private houses. Around 1650, one was built in the basement of what stands as The Posthoon today and if you wish the owner will be pleased to tell you the history of the house. The elegant decor of The Posthoorn is boasted throughout each and every room. The livingspaces feature a flat-screen cable TV, en-suite bathroom with under-floor heating, comfortable sofas, free wireless internet. In each room you will find a kitchenette including coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator complete with white wine, beer, orange juice, milk and mineral water. Full continental breakfast including freshly baked bread and croissants is served to guests in their room each morning. Staff aim to make guests' stay at the Posthoorn memorable. ... more less
