This could be the only hotel in the world where you have breakfast looking at canals while people pass by. Francois, the owner, is a gentleman who makes you feel welcome, at ease, brings fantastic breakfast every morning to your room, provides historic narratives about the house (formerly a church), gives tips about the best in Amsterdam etc etc etc....

located in almost perfect location.The owner Francois could not have been more helpful.Everything written about this place is true.The canal view room we had may be a little bothersome for some people because of street noise,although in our case it didn't bother us(mostly people walking and talking).We walked to almost every area from the Posthoorn.The museum district we cabbed but...

My mom, sister, nephew and I stayed here during our European trip. Francois was a gracious host and was very helpful and accommodating during our stay. He made restaurant reservations and gave us suggestions as to where we should visit and where to eat nightly. All his suggestions were excellent choices and wonderful recommendations. It is perfectly located in the... More

We had a great stay at Posthoorn. Perfect location, could not have been better. We had the canal view room which provided lots of people watching and beautiful city scenery. Francois was a gracious host and provided wonderful dinner recommendations along with reservations if needed. He also helped with information and directions for sight seeing as well as arranging transportation... More

This is a beautiful place to stay in a great location. But its much more than that. Your host François is attentive and welcoming. His local knowledge massively enhanced our short stay. He really couldn't have done any more for us. The room was beautifully decorated with a superbly comfortable bed. Breakfast was fresh, tasty and filling. We'll definitely be... More

Francois has a gem of a property on a pretty canal in a very trendy and well located area. Restaurants and markets surround the property. Accommodation in an historic building is comfortable with good safety. Walking distance to the desirable attractions and neighbourhoods or hire a bike from around the corner like we did. Tariff is very reasonable and includes... More

From the moment we arrived, Francois ensured that we were comfortable and completely satisfied with our stay. He provided an orientation to Amsterdam along with walking directions to the important sites and restaurants. Daily breakfast was great with fresh pastries, croissants, eggs, meat, cheese, yogurt and fresh fruit. The room was a good size, clean and very well maintained but... More

We (2 adults and a 3 year old) have just come back from a 3 night stay at The Posthoom - it was fantastic! Beautiful room, immaculately clean and fabulous breakfast. Francois was extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect - not too far from any of the 'attractions' but far enough away to enjoy... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. Francois was very, very welcoming and exceptionally helpful with information about the city, maps, directions, restaurant suggestions and transport back to the airport. The canal house is charming and in the perfect location for exploring the Anne Frank house, the Jordaan district, the nine streets area, and the flower market. It... More
