Just back from a fabulous weekend with 16 girls staying in the Love and Music Houseboats. Great location for walking around the city but quiet enough for a good sleep too. Boats are really well kitted out and very very comfortable - even when its cold. Eric, the host, really went the extra mile to make sure we all had... More

The Love Boat is one half of a small sea boat located very near to Amsterdam's Central Station, and part of a small complex of canal boats (and the one sea boat). This is easily the most atmospheric yet fully functioning accommodation I've ever stayed in. A cute kitchen means that small meals like breakfast are easily self-catered, the bed... More

I stayed in the Love and Rose houseboats in July and had a fantastic stay, and I am already dreaming of coming back... The boats are really close to Centraal Station, but far enough from traffic that it is really peaceful and relaxed. I'm glad we decided to stay somewhere central, as it was really easy to get everywhere on... More

We spent 4 night in the music boat and it was a great experience. It was the fourth time that I come in Amsterdam and for me it was the best place to be. The location is perfect, you just need 5-10 minutes by walk to come from the central station. The owners is very nice and helpful. The houseboat... More

The reviews of this boat are all outstanding so I really feel like the odd one out. It really could be a beautiful boat but, never having been to Amsterdam before, I guess I didn't know what to expect. When we got there and saw the area where the boats are, with all of the old and rusty boats, it... More

Dear Jennifer, I was very sorry that the LOVE boat did not match your expectations. That you left for the Amrath hotel the next day, -one of the most luxurious and expensive hotels in town-, probably does say something about your expectations on arrival. By the way: Amrath is our first neighbour, only 30 meters away, exactly in the same... More

Great boat ,great location if you want to feel like one of the locals this is the place to be. The only thing this boat is missing is two bikes but we hired them anyway and that's recommended, an easy way to see a huge part of the city at little cost.

We rented the love boat, the boat it self was cosy, clean and very romantic. When we arrived we met up with the host who showed us how everything worked in the boat,... More

We have stayed at many of the top hotels and talked about staying in a houseboat for years. We stayed in the Love Houseboat for a little under two weeks in fall of 2010 and... More
