The Posthoorn
Ranked #22 of 338 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 29, 2010

I recently stayed here on my vacation, and it was just perfect. The neighborhood is lively and fun, and it is a quick walk from both the train station and to major sights (Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum, etc.). The room was clean and very comfortable, with free wireless internet, a very filling breakfast each morning, and beer and wine provided in the mini fridge. Jasper was a very welcoming host, even checking in on us when the volcanic ash cloud grounded all flights. Overall, a perfect B&B that I would recommend to anyone!

This was our first stop on our recent 2 week European vacation & I hardly wanted to leave! Jasper & Vera are fantastic hosts & run a very lovely B&B. All of the major sights are within easy walking distance - Anne Frank house, Westerkerk, the Rijksmuseum & there are great places to discover around the neighborhood for shopping & dining. Jasper & Vera recommended a great restaurant for us for dinner the first night. Every morning, Jasper brought a picnic basket FULL of delicious food. It was so generous & way more than we could eat! The room was very comfortable (probably the best bed we had the whole trip) & very clean. I can't wait to visit Amsterdam again & I know where we'll be staying when we do!

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. Full continental breakfast including freshly baked bread and croissants is served to guests in their room each morning. Staff aim to make guests' stay at the Posthoorn memorable. ... more   less
