We stayed at this establishment for 5 nights at the end of October and were not disappointed. Booking on line direct on their web site was easy and communication with the owner/host was prompt, who answered all my questions and queries gladly. There are 2 rooms in this B&B, one upstairs and a bigger one downstairs. Both have their own... More

Loved it! Great location, lovely owner, basic but tasty breakfast, comfortable and with a lot of character. The only downside was a tiny bathroom. The area, Jordaan is my favourite in Amsterdam. You can easily walk to all the tourist attractions. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at WestViolet 2 nights and loved it. Only a 15 minute walk from the train station, it's located in the Jordaan District near the Anne Frank House. Frank is the perfect host - funny, personable and interesting, and our room was very comfortable. There are 2 rooms at this B&B, one on each of the... More

Cozy apartment in a nice location. Jordaan is a cool neighbourhood with restaurants, bars and little design stores. Close to city centre. Everything was very clean! Comfortable bed, white and new bed sheets. Great sleep quality, quite place. The owner is very friendly and the breakfast was everything we needed. We recommend it!

WestViolet B&B is the ideal place to stay in Amsterdam. About 1km from Dam square and just down the road from the Anne Frank House it is on a little pedestrian street in a lovely quiet area. The two rooms are large with comfortable beds, great showers and a lovely outside seating area. The rooms both have fridges too. You... More

If you ever travel to Amsterdam, WestViolet is the place to stay. It is a two-bedroom B&B with private bathrooms and since we were traveling with another couple it was the perfect setup. The location is not directly on a tram line but the walk to it is very short. We opted to walk to all the major attractions. Frank,... More

this b and b is in a very pretty and glamorous part of town. The groundfloor room is beautiful, spaceous and very comfortable. Frank is very good with interiors and is an incredible and generous host. Your breakfast sets you up for the day and everything you could want for a continental is provided. He gets very booked up but... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
