Staying in a houseboat was a great experience. It was located in a very beautiful area, the Jordaan is the Greenwich Village of Amsterdam. 10mins walk from the station and 15mins walk to the central touristy parts to the east. Café's (breakfast or lunch) are all around and Markets on certain days. The room was very spacious and nicely segregated... More

Unique and cool. We loved staying in the houseboat, for us the Jordaan is the best area in Amsterdam, you really feel like you're away from the more commercial side. There are some great cafes and bars around too. The folks who own the houseboat(s) are helpful and take the time to make sure you're happy and settled.

I feel so lucky to have stayed at the guest-houseboat. It was perfect and wish I could have stayed more nights! Studio room was good size for one or two, very clean and comfortable.The location is excellent (in the Jordaan district and close to central Amsterdam). Right on the canal, it's relaxing to have such a wonderful view of the... More

We thought we would enjoy staying in a houseboat, but did not realize the main advantage -- that, even when you are at 'home', you are in the neighborhood, in a way that is just not possible from a hotel room. (Well.... maybe if you had a room with a balcony overhanging a canal, but I haven't heard of one... More

We jumped at the chance to stay on a houseboat in Amsterdam and were not disappointed. Patricia provided a good level of detail in getting to the property, and we were met by Paul upon arrival. The boat was lovely, modern and with all general amenities. The space is a little small but it's to be expected. Nice touches such... More

We were allowed to chack in early as no one had stayed the night before. Inside the house boat is modern and... More

Immaculate accommodation and a gorgeous setting in the Jordaan area on the canal. The hosts were more than helpful with email communication before our trip. It felt like we had our own special little apartment with beautiful furnishings and a very clean and well equipped kitchen. Superb and we will be returning. Outstanding!

Finally I can review this wonderful accomodation in Amsterdam: last August we spent here lovely days. The houseboat is brand new and tastefully furnished; there is a fully equipped kitchenette (the supermarket is around the corner); the bathroom has a big shower... you can also enjoy a small outside platform from which to observe ducks, swans and boats passing by.......

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
