“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed April 4, 2006

Last autumn, my wife, new born baby and I had the great good fortune to spend a week at Prinsenhuis, in beautiful Amsterdam.
Not only was the apartment luxurious, lovely and convenient, but the Ogdens treated us like special friends from overseas. The apartment combines ultra modernity with a feeling of antiquity and timelessness. Super comforatble beds, great bathroom, high tech coffee machines and digital cable TV!
We hope to return again and again.

Stayed September 2005

We have just returned from a long weekend at the first class Prinsenhuis apartments in Amsterdam.

We stayed in the Manderin apartment on the ground floor, which looks directly onto the Prinsengracth canal. The first thing that took us back when Brick(the owner) showed us in was the stylish contemporary design of the appartment. It was the coolest apartment I have seen, after staying in numerous ones across Europe.

Over the weekend we realised what a great location we were in just 5 minutes from the Leidesplein square, where you can enjoy the outside cafes and buzz of the square, 5 minutes from the bike hire place, from where we took went clycling in the nearby Vondelpark and along the canals. We were just a short tram ride away from Dam square and the shopping streets, Neuimarket and the canal trip boats. Along the street the appartments were on there was a superb restraunt where we ate on the last night and a small supermarket round the corner that we used for breakfast shopping, so well catered for.

We spent quite a bit of time in the appartment with some lazy mornings having breakfast and watching the boats pass on the canal infront of us. After a while you realise how well finished the appartments and the quality of the furniture and applainces. The bathroom was really stylish and spacious with underfloor heating, a deep bath and a really powerful shower. The bedroom had large really comfortable bed with a door that lead out onto the patio that we managed to use, even in March!!!

It was a superb weekend. Being able to look out onto quiet street,the canal, the old amsterdam buildings and being able to walk or cylce anywhere in the city easily made us feel as though we were really living in Amsterdam.....

Loved it, would recommend it to anyone...

We enjoyed the hospitality at Prinsenhuis on two occaisions, in the Spring and the Fall of 2005. The apartments are exquisite in every way! Fully equipped, elegant and comfortable. A super location, with great eating nearby, as well as shopping, and transportation. A true "home away from home". Go and stay, there is no way you will be disappointed...
