Firstly Monnikendam is worth a visit for its own sake. It is a picture postcard small town (or large village) with cobbled streets, old houses, canals and locks. It has a Disney feel to someone from the UK, as everything is clean and well cared for (I mean everything, every house, street sign, cafe, bollard etc). There are cafes, shops... More

We chose the Posthoorn to celebrate my 65th birthday. With children and partners, we had a party of 8 and occupied 4 of the hotels 6 rooms. The rooms, especially the 2 suites, were all different and well appointed. We had booked well in advance and all our requests, including dietary requirements, were met. Starting with a glass of champagne... More

Only 30minute bus journey from Amsterdam, this lovely village and beautiful street made us question why we would want to go into Amsterdam at all. After finishing a conference in Holland, my wife flew in to celebrate our wedding Anniversary. We got a taxi from the airport - don't do this - over priced and you will be looking at... More

Monnikendam is a charming village close to Amsterdam. And Hotel Posthoorn is a gem within the heart of the town. Only a few rooms, individually decorated. You may find them a little kitchy with lots of stuff standing around, but feel comfortable anyways once you drown in dozends of pillows. And the greatest thing about Posthoorn is located on the...

My boyfriend took me away for a surprise 2 night stay for my 30th birthday. I was SO impressed with this hotel. We arrived on a Monday - we had already been told the restaurant would be closed so it wasn't a surprise to us but we had a lovely meal on the harbour anyway so it was no bother.... More

Visited in august in a suite. Not too bad rooms. But the walls need repainting and a lightbulb didnt work. Toilet next to the shower isnt optimal. The royal breakfast was pretty damn basic with no fruit or cerial what so ever. Also dont expect any service on monday evenings because there isnt a single member of staff in the... More

I picked the Posthoorn for its fine dining arrangment when I wanted to take my boyfriend on a surprise weekend for his birthday. The staff were all adorable and helpful, the food was an excellent surprise (we both work in a 2Michelin star restaurant but the cooking was pretty much just perfect) and the bedroom was cosy, and very prettily...

According to website pictures - this hotel should have been in the top line of boutique hotels and its ambiance. This is the hotel and restaurant. Breakfest was very very nice, we didn't have dinner only because we wanted to spend less but judging by breakfest and the dinner menu - dinner would have been awesome. I think most of... More

The hotel was absolutely beautiful. It was small but very charming. We stayed in the sistermans suite, which was a spatious room with a very nice big bathroom with huge bad and seperate shower. We had the romantic arrangement so they decorated the room with candles. We had dinner there: a real joy!! Great food, nice complimentary wines : really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is no surprise that the Dutch royal family appreciates the truly unforgettable pampering to be had at the Posthoorn – a unique place, where history and pure indulgence have gone hand in hand since the Napoleonic Era. The Posthoorn cannot be categorized, but excels at offering a melting pot of different styles, with luxury, quality and cordiality as guiding principles. ... more   less
