“Perfect Accommodation for Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were really pleased with our decision to stay at PHPS&G. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood next to Vondelpark and close enough to the city center to give you the best of both worlds. We had the superior suite, which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful with all our questions and the breakfast was the best we had in Europe. They even helped us with coordinating taxi to the airport with another guest to save costs! Highly recommended!

The owners were very nice. They were very responsive during the reservation process and provided maps and instructions to use when ewe arrived. We stayed in the private suite with a garden terrace. However, just a few things we felt needed to be mentioned:
The bathroom light over the sink was broken and there were no other mirrors in the other area which made it difficult to put on my makeup. The robe had a broken loop on one side and the other loop was missing. The robe felt rough like it needed fabric softener. The terrace was not clean and therefore was not very inviting so we did not sit out there at all. The bed was a little to firm and the sleep was not comfortable.

Despite this we had a wonderful stay! The neighborhood was very pleasant and beautiful. We felt safe, it was convenient to everything especially trams and museums.

Hendriklaan, Owner at Prince Henry, Private Suites and Gardens, responded to this review, 28 May 2014
This is the worst rating we have had in years, so it seems a good idea to respond to it.
We knew that these guests were not happy, so we wrote them an e-mail on the 18th of May to which they did not respond. They rather chose to respond in public through this review.
They also took all the little soaps and shampoos, so we knew they at least liked these .
We reproduce the letter to them here. Incidentally, the honeymoon couple of the review that came before this one stayed in the same suite.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. ….,
I heard from Magda that you had quite a lot of points where you were unhappy about our place.
What a pity I didn’t know this at all; we could have talked about it.
I would like to answer your points as I have understood them from Magda if that is okay with you.
1. She mentioned you did not sleep well as you found the bed too hard. We bought beds that came out on top in a big survey from our consumer society. It is actually the first time we hear about this. The sad thing is that we could have solved this problem for you right away because we have extra soft top mattresses for our sofa beds that we could easily have given to you.
2. I understood that you didn’t like the bathrobes. Indeed they are from IKEA. Actually I bought expensive ones from a professional supplier when we started , but we find that the IKEA bathrobes stay nicer and softer over time than the other ones.
3. The next point I think was about the garden; you thought it was not entirely clean? It is a garden in a city and although I check it every day several times there are always pieces of paper or plastic blown in by the wind. I am sorry to hear it bothered you though.
4. The lamp over the washbasin. Yes, that was annoying of course. We did apologize that we were not able to fix it ourselves and we are very sorry it was such a bother for you.
I hope that I was able to take some of your irritation away.
Thank you for staying with us and we hope these points have not spoiled your little holiday in Amsterdam.
Best regards,
Petra van Niftrik & Joop Klinkhamer

The 2nd time at Prince Henry Private Suites was perfect again.
I believe you won´t get bigger and cleaner rooms in Amsterdam anyway.
The hotel is located very good, next to Vondelpark and also next to Center of Amsterdam.

The Owners are very helpful, if you need something you will have it accordingly.

If you go to Amsterdam you have to stay at Pronce Henry Private Suites, you will definetely love it.

Many Thanks to Joop and Petra.
Looking forward to my next years Visit at this great Place.

We stayed here for four nights in the loft suite. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, and quiet. It is a very short walk to the tram which gives you easy access to the whole city. The owners are wonderful and offer breakfast in the morning. We are gluten free and they were very accommodating. Petra is the co-owner/chef that makes breakfast. She also made gluten free treats in the afternoon for us. Her cooking is so good. Beverages are always available in a cooled tray on the entry level. I would highly recommend staying here if you visit Amsterdam.

My daughter and I stayed at the Prince Henry for a week last August while she was getting settled in to a graduate program at UvA. The experience was all we could have asked for -- and more. From the gracious and helpful welcome from Joop, the spacious and comfortable accommodations (we stayed on the 1st floor and had a lovely private fenced in garden), the delicious breakfasts (made to order and delivered to our room at the time we prescribed), the convenient, peaceful location and the evening snacks (declicious) - it was all lovely. Petra and Joop were very helpful in giving us advice on where to dine, shop, call a taxi and catch public transportation (a short walk from the B&B). Petra even packed me a delicious "take-away" breakfast for my very early morning plane back to the U.S.. I would recommend them highly to anyone -- especially if this is your first stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: We loved the first floor room with the private garden -- it gave us extra space and a "green&qu...
