Amazing location in a super quiet neighborhood. The owner is cool. There are large windows witch allow childrens to play with the ducks that are ont the canal. We found a parking space (without pay and without fine). Bike hire and bus station are 5 min.

My husband and I stayed here for three days in November before we boarded for a cruise on the Danube River. I had wanted to experience living on a houseboat. The location is in the Jordan area and was walking distance to much that we wanted to see. It was a very unique experience to watch the swans swim past... More

Stayed here for several nights and thoroughly enjoyed myself! The houseboat is perfectly appointed with everything you might need including lots of sprinkles for your toast.

Having just spent the weekend aboard Annette's houseboat, I cannot recommend it enough! Annette is a lovely host who has thought of everything. The Fridge even comes stocked for Breakfast. :) The houseboat is located in a lovely, quite part of Jordan, but is close enough to central Amsterdam. There are great restaurants and bars just around the corner. I... More

We stayed 4 nights on Annette's houseboat in October. The location is great, central (A 15 MN walk from the station) but also very quiet. Shops, restaurants and bars of the Joordan area are reached in less than 5 mn. The tram (3) is just a few minutes away. The studio is clean, nice and well equipped, It was great... More

Our family of four (incl two children 11 and 14) stayed on Annette's delightful houseboat for three nights in early August and we loved it. Annette is a warm and gracious host, and the studio, which is part of a larger houseboat, is very clean, comfortable and cosy. It's ideal for a couple, and fine for a family with two... More

Annette offers a truly Dutch experience. She is a gracious hostess who provides all the creature comforts that make you feel at home. Ark 16 is located in a lovely neighborhood with fantastic restaurants, playgrounds for children, and sights within walking distance. We highly recommend it! It will be unforgettable!

What can I say about this place.... Friendly host, quiet location, lovely neighbours, tranquil and authentic Amsterdam experience. For something a bit different you really can't go wrong here. Jordaan is such a cool place with loads of places to drink, eat and watch the world go by.

Everything has already been said but I enjoyed staying at Ark16 so much that I can't help but add my bit to the unanimous praise. Ark16 is an original, fun and reasonably priced experience. Annette is a lovely host who makes sure her guests enjoy themselves. Don't hesitate, stay there!

I recently stayed for the second time on this houseboat, and I loved it just as much. I think watching the ducks and swans glide by is one of my favorite things to do anywhere in the world. I want to go back not to see Amsterdam but just to relax in the houseboat. It's so cozy and comfortable. One... More
