We just returned for our second stay at the Love Boat - this time with our children. As always, our stay was everything promised - comfortable, clean and romantic. Eric and Katarina, thanks for looking after our boys, we know they can be a handful, was great to be able to leave them safely in your hands. Can't wait to... More

I stayed with my friend here a few nights and we had a real great experience on the waterfront. The boat is very warm and authentic, the owners superbly hospitable and helpful to find our way around. A totally relaxing and safe place in a bustling city. And a great bed by the way.

Great experience, very clean, all the accommodations necessary for a wonderful stay. The location cannot be better, it is minutes within walking distance of central station. Loved it, next time in Amsterdam I won´t bother looking for hotel room, I´ll go directly to a House Boat!!!

Dear FFritz I am very sorry, and still in shock about the fire on board, and can only imagine how you feel, when you think about what could have happened. According to the experts (and your review), the fire was caused by a lamp that was burning in the bed, instead of hanging on the wall. Lamps do not fall... More

My husband kept this accommodation a secret from me. So naturally after arriving by train and wheeling our luggage up to some boats in a ghetto looking area I was quite alarmed. The staff were friendly and explained everything clearly. They left a bottle of wine too. Once we explored the city and retuned to experience our house boat you... More

Excellent boats - hotels, fun and joy with Ina and Eric, I can't forget the sightseeing with Eric, on his boat through Amsterdam's channels! The best way to discover Amsterdam is to stay on their boats and have Ina and Eric near you! Ivana Nikolic Belgrade

We booked the Music houseboat via Roomarama and instantly got an email from the host Elsa to explain that that boat was booked, however they had a bigger one they could let us use for the same price; NewLove. We loved it and the host. The boat was clean, spacious, easy to find and equip with everything. You had to... More

We recently visited Amsterday for a Hen do, we wanted to really experience Amsterdam and ensure that we all had a space to chill out in together. Eric and Nina were amazing hosts, the boats are very well stocked, in a perfect location (very central, easy to walk everywhere) and full of creature comforts so you can travel light. They... More

Fantastic all round. Eric is a brilliant host, gave us some insider knowledge on the area and a lovely trip on his terrace/boat. The houseboat itself is brilliant, comfortable atmospheric and well kept. Would recommend it to anyone, and would gladly return myself.

Staying in Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)

Neighborhood Profile
Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)
A visit to Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands presents the opportunity to marvel at its many modern architectural masterpieces like the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam and the beguiling Python Bridge while taking in its scenic waterfront with its trendy assortment of cafés, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Here in this post-industrial (though in some parts still very much presently industrial) neighborhood, you’ll find a smart selection of cool galleries and shops as well as the kid-friendly Science Center NEMO and the National Maritime Museum.
