My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous weekend at The Weavery. Everything has been put together by the hosts Bettina and Driss with extremely good taste, and well thought through with their guests' comfort in mind. A classic historic Amsterdam house renovated with a real eye for design and understated style - attention to detail hardly does it justice. Lovely breakfast with homemade jam, freshly baked breads, and cakes later in the day if you're lucky! The hosts are more than happy to suggest excellent tips if you need them, or otherwise just head out of the front door and explore since The Weavery's location is ridiculously convenient for visiting most of Amsterdam's attractions and nightlife; just off the the beautiful and historic canal belt and but a stone's throw from the museum quarter - including the recently reopened Rijks Museum, the Van Gogh Museum and the new Stedelijk Museum. But still tucked away in a discrete and authentic Amsterdam residential neighbourhood so you get to enjoy a chilled and restful stay.
Really it would be hard to find a better place for a short stay in Amsterdam, or for a longer break even, whether traveling for fun or for business. We travel a lot and I'd hazard a guess that The Weavery + Amsterdam = one of the best European weekend break combos out there.
Check out the Moroccan carpets also, too good to be true!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in a protected 17th century house in the heart of old Amsterdam, the Weavery offers the unique character and style of a boutique hotel, with the personal service and homey comfort of a family run bed & breakfast."Gezelligheid" (roughly translated it means cozy and pleasant) we keep top of mind at the Weavery. Another key characteristic is independence. Each room is fully self-contained, with private bath and w/c, separate entrance and kitchenette.Our charming rooms feel like a home away from home to the independent minded traveler, who likes to move at his own pace. In short, we designed the Weavery to feel more like a pied-à-terre than a hotel or traditional bed & breakfast.The Weavery is as perfectly located as can be imagined. We are just 5 minutes walk from the museum square and a short stroll from all the big theaters. All the main shopping areas like Leidestraat, the 9 Streets and PC Hooftstraat are just around the corner and so are many lovely cafes and restaurants.Our rooms offer - Queen size beds- Ensuite bathrooms with bath/rain-shower and W/C- Bathrobes- Rituals bathroom amenities- Hairdryer- Kitchenette with double cook plate, microwave, dishwasher and fridge- Coffee/tea making facilities- Lounge corner- Flatscreen TV- Wireless Internet- Laptop Safe- ipod docking stationWe have two rooms: The Silk room which is located on the lower ground level and sleeps up to 3 people and the Suite, located on the 2nd floor, which has its own private roof terrace and sleeps up to 4 people. ... more less
