My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Weavery while traveling through Europe this Spring. Bettina, the owner and fantastic caretaker, is welcoming, lovely and knowledgable and we felt completely at home the moment we arrived.
We stayed in the downstairs unit which was cozy but perfectly suited (and spacious) for my husband and I. In suite bathroom and kitchenette were perfect and the bed was the most comfortable that we stayed in during our entire trip. The Weavery is centrally located, just a 10-15 minute walk to the 9 streets and other shopping and museums but is on a quiet, darling street. Bettina was extremely helpful in finding restaurants and cafes and helped us make a dinner reservation for our first night and ordered a cab for us for the morning we left.
Don't miss out on her breakfast, its well worth the cost as every morning she drops off fresh pastries and breads and fresh hard or soft cooked eggs and an assortment of meats and cheeses, fruits and veggies as well as juice and yogurt to eat in your apartment- delicious and a nice change of pace after trying to find breakfast every morning. We were so glad we did breakfast with her both days during our stay.
Also make sure to walk over to Cafe Wettering, its the most darling bar you'll ever go to, with a real fireplace and jovial, no nonsense bar tenders, my husband and I went there several times for a glass of wine, beer or coffee and wished we could stay there forever.
We will absolutely stay at the Weavery during our next trip to Amsterdam, its a perfect bed and breakfast and Bettina is the kind of person you want to be friends with, welcoming, kind, knowledgeable and funny, five stars at its best!
- 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
