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 best low price hotel!
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.

... before, it was pretty cool.
After this, we explored a clog factory where we saw a presentation on how wooden shoes were originally made by hand and then later by French and German machines. It's a pretty quick process, only taking about 10 minutes from start to finish to complete a pair of shoes. Apparently, wooden clogs are still used today by farmers. We're told that since the ground is so saturated with water here in Holland, wooden ...
... It was the town of Edam. Yes where the original Edam cheese was produced. In fact the cheese is still produced here in a larger factory just outside the town. It is also built around the canal system. The windmills were once used to pump the water through the canals and out into the sea in order to keep the land from sinking back into the sea. The streets are all cobblestone and very narrow. So we spent a couple of hours walking ...

Red Light District (Of course this deserves a separate section!)
Initially I was planning to sign up for a 17 euros walking tour as I concerned about the safety. I then spoke to a server at my hotel and he smiled at me and said, "just go!" I saved 17 euros.
One smart thing to do is to go in the day ...
... Johannes Vemeer, Jan Steen, etc. and highlighted Dutch's Golden Age. The portraits are of real people, not Royalty or a religious hit parade, but common, ordinary folks.
Large museum, and we passed through many of the other galleries quickly, but took a bit more time seeing their Van Gogh collection. We stopped at the nice museum cafe for a refreshment and a brief respite from a busy day.
On to the Van Gogh Museum. On ...
... ours was good! Then we walked to the Red Light District. There are red lights and girls in the windows wearing at least skimpy undies! And tons of guys/men walking by -- very shocking!! Some were pretty, some were not! Some old and fat. There were beds in the little rooms and they shut the curtain when they get business! Gary would not talk to one to get a price so I do not know the going rate!! We cratered before midnight after that interesting ...
