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.

My lovely Dutch friend Karen found the delightful West Violet for me for our fun three day visit in Amsterdam. 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

What a great place to stay! Frank, the owner, could not be more helpful, welcoming and friendly. My room was fabulous, exceptionally clean, spacious beyond belief, great en-suite. 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. Frank supplies breakfast for all dietary needs... More

Help yourself to tea & coffee in the kitchen, steep stairs to kitchen above our room. Food in the fridge make your own breakfast or a snack if you... More

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
