We stayed in the Canal View room which was lovely. We were greeted by Francois who was very warm and accommodating. He began by telling us the history of the house and then showed us on a map the different places to visit in Amsterdam and a few tips. The room was very clean and the bed was extra comfy (memory foam mattress and pillows!). The fridge was stocked with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks which was a nice touch. The bathroom was also nice and the shower was powerful. If you are one for watching TV in the morning or in bed then you will be pleased to hear that most of the channels are in English (including BBC1 and 2). Made use of the free wifi which was great. Francois asked what time we would like breakfast the following morning and it was brought into our room promptly. The breakfast was delicious and consisted of boiled eggs, ham, turkey and cheese slices. There was also different bread, pastries and fruits as well as orange juice. The location is excellent and its very near to everything. It's about a 10 minute walk to Dam Square and about 15 mins walk from Central Station. It's also in a very quiet part so there was not much noise at night. If you get time and would like a nice meal I would recommend Brasserie Vlaming which is on the same street as the Posthoorn. It's about 5 mins down the road. Overall a lovely place to stay and will definitely be recommending to others. Hope to visit again in the future.
