“Beyond Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

We spent two days in mid-August and had a fabulous time. After spending hours on the internet trying to find a quiet hotel in Amsterdam I found the Prince Henry. It is located next to Vondelpark in a quiet residential neighborhood. If you walk in to town it is a nice short walk through the park. If you want to take the street car or bus it is only a block or two away.

The suite is beyond large when it comes to European hotel rooms. The bathroom is well oversized with the deepest soaking tub I have seen and a walk-in shower. There is a large garden with seating outside the room through French doors. The breakfast is ready at whatever time you request and was always fresh and delicious with homemade pastries, fresh eggs, yogurt, juice and much more. And you can help yourself to anything in kitchen during your stay.

The hosts were wonderful with helpful suggestions of sights to see and how to get around town.

If you are planning a vacation in Amsterdam this is the best place to stay if you are looking for some peace and quiet in a great neighborhood with good restaurants, beautiful park, easy access to everything and nice hosts. We will definitely be back.

It's quite nice but you are only allowed to smoke cigarettes in the garden... Which seems pointless in amsterdam. The breakfast is a bit rubbish, the coffee machine is nescafe and the iPod dock doesn't fit an iPhone 4.

Hendriklaan, Owner at Prince Henry, Private Suites and Gardens, responded to this review, August 25, 2011
Our first bad review, quite a blow! (No pun intended). Let me refute opinion with fact. We are, as far as I know, the only establishment in Amsterdam that gives guests a private garden/patio where they may smoke. However, it turns out that these guests wanted to smoke marihuana in our garden (on rereading their review with Amsterdam....in the text this becomes clear. We do not allow that and told them so, having received a complaint from the neighbours the first time this happened. As for the 'rubbish' breakfast: it is included and consists of freshly baked off croissants and rolls, home made jams and top quality ham and cheese. Apart from that, fresh fruits and yoghurt. As for the the 'Nescafé'. This is not coffee in a tin, but a dolce gusto Espresso machine with free espresso and capucino. However: if this review serves as a detriment to those who want to come and smoke pot or weed or whatever illegal substance in our garden, we are quite happy.

The Prince henry apartments were exactly how they were described. They are situated in a beautiful part of the city and we enjoyed the close proximity to Vondelpark. The trip was very relaxing, this was helped by Petra being available to help us with useful information about transportation around the city, telling us the best places to eat and booking us the excursions we wanted to do. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

Room Tip: It was Lovely having the garden apartment and having the ability to relax and eat outside if we want...

I have have been to Amsterdam on a number of occasions both for business and pleasure. I have stayed in a number of different 4-5 star hotels. On this trip I left my hotel booking to the last minute and The Prince Henry suites were the only available accommodation I could find.
I was a little apprehensive as it seemed so small (currently only two suites).
I must say it was the best accommodation i have stayed in Amsterdam.
The owners were so welcoming and could not do enough to make my stay so enjoyable.
An ideal place for a romantic weekend or a business trip.
Enjoy the 10-15 walk through the Vondelpark to the center of the city.

It is a hiring of a very great quality, not far from the center of Amsterdam, close to beautiful a park. The elegant installation and the comfort of the room, having a terrace, create an atmosphere of calms and harmony. One can also appreciate the culinary talents of Petra, chief of Van Niftrik Traiteurs, and the good mood of Joop, impassioned music and collector of old pianofortes. I was happy to meet this creative and generous Dutchman couple. The atmosphere of their place of life gives desire for going back there…

We stayed two nights the end of May in the Prince Henry Suites, and it made our trip to Amsterdam all the better. We felt like real natives in this lovely spot on the Vondelpark, free from all the crowded tourist spots but within easy distance to the Leidesplein on foot or by tram. Our hosts were accommodating and friendly, making a delicious homemade breakfast every morning to our tastes. Our room, the junior suite was well decorated and spacious and there were two beautiful bouquets of flowers to greet us. we highly recommend the Prince Henry and will definitely stay there when we return to Amsterdam. This place is a real gem.
