My husband and I recently travelled to Europe then onto Canada and New York. Having read the reviews on trip advisor early in the year decided to book 3 nights at the Velvet Amsterdam in late August this year. We had previously had a bad experience with B & B's but this was the complete opposite. Not only was the room exactly as depicted but meticulously clean and every amenity supplied including an ample breakfast delivered every morning to our room. The location was superb and only a short walk to everything in central Amsterdam. Our host David couldn't have provided anything else and free Wi-if was an added bonus.
We had the back room which was very spacious, a little noisy with construction work going on but eliminated with the windows closed so was not a problem in the least. I would definitely return and highly recommend to anyone travelling to Amsterdam as it is located close to the Central station and David provided clear directions on how to get there by foot. Very close to numerous restaurants and sight seeing spots and Dam Square. Great value for money!!
