“Incredible service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I stayed here a few nights with my family and was so impressed by the attentive service. The hotel was beautiful and conveniently located, really such a perfect find and way to spend the vacation. The staff also gave great restaurant and activity recommendations in the area.

This hotel is a must for all travellers. Central, well equipped, very comfortable, with the most charming host, Francois. The room has a kitchenette which allows guests to make snacks and drinks. Nothing is too much trouble and we enjoyed 4 days of walks, museum visits and great food. Will be returning.

Room Tip: Back room was quiet and well provided.

My wife and I recently stayed in the Hidden Church Room. Francios the owner is the most helpful person - he greated us with a smile and and spent time to help us navigate the area. The room itself is on the lower ground floor with its own front door and steps directly onto the street. To be fair it was pretty noisy - it has all original windows which are lovely - but not great at providing sound proofing! I packed ear plugs - would suggest you do the same. The room is a good size and includes a small kitchenette. The bathroom had a modern functional shower which did the job.
The breakfast was great - delivered at a time convenient to you - fresh baked goods, eggs, cheese etc. A good start to the day.
The location is excellent - far enough away from the red light area and close enough to the nine lanes.
I would definatley stay here again.

What more can be said about this great B&B! We booked the canal view room for 3 nights in the beginning of February. The house is situated in the perfect area. Anne frank house, the Winkel for the best apple pie, the cheese museum, many great pubs/restaurants. Francois was a great and helpful host. The breakfasts he serves were so good and filling. We had an amazing time in Amsterdam, but when we return, it will be in the summer months, to see how beautiful the city is when it's in full bloom. We will defiantly stay here again.

In May 2013 my sister and I stayed here in the Canal View room for 5 nights. You never forget where you are...the canal, the houseboats, the bicycles, the view of the traditional buildings across the way. I concur with all the wonderful things that have been said in previous reviews. The room was small but that is to be expected in a canal house. The host, Francois, could not have been more helpful, both prior to our arrival and after we were there. The location was excellent with many restaurants nearby and easily walkable from the train station. Highly recommended.

We booked the Canal View room for 4 nights. We always attempt to stay at B & B's that are as good or better than home. This is it! We highly recommend The Posthoorn. Everything we would say about our stay, has been said already. We genuinely echo all the positives! We had just the most comfortable perfect stay. Francois, your commitment to making your guests feel so welcome made our stay and first visit to Amsterdam just so memorable. Thank you.

The lovely renovated B&B in one of the charming historic buildings along the Prinsengracht is located in the middle of one of the most popular parts of the city called Jordaan with many nice restaurants just around the corner. You feel immediately very welcome as your host takes his time to explain you the history of the building, discuss your plans for the next days and recommends some must do's and as well a variety of good restaurants in walking distance. The recommendations turned out to be really perfect. We had the Patio room that is rather big and fully equipped with a modern bathroom and a small kitchen. We got a rich breakfast along with unlimited tea and coffee. We can highly recommend the Posthoorn and will for sure be back with our next visit to Amsterdam.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Housed within the fine walls of a listed historical 17th century canal house on one of Amsterdam's most picturesque canals in the heart of the city - the Prinsengracht - part of the UNESCO World Heritage, The Posthoorn Bed and Breakfast features three charming rooms which offer guests four-star luxury whilst staying in the Jordaan district. The Canal View Room, Patio Room and Hidden Church Room ooze opulent and stylish character within the pleasant atmosphere of this contemporary bed and breakfast flawlessly disguised in the old-fashioned exterior of this canal house. The history behind this interesting building dates back to 1578, during which time Catholics were refused to visit their churches so several hidden churches were built in private houses. Around 1650, one was built in the basement of what stands as The Posthoon today and if you wish the owner will be pleased to tell you the history of the house. The elegant decor of The Posthoorn is boasted throughout each and every room. The livingspaces feature a flat-screen cable TV, en-suite bathroom with under-floor heating, comfortable sofas, free wireless internet. In each room you will find a kitchenette including coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator complete with white wine, beer, orange juice, milk and mineral water.
