Historical Traveler Reviews Hanna Penso Amsterdam

Luxurious B&B in Amsterdam but good value for money!

from

If you are looking for a special place to stay when you next visit Amsterdam, Hanna Penso is the place to go!

It's a really beautiful B&B in a typical canal house, in a quiet area, but still only minutes walk from the busy town centre. There are 3 rooms, one at the front of the house, another one at the back, with view on the garden and the last one is an independant garden house. They all have all you can ask for to make your stay confortable and pleasant. It's really nicely decorated, and there is a very luxurious feel to the rooms (we were a group of 6, so we had a chance to test all the rooms!).

The beds were very comfortable and the facilities for our breakfast were perfect! Beatrijs, the owner, doesn't cook your breakfast, but you have a small kitchen cupboard in your room, where you have a kettle, coffee maker, egg boiler, small oven and a fridge... full with fresh eggs, yogurts, orange juice, milk, etc etc. And every morning, you get some fresh croissant and bread rolls delivered to your door!!! Beatrijs made us feel so welcome, she just couldn't be any nicer or more helpful.

The rooms were good value for money, no way we could have had such luxury rooms at the price we paid, if we had decided to stay in a hotel.

So if you go to Amsterdam, go there - you won't regret it!!!

Good accomodation & care

from

We had the canal room, which is the first room when you arrive to the place. Very quiet, with very comfortable twin beds, flat LCD TV, kitchenette for breakfast, bathroom with shower and separate toilets. Excellent equipment, everything is brand news with typical furnitures.

Great breakfast.

The caretaker warmly welcomed us.

The position is ideal : very silent but at 10 minutes'walk from Rembrandtplein or den Waag.

I'd warmly recommend this place.

Hanna Penso and Beatrijs are the BEST!

I Stayed here During the Queens Birthday Celebration!

It was Fabulous! The Best! Beatrijs Made

me feel so at home! Accommodations

door looking out onto the small cobblestone

Street and Canal! This place is so easy

to get to by Train and is right in the mix

of everthing to you need to do and see!

Trust me... as a Single Female traveling alone..

I was able to find my way on foot and by train

just fine.. Was able to walk to all the

different areas of town.. Take it from

me... WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!!

Loved this B&B

from

Wow .. i dont think i can say words which would express how lovely this B&B is. We stayed in the Garden House and had such a memorable time. My boyfriend loved the coffee maker lol. Absolutely great price for 100€ a night. Gorgeous place and amazing staff. A**

Absolutely wonderful! Such attention to detail!

from

We stayed in the garden house for my combination birthday and wedding anniversary. The place is just beautiful and in a great location right near the heart of the city. On arrival, Beatrijs had a bottle of champagne and chocolates waiting along with a very sweet note - and that was just the start to a relaxing and indulgent weekend. We will surely be recommending to family and friends and can't wait for the chance to go back.

Best Place in Amsterdam

from

My wife and I stayed for five days in one of the three beautiful and comfortable double rooms in this immaculately restored and updated 18th-century canal house perfectly located at the intersection of the Amstel canal and Nieuwe Keizersgracht, within walking distance of everything you might want to do in Amsterdam. Our room was spacious, very clean and tidy, tastefully furnished, and amply supplied with everything you could need. Newly remodeled, all the fixtures and appliances are new and the internet high-speed access worked perfectly the moment we plugged it into our laptop. The French doors open onto a charming urban garden at the end of which is one of the three rooms, the other two being in the house on the ground floor. The hosts, Jakob Kohnstamm and Beatrice Stemerding, are charming and delightful company, as well as founts of good advice about the City and its environs. Beatrice provided fresh baked goods and restocked our kitchen every day, and gladly filled special requests; her helper cleaned and made up the room every day while we were out exploring. We cannot recommend Hanna Penso more highly than to say we would not think of staying anywhere else when in Amsterdam. Check out www.hannapenso.nl and write to --- -- you won't be sorry.

