“Love our stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

We stayed in the Mandarin room and we loved it! The apartment is huge with a living room, a kitchen, washing machine and a bedroom. The decoration is tastefully done.

The apartment is just next to the canal (great view from the living room) and it has a nice courtyard. It is also within walking distance to most places.

You'd feel like you're living in Amsterdam, rather than being a tourist.

Highly recommended!

Just left the Mandarin apartment at Prinsenhuis after a week's stay - work/holiday combo. Great facilities as others have said, but the best part is feeling that you are living in Amsterdam. Clear large window that you can see and hear the life of the city around you from in the background - the tinkle of all the bicycles, the clear bell of the tram at the end of the street, the smooth movements on the canal. Not that you have to, I had the curtains pulled open as well as the window when I was working at the desk! It is a superb apartment that you can make your home for the week- the location is a six-star bonus.

Great location, nice apartment. We stayed in the Mandarin. I think next time we'll try the upper apartments. We stayed for Amsterdam Pride in August 2011 so this review is late. All our sights were within walking distance or a short tram ride away. The owner is very gracious and the parade was at our feet. We felt very much at home and felt like a part of Amsterdam culture.

We stayed in the Tea Leaf apartment during the week of the Pride festival. It was a perfect choice and provides an excellent view of the canal parade without battling the crowds for a seat. The apartment itself was perfect. Lots of space, nice kitchen and private (small) balcony overlooking the gardens.

Owner/Manager was very responsive and helpful.

Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: In Amsterdam, apartments always have very steep stairs. The higher the floor the steeper the stairs...

We stayed in the Tea leaf apartment. The views over the canal, the location, the general layout were absolutley fantastic, exactly what we wanted, a romantic little apartment. Quiet, but central,picturesque and somewhere comfortable to sit and relax.
Apartment pluses;
Great layout,large fridge freezer,dishwasher,senseo coffee machine,breakfast bar,concealed washing machine in bathroom.Good sofa -bit firm. I-pod dock, a godsend.TV and DVD player.
Bathroom had underfloor heating.Shower was good,bath was excellent but did take a long time to run.Plenty of towels and toiletries in wall hung dispensers.
Bedroom tiny but plenty of wardrobe space,concealed TV in top cabinet.Really lovely tiny balcony off the bedroom with a couple of chairs and table.All very clean.
Apartment minus's ;
This is well decorated and considered, but it really does need the paintwork refreshing- urgently. lots of lovely mood lighting but this is a drawaback when trying to apply makeup- so pack a lit mirror ladies we did however find a concealed shaving mirror on the TV unit in the living room on the last day !The bed is quite firm.The only real problem we had was the bedroom which while being located at the back- so virtually no noise, is also directly above the mandarin apartments balcony.We had the badluck to be here at the same time as a group of around 4 who would return at 4.30am and sit and smoke and talk at 30 minute intervals until 6.30am, and while not being rowdy,it did sound as if they were in our room.(to be fair there is something in the handbook requesting guests not to do this).

We took the 197 bus from the airport - 4 euros each and only 30 minutes then walked to Prinsehuis.Brilliant service.

There are 2 excellent supermarkets and bakers around the corner, so eating in very much an option.

Dissapointed that gas and water were cut off on 2 seperate mornings due to work outside and we were left to work this out.Know this happens anywhere but a courtesy call may have been nice. Aldo meant we couldn't make a cuppa, or shower,but not prinsenhuis fault of course.

Would I return here - absolutley.We totally love the Prinsenhuis and are looking forward to returning next year.

Lots of positive things: free welcome wine/beer/cola, very fast internet, marvelous place, nice and helpful manager.

Rooms were equipped with all needed (and some not needed) stuff.

Definitely not a place for business travelers or people used to Radisson/Hyatt style/standard.

But for this money - perfect choice for some leisure trip to Amsterdam.

Great communication even before we left the UK, good information about the local area and how to get to the apartment. We had high expectations as we'd read good reviews online and we were not disappointed. The owner met us and explained where everything was and stressed that if we needed anything he was on hand to help.
We LOVED the apartment. It was just our taste in decor and style and we instantly felt at home. The owner supplied an ipod docking station for our entertainment. There was a bottle of wine and beer in the fridge on arrival. The location is fantastic. Situated on one of the main canals with cafes and local shops round the corner for supplies. The main shopping district is about 6 or 7 mins walk away. So all that is to offer in the city centre is minutes from your door.
The best part was that you felt like a local. The apartment felt like home. We settled in straight away. No keys on reception and breakfast buffet for us. We either made our own or were out straight away to the tempting local cafes.
The owner was quick to point out that he was updating the apartment with new beds and paint but we were thrilled with it as it was.
The only question is how soon can we book again?
