We have stayed there for 3 nights as a part of our 10 day trip in the Netherlands-Belgium trip. The house owner, Francais, was a great host since he welcomed us by all the needed information of the city and the surrounded area. The location of this place is unbeatable because it is located in the quiet area of the... More

A lovely room in a quaint (but not quiet) neighborhood on a canal surrounded by to die for shopping and dining options to suit every taste and budget. An easy 15 minute walk to the train station, but a lifetime away from all things tacky, touristy and stereotypical about Amsterdam. I don't want to sound like a peeping tom, but... More

My husband and I spent our last 2 nights of a 6 week holiday in late October at the Posthoorn. Francois was the consumate host, knowledgeable, charming. Waking up to the view of the sunrise over the Noordemarkt prepared us for wonderful times in Amsterdam. Excellent, can't wait to return.

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... More

My husband and I with our teenage daughters stayed here in October for 2 nights whilst traveling back to Australia from the UK. I had poured over the internet looking for accomodation in Amsterdam and booked the Posthoorn as I wanted to stay in a canal house. I agree with all the other reviews. This is an excellent location. 5... More

The B&B is very well located in the city center and closed to the railway station. I highly recommend this place and give an advice to any person interested ; make your... More

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
