We stayed here for 3 nights recently, and we had a good experience overall. The owners were away and we were taken care of by Rosaline who runs another B&B in town. We were late checking in late due to our luggage being lost, and we appreciate Ieke (?) for letting us in. There are only two rooms in the... More

I didn't have the chance to meet Frank & André (on vacation), the owners, but was well taken care of by Rosaline. There are only 2 rooms (doubles) in this B&B, not more than a 10 minute walk from the main train station. The ground floor room is very large, with a small patio off the back and includes a... More

Just a quick note to thank our host, Frank for lending us two bikes for the day to expand our explorations of Amsterdam. The rest of his B&B was perfect - clean, quiet, and well-supplied. Note that the stairs up to the breakfast room are very steep - probably typical for Amsterdam's narrow buildings.

The delightful apt is in a charming area of Amsterdam within easy walking district to the CBD & not too far from Anne Franks House. Our apt was up some stairs ( if mobility a problem ) - it was tastefully decorated,clean,... More

Our large room was on the main floor and even had a small private patio. Frank made us feel welcome. The kitchen is well stocked for a great start to the day. The beds were very comfortable. The room is very clean. There is a small fridge in the room to keep your personal food items. Can't think,of a single... More

2 couples spent 2 nights at the B&B occupying both rooms. The host waited for us (we arrived quite late.) The rooms are clean and spacious. The one upstairs has a better bathroom but one has to carry the suitcases up the stairs (10-15 steps). It's also next to the kitchen but it wasn't a problem for us. The room... More

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.
