My sister who lives in Amsterdam, found this fabulous B&B for the 4 of us coming from Los Angeles, my husband, myself and our 4-yr old twins. My correspondence with Bettina months before our trip was efficient and very helpful. Once we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Bettina and her husband, Driss, who helped us with our big luggage, going up the very steep (to put it mildly!) stairs up to our 3rd floor room. And he was right, we DID get used to the steep stairs after a couple of days!
The room is very nicely decorated and equipped with top notch appliances and fixtures. Though on the cozy side, the room however, is much larger than what you'd get from a European hotel. You would definitely not get the personable service and attention that you'd get here, from a hotel.
We stayed for 3 weeks during Easter and during the course of our stay, Bettina, the excellent baker that she is, treated us with numerous baked goods and surprise gifts for our kids, from time to time, with a little note as well. It seemed like we were staying with family!
The location, too, is very super convenient to get almost anywhere by foot or by tram. Bettina also has a list of cafes and restaurants where she recommends, which you can very much rely on.
We cannot wait to come back to Amsterdam...and stay here again!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in a protected 17th century house in the heart of old Amsterdam, the Weavery offers the unique character and style of a boutique hotel, with the personal service and homey comfort of a family run bed & breakfast."Gezelligheid" (roughly translated it means cozy and pleasant) we keep top of mind at the Weavery. Another key characteristic is independence. Each room is fully self-contained, with private bath and w/c, separate entrance and kitchenette.Our charming rooms feel like a home away from home to the independent minded traveler, who likes to move at his own pace. In short, we designed the Weavery to feel more like a pied-à-terre than a hotel or traditional bed & breakfast.The Weavery is as perfectly located as can be imagined. We are just 5 minutes walk from the museum square and a short stroll from all the big theaters. All the main shopping areas like Leidestraat, the 9 Streets and PC Hooftstraat are just around the corner and so are many lovely cafes and restaurants.Our rooms offer - Queen size beds- Ensuite bathrooms with bath/rain-shower and W/C- Bathrobes- Rituals bathroom amenities- Hairdryer- Kitchenette with double cook plate, microwave, dishwasher and fridge- Coffee/tea making facilities- Lounge corner- Flatscreen TV- Wireless Internet- Laptop Safe- ipod docking stationWe have two rooms: The Silk room which is located on the lower ground level and sleeps up to 3 people and the Suite, located on the 2nd floor, which has its own private roof terrace and sleeps up to 4 people. ... more less
