Wonderful quaint but modern accommodation, quiet, safe, pretty area, would strongly recommend this to all. We walked every where, 15 mins from Central Station, only 5mins to Anne Frank museum. Other reviews have covered it perfectly so will say no more. Thanks Frank.

After searching a number or websites for accommodation in Amsterdam I chose to stay at Westviolet due to the excellent reviews and the location. Booking via their own website is quick and easy. Having previously stayed in a modern hotel right in the city centre, I wanted to try something a little more traditional which both Westviolet and Jordaan proved... More

We picked this B&B because of the great reviews online. We can't add anything else to the first rate comments already recorded except to say that it is all true! Frank is a very natural and welcoming host who offers first rate accommodation and hospitality. A truly lovely place to stay in a very safe and hip area. For places... More

Where do I begin? From the moment we arrived, Frank made us so welcome. There are two rooms at the property and both are beautifully presented. Unlimited hot hot water, which is great after a day pounding the streets of Amsterdam. The West Violet is located in a perfect, quiet location for visiting all the attractions and there are excellent... More

We loved Amsterdam and also going home to a welcoming West Violet each evening. The quiet, yet central location made it ideal and we walked almost everywhere as everything, including Central Station and the main museums and galleries were under a half hour walk. The B&B is on a quiet pedestrian side street, a minute's walk from a canal and... More

We stay at WestViolet at least once/year and have recommended it to friends as well. Great rooms with a well stocked kitchen and great location. Super, friendly service from owner Frank including an unexpected drive to Centraal to catch our train on our last visit. I recommend WestViolet to anyone looking for a fabulous stay in Amsterdam.

Stayed for one night at West Violet. Arrived extremely tired and frazzled after a fiasco with new train Fyra from Brussels. Came in late having missed a day of appointments! And then, soothing and caring Frank was there. All of a sudden, there was the intimate kitchen, the kettle, the tea, fresh bread, great cheese and ham, a big cozy... More

We were more than happy with our stay at WestViolet and will recommend this place to everyone visiting Amsterdam. A perfect place to stay over a long weekend. The room - or more like a studio apartment with small garden - was nicely decorated, spacious and very clean. Frank, the host is such a nice and helpful man, he made... More

So where shall we begin? Let’s start with the most important asset of the West Violet, Frank our host. Frank is a charming, genial man who makes you feel very welcome. We had the pleasure of chatting over a coffee in the well stocked and very clean kitchen during our break at this lovely B&B. Frank was very helpful and... More

This B&B is so comfortable and the breakfast arrangements allow you to get up and eat when you like. Very chilled out- like being at home! Great care to detail, friendly, helpful hosts and a great location in the Jordaan with lots of lovely bars and restaurants. I may have stayed here a few times!!!
