Amazing location. Perfect for visiting the red lights and all they have to offer along with the popular city centre coffee shops and head shops. But, more importantly, walk in the right direction and you can virtually miss all that. Find yourself the gorgeous canal and bar culture and sample the world of cuisine on offer. Amsterdam has a new... More

Set amid bars, coffee shops, and sex workers, (which is true of most of the city center) this place was truly an oasis of calm and comfort. We had the canal view but, despite heavy foot traffic, it was quiet. ( it was December, so windows shut) It is above a restaurant, but we never heard or smelled a thing.... More

Perfect location, great room and friendly owner. Such a luxury having breakfast brought to the room and being able to eat overlooking the canal. So happy with our choice of B&B and would definitely recommend this one. Amsterdam did not disappoint, we loved every minute.

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at Velvet and what a find! David, our host, sent us directions for the short 5 minute walk from the station to Velvet before our arrival in Amsterdam and they were so easy to follow. As he couldn't be there to meet us he gave us instructions as to where to find... More

We absolutely loved the Velvet Amsterdam! It will be our new go-to when visiting Amsterdam. David was very friendly and he quickly answered all emails we sent regarding our booking, check-in, etc (there was a problem with the paypal service when we tried to reserve and David was very quick and accommodating to mend the situation). When we arrived, he... More

I love to write bad 1 star reviews as well as 5 star reviews and as much of a critic as I am, (naturally being a Virgo!) the Velvet Amsterdam merits a SOLID 5 STAR! After traveling to 6 countries this past month I would have to rank the Velvet Amsterdam near the very top as far as Accommodations vs... More

My husband and I recently travelled to Europe then onto Canada and New York. Having read the reviews on trip advisor early in the year decided to book 3 nights at the Velvet Amsterdam in late August this year. We had previously had a bad experience with B & B's but this was the complete opposite. Not only was the... More

Wife and I stayed for seven nights, end-August 2013. Location is perfect for walking to innumerable tourist sites, restaurants, pubs, markets, squares, ad infinitum, with convenient and quick foot access to the Central Station for day-tripping throughout the Netherlands by rail, tram or bus. Host David and associates were unobtrusive; but, when required, available, helpful, and invariably polite. Accommodation was... More

My stay was July 20 through July 28, 2013. I love this place! it was 2nd floor on canal, so I could watch the boats in the canal, families dining, and passer by on bikes, horse and carriage, and view the marvelous architecture. But that's only the view. The accommodations were a gem, very clean, high quality bedding, very modern... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The accommodation has a private entrance and is on the first floor (without lift) recently renovated canal house, which dates from 1930. I have two room one with canal view and other is on at the back of the house. The room has a private shower and toilet, directly accessable from the room; TV, DVD player, free WI-FI, a double bed, fridge, coffee and tea facilities. Breakfast is served in the room. Weekly and monthly rate available. In this rate breakfast is not included. The B&B is located in the old town centre of Amsterdam, only a 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. Most attractions are at walking distance. Museum Square (Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum) can be reached within 10 minutes by tram number 2 or 5. From Central Station you can take local trams and buses and national and international train services. The owner speaks English, Dutch and some French.If you have any questions, just ask. Hope to welcome you soon in our B&B. ... more   less
