We stayed in the Suite room for a week in Amsterdam and it was a bit like living in one of those fairytales where there are magical elves that make your breakfast appear right when you ask for it, and come in when you are out and tidy up the place a little bit. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious. Bettina also left us some strawberry custard cake slices one day, fresh berries, muffins, and cookies another.
Location of the Weavery is ideal! You are just a couple minutes walk from the Museumplein (Home of the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk museum, the Van Gogh museum and capped off with the Concert Gebouw). Coming to and from Amsterdam Centraal station is as simple as taking a tram from a couple blocks away, and getting to Schipol is just a couple blocks the other way to Bus 197 for €4. We also walked to several other museums and there is a market nearby. You really feel like you are in the heart of Amsterdam when you stay here.
My only caution for this stay is the stairs, and that is because they are steep and if you have limitations on mobility then the Suite may not be the room for you. (I can't speak to the Silk Room) If you are able bodied, then aside from the day you take your luggage up and the day you bring your luggage down them then its not a huge concern.
WiFi was excellent (better than some hotels we'd stayed at earlier in our trip), and all other amenities were in great working order. Shower was exceptional, and the private roof terrace was inviting, even though the weather wasn't so much when we were there.
- 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
