In those little rooms, we have a wonderful view on a one a the numerous river of Amsterdam. The location is good with metro or tramway stations and a big theatre with restaurants around. The room itself is simply gorgeous. A little small but very well accomodated, it faces east and the sunrise. Having ducks and other birds a few... More

I have never stayed on a houseboat before and was pleasantly suprised to find how clean & cosy this place is. We were also extremely greatful for the central heating! We opted out of the breakfast each morning which meant we never got the chance to meet Mirjam; it was nice being left to our own devices but as we... More

It was a wonderful stay. Mirjam is really kind. The breakfast is great for two, it's almost a lunch. To stay in a house boat it's an experience that we recomend to every couple that goes to Amsterdam. And the Little Amstel is a pretty house boat, with all comfort of a good hotel, privacy and the sight of Amstel... More

We stayed three nights and really enjoyed the houseboat. Our corner room was quiet small....but adequate. Clean bathroom, great beds and really good breakfast delivered each morning. We did walk from the train station....it was about a 20 mn walk with packs...and the directions weren't super clear....but we found it! It is really quiet considering all the surrounding construction. Lovely... More

Little Amstel is a great experience. We stayed 2 nights in the corner room of the houseboat which was a most tranquil retreat after sightseeing around Amsterdam. Mirjam was a brilliant host, supplying us with a plentiful breakfast each morning, and was most helpful with advice on locations to visit. Highly recommended.

We spent 2 nights in the family room (largest room) of the Little Amstel houseboat in Amsterdam and it was such a unique experience! I've never even been on a houseboat before and when we arrived on Saturday afternoon it was great to see people passing by our houseboat for Saturday evening cocktails on their boats. Originally we had requested... More

We had a fantastic three night stay on the Little Amstel Houseboat. We stayed in the corner room, which was light, clean, comfortable and had great views of the river. The room had everything you needed for a short city break. Mirjam was very welcoming, and she brought us a great breakfast each morning. We hired the bikes for a... More
