The Heren is a beautiful 17th century canal house that, although completely modernized inside, retains all of its beauty and charm. My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights and were glad we did. We had one of the two bedrooms downstairs. It's quite large, with a comfortable bed and a beautiful open bathroom with a great shower. Unfortunately, there's no toilet. You have to go out into the hall to find the private toilet that's just for that room. This was somewhat of an inconvenience. In addition, the doors to the two rooms downstairs are partially glass and poor noise insulators, so when our neighbor came home late one night and struggled to unlock his door, we could easily hear him cursing under his breath. There are no windows in the room, but there are two skylights which bring in quite a bit of light and have remote control shutters.
Breakfast was terrific. Vlad is a great host and the people he and his partner Ken have employed were friendly and very competent. The guests eat around one large table, which is conducive to conversation. We met some very nice people there.
The Heren is located in a great spot. it's about a 5 to 8 minute walk to the train station and no more than 15 minutes to the Anne Frank House. It's a little farther to the museums, but very walkable there as well. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby.
We would definitely stay at the Heren again, but we might ask for a room upstairs with the bathroom en suite.
