This a great base from which to explore. It is situated near to the Anne frank house and much more. The B &B is in a quiet pretty area. We stayed in the patio room as there were 5 of us (2 adults and our 3 children). We were really pleased to stay in one room together to keep to our budget. Unfortunately, there is no view from this room, but as we did not spend much time in the room, it didnt really matter. However, i did sometimes wish I could look out at the beautiful canal right next to us. The other 2 rooms probably do have a view though.
The website stated free juice, beers and white wine in the fridge. I felt quite excited about this, but actually, there is a charge for the beers. There is no wine at all, just champagne at €40 euros a bottle. There is a carton of juice and a carton of milk for cups of tea/coffee. You get very tasty orange juice with each breakfast anyway, but I think this was a little misleading. The breakfasts were very nice, and Francois ammended the breakfasts to suit us one morning when we needed to make an early start for a trip.
Francios gave us recommendations of restuarants, and we visited a couple of them which were great. There are some lovely places to eat nearby and some great bars. He was very helpful and always on hand if needed. Great break, albeit a little expensive.
- 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
