“Exquisite suites; wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We planned a three night stay at the Suites for our family of three -- booking both suites. Our 19 year old daughter was on her way to study at Oxford for the summer and we thought a family stay in Amsterdam would make a nice pre-study experience. Our stay far exceeded our expectations, and our wonderful hosts provided personal service that made it so enjoyable, plus saved the day at the end of the trip when we inadvertently left our passports in the room safe. First, the exquisite accommodations: our daughter loved the Regent Suite and spent many evening hours reading at the chair in front of the window overlooking the beautiful canal and observing neighborhood life. We loved the Patrician Suite with such beautiful furnishings and a bathroom that was super luxurious. The breakfasts were a treat as well. Robin and Youri were wonderful hosts and helped us with tickets and restaurants plus made us feel more like friends or houseguests than visitors. We would have given this hotel a wonderful review anyway but what happened at the end of our trip was beyond what we would have expected at a five star luxury hotel! On our train trip from Amsterdam we realized we had left our passports locked in the room safe. We needed to go back and get them but were short on time as we had three different trains to take to reach Oxford, England that night. We e-mailed Youri from the train, and he retrieved the passports and met us at the Amsterdam station so that we could quickly get back on our way. He also brought us some Dutch treats for our travels. I cannot tell you how much that meant at a stressful time! We arrived at our destination that night, a little late, but in time for my daughter to start her program the next day. To be sure, we will be back to stay at the Herengracht Suites again.

Room Tip: Both suites are beautiful; the Patrician Suite is larger and has a bigger bathroom -- the Regent Sui...

What a wonderful place to stay! The Patrician Suite is grand, luxurious and sumptuous with divine soft furnishings, hand selected furniture and unique paint finishes. The feel is amazing and can easily transport one into holiday mode, if not another era. The view is wonderful over a tree lined street and wide canal throught huge windows with flowering window boxes and breaksfast is delivered with a smile each morning. Robin and Youri are very friendly, helpful and kind and deliver personalised service to make your stay memorable. Their suggestions for restaurants were spot on and I congratulate them on providing such a beautiful place to stay. It is in a really nice area, in the 9 Streets ares and close to everything. I have also stayed in the Regent Suite which provides a warm, intimate and cosy feel, still with a great canal view and the added value of a private deck, which, when I was there, had cascading jasmine in full bloom. I thoroughly enjoyed my sojourn in Amsterdam and will definitely return to Herengracht Suites.

This property is indescribable in its attention to detail! Robin and Youri (owners) do a fantastic job creating an authentic and luxurious experience for each of their guests. They personalize everything, from helping you with tickets, reservations, and transport to bringing your favorite tea. Each room has a stocked mini-fridge (non-alcoholic beverages) that also had space for cheese and little snacks we bought in town. They even provided us with gluten-free breakfast breads to suit a food allergy. The suites are ideally situated in the Western Canal Ring to walk or bike anywhere in the city within mere minutes. The neighborhood is quiet enough for relaxation, but alive enough to people and boat-watch from your canalside window. Amsterdam won us over in large part because of this accommodation, and we plan on coming back soon. My biggest fear is that they will be booked when we want to return!

Room Tip: We had the top floor (smaller room and queen bed), which was delightful because of the private terra...

The Herengracht Suites is outstanding in every way! Between the hosts (Robin and Yuri), our gorgeous Patrician Suite, scenic Nine Streets area location, delicious breakfast, stunning house, wonderful touches such as candles glowing in our suite at bedtime, we enjoyed the most memorable weekend in Amsterdam!

I had an absolutely amazing stay at the Herengracht Suites in Amsterdam and I don't think I could honestly have asked for anything more. Right from the minute we walked through the door Robin made us feel right at home. He was always very friendly, informative, helpful and incredibly attentive. Within five minutes of arriving Robin had us comfortably sat in the property's beautiful sitting room, tea and sparkling water in hand, briefing us on everything amazing we can experience in Amsterdam.

Every detail in the Herengracht suites has been attended to and honestly we wanted for nothing. The room was immaculate and the entire property exuded class and beauty while maintaining a very welcoming homely feel. The property in in a great location but honestly we often didn't venture out because we never wanted to leave the room and when we did we were always greeted upon our return by a friendly smile from Robin and a plate of freshly baked stroopwaffle at the end of our bed (and trust me, they are delicious).

If you are on business, just visiting Amsterdam or particularly of you are having a romantic weekend away then I would definitely recommend the Herengracht Suits. It is beautiful, relaxing, great value considering the luxury on offer and I know I will be back there next time I am in Amsterdam. Heck I would probably live there if Robin would let me.

Our 4 night stay in the Patrician Suite was a slice of paradise. The generous welcome we received from host Robin Toetenel upon arrival was a prelude to what we would experience during our stay. Everything about the Herengracht Suites is thoughtful, intentional and filled with beauty. From the soft sound of classical music playing in the background, to bouquets of fresh flowers, to scrumptious breakfast trays heaping with food, to crisp linens, soft pillows and a comfortable mattress, to the amazing canal view, to the elegant bathroom, to the in room afternoon snack, to a candle lit staircase welcoming us home at the end of a day of touring - these things and more made our experience exquisite. I wish Trip Advisor offered a rating beyond Excellent for highly exceptional environments. I would gladly assign this "Exceeds Excellent" rating to the Herengracht Suites!

Great accommodation, a great host and a great location.

Though I'd hate to have to figure out how to get massive heavy suitcases up the steep, narrow stairs (maybe Robin has a trick to make that simple!).

Brevity obviously can't be the soul of wit for Tripadvisor though with a dumb 200 character minimum review.
