20 minutes from Amsterdam, in the centre of the older Waterland town of Monnickendam, Suitehotel Posthoorn preserves a timeless air of homeliness. It’s hard to stop yourself sighing in contentment as the rich, sultry hues of the decor and soft, dusty light washes over you. Even contemporary touches – mirrored chandeliers in the restaurant, flatscreen TVs in the rooms – don’t spoil the warmth of the 17th-century illusion. Posthoorn is the ultimate get-away for a romantic stay; just outside the busy city centre Amsterdam but still within reach.
It is no surprise that the Dutch royal family appreciate the truly unforgettable pampering to be had at the Posthoorn – a unique place, where history and pure indulgence have gone hand in hand since the Napoleonic Era. Napoleon Bonaparte himself was one of the famous guests to have spent the night at this regent’s house dating from 1697. The Posthoorn cannot be categorized, but excels at offering a melting pot of different styles, with luxury, quality and cordiality as guiding principles. As soon as you enter this listed monument, you will feel the richness and opulence of the Dutch Golden Age. Situated just 12km from Amsterdam, the Posthoorn offers sophisticated and luxurious suites and rooms. Owner Marc Boeljon has visited Europe’s most beautiful boutique hotels for inspiration, coming up with a daring mixture of nostalgia and modern luxury.
Champagne-coloured chenille seating, honey-hued chandeliers and butter-gold walls lend Posthoorn’s Michelin-starred restaurant (closed on Mondays) an air of contemporary elegance. Chef Jeroen Bavelaar leads an innovative French-Mediterranean cuisine with daring combinations of fresh seafood , meet dishes and vegetarian surprises. Four-. five- and seven-course taster menus are on offer. For groups Posthoorn offers a Private Dining room and in the warmer summer months the garden and veranda offers a beautiful dining experience. All within easy reach of Amsterdam’s many sights and attractions.
We hope to welcome you at Suitehotel Posthoorn!

We were here with Christmas and had the suite with a separate front door. We had an excellent stay, great dinner and perfect breakfast. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the spacious suite with all the needed comforts. Would heartily recommend!
