“a great place to settle down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

We (parents and two teenagers) stayed at Prince Henry two days in december. Prince Henry Suites and Gardens is located in the most prestigious area of Amsterdam next to the Vondelpark with all kinds of trendy shops and excellent restaurants at close distance. The important musea are also within walking distance as is the old city centre. It is also very easy to take a street car. In front of the beautifull building of Prince Henry it is easy to find a safe parking space for your car. Reception was very friendly and we rented both suites on the ground floor. The suites are nicely furnished with excellent beds and everything you need, privacy and quiet. The bathrooms are gorgeous and in spring, summer and fall it must be great to enjoy the gardens of the two suites.
Breakfast was delicious and atractively presented. You have the feeling of having your own apartment in Amsterdam. We will certainly be back!

Fellow North Americans, forget your preconceived ideas about B&B's.
My partner and I spent 6 days in Amsterdam in September. I could not esily find a hotel online as there was a major conference in the city. Those available had very small rooms and many rated poorly in terms of street noise.
On a whim, I looked at B&B's and booked Prince Henry for the 6 nights. We were prepared for the gap between online photos and reality. But photos could not capture the serene, spacious, high-ceilinged rooms with the light filtering through the sheers. Our space in this early 1900's building had all the comforts yet was so cosmopolitan.
The breakfasts, which were placed on a shelf outside our door at a prearranged time, were scrumptious and prepared by our hostess, Petra, who has earned a name for herself in culinary circles. Also, we had the use of a kitchen down a short hall.
Joop, our inimitable host, was so willing to entertain all our questions. Form our location we could walk or tram to the attractions, or shop and stroll in the charming neighbourhood.

Thanks Petra and Joop!

The location? The atmosphere? The wonderful couple that run it and that show real warmth when you allow them to, yet keep their distance if needed? Located in one of the real upmarket neighbourhoods in the city, it is very close to both tram and park (ideal for a stroll or a morning run!), but also well located for exploration by bike or scooter. The room I had at ground floor was spacious, very well designed and had real character. The breakfast was fantastic, as was the espresso machine in the room. With better weather, the private terrace in front of the room would have been a real benefit. Petra and Joop, it has been a great pleasure and, hopefully, you'll see me back soon!

Room Tip: Ground floor, although still requiring you to negotiate a few steps, is ideal if you have lots of lu...

I stayed at the prince Henry suites for 6 nights while attending a conference at the RIA. The front studio apartment was immaculately clean and had excellent facilities including free wi-fi and large flat screen TV. There was a small garden area for my personal use and free use of a kitchen. Petra, was very friendly and made the most delicious breakfasts.
The location was ideal for Tram 2 into town (10 min) via the Museum district (5 min). The area around Vondel Park is very quiet and family focused, but the park itself is a un-discovered real gem in Amsterdam. It is full of local people cycling, walking, eating and drinking at cafes, a really safe and green part of the city. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here and thanks to Petra for making it extremely relaxing during a very busy conference!

By far the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Beautiful neighborhood (behind the Vondelpark), upscale interior and great service by the lovely owners.
Breakfast was waiting outside our door in the morning. Great quality and very elegantly presented.
We highly recommend this B&B!

As I understand it, I was the first guest to be welcomed into the Loft, Prince Henry's newest offering. After four days, I did not want to leave! The space is airy and high-ceilinged, with a gorgeous antique armoire, tall windows overlooking the trees and elegant, surrounding neighborhood, large skylight, private shower/sink, and separate kitchenette (with fridge and Dolce Gusto machine)--especially appreciated, since I did not want to be eating out every day of my sojourn. (Also, since it was raining almost the whole time, I did not miss the pleasures of the gardens attached to the more expensive suites below!) As others have noted, the Vondelpark is a stone's throw away, and great for strolling in no matter the weather. Breakfasts were invariably delicious. And let me second (or twenty-second!) what others have also written about Petra and Joop, Prince Henry's owners: they are delightful people--as present as you could wish, generous-hearted and helpful but never intrusive. Come and see for yourself!
