We absolutely loved the Velvet Amsterdam! It will be our new go-to when visiting Amsterdam.
David was very friendly and he quickly answered all emails we sent regarding our booking, check-in, etc (there was a problem with the paypal service when we tried to reserve and David was very quick and accommodating to mend the situation). When we arrived, he gave us a quick tour, showed us the various guide books and info packets they have available for guest use, and offered any and all help we might need during our stay.
The breakfast basket was the best breakfast that we had during our trip this year - delicious bread and cheese, cereal, milk, orange juice, hard boiled eggs - basically the full works of a continental breakfast. And it was delivered to our door each morning (he asked upon arrival as to what time we would like breakfast). It was the perfect start to the day.
We had the canal room view and we just loved it. The room is very large and has everything you might need. The bed was very comfortable and afforded us the best night sleep of our trip. When the windows are opened, you can hear the hustle and bustle of the area. When they are closed, it is nicely quiet. And you really can't beat the view.
Location can't get any better - 5 minute walk to train station, the red light district is right on your doorstep, and there is tons of shops, restaurants, cafes, and pubs located all around. Anything you need is literally just a couple minutes down the road.
We are very much looking forward to our next trip to Amsterdam and the Velvet Amsterdam will be our first choice - perfectly priced, perfect location, perfect host, perfect stay!
