We stayed at the Posthoorn for five nights in early June; our third stay there. As always, Francois was a wonderful host, the room was comfortable, clean, charming, the location in the middle of everything we wanted to see, and as an added bonus, we got to babysit his 3-month old kitten, Bergamot, for a few minutes when she unexpectedly...

We stayed 4 nights in June/July 2012 in the front canal room. The room is a little smaller than ideal but is made up for by the great, ever changing view out the window right over the canal. Francois was the perfect host and assisted us with making dining suggestions and dinner reservations - all of them very good and...

Everything about The Posthoorn B&B was simply outstanding - from the service, to the spacious room, to the delicious daily breakfast!

He assisted us...

This delightful canal house couldn't be better located -- just minutes from the Anne Frank House, canal boat access, Trip Advisor's "best" restaurant (Brasserie Vlaming), the locals "best" apple pie (Winkel), fabulous bike tour (Mike's) and just about everything else one would enjoy in this great city. The owner and host, Francois, couldn't be more hospitable and helpful -- even...

Three nights at the lovely Posthoorn - ideal in every sense (location, rooms, ambience, host). We stayed in the Canal Room with a great view over the canal. Enthusiastically recommended. Restaurants in the area tend to be very expensive so explore the Jordans area where there are plenty of good alternatives (Italian especially). Full marks to the attentive and charming...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Housed within the fine walls of a listed historical 17th century canal house on one of Amsterdam's most picturesque canals in the heart of the city - the Prinsengracht - part of the UNESCO World Heritage, The Posthoorn Bed and Breakfast features three charming rooms which offer guests four-star luxury whilst staying in the Jordaan district. The Canal View Room, Patio Room and Hidden Church Room ooze opulent and stylish character within the pleasant atmosphere of this contemporary bed and breakfast flawlessly disguised in the old-fashioned exterior of this canal house. The history behind this interesting building dates back to 1578, during which time Catholics were refused to visit their churches so several hidden churches were built in private houses. Around 1650, one was built in the basement of what stands as The Posthoon today and if you wish the owner will be pleased to tell you the history of the house. The elegant decor of The Posthoorn is boasted throughout each and every room. The livingspaces feature a flat-screen cable TV, en-suite bathroom with under-floor heating, comfortable sofas, free wireless internet. In each room you will find a kitchenette including coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator complete with white wine, beer, orange juice, milk and mineral water. Full continental breakfast including freshly baked bread and croissants is served to guests in their room each morning. Staff aim to make guests' stay at the Posthoorn memorable. ... more   less
