We arrived at our hotel Prinsenhof on Friday after a few detours (!!)
(and getting stuck on one bus while it sat at a station for ten
minutes!) It was very nice - a beautiful canal house from the 1600's.
We headed out again (walking this time!) to the Van Gogh museum where
I (Jen) saw some of my favourite paintings and had some hot …
It took about three hours to get to Amsterdam from Brussels. Meliss and I met in the hostel in the afternoon. We caught up on our seperate adventures at a nice little cafe with yummy sandwiches. We spend the evening wandering around all the pretty buildings and canals, getting out ...
... exploring the beautiful city we were taken to Bazar which is an amazing Moroccan restaurant tucked away from the main tourist areas.
The next morning we said goodbye to the captial. Jonne was kind and made a pit stop to Kinderdijk to get my dose of Dutch windmill. Let me just say Kinderdijk did not let me down, there were 19 windmills in the UNESCO world heritage site which is a Dutch icon. After taking too many photos with the cute windmills we went home to ...
... a tax on the width of houses) and also noticed they lean slightly into the road, with strange little hooks at the very top of the house (again which I learnt is to pulley furniture and goods up to the widows as the stairs are far too narrow!). I would have loved to see one in action! One thing you cannot possibly miss whilst walking through the streets is the sheer number of bicycles there are. Everyone rides a bike. Bikes seem to have right of ...

We took a guided tour and the woman did a wonderful job, packing in lots of history, architectural information and interesting stories. The cathedral is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, and one can easily see why. The building remarkably received only minor damage (mostly the windows) during the war and survives today as a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Prinsenhof Amsterdam
Nice place to stay
The Hotel Prinsenhof has nice, quiet, clean rooms. A good breakfast included in the price of your stay. And a staff that is willing to help you out around the town. It's centrally located and just steps forom the tram-line.
A prince in the prinsenhof
To anybody looking for a nice, clean, quiet hostal at an execellent value - look no further! Spent the last five days there and i'm fully satisfied with the quality and the service i got there. it's located close to the rembrandtplein (good nightspot with lots of bars) and therefore it's easy to get to most tourist attractions either by foot or tram. breakfast is included and good too. at 30 euros a person a night - there's nothing to complain about. i can really recommend the prinsenhof! my tip: rent a bike and just cruise around amsterdam!
Adored the Hotel Prinsenhof
We stayed to the Hotel Prinsenhof both times that we went to Holland. We cannot praise it enough! The staff (Mark and Sabine) are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast they serve in the morning was worth waking up for! The rooms are very clean. It is located right next to the tram #4 which will take you directly to Central Station (10 minutes)where you can catch trains to anywhere! The front rooms have a wonderful view by overlooking the canal and the quaint street. Anything and everything you may need (from tram tickets to delicious bakeries to a laundromat) is very close by. If you are ever thinking of a trip to Holland, the Hotel Prinsenhof is a "MUST" to make your "home away from home".
Great website, bad hotel
The Hotel Princenhof in Amsterdam has an amazing website. Unfortunately, it is far better than the hotel itself. Of curse the room we received was not one of the ones shown on the website. It was so small you could touch the side walls by standing in the middle. The bed was against the wall so one person had to climb over the other to get out. We did overlook a canal but there was only one chair in the room so we could only sit and enjoy one at a time. The breakfast was only so so, dry and unimaginative.
What a great place!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the quaint Prinsenhof. The staff was friendly. The rooms were a bit small, but standard for Europe and they were very clean. We also had a great view of the canal from our window.
We had a room without a private bathroom, but that was never a problem.
I can't wait to return!
The hotel was located in a perfect location with a tram stop just outside. The rooms were spotless and the staff were very helpful.
Lovely breakfast in the morning. Will definitely stay here again.
Beautiful hotel central to everything. Spotlessly clean room and very obliging staff. Located in a lovely area of Amsterdam with great views over the canal. Lots of lovely shops and restaurants near by.
The hotel Prinsenhof was fabulous. Can't praise this hotel enough.We stayed in March 2003. The hotel room was very cheap, and had a shared toilet and shower but that was no problem. It is situated in a lovely picturesque area. Not too far from the centre of town, yet not too close to be noisy.You can easily walk into the centre of Amsterdam or Dam square or take the number 4 tram from accross the road. There is a pub owned by the hotel at the end of the street and we got a complimentary drink when we arrived late! The room was lovely, very big with nice wardrobe mirrors and table and chair. No tv but we had a radio to listen to so no probs. It was clean and the staff were ultra friendly. The best thing about the hotel for me was definately the huge breakfasts of egg bread and cheese. I'l be going again. This place is so good.
Charming, great location, great pub on corner
I found this charming hotel in one of the guide books. It was a great little hotel within walking distance of everything. There is a tram stop right at the corner, but we rarely took it, except to go to Anne Frank's house. The rooms are very clean, the staff is helpful, friendly, and accommodating. I will be staying here again. Great value for the money. Get the top room with a view of the canal. Amazing! Book early.
The Prinsenhof is perfect.
I have had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Prinsenhof on two visits to Amsterdam. This canal house is located on the eastern end of the Prinsengracht, very close to the Amstel River where you can sit and watch the boats go by. The rooms are pleasant and homey, and breakfast is filling. The views of the canal are great for picture taking and enjoying the scenery. Walk out the door and you catch Tram 4, which has a real live person stamping strippenkarts. This was helpful to us learning the transportation system. The staff go out of their way to make visits pleasant. Rembrandtplein is just a couple blocks away, with restaurants, stores, internet cafe and coffeeshops. We highly recommend.
