My wife and I recently stayed in the Hidden Church Room. Francios the owner is the most helpful person - he greated us with a smile and and spent time to help us navigate the area. The room itself is on the lower ground floor with its own front door and steps directly onto the street. To be fair it was pretty noisy - it has all original windows which are lovely - but not great at providing sound proofing! I packed ear plugs - would suggest you do the same. The room is a good size and includes a small kitchenette. The bathroom had a modern functional shower which did the job.
The breakfast was great - delivered at a time convenient to you - fresh baked goods, eggs, cheese etc. A good start to the day.
The location is excellent - far enough away from the red light area and close enough to the nine lanes.
I would definatley stay here again.
- 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
