“Perfect Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

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!

My husband and I had the most lovely time at the Weavery. We stayed in the Suite for 3 nights in May 2014. The space -- which included a sleeping area, kitchen area, living area, bathroom (including a shower + tub + sink, as well as a separate room for the toilet + small sink), and outdoor space -- was fantastic, cozy, and bright. What makes the Weavery extra special in my opinion (and the place I will recommend to every friend or family member who travels to Amsterdam) is the wonderful owner, Bettina, who took such incredible care of us. Both my husband and I were under the weather on our visit and she went out of our way to make sure we had everything we needed, including finding us a doctor and providing treats for while we were in our room. You could not find a more lovely place in all of Amsterdam.

Room Tip: The Suite was wonderful and spacious but be aware that the stairs are quite steep (way steeper than...

The Weavery is by far the best B&B experience I have ever had... I wanted to surprise my wife with a trip to Amsterdam for her birthday, so as usual she expected that we would be staying in a hotel, but we stayed at The Weavery, and what a delight it was!
The area: The Weavery is ideally located in the historic Centrum of Amsterdam, just a couple of hundred meters from the picturesque canals and the Rijks Museum, the neighbourhood is lively, energetic and offers a lot of possibilities for shopping and eating out, Bettina will help with giving you the best tips.
The house: The owners have made a tour de force in transforming their 300 years old house into the cosiest nest that can be. We stayed in the Suite, an amazing room with a terrace that can accommodate even a family with 2 kids thanks to an ingenious use of the space under the attic. The decoration is tasty, elegant and very thoughtful. Even the bed linnen are made of noble and natural materials, the bed was very comfortable.
The hosts: Bettina and Driss, so kind and so helpful. We were surprised by the little details that exceeded all our expectations, on our first day, as we arrived in the Suite, we found a bottle of champagne and a cake to mark my wife's birthday, it really made her day...
We received many tips that made our citytrip so much pleasant, including shopping addresses, restaurants...etc
Needless to say that Bettina has elevated the B&B business into an artform. And as far as we are concerned, there will be repeat visits at The Weavery. A one of a kind experience!

The Weavery is in a perfect location, very near Museumplein, Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein and only a 15 minute walk to most everywhere else. For those not interested in walking, it's close to the tram stops and bus stops. Bettina is the perfect host - helpful advice with a good orientation (both beforehand with emails and after you arrive), preparing a breakfast platter of meats and cheeses, fresh orange juice, yogurt, homemade jams, coffee/tea, a bowl of whole fruits, and a cooked to order egg with a basket of fresh rolls every morning. The upstairs suite was roomy with a terrace off the back. Several days we came home to find homemade treats awaiting us. Our only complaint would be the street noise (loud talking) during the nights even though it's on a small quiet street.

Room Tip: Top floor suite is ideal, but the steps are very, very steep and winding!

Every home comfort has been thought of at The Weavery. Bettina and her husband have made every effort to make your stay perfect. Comfortable beds, clean and neat decoration. Bettina leaves her baking "treats" each day- delicious and such a lovely touch.A perfect location near the Museums and every effort was made to advise us where to visit and how to get there.
Restaurants, bars and supermarkets all within walking distance. Their hospitality was wonderful and we would highly recommend The Weavery to anyone wishing for a relaxed and homely stay in Amsterdam.....thank you.
A wonderful stay over Kings Day celebrations- such fun!

Room Tip: We stayed in the basement room and could not fault it!

We felt so welcome in this amazing bed&breakfast in the middle of Amsterdam. We found here so much more then any other place we have ever stayed. Not only are the rooms amazingly beautiful, but Bettina and Driss really took care of us. Arriving on valentines day 2014, we found a beautiful (home-made) heart shaped pie and (home-made) heart shaped cookies in our warm and cozy room, accompanied by a nice bottle of champaign. Also the breakfast was so nicely presented, it made the whole experience more and more special. Our pleasant stay in Amsterdam was entirely thanks to The Weavery. Next time when we'll be there, we know where to check in.

We can't remember the last time we stayed in a place that was so perfectly lovely that we didn't want to go home. The Weavery is just such a place. After a nine night stay we were almost sorry that we had to pack our bags and leave for home.

Located in a typical 17th century Amsterdam house on a quiet side street in the historic South Canal Ring district, The Weavery has the perfect location, being within easy walking distance of many top sites, such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh & Stedelijk museums, the Concertgebouw, Vondel Park, the Flower Market, etc, as well as within easy walking distance of the numerous nice restaurants & shops on Utrechtsestraat and of the antique shops and art galleries on Nieuwe Spiegelstraat. Slightly further afield but still doable on foot are the Anne Frank House, the Jordaan district and the Historic Center.

Our room, The Suite, is on the top floor. It is quite huge with a high, peaked ceiling with exposed beams. Half of this big space has been turned into an upper level sleeping loft, ready for additional family members, children, etc. There is also an outdoor deck. The room also has complete kitchen facilities and, of course, private bathroom. And lets not forget the beautiful Moroccan hand woven rugs that are upon the floors. Everything is wonderfully well maintained and spotlessly clean. The total space is probably larger than your average NYC studio apartment. We assume the ground floor room, the Silk Room, is equally lovely.

Bettina Abaouz, the innkeeper, is the very heart & soul of good cheer and the perfect helpmate for the clueless traveler, having ready at her finger tips a wealth of knowledge about Amsterdam and the Netherlands. She will be happy to make dinner reservations, get museum tickets, etc, etc. She directed us to many really good, reasonably priced restaurants in the area. Also, she and her husband and two little girls live on the 1st & 2nd floors of the house. (The ground floor is the other guest room.) In our opinions it is always an excellent thing to have the innkeepers living in the inn.

Breakfast is served in the room each morning. Freshly backed breads and eggs (hard or soft) are left in a basket outside the door of the room at a time of your choosing. The fridge is well stocked with cheeses, yoghurts, jams, milk, juice, etc. There is a coffee machine and pot for boiling water. You do have to make your own coffee & tea. From time to time freshly baked cookies, muffins and little cakes appear magically in the room.

There is a discount for longer stays. The rate that we paid for a double in The Suite, including breakfast, was around 170 euros per night - a bargain as far as we're concerned. No doubt rates change with the seasons. But there are only two rooms. So if you are seriously considering it you will no doubt need to book well ahead.

In short - we can't wait to go back. Amsterdam is a great city with much to see and do. And The Weavery is the perfect place from which to do it.

Only caveat: The Suite, on the top floor of a four floor building, is reachable only by a very narrow, very steep stairway, two flights up with two reverse curves. This, while typical of many old Amsterdam houses, could be a problem for some people. If so there's always the ground floor Silk Room.

Room Tip: The top floor Suite is the room to book. But be advised it is only reachable by means of a narrow an...

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
