We really loved our stay on this lovely houseboat just outside the city centre. Everything you could possibly need is provided in the boat. There's plenty of space to relax and the clever use of the wardrobe as a room divider makes the bedroom area feel very cosy. Rene is very friendly and accommodating, even dropping us at the station... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this boathouse for four nights and it was an outstanding experience. Rene (the host) is very friendly and helpful. The boathouse is only one short tram ride away from the centre. The tram stop is just a couple of metres away from the boathouse. The boathouse itself is very comfortable and modern. Rene would...

Staying in a boat house was truly one of the great experiences we had in Amsterdam. The room was very spacious for the price we paid and nicely segregated into the bedroom and the living room area. Waking up to the tranquility of the canals in the morning with the occasional swans and ducks swimming by is definitely something that... More

I certainly recommend this place as an excellent base for exploring the city of Amsterdam, whilst being able to retreat to a nice peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle. I emailed Rene before our trip and he gave us some excellent advice regarding transport to the boat and how to get about during our stay. We landed at... More

Hi Dan, My apologies for the late reply to your motivating review. Thanks for staying at the Bed Breakfast Boat around Christmas. The start of your stay was not great because the boat is hard to find from the tram 26 stop in the evening. Good news though...bus 22 is back in town and stops at 200 meters from the... More
