Stayed 3 nights in the patio room. Nice large room, brilliant shower, comfortable and clean! Francois is also an amazing host. Location is perfect, lovely quiet area and a pretty walk in to central. Breakfast served in the room at a time convenient to you which is a great start to they day. Would definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed here in late 2014 and loved it (you can see my previous review if interested). It hasn't changed! It's like a luxury b&b so if you are looking for a swanky, grand, palatial hotel don't come here. What you do get is attention to detail from host, Francois, that is second to none, including a first rate breakfast brought to your room. It's also surprisingly quiet at night - we had no trouble sleeping. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars in the surrounding area, very little down-market tourist tat places and that fantastic canal city feel right on your doorstep.
You can walk to most places from here but we highly recommend the hop-on/hop-off 24 hour canal boat cruise pass - you can pick one up just a few hundred yards down Prinsengracht. It's the best way to travel in Amsterdam.
Francois has loads of recommendations for eating out, is a general mine of information and , most importantly, is a thoroughly nice bloke running a really fine hotel.
We'll be back in a couple of years, we just love this place and Amsterdam. Bravo Francois!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Posthoorn. The location is excellent- central enough to be an easy walk from the train station and to most sites of interest but also on a quiet street near the Jordaan area. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable. Francois is a perfect host. From the moment we arrived he was welcoming and helpful, allowing us to drop off our bags and giving us recommendations on how to spend a few hours since we arrived earlier than our room was ready. He brought a delicious breakfast to our room each morning, which was a perfect way to start each day. We did not want to leave this place. If you are thinking about staying here, I encourage you to do it- you will be so glad you did!

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.

Room Tip: Book ahead to anne frank and museums to avoid queues.

Amsterdam is an amazing city with so much to see and do. Its canals and historic buildings are absolutely beautiful. We spent 3 nights at the Posthoorn and had a very comfortable stay. Our room had large windows overlooking the cobblestone street and the canal. It was close to many restaurants, cafes, and not far from the Anne Frank House, but still very quiet. Francois made some excellent recommendations for places to eat and made reservations for us. He brings your breakfast to your room at the time you request. Fresh croissants and baguettes, assorted fresh fruits, a perfectly soft cooked soft boiled egg, fresh orange juice. My only negative is that I prefer not to eat in my room with suitcases, unmade bed, etc. But the room had a little table right next to the window and we could watch the world go by as we breakfasted. Be aware that there is a small surcharge if you pay for your room with a credit card. The B & B is about a 15 minute walk to the train station. It's close to the Nine Streets and Jordaan, both of which have lots of great little shops and many bars, restaurants, and cafes. We had a fabulous Thai dinner at Ko-Chang. Jansz, part of the Pulitzer hotel, has a lovely restaurant that features continental cuisine, and Prego was also nearby and had a nice selection of European, Italian and Mediteranean choices. All are within easy walking distance of the Posthoorn. We were unable to book a time for the Anne Frank House and everytime we walked past, even late in the evening, there were still long lines waiting to get in.
Make sure you try to book your entry when you book your room.
Altogether a great long weekend in Amsterdam.
