This boutique B&B is one of the nicest places I have stayed in all the times I have visited Holland. Bettina and Driss are wonderful hosts - from helping carrying our heavy suitcases two flights up, to making dinner reservations and booking cabs for us. The Weavery can be found in an excellent location, close to the Rijksmuseum and Foam as well as many lovely cafe's, restaurants and shops. I loved the Nine Streets area, which is walking distance from the B&B and has many cool boutiques and bars. We stayed in the attic room which is so cosy, you can't believe it. I could have just stayed in the whole time really! Breakfast was left outside the door to our room at whatever time we wanted it, delicious breads and pastries, soft boiled eggs etc. The fridge was stocked with sliced hams and cheeses, water and some champagne to bring the new year in! The room has some lovely touches - an incredible shower, Moroccan style tiles, artwork with a nod to Vermeer. They use Cocomat bedding which is exceptional. On our pillow was an aromatherapy lavender pouch to put under your pillow at night. There is a rooftop terrace adjoining the room which I imagine would be fab in the summer. The accommodation was perfect and I am really fussy, believe me. One last thing, apart from the 24 hour fireworks on New Year's Eve, we did not hear any noise at all during our stay. It's a nice quiet street, not on a main thoroughfare so hardly any traffic, just the odd tinkle of a bicycle!
- 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
