We (2 adults and a 3 year old) have just come back from a 3 night stay at The Posthoom - it was fantastic! Beautiful room, immaculately clean and fabulous breakfast. Francois was extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect - not too far from any of the 'attractions' but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet. A wonderful stay in Amsterdam and we will definitely be back!

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. Francois was very, very welcoming and exceptionally helpful with information about the city, maps, directions, restaurant suggestions and transport back to the airport. The canal house is charming and in the perfect location for exploring the Anne Frank house, the Jordaan district, the nine streets area, and the flower market. It was also a very easy tram ride to the Van Gogh museum. We stayed in the Hidden Church room, which was very comfortable (great bed and pillows) and clean. Francois brought us a lovely breakfast each morning in the room. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Amsterdam. Thank you.

My husband and I had a great stay in Amsterdam.
The Posthoorn was easy to find by foot from the station.
The location was brilliant, just far enough out of the maddening crowd, but all with walking distance.
The hidden church room was great and we really felt like we were on holiday.
Great breakfast, thanks Francois.

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.
