“5 Star B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We have spent time in some of the best hotels & B&B's in the US & Europe. We can not say enough good things about Petra & Joop & their home. Unless it were in a houseboat on the Herengraacht, we would not consider staying anywhere else.The executive garden apartment is spacious & well appointed. Although the weather did not allow us to use the garden seating area, it did give one the sense of much more space.

The neighborhood is a wonderful collection of late 1800's homes & apartments, close to the #2 tram which will quickly get you downtown & the Vondelpark if you want to get your exercise & walk to the museums. We walked to the Jordan in less than 1 hr. When in Amsterdam....

There are good restaurants nearby, such as Bond, Cafe Grand Willempark, or Blauw. Why stay in downtown Amsterdam?

But the real reason for staying in a B&B is to be closer to the people. You will not find & more caring, friendly, or entertaining family than Petra & Joop. Silk plants & flowers? We had fresh tulips, the reason we went to Holland in April!

We have 2 wishes: 1.) the Petra & Joop continue to receive the Tripadvisor Travellers Choice award which they deserve: 2.) that they open up a southern branch in France.

We stayed in the loft in April and we couldn't have had a better stay. The room was perfect and they had thought of everything you could possibly need. Petra was a great hostess and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious too!

My husband and I have just returned from the Prince Henry and are very happy that we stayed there. It was clean & comfortable with a good bathroom, it was everything that we needed. It was a little further out than was ideal so we used trams for travel.

We stayed in the garden suite for 4 nights on a recent trip. This accommodation was the highlight of our all the places we stayed. Very friendly and helpful owners. Spacious and relaxing room and brilliant bathroom. The breakfast was superb indeed. As for location, there are some excellent restaurants to choose from within a 5-10min easy stroll from here. Tram very close and the walk through the Vondelpark into the city is a delight and we think a better option to start and end the day exploring Amsterdam. We would not hesitate to recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect, discreet, professional, high-quality service. Breakfast and drinks spot on. Warm welcome from owners, Joop and Petra. High standard and tasteful decor. Spacious, comfortable room with excellent facilities. Perfect cross between up-market self-catering apartment, elite Bed & Breakfast, and mid-range hotel, representing excellent value for money. Fantastic elegant residence in excellent attractive residential location, not far from the centre of town. Walking distance of the Van Gogh Museum, Riks Museum and Leidesplein - easy reach of the RAI. Very close to regular, convenient, tram connection to town centre & main railway station. Can't recommend highly enough. Owners are perfect hosts, providing useful information and local knowledge on what to do, where to go and where to eat.

We stayed two nights here and enjoyed it very much. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood but is convenient to the tram which allows you to go anywhere in Amsterdam. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and well presented. We would return here if we ever return to Amsterdam.

Hendriklaan, Owner at Prince Henry, Private Suites and Gardens, responded to this review, April 19, 2012
This guest has been staying a number of times in the suite qualified by other visitors as 'reasonably good', and we thank him for his review which is based on several visits. We already communicated to the reviewer of 'reasonably good etc.' that there IS floor heating, but maybe the system is a tad complicated. However, what kept intriguing us was the matter of the problematic i-Pod connection. Turns out that these machines have some sort of universal connection to provide for the different types of i-pod launched by Apple and that the owners of the i-pad get a little gizmo with their machine that would fit on this adapter. In order to assist our customers we will now command a truckload of the gizmo's (:- so that they can indeed use their i-phone and i-pod on our machines, because that is what they were made for.

This is just a perfect place to stay. The room was bigger than expected, so was the bathroom. Our room had a small patio with a table and chairs which was perfect for the kids to run around. I pay a lot of attention to details when it comes to hotels and I have to say our room was extremely clean, well decorated, the beds were very comfortable and the ipod docking station is very thoughtful! The breakfast was plenty and delicious. We had to leave early in the morning and Petra not only made our breakfast earlier than usual, but she also packed food for us to take. Very nice hosts. I would not stay anywhere else!
