We normally stay in hotels for city breaks, but wanted a different experience for our second time in Amsterdam. We did not regret our decision in choosing WestViolet.
The location was perfect for our chill out break. It's walkable from the station and in the area of Jordaan, which is laid back and obviously within the canals.
The room was large, taking up the whole floor downstairs, front to back. At the back was a tiny outside area accessed by your room, that you can have a cigarette. The best bit for me was the huge and very comfortable bed.
Frank does a fantastic job of making sure your every need is catered for and the whole stay was stiff competition for any hotel. The only thing that would stop me saying it was better than any hotel was the bathroom. It is ensuite, but it is kind of a lean too and it was very cold. It is total practicality over anything else, with a shower that worked well, and a toilet. The sink is at your kitchenette area in the main room. So, nothing wrong with the function, but I like my bathroom experience to be comfortable and warm.
The kitchen was well stocked and we never went hungry or got bored of seeing what different things we could try for breakfast. There is everything you need and more. Look out for the wifi code on the kitchen wall.
We enjoyed our stay very much and were left feeling that many hotels could take a leaf out of Franks book. He has a very good concept of running a B&B. I just wish the bathroom was a bit more and we would never stay anywhere else!
