My wife and are are partial to small hotels and B&B's , and in the Posthoorn , we came upon a gem !
The building is wonderfully situated , within walking distance of more attractions than our 5 day stay could encompass ; and the walks themselves soon became a major attraction for us . What a marvellous area !
Our room (Canal View) was a happy choice ... clean , comfortable , and our window on the city !
Francois is the perfect host . He is aware of the history of the city , and particularly of the very interesting history of the building itself . He is attentive , thoughtful , shares good advice on where to go and what to do , and adds little things (complimentary wine , drinks , coffee , tea) and "room service" breakfasts , which add to your experience and your comfort .
We've stayed in many B&B's , and had many fine experiences , but none better than the Posthoorn . Unless you like to be in large (and more luxurious) hotels , or in the more obvious tourist areas , you won't find better
