What a really lovely place to stay! It is just outside of Amsterdam central, a very short bike ride away. The stay was lovely, amazing breakfast and very comfortable, clean room. A perfect place to stay.

A wonderful experience being on the water with top notch accommodations and beautiful hosts (thank you Sylvia and Theo). Tranquil water views yet just a short tram ride to the hustle and bustle of the city center. A 5 minute walk along the water to a great little tapas restaurant.

Sylvia and Theo were were both friendly and professional. The accommodation was spotless!! It was peaceful and tranquil. Perfect for a couple or a small family. It is only three very shot stops on the tram. Close enough to the city and far enough from the madness at the same time. Both hosts were extremely helpful and the breakfast each... More

My friends an I had a wonderful time at the Boat & Breakfast. Theo and Sylvia are wonderful hosts! Breakfast was our favourite part, it was delicious. Theo even received and dropped us off at the train station which helped us out a whole lot. We would definitely stay here again :)

I can safely say that this was the best decision we made and Theo & Slyvia did their bit to make it a memorable experience for us. The boat and the stay: Theo was there to receive us at the central station and... More

Sylvia and Theo were the most friendly host who genuinely care about us as guests and wanted us to have a good time in Amsterdam. They were very accommodating for our late arrival.

We ( 2 couples) lived in this lovely and well- decorated houseboat for 1 night in February. Theo and Sylvia are really nice and friendly, as well as their lovely dog ;) Not to mention the welcome drink and traditional dutch waffle, the breakfast was very nice and tasty! We will defiantly recommend our friends to stay at this houseboat... More

We spent a couple of nights at this B&B in December. It was very clean and quite spacious. It's located in a very quiet spot and either way you get the impression that it is well insulated so no noise issues if you're a light sleeper. Our hosts were very gracious and friendly. Breakfast was always fresh, plentiful and delicious.... More

Thanks for your kind and clear review. I think it's a good idea to start with complimentary toiletries again. I'm going to search for nice little shampoo and soap'. Greetings, Sylvia More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay on the water in the Venice of the North: Amsterdam. This completely renovated B&B offers two luxury rooms with private bathrooms on this converted barge. The B&B has a private entrance on the boat, there is a breakfast kitchen for the guests, and you can enjoy the grand view of the eastern docklands on the deck terrace on a nice summer's day. Getting to and from the major highlights of Amsterdam (the canals, the museums) takes some easy 15 minutes by tram. Rental bikes are available at the ship. It is the perfect place to explore the city during the day and retreat to this peaceful B&B on the water for the night. If you arrive at the Central Station we can pick you up with our station wagon. ... more   less
