Splendid location in the Jordan district. Spacious room (we stayed at the first floor), well equipped kitchen free to use 24/7. Great host - Frank brought us fresh bakery every morning. Clean, big and cosy rooms. We'll be back!

I had booked the WestViolet based on two things, that it had good reviews from most travelers specifically comments on how helpful and friendly Frank Nolen is and also the fact that it seemed to be pretty booked up in general (although having only two studios to lease out could mean it can get booked up fairly easily). And as... More

The bed and breakfast is in a fantastic location, not far from the Anne Frank House and a lot of lovely shops and cafes. There is a lively market at the end of the main street on Saturday mornings. The walk from the train station is not too long either - we did it with our hand luggage quite easily.... More

My husband and I visited WestViolet with another couple during the first stop on a multi city roadtrip. There are only 2 rooms, so we had the entire b&b to ourselves. We arrived on an early morning flight and were thrilled to be welcomed in, shown to our room and lead to the kitchen where we had breakfast. We stayed... More

We loved this B & B! The spacious and lovely second floor apartment had a balcony overlooking a garden, a modern bathroom and the shared kitchen on the floor was like having our own! We were right in the middle of a quaint neighborhood and within walking distance of transit to everything! The local Saturday market was amazing! Thank you... More

Our 5 day stay in Amsterdam was made memorable by Frank Vollen and his beautiful house. Comfortable beds, modern bathroom, a 24 hour access to the kitchen and all food,very private, perfect location tucked away in a small side street a few steps away from the main drag. Frank bent over backwards to make sure all was perfect - I... More

Everything was just perfect. The staff was very good - Conny helped us a lot, answered all the questions. We stayed in the room on second floor, next to kitchen. The room is very nice, clean, with a small balcony. B&B is situated in 15-20 minutes walking from Central Station. And it is near Westerkerk and Anna Frank's House. The... More

What can I say, it was even better... It's located in a quiet dusch style ally in the magnificent Jaardan area with many pubs and resteraunts all... More
