We were made very welcome , Frank is a lovely man who takes pride in his house and business. Very clean, in a lovely part of Amsterdam close to canals, restaurants, bars. The Ann Frank house is only a 5-10 min walk , make sure you book on line before you go, you can then bypass the massive queue and... More

Andre greeted us and made us feel so welcome, we immediately felt at home and used the kitchen to make a cup of tea. No traffic noises, large bedrooms and great showers. Not a hotel, so need to feel at ease in someone elses home, but its not a problem for anyone. Self service, but use of everything, even to... More

I have just come back from a weekend in Ámsterdam and André could not have made my friend and I feel more welcome! We both arrived at different times and quite late at night, but there he was waiting for us with a big smile on his face! Folks, this is NOT a hotel but 2 romos within someon's house... More

We can highly recommend the WestVoilet B&B! Everything was perfect for us: Frank's hospitality, the great location (quiet with the sense of real life in Amsterdam, but walking distance to all attractions) and the beautiful spacious rooms (we have stayed in both and loved it one). This is the place to stay and we can't wait to return.

All attractions within walking distance. Many good restaurants within a few minutes. Frank was a great host, very laid back. We loved being able to have use of the kitchen at any time. Frank kept it well stocked.Would certainly return and can highly recommend.

She told met hat as a New Yorker, I would adore the Jordaan district of the city and she was right!! West Violet is a stone's throw from the Noordermarkt and right off Westerstraat where there are charming shops and... More

Plus : location in the hearth of the Joordan quartier, very large and cosy room,excellent self-service breakfast,very kind staff (thank you Andre'), good price-quality ratio for Amsterdam standards.Well linked to the center(tram from Marnixplatz or simply 15 mins of walk). Minus : bathroom not very large and with separated basin(in the main room), quite steep stairs.

We had a perfect 2 night stay at the end of Oct at this B&B. Our host (Andre?) was very friendly and helpful. The B&B is in a wonderful neighborhood (Jordan District I believe), 5 minutes from Ann Franks house, 10 minutes from Dam Square and close to some really nice restaurants. The beds are are very comfortable and the... More

Also contained a fridge and separate sink unit...very useful, especially for longer stays. Breakfast facilities? Great idea....help yourself to the lovely kitchen and it's facilities.
