We spent 4 nights in the Silk room at the Weavery over a long weekend in Amsterdam. In summary, it feels like home!
The charming couple and hosts, Bettina and Driss were very kind and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. They welcomed us in their home, gave us hints and recommendations to enrich our stay. Their perfect sense for details, the decoration of the room, the home made cookies and the freshness of the bedsheets and towels made our stay exquisite!
The neighborhood is quiet and residential, the house is located in the middle of the main attractions: Anne Frank House, principal museums (5 minutes walking distance from Rijksmuseum), shopping streets (all around the corners) and great restaurants and cafés.
We would definitively recommend this place to any travelers looking for a different experience from the common and mainstream hotels that can be found in any large european city.
- 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
