“Good service with good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The owner of Petit prince sure know how to pamper their guests. The service is amazing and the attention to details like candles, fresh flowers and fireplace are really lovely. I ordered an apple pie for the breakfast which was excellent. The place is very clean and perfect. The location of the place is perfect with all the major places nearby. The selection of wines is also worth mentioning. I had a pleasant stay and I hope to return very soon.

I stayed with a boyfriend on the top floor Petit Prince apartment on a cold January weekend and I can not tell you how wonderful it was. I have already told all my friends to stay there when they visit Amsterdam instead of a hotel. We got all the information we could possibly need at checkin and then they left us alone except for daily check-ins when they left awesome baked goods for us. The apartment has tons of light but we also lowered the blinds and slept in a few mornings. Every feature was perfect from the flowers to the fireplace to the outdoor patio. The bed was totally comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with anything you could imagine. Most of all the apartment had an amazing romance factor that few places can beat. I would definitely recommend this place for any kind of special date or romantic event (engagement, proposal, reunion) for two people because the place just automatically lends to it. You definitely don't want to get out of bed or off the floor pillows.

Everything written is absolute truth! The room is very nice, the view is fine, chimney, fridge full of food and drinks, nice music...
Charles really puts great efforts to make you feel very welcome and comfortable! There were several very nice surprises like an apple pie or cheese cakes... In the end we thought, that Charles can read our minds, because anything we wished, was there the next day:)
One thing to know about the apartments - it is situated close to a church, which rings bells each 15 minutes. By times I wished it would stop ringing. That's maybe the only remark I can share.
We are really thankful to Charles and his colleagues!

Petit Prince is my all time favourite : a warm welcome by Charles, and a very comfortable place to stay. The apartment is on walking distance of all important museums and has very nice view at the park. It is really nicely and modern decorated, with a cosy fireplace, and has a fine, clean and neat shower and lovely soft bed. The delivered breakfast in the morning is a delicious and luxurious experience, I could get used to, even as all those tasty things in the refrigerator you may use. In Petit Prince I felt like a princess, it was perfect. I surely will come back.

We really enjoyed our stay here. This place is a true gem. The view and location can not be beat. Our reservation was just hours before our arrival and it was if Charles had been planning weeks for our arrival. The kitchen was fully stocked with delicious snacks and apartment was spotless. Charles spent over an hour with us when we arrived going over everything as well as his full Amsterdam travel guide of must dos while visiting. We will defiantly stay here again when we return.

Ps. Charles makes killer apple pies. I would make this a requirement of your booking to have one delivered each morning & maybe afternoon as well :)

Our stay was perfect, our delayed flight had caused us a late arrival but this was not a problem for Menno who made sure we felt very welcome by greeting us with a warm lit fire and a glass of bubbly, he showed us around the beautiful apartment and made sure we were perfectly comfortable before leaving us to enjoy our first evening relaxing whilst looking out over the amazing view of the canal. The fridge was well stocked and we were very happy! Over the next few days we always felt perfectly cared for whilst having full privacy, knowing that Menno was on hand if ever we needed anything. How nice it was to come back to unexpected treats left by our hosts of fresh pastries and cakes in the apartment, after an afternoon walking along the canals, visiting small galleries and lovely old pubs. Delightful experience thoroughly recommended, the location is perfect, in one of the loveliest parts of Amsterdam, away from the bustle of tourists yet within walking distance of everything. if you are wondering if this is a good place to book I can assure you it is!

Hello David, thank you for taking time to share your experience of your stay at PETIT PRINCE. Sure it was fun to meet you and mostly doing a little additional service is only fun for me and for Menno. It is a mutual thing: when it is clear that you are having such a good time and enjoying yourself at such a good way it is only inviting to add things to your stay. Please come back some other time, some other season. Count on a very favourable return - guest rate + special arrangement. Please say hello to Veronica; you make such a perfect couple ! Regards, Charles

Straight on check-in into 'Petit Prince' me and my husband felt welcomed and at home. The apartment comes well stocked with choice foods and snacks - and Charles, the owner, made sure we could never want for anything. The atmosphere of the apartment was excellent. Terrace, fireplace, decoration, style of modern items was perfect. Living in a typical Dutch apartment face to the canal and street was amazing. If you have kids and need a vacation with your spouse alone, this is an excellent choice to make. Oh! And the home made apple pie was delicious.
