“Home from home!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

I have just come back from a weekend in Ámsterdam and André could not have made my friend and I feel more welcome! We both arrived at different times and quite late at night, but there he was waiting for us with a big smile on his face! Folks, this is NOT a hotel but 2 romos within someon's house so please inform them of your expected time of arrival as they have busy lives too. Our room was on the ground floor with all the commodities you would expect: comfy beds, powerful shower, hair dryer, fridge, satellite TV, heating..etc. The B&B is in a tiny pedestrianised Street so there is NO noise at all, and yet entertainment is just round the corner. We arrived without a hitch following the instructions on the website of how to get there from the airport. Train from airport to Ámsterdam Central was about 4.50 euros and then the tram was about 2.50. Jordaan is by far the best neighbourhood to stay in if you don't want to be surrounded by loud tourists. The área is so pretty and you get a glimpse of true Dutch life here, but still only a 10-15 minute walk into the centre. After a wonderful 1st night's sleep, we went upstairs to the kitchen for breakfast. WOW! It was so quaint and there was absolutely every kind of food and drink you could want, all laid out perfectly. We only had breakfast there as we wanted to try many different restaurants for lunch and dinner, but André said we had access 24 hours a day. Cereal, bread, eggs, ham, cheese, tomatoes, beer, juice, coffee, tea...etc. André is such a warm-hearted guy and we were delighted that he came and entertained us with stories of his life while we ate breakfast. I just can't recommend this place enough. It really was so much better tan a hotel. No restricting breakfast times, just a warm atmosphere.

We can highly recommend the WestVoilet B&B! Everything was perfect for us: Frank's hospitality, the great location (quiet with the sense of real life in Amsterdam, but walking distance to all attractions) and the beautiful spacious rooms (we have stayed in both and loved it one). This is the place to stay and we can't wait to return.

All attractions within walking distance. Many good restaurants within a few minutes. Frank was a great host, very laid back. We loved being able to have use of the kitchen at any time. Frank kept it well stocked.Would certainly return and can highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs room, stairs were no trouble. Spotlessly clean.

My lovely Dutch friend Karen found the delightful West Violet for me for our fun three day visit in Amsterdam. She told met hat as a New Yorker, I would adore the Jordaan district of the city and she was right!! West Violet is a stone's throw from the Noordermarkt and right off Westerstraat where there are charming shops and the best apple pie in Amsterdam at Winkel. Andre was on duty and was a delight. I was in the second floor, large bedroom with a balcony and right outside the cosy kitchen where all kinds of delicious breakfast treats are available on your schedule! the room was beautifully appointed with a chic style and comfort. Bed was excellent and wonderful linens. I can't wait to return!

Room Tip: There are only two rooms and both are wonderful. the one on the. Ground floor may be slightly large...

Plus : location in the hearth of the Joordan quartier, very large and cosy room,excellent self-service breakfast,very kind staff (thank you Andre'), good price-quality ratio for Amsterdam standards.Well linked to the center(tram from Marnixplatz or simply 15 mins of walk).
Minus : bathroom not very large and with separated basin(in the main room), quite steep stairs.

We had a perfect 2 night stay at the end of Oct at this B&B. Our host (Andre?) was very friendly and helpful.

The B&B is in a wonderful neighborhood (Jordan District I believe), 5 minutes from Ann Franks house, 10 minutes from Dam Square and close to some really nice restaurants.

The beds are are very comfortable and the breakfast is delicious.

It's also very reasonable priced so I highly recommend staying here when you visit Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Any room is fine.

What a great place to stay! Frank, the owner, could not be more helpful, welcoming and friendly. My room was fabulous, exceptionally clean, spacious beyond belief, great en-suite. Also contained a fridge and separate sink unit...very useful, especially for longer stays. Breakfast facilities? Great idea....help yourself to the lovely kitchen and it's facilities. Frank supplies breakfast for all dietary needs and you can cook your own food there in the evenings if you require. Great value for money in my opinion and I would highly recommend it to anyone reading this! I shall certainly return and tell my friends about West Violet B&B.
Thank you Frank!

Room Tip: Well obviously rooms are available subject to availability...but judging by the owner's standard...
