Well located in a charming part of Amsterdam, the Posthoorn provides a convenient, clean and comfortable home base from which to explore the city. My husband and I stayed in the Canal Room, where we especially enjoyed the view of the canal and that of the residents of Amsterdam bicycling, strolling or walking past our large windows. We also loved being in the Jordaan, close to everything of interest to us but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the busier tourist centers. Although the room faces the street, there are relatively few cars driven in Amsterdam, so we had no exhaust fumes or engine noises to contend with. In addition, day shades provide both light and privacy. While the room was most pleasant, the very best part of our stay at the Posthoorn was the hospitality extended by Francois, the owner, who puts heart and soul in making sure that guests are comfortable, informed and well nourished before heading out to explore the city in the morning. His breakfasts were beautifully presented and delivered promptly at the time we had arranged the night before. We enjoyed talking with him very much as he shared information about city attractions, its history and current events--as a private tour guide might do. It is clear that Francois loves Amsterdam and hopes that those who stay at the Posthoorn will feel the same way about it as they discover all that it has to offer. Were we to plan another trip to Amsterdam, we would definitely stay at the Posthoorn again for the warm welcome we received, the very comforable room, the excellent location and Francois's desire to make our visit both enjoyable and memorable. Thank you to Francois for sharing his historic home and his knowledge of and passion for Amsterdam with us! This is the kind of experience that is difficult to have at even the best of hotels.
