There are two rooms available, one at the quiet back side and one at the front side of the building. Each room has a private shower and toilet; tv, free WI-FI, quality king-size bed, fridge, coffee, tea facilities.
The accomodation is located in the old town center of Amsterdam, only a 5 minutes’ walk from Amsterdam Central station and most attractions are at walking distance. From Central station you can take local trams and buses and national and international train services. Museum Square (Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum) can be reached within 10 minutes by tram number 2 or 5. The owner speaks English, Dutch and some French.
The Oudezijds Voorburgwal was dug between 1342 and 1380 and is the oldest canal of Amsterdam. The canal used to be called Fluwelen Burgwal (Velvet Rampart), referring to the wealthy families that lived here, usually dressed in velvet as a sign of wealth.
Almost all the housed have been restored to their original condition. A beautiful example is the “Huis aan de drie grachten” (House on the three canals) at the end of the Oudezijds Voorburgwal, with a gable stone that mentions the name Fluweelen Burgwal.

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at Velvet and what a find! David, our host, sent us directions for the short 5 minute walk from the station to Velvet before our arrival in Amsterdam and they were so easy to follow. As he couldn't be there to meet us he gave us instructions as to where to find the key and popped in to see us later that afternoon when he quickly answered our questions and gave us tips on the best things to visit in Amsterdam and getting about both on foot and by tram. He said that if we needed any help or further information we only needed to ask.
He explained that he would bring us our breakfast each morning and would leave it in a basket outside our door and asked what time we would like it to be delivered. When our basket arrived it was full with bread, croissants, jams, cereal, fruit, milk, orange juice, and hard boiled eggs together with cheese which had been left in the fridge in our room. Tea, coffee and a kettle were also supplied in the room.
We had the room at the back of the house which was really quiet and, although the view wasn't the best, for the amount of time we spent in there it really didn't matter. The location of the house was perfect. We were around a 10 minute stroll from Dam Square and near to the red light district with plenty of brilliant bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both slept very well, which is unusual for us when we are away from home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and can heartily recommend Velvet. Thank you David for making our stay in Amsterdam perfect and hope to see you again in the not-too-distant future.
Really good. David is a great host. The appartment is perfectly located in Amsterdam Center. I will come back again it was a great stay. Thanks
Perfect location, lovely breakfast basket, very clean, quiet and comfortable. Very good directions. Very pleasant and friendly host. Thank you for the help with lifting our bags to the room much appreciated by elderly folk.
This B & B is highly recommended. Price and performance is awesome! The rooms are pleasantly decorated in size and very nice and the shower again. A television and DVD is also in the room, a fridge, kettle and fan, as well as a hair dryer. David is a very nice host and every morning we had breakfast with the Körbli stand outside our door, so we could eat when we wanted. The B & B is super-5min directly. from the train station on a canal just off the coffee shops are next to the Red Light District, but still it is quiet pleasant time. In the next Amsterdam trip I will stay there again with certainty. Thank you again for everything!
Dieses B&B ist absolut empfehlenswert. Preis und Leistung ist genial! Die Zimmer sind angenehm in der Grösse und sehr schön eingerichtet und die Dusche neu. Ein Fernseher und DVD steht auch im Zimmer, ein Kühlschrank, Wasserkocher und Ventilator, sowie ein Föhn. David ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber und jeden morgen hatten wir das Körbli mit dem Frühstück vor unserer Tür stehen, somit konnten wir Essen, wann wir wollten. Das B&B liegt super- direkt 5min. vom Bahnhof entfernt an einer Gracht, gleich bei den Coffeeshops uns neben dem Red Light District, aber trotzdem ist es angehm ruhig. Bei der nächsten Amsterdam-Reise werde ich mit Bestimmtheit wieder dort übernachten. Nochmals herzlichen Dank für Alles!
The location is SUPER, the room very nicely decorated, the bathroom is brand new! Kind regards to David, we felt very comfortable. PS: Forgot to say Hab: bathroom door squeaks that bothers night, but is fixed securely fast! :-)
Die Lage ist SUPER, das Zimmer sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, das Bad ist nagelneu! Lieben Gruß an David, wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt.
PS: Hab vergessen zu sagen: Badezimmertür quietscht, das stört nachts, ist aber sicher schnell behoben!! :-)
Fabulous! Great location, sense of style, comfort and breakfast. A quality place in the heart of Amsterdam.
Excellent place to stay for a weekend in Amsterdam. The room is spacious, cozy and very clean. It is also very quiet because the room at the back of the house, we slept. Breakfast is simple and good. The location near the promenade is quite touristy, but it is close to the Central Station, which is quite easy. I can see the room to anyone.
Uitstekend logeeradres voor een weekendje Amsterdam. De kamer is ruim, sfeervol en erg schoon. Ook is het erg stil omdat de kamer aan de achterkant van het huis ligt, we hebben prima geslapen. Ontbijt is eenvoudig en goed. De locatie vlakbij de Zeedijk is nogal toeristisch, maar het is vlakbij het Centraal Station en dat is wel zo gemakkelijk. Ik kan de kamer aan iedereen aanraden.
The BB is just amazing :-)
Das BB ist einfach nur super :-)
