We stayed for three nights September 2013. I chose the canal room, and we were so happy that we did, as the room has two large windows, looking out over the canal scene. The room was an acceptable size for us, with a small kitchenette, including a handy refrigerator. Our host, Francois, was very helpful when we checked in, giving us enough information to get us on our way in Amsterdam. We were very thankful that we chose this establishment because it is a real neighbourhood feel, while still close to the main attractions in town. On Saturday, there was a wonderful market that took place just a block away. There was everything there, including food, flowers, clothing, shoes, costume jewellry, and antiques. On Monday there was a flea market on another street, also about a block away. Anne Frank Museum is a 2 or 3 block walk from here. We did not have an issue with noise from the street, or the owners above us. Francois served us a beautiful breakfast in the mornings, in our room. The person who cleaned the room did such a good job of making the bed, that we could have sworn the sheets were changed daily. There were 3 beers in the fridge when we got there, but they were not replenished over our 3 day period. The bathroom was a bit tight, but clean. My only issue was with some mould in the shower. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this B & B. Thank you, Francois, for such a memorable stay in Amsterdam!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Housed within the fine walls of a listed historical 17th century canal house on one of Amsterdam's most picturesque canals in the heart of the city - the Prinsengracht - part of the UNESCO World Heritage, The Posthoorn Bed and Breakfast features three charming rooms which offer guests four-star luxury whilst staying in the Jordaan district. The Canal View Room, Patio Room and Hidden Church Room ooze opulent and stylish character within the pleasant atmosphere of this contemporary bed and breakfast flawlessly disguised in the old-fashioned exterior of this canal house. The history behind this interesting building dates back to 1578, during which time Catholics were refused to visit their churches so several hidden churches were built in private houses. Around 1650, one was built in the basement of what stands as The Posthoon today and if you wish the owner will be pleased to tell you the history of the house. The elegant decor of The Posthoorn is boasted throughout each and every room. The livingspaces feature a flat-screen cable TV, en-suite bathroom with under-floor heating, comfortable sofas, free wireless internet. In each room you will find a kitchenette including coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator complete with white wine, beer, orange juice, milk and mineral water.
