A bit of a walk from Amsterdam Central station (a good 15 minutes) which can be quiet tiring with luggage but once you get to the boat you will see that it is a great location for exploring the main sites of Amsterdam. Rooms are a bit small but what can you expect if you're staying on a boat? There... More

Booked the Friesland for a couple of nights at a great price and found its location to be ideal. One thing to note was that we were looking for a boat named Friesland in a specific dock, and the actual name on the side of the boat is Amicitia, and was in a different dock. Not a huge issue but...

John was so awesome-- we got tripped up in weather issues and had to miss one night of our reservation but he switched it to the latter half of our trip, no problem. We arrived and there was a seamless check-in, and the reviews are right-- super-clean, small but fun! Only complaint was it got pretty hot at night, but... More

We had a lovely time on Friesland. The rooms are a bit tiny but it's located so close to the city centre with a fantastic view. Breakfast was great with plenty to choose from and the owners were nice and friendly. Very hot showers, yet toilets could bea bit smelly. A bit noisy at times at night with loud neighbours... More

There was a bit of a smell from the toilets while we were there but i think that was tempoary and it seemed to be fixed on the day we left. Breakfasts... More
