“A perfect introduction to Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Arriving from Atlanta the Prince Henry was a terrific place to stay for my wife and me. We had the downstairs "executive suite", a large, comfortable, and airy room with a private courtyard and huge bath area with separate tub and showers. Very comfortable, and quite near the tram stop, making it a great base of operations for your visit to Amsterdam. Located very near Vondelpark, you will be happy to be in a very upscale area out of the most congested part of the city, but only a few minutes from museums, restaurants and shops, and only a few minutes more to the heart of the city.

Our hosts, Joop and Petra, were friendly and very helpful, pointing out nearby restaurants and attractions. Petra's breakfast was one of the best we had on our entire European trip.

This is a wonderful B&B. I don't believe you could do better in Amsterdam.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Prince Henry from October 4-6th. I was traveling alone and stayed in the Loft on the top floor. What a charming, elegant and beautiful inn! Don't look any further if you're reading this review, and make a reservation. It is a delightful inn with wonderful owners. True, it is a bit "far" from the typical, touristy parts of town, but "far" is a relative word. The gorgeous Vondelpark is a wonderful setting for walking to other areas, and the Number 2 tram stops minutes up the road. The Loft was extremely spacious, especially for a European accommodation and it was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was large and clean, as well, with very modern amenities. I am glad I got to experience (albeit, for 36 hours) this part of Amsterdam, as I had been there once before (in 1999) and only saw the Red Light District and Centraal Station areas. The Prince Henry is situated in what seems to be quite an upscale area, and the two nights I was there, I walked back in the darkness and never felt unsafe. Petra and Joop are very welcoming and my gosh, the home-made food is incredible. They really make you feel like you're part of the house. They are so helpful and also aren't intrusive whatsoever. The perfect balance of accommodating and hands-off (if that makes sense). Hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did. I plan to be back in Amsterdam and will definitely check first with the Prince Henry for availability before looking anywhere else!

Room Tip: The Loft was a perfect location for a solo traveler - lots of privacy and very quiet.

The Prince Henry was a delightful stop for us, just off the red-eye from Los Angeles. Everything about the place and their people was great - we looked out on a quiet street, the furnishings were elegant in a generous-sized room, the bathroom was super up-to-date (best we enjoyed during several weeks in NL, France and Italy), the location allowed us a pleasant walk to the museum district. We had to catch an early train the next morning, so the staff set up a cab for us and packed breakfasts for us as well! Plus, there was active communication back and forth before our visit, and on site. Joop & Petra put a lot of positive energy into us, even though it was only a one-night stay - would that every B&B/hotel was as great as this one.

"Amsterdam is prettier than Paris," said our 4-yr old son when we opened the French doors to the garden at the Prince Henry.

Breakfast every morning on the patio was the highlight of our 4-night stay in Amsterdam. Petra kindly prepared breakfast to-go for our early morning departure on the final day.

Conveniently located in a lovely neighborhood next to the Vondelpark. And nearby Williemspark Way is lined with chic restaurants and cafes.

We would have taken the tram more often if everything was not so walkable in Amsterdam.

Highly recommended for a special stay in Amsterdam.

We recently stayed at this wonderful B&B with our 2 young daughters, and cannot recommend it highly enough. Petra is a host beyond compare, and makes the experience so home like. Our daughters didn't want to leave Amsterdam! From the beginning, Petra ensured we got the best room suited to our needs (the executive suites on the ground floor, which had an outdoor area for our girls to play), made sumptuous breakfasts, such as pancakes for our fussy little misses (complete with smiley faces) and fruit pots with jaunty umbrellas. Moreover, she bought color pencils for our girls to draw, took them on a walk with her so they could play with Bubbels (her dog) and on top of all that, packed us a full breakfast to take with us to the airport. We were touched beyond words. Petra had also arranged a wonderful young lady to babysit our girls, so we could take full advantage of the nightlife Amsterdam has to offer. The location is also excellent -- close to Vondelpark, but just a short tram ride away from the tourist areas and museums. The room itself was large, spotlessly clean. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: If traveling with young children, and/or have heavy bags, request the ground floor executive suite...

I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely B&B with two friends. We had the Superior Suite, very large and comfortable for three persons. Breakfast was great, we had fresh roses, a fireplace and a coffee machine, plus some great snacks in the afternoon and plenty of water/juices.
Both Petra and Joop are extremely kind and they certainly deserve to be on top of this list.
The location is great, close to Vondel Park and 10/15 minutes by walking distance from Leidsplein, or one bus stop. Strongly recommended!!!
