We stayed at the Posthoorn for 3 nights in late October. The owner/operator, Francois, was an outstanding and knowledgeable host: available when needed and helpful with recommendations (especially with restaurants, local markets and directions) without hovering whatsover. We arrived in Amsterdam about 11am and Francois pre-arranged and most graciously agreed to us dropping off our bags so we could sightsee prior to checking in. Emails/communication when booking was easy and fast.
We stayed in the canal view room which was located on the 1st floor. The room had a nice view of the canal, but did have a small amount of street noise. The room had a small in-room kitchen with coffee and tea service. The fridge was stocked with free beer, wine, soda and water.
The daily morning breakfasts were hearty and delicious. They typically consisted of fresh juice, meats and cheeses, soft boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, and pasties/breads.
We loved the location and neighborhood for the 3 night stay and would definitely stay here again if we ever make it back to Amsterdam.
- 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
