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

Great location, easy walk from central station with a myriad of restaurant choices on your doorstep. Delicious and generous breakfast basket, spacious, warm room with ensuite bathroom. I was a little concerned about the location with a child in tow. However, turn right outside the door and you head straight into the red light district, turn left and you'll never... More

David is a perfect host. Beautiful room and so clean like been home from home, better than any B&B i have stopped in before. Fantastic location right on the canal with great views,the breakfast box was superb and started us up for our days of sightseeing. Would definitely recommend Velvet Amsterdam Bed and Breakfast ........

Both rooms were confortable,clean, and equipped with everything (Kattle, hair dryer, Cd, Tv and coffee/the facilities) better than most of the business hotel. We apprecciated the breakfast basket left in front of the door at the time you requested. David... More

Just back from a wonderful stay at Velvet Amsterdam B&B. The location was excellent for its closeness to the train station and central Amsterdam. Moreover, having dozens of restaurants literally within a stone's throw was a definite plus. The room was of a good size, neat and very clean with a splendid view of the canal. Breakfast, which was left... More

Unluckily I could spent just two nights in Velvet B&B but it has been awesome. The room was so clean and I really enjoyed my staying in total comfort. It is located less than 10 min from the central station on one of the nicest canals in Amsterdam in my opinion. In the room I finded everything I needed and... More

I travel a lot in my work and always stay at business hotels, thus I was looking forward to my stay at Velvet Amsterdam. And I was not disappointed! The host David was more than helpful with answering my questions despite me arriving late in the evening. The room was clean and neat and had everything what I needed. At... More
