The past and the present are unmatched at The Weavery Boutique Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam. What was once a home and workshop to a family of weavers, is now a family home, bed and breakfast and still a destination for hand-made carpets. These one-of-a-kind carpets change regularly as they are sold and custom ordered.
The Suite – where carpets were once stored
The Silk Room – where the original family worked
Coffee, tea, and fruit are always available in your room. A welcome or afternoon treat is left after your room is prepared or cleaned for you on a daily basis. The fridge also contains milk, orange juice, yogurt and a platter of Dutch cheese, cold meats, and a couple of sliced vegetables for your breakfast. Cereal is on the counter. A basket of several freshly baked pastries and breads along with a boiled egg, cooked to order, will be placed outside your room, still warm, at your desired time. Breakfast is available for 12.50 EUR (13 USD) per person/night.
Over 300-years of history
Keeping with the tradition of the work that was completed in the building, the current owners (Bettina and Driss) have handmade custom rugs from Morocco throughout the home and rooms – all available for purchase. You may also design your own rug, knowing all rugs are one-of-a-kind, hand-made in Morocco. These rugs are made in the village in Morocco that Driss grew up in as a child, by women he knows.
The perfect stay in Amsterdam
The Hosts of The Weavery is German-born Bettina and Moroccan born Driss, who met in Amsterdam.
Bettina is a wonderful host and provides a substantial list of places to go, things to see, and recommended restaurants and cafes. If something requires reservations, she will gladly make them. She will also show you where they are on the local map she provides for all her guests. The Weavery also has an app that you can download, preloaded with recommendation and a map that can be used without internet. I highly recommend The Weavery Bed and Breakfast for your trip to Amsterdam.
