Prince Henry was referred to me by two trusted friends, and it is easy to see why. The Prince Henry is an old brownstone in a refined part of Amsterdam (think: Upper East Side of Manhattan). The location is steps from the tram, and walking distance from good food, shops, and the major museums. The owners - Petra and Joop - are lovely people who live on the top floor of the property, and take great pride in building, as it is their home as well as their business. They are cordial, helpful but non-intrusive, and maintain and spotless environment. I would definitely stay here again.
Hint - travel off-season! Shorter lines, more peaceful experience. But bring a warm raincoat with a hood!
