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 Posthoorn Bed and Breakfast 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

THE POSTHOORN is a great place in the Jordaan neighbourhood near the center of Amsterdam. The location is magnificent. Approximately 10-15 minutes walk to the railway station, also 10-15 minutes walk to the central Dam Square, 8-10 minutes to the house of Anne Frank and to the trendy shopping area "Nine Streets." Also I would like to note a magnificent and very authentic view from this mini hotel. Very tasty breakfast. Special thanks to Francois for freshly baked bread and croissants and freshly squeezed juice for breakfast. In the evening this place is very quiet and you can get a good night's sleep. Especially I note that all rooms have very comfortable beds. We stayed in two rooms: 4 nights in "Hidden Church Room" room and 4 nights in "Patio Room". Everywhere was very clean, shower rooms are in very good condition, a coffee machine in the rooms. In all rooms fast Wi-Fi. "Hidden Church Room" - a place quite comfortable for three people. In addition, with its very interesting history from the 17th century (see at the Posthoorn website), which certainly adds to it authenticity. "Patio Room" - a more spacious place with a patio. Very convenient and spacious for three people. Francois is very welcoming, friendly and careful host. He recommended restaurants, shops, tourist routes. He also advised how it is more convenient to get somewhere, answered all our questions, and if he didn't know something, then he specially found out about everything and then explained to us. We highly recommend this place to everyone and will be happy to come back here next time.

Très beau séjour de 4 jours à Amsterdam dans une maison typique au bord du canal avec chambre très propre et spacieuse pour y mettre un lit bébé. Le quartier est très agréable pour s'y promener, pas loin du marché hebdomadaire et de pleins de cafés et restos sympas. Accueil chaleureux du propriétaire qui nous a donné de bons conseils pour visiter cette superbe ville.
