From Australia I needed to spend one night in Amsterdam on my way to visiting my mother in Leiden. I found accommodation in Amsterdam very expensive until I came across this absolute gem. I had the basic room which was perfect with a dual view with the morning sun beaming in on a cool day. Breakfast was plentiful. For something... More

We spent 3 nights here, and had a wonderful time - we really didn't want to leave. The best thing about it, I think, were the fabulous views over the River Amstel. It was specially lovely to wake up and see the mist across the water - or maybe it was better at night to see the lights reflecting on... More

My husband and I stayed at Little Amstel for 2 nights and we loved it! It was great for us that usually stays in a sailboat on vacation. The clean room, the view, the breakfast i a paperbag, the location and Mirjam`s service were excllent! We will recommend it to all our friends that love boats.

Mirjam was awesome! Communication with her was so fuss free! And the little amstel is a 10 to 15mins walk away from the heineken brewery and a 8mins walk to the nearest tram stop. Everywhere in amsterdam is really convenient so i felt i made the right choice by staying at the little amstel! Breakfast provided was so good and... More

We stayed for a weekend on this lovely houseboat. The room was clean and small but nice. We had a fantastic view. Every morning breakfast is brought right to the door. It was delicious - for us and for the hungry ducks too. Staying on "Little Amstel" Houseboat is a good alternative to passing the night in a hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was a fantastic place. A little bit of a walk to most things but it was nice being in a quiet location. Breakfast is brought right to your door and you can enjoy the water views while having a coffee or tea, which is provided in the room. Rooms... More

We stayed for 3 nights on march 2014. Great view and well located. Small room with everything U need, even free wifi (absolutely needed for our first trip to amsterdam). The only bad point is that it's a little bit noisy by night because of the location next to a bridge. every morning some ducks came to share our big... More

Small but nice, modern and clean room with really everything you need (even free WiFi). We were there in February and room as well as bathroom have a heating - no freezing at all. Good location near Metro station, nice view, lovely ducks swimming around you and watching you during breakfast. Price ok. I'd come again!

Thanks to Mirjam for this wonderful location. We slept very well. It was our first overnight on a boat and it was fantastic! A beautiful view on the river Amstel, very central located to the hotspots in Amsterdam and a tasty and huge breakfast in the morning. The room is modern with chosen materials and styles. Everything is very practical... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights in November. We are regular visitors to Amsterdam from the UK and had decided to try a houseboat rather than a hotel for a change on this trip. We were welcomed by a huge heron who was standing guard by our door way! We were in the far right room (with... More
