This B&B is in an excellent location. Very easy to find, host gives excellent directions. We arrived via train and had no issues finding this place. Host was there when we arrived and was very helpful. The host (david) lives upstairs and is there if you need anything, but is not hanging around - there are two rooms, we had... More

We decided on an extended, five day, stay in Amsterdam before our Viking River Cruie departed for Basel. Having never been to the city before, we relied on the reviews posted on this site to help select our accommodation in Amsterdam. To our good fortune, we chose Velvet Amsterdam based on the experiences noted on TripAdvisor. What a wonderful location... More

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
