The boat is very close to central train station (8-10min) Even rooms are very tiny and down of the boat (-1), it worths to stay there. Rooms are clean. Especially, entrence (up floor) is very beautiful at night. You can drink tea or coffee there, all the devices are in the floor and free to be used. Personel is also... More

We stayed on this boat for two nights and it was definitely fun, but I don't think I would have wanted to stay there for longer! There is not much space anywhere: we barely managed to open and keep our suitcases in our room, the bathrooms were so small you could not even turn around, etc... But still, we really... More

So, i visited Amicitia with a friend sharing a bunker cabin last August. The boat itself is pretty clean. There was some maintenance going on in one of the bathrooms and it created a lot of noise in the morning. The staff are pretty friendly and we were allowed to stay on the lounge upstairs for over 6 hours the... More

I stayed here as it was cheap and close to the centre of Amsterdam. It is only a ten minute walk from central station and it is a ten minute walk to to the main attractions of the city. The rooms are extremely small but very clean. The toilets and showers are also small but very clean! Perfect for people... More

I booked this hotel as it was one of the cheaper options close to the centre of Amsterdam. The place wasn't too hard to find, even though I arrived in the evening as it was going dark and many of the boats nearby look similar. (Look for pier 3 and the Amicitia is at the far end of it). The... More

Convenient enough location, 10-15 minutes walk from the central station. Relatively quiet location, but being a boat you will hear everyone else moving around. Clean and warm, rooms are tiny, lounge is more spacious.

Very happy to stay at Amicita. Great staff (thanks Steph) I especially enjoyed the lounge area. very clean and tidy. peaceful in the evenings, and quiet at night time. I only experienced the bunk bed room, but I'll try doubles next time. Would definitely recommend

As they say, it's in the small things, but staying on a boat everything is small, so everything counts. The rooms are painfully small, and it felt like no thought was put into how 2 people can functionally use the space. Everything crammed into a small corner, mirror super small in an unuseful place, taps too big for the sink... More

We stayed in a twin room on the Amicitia in October 2014 for four nights. And while this old boat has a few technical issues it makes up for it in charm. The boat is located close to the Nemo science museum at the end of a peer with great views overlooking the Oosterdock waterway. Centraal and centre of the... More
