“It's Like Staying with Friends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Staying at The Weavery is like visiting with close friends who moved away and now welcome you into their home. Bettina and Driss are great hosts for their city. We stayed in the upper floor Suite and loved the experience of this classic Amsterdam building infused with all the latest B&B amenities. Some highlights:

Reservations: Reserving the room was easy via email. Bettina was very responsive to our emails and questions.

Recommendations: We were provided with restaurant and touring recommendations prior to arrival and Bettina assisted us with dinner reservations. All of their dining recommendations were outstanding: Mosfera, Winkel, Moeders, and the Odette Cafe.

Accommodations: The room is spacious and loaded with amenities. While you can read about them on their website, you'll find every detail has been thought through including wi-fi and a complete kitchen. When I realized I had not packed the correct electrical converter for the outlets, they provided me with one.

Location: Last time in Amsterdam I stayed across from the train station in the loud, crowded, touristy part of the city. The Weavery's location was so much better because it is on a quiet residential street with dozens of restaurants and shops within walking distance and a tram stop around the corner. The museum district is just across the street from the tram stop. Amsterdam is a very easy city to get around and the Weavery is convenient. We would go out sightseeing in the morning, hang out in the room after lunch and go out again in the evening. Our hosts marked locations on a map of the city so we could more easily find our way around.

btw, don't be embarrassed to take out your map anywhere in the city. Numerous times total strangers would stop and offer assistance to anyone with an open map. Locals know their city is full of tourists and they are so helpful, really unlike anything I have experienced anywhere else in the world.

Breakfast: What's a B&B without the Breakfast? How about a basket full of warm baked goods and boiled eggs waiting at your door each morning and a tray of meats and cheeses in the fridge. OJ, yogurt, fresh jams, tea and coffee are all in the room. Not just any coffee, but a high-end Nespresso. All yummy and enjoyed at your own leisure and comfort of the room.

Room Tip: As noted, stairs to the suite are narrow and steep. We liked the exercise, but if you are mobility i...

Bettina helped us by making a couple of dinner reservations in advance. Additionally she gave us a great recommendation for lunch nearby. We arrived early afternoon and our room was ready. The location was perfect for going to the Rijksmuseum (our planned activity for the day). We had a nice rooftop terrace which we enjoyed while having an excellent breakfast ( hard boiled eggs, croissants and other breads, meats, cheeses, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, etc). The staircase to reach the room is something I will never forget (winding and steep). It is very cool-but be advised-if you have difficulty walking-you might not want the rooftop terrace room.

Room Tip: We had the room with rooftop terrace-lovely for breakfast al fresco

Cool, chic, extremely comfortable, a breakfast to die for and the perfect location. Having travelled extensively, this stands out as an absolute gem with its attention to detail and extremely welcoming hosts. Bettina was able to make some very knowledgable recommendations for restaurants and advice about local attractions yet our privacy was never in question. Cannot praise this highly enough......you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The stars up to the suite are steep but well worth the effort.

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!

This gorgeous place is fantastically situated and run with love and care by Bettina and Driss. The decor is fabulous, every amenity well thought out and the privacy of the appartment, being able to eat and even cook there but with a beautiful breakfast delivered daily was the perfect combination for us. We'd recommend it and will return if we are in Amsterdam again.

Room Tip: The suite was spacious but homely and the terrace a real bonus given the weather.

We just came back from a 6 night stay at The Weavery and we recommend it highly! The hosts, Bettina and Driss are friendly, helpful and informative. The location is fantastic, very close to the main museums in a nice quiet residential area. The Weavery itself has been very well restored and is both historic and comfortable. We stayed in The Suite and really enjoyed it. We also enjoyed eating in some of the local restaurants that Bettina and Driss suggested and they were excellent especially the nearby Brazialian restaurant la Cacerola ! We hope to return once to the Weavery.

This is an incredibly nice b&b. the owner is interested without being intrusive, helpful without being overbearing, it is in a really nice part of town, the room is spotless, beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need, good quality toiletries, a nespresso coffee maker ..... and the most delicious teas ever! I would definitely stay here again if ever in Amsterdam. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to your city.

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