Beatrijs with the magic touch

from

if you enjoy walking barefoot on wooden floor, if you appreciate aesthetic

design, if you like a peaceful surrounding with flowers and birds, if you

donīt mind worshipping the cats from next door, well, come here and open your senses-

A Beautiful Garden Pension

from

If you are seeking a "Great", warm, friendly, "ultra" clean place to stay while in Amsterdam, Hanna Penso is the place to be. Your owner/hostess Beatrijs is extraordinarily warm, friendly, helpful and charming! She will assist you in every aspect of your stay in Amsterdam, ranging from and including places of interest, resturants, stores, transportation, and special events. The garden setting is a wonderful place for breakfast, reading, relaxation and enjoying the peaceful tranquility of Amsterdam. We would return to Hanna Penso and Beatrijs in a heartbeat.

Perfect! Lovely and peaceful, right in the city center.

from

We spent a lovely weekend at Logement Hanna Penso the end of May, '05.

We stayed in the Garden Room, which was spacious and bright, with a large skylight, window, and French doors that open to Beatrijs' beautiful walled garden where we had a terrace with table and chairs. There were fresh flowers and chocolates too. There is a refrigerator and equipment to make eggs, coffee, tea, toast, etc. The refrigerator was kept stocked with fresh eggs, juice, cheese, butter, mineral water, etc. and fresh-baked bread, rolls and croissants were provided every morning. There are also conveniences such as an ironing board, iron and hairdryer.

It was sparkling clean and amazingly quiet and peaceful - and in the city center! Beatrijs made us feel immediately at home. It was so much more personal than a hotel. The location is fantastic, right on a canal, and a very easy walk to transportation, convenient to everything. It is an excellent value and I would recommend it highly.

No1 for attention to detail

from

We spent a lovely long weekend in April at the newly opened Hanna Penso, which offers traditional Dutch lodging rooms alongside the owners' own residence. We took a chance and booked the "Garden House" which was a studio type accomodation which looked great on the website, and thankfully turned out to be every bit as desirable and non-shed-like as we'd dared hope! In fact, I can't begin to describe how peaceful and immediately at home we felt, which was greatly helped by Beatrijs and her amazing finishing touches... a well stocked fridge of simple delights, coffee and handmade chocs awaiting, fresh bread and croissants hung in the baker's bag on the door each morning, and of course purple tulips which remained proudly upright all 4 days. I am ALMOST loathe to post this review as it really is the dream destination that you would wish to keep to yourself for fear of it always being fully booked..... BUT, that would be to deprive Beatrijs of the future custom that she so richly deserves. My husband & I are actively looking for excuses and free weekends to escape back there ASAP :-) xx

... br style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: normal;">The Rijksmuseum, Netherlands' national museum, is a little further afield but still within walking distance. A city renowned for its brothels and cafes, this is its cultural heartbeat, majestically guiding visitors through centuries of Dutch history while simultaneously showcasing some of arts greatest masterpieces, namely Rembrandt's The Night Watch.

La ciudad de los pecados...

Amsterdam, a world city. A city where you can have fun, walk for miles and do whatever you wish! A city where sex, drugs and rock&roll is most obvious for tourists. Leaving behind an image of Holland as free, open minded and liberal country. This is not the complete and correct picture as Sahid now knows by experiencing the 'inside' through me and my family. Holland has also a big conservative side, is family oriented, follow rules and procedures and love things to be organised ...

Enjoying Amsterdam - Brugge canal trip

We got used to the stairs in our apartment and got out and about sightseeing in Amsterdam. We found a great Italian restaurant called Toscanni's, along the otherside of the canal. After our meal we walked around the local area and did some grocery shopping for our breakfast. We had a full day tour organised for the Delft and The Hague and we visited the very impressive Maritime ...

... narrow streets and canals and then THE SOCCER MATCH!! Holland vs.Argentina in the semi-finals for the World Cup. Unfortunate ending here in Holland. Amy was all about watching it here with Hollanders. Dragged the kids, who are just rolling with whatever we decide to do, to a big plaza where it was supposed to be shown on a big outdoor screen. NOT!! She ended up in our lobby with a room full of sober Argentinians! Bummer!

A Week in Amsterdam

... the trip. It was very interesting and informative. We got to walk through the secret annex and read all about the family's life including interviews with Otto, his employees that helped them stay hidden, and family friends. If you are ever in Amsterdam I highly recommend going to the Anne Frank museum!
We finished going through the museum before it was time for dinner. My roommate from Copenhagen, Taylor, and I went to try to find somewhere with the Netherlands game on. ...
